Yelpers In Calgary Kick Off A Weekend Of Urban Exploring With Our Biggest Party Yet!

Nearly 300 Yelpers from all across Calgary kicked off a weekend of urban exploring at Theatre Junction GRAND on Friday with our friends from Doors Open YYC! Party goers were treated to live music from local band Bell Tower courtesy of Studio 014, eats from Black Betty Burger & Wine Bar, Belgo Brasserie, Tandoori Grill and Heaven Artisan GF Cuisine and cocktails courtesy of Tito's Handmade Vodka!


The evening kicked off with VIP hour – open to the Yelp Elite Squad and special guests. Attendees enjoyed first dibs on food and drink and enjoyed a special appearance from the Sugar Sweets!


Pulled pork sliders from Black Betty Burger & Wine Bar, braised short beef sliders from Belgo Brasserie, spring rolls from Tandoori Grill and gluten-free/dairy-free chocolate flourless cake from Heaven Artisan GF Cuisine kept tummies from growling while local flair bartender, Paul Newnham, mixed up Texas Sippers, Tito's Kickin' Mules and Tito's Sonic from Tito's Handmade Vodka.


Guests also mixed and mingle with the Doors Open YYC team and learned all about this city-wide festival in its 2nd year! Whether you’re a geek for history, architecture, the environment, art, sports, science or engineering, it was your chance at an insider’s view of Calgary’s vibrant and dynamic cityscape!
