Yelp Toronto: “Don’t Worry, Be Crappy”

Toronto-1Maybe what you thought was Thursday turned out to only be Tuesday, or maybe your coworkers finally discovered that teen pop playlist on your work computer. Whatever the occasion, sometimes we all just feel a little crappy.

Lucky for 150 Toronto Elites and their guests, Yelp was ready to turn that frown upside-down and then right back around again with a night of drinks to drown the sorrows, snacks to silence the swear words, and company that loved misery at our Yelp's Elite Crappy Hour!

Hosted by the anything-but-crappy Gladstone Hotel, this Crappy Hour was the perfect solution for a day of suck. Greeted with envelopes of free crap like discounts on dinner and even a surprise room stay for lucky Jennifer K, Elites got the party crap-a-lackin' surrounded by old friends and fresh faces. "Catching up with everyone," turned out to be the perfect cure for Yvonne T's "Yelp Elite withdrawal."


With a martini bar slinging Cosmos and Blue Lagoons, a Margarhita station tipping the tequila, and our friends from Mill Street Brewery popping bottles, sneers turned to smiles as Elites cheersed to crap. "Cosmos, blue lagoons, and beer" had Steph L wishing she "had more hands," while the "out of control" lime and straberry margs might have made Lauren M waking up feeling like P. Diddy on Wednesday.

Bite-sized crappetizers were a hot commodity as chicken wings, sliders, fish tacos, and shrimp cocktail lettuce rolls were shoved into faces. Elaine K wasn't shy about rolling up her sleeves for the "snacks that were ridiculously messy." But wait! Elites weren't the only ones well fed that night. Edwin K noticed a food-filled "table by the entrance look pretty high by the end" with donations for Five Hole For Food!

If you haven't already, be sure to review the crap out of our Elite Event and catch all the photos on Flickr. Feeling crappy that it's all over? Cheer up – the Gladstone is hosting Crappy Hour every day of the week with wallet-friendly food and drink specials from 5-8pm!

Thanks again to all our sponsors: the Gladstone Hotel, Mill Street Brewery, VenueWize for the high-tech check-ins, and Paul Hillier for photography that never crapped out!

Saying so long with a crappy selfie,


Your hosts Crystal H and Ben B.
