Philly Elites Get Happy!

Friday evening ushered in Yelp Philadelphia's August Elite Event at ING Direct Café! Yelp's Great American Happy Hour featured a rock and roll soundtrack, Phillies baseball, photos by local artist Keith Manning and seventy-five Yelp Elites fresh off a hard day's work and ready to get their weekend started!

On the menu were hot dogs and veggie dogs in several variations from Underdogs, an enormous cheese and veggie display from Power Events, and sweet treats and coffee beverages from ING Direct Café. Boozier options were generously provided by Spodee, a Depression-era style hooch wine, and Batch 19 pre-Prohibition style lager.

Although many guests "had no idea what to expect," all were happy to discover "that ING Direct Café was a great venue; cool and low key with a great, friendly staff." As an extra special bonus, Elites walked with generous goody bags courtesy of ING, which contained a card for five free beverages, a copy of Rock Then Roll by ING's founding CEO Arkadi Kuhlmann, and a koozie!
