Yelp Philly Elites kicked off the holiday season with Yelp's Hoppy Holidays at Field House. Nearly two hundred fifty guests attended the party, dressed in their finest holiday threads.
A main goal of the event was to introduce Yelpers to Field House's new and improved space. Recent renovations including an overhaul of the
food and drink program were highlighted. Chef Andrew Brown served up tasty treats including double bacon smoked popcorn, chopped salad, short ribs and mash, crab mac and cheese and more. An extensive beer and wine list was available for Yelpers to whet their palates.With so many people in attendance, check-in was a bit slower than usual. Field House came to the rescue by extending the event a full half hour, so that everyone could enjoy themselves. About an hour into the event, local band Cheers Elephant took the stage to entertain the masses.
In keeping with the true spirit of the season, donations of twin sheet sets were collected for Project H.O.M.E., a local non-profit geared towards breaking the cycle of homelessness. Bags upon bags of Yelper donations were delivered to the organization the day after the event. Many thanks to all who participated in this effort!
Yelp's Hoppy Holidays was our largest Yelp Elite Event of the year, and many thanks go out to Tim and everyone on staff at Field House. Yelp Elite Ali E "can't wait to play some more with the fine people of Yelp in 2013!" Cheers to the 2012 Yelp Philly Elite Squad for a great year!
