Northern VA Yelpers Get Lucky on Friday the 13th


Northern Virginia's first-ever Yelper Party — the biggest, baddest, boldest event that Yelp throws — went down under the full strawberry moon this past Friday the 13th, and we couldn't have been luckier! Yelp Gets Lucky brought Yelpers together to nosh, sip, dance, enjoy live music, get aura and tarot card readings, massages, caricatures, and so much more! Check out reviews from the epic night here, and check out photos from the event on Flickr.

A HUGE round of applause to the Torpedo Factory Art Center for hosting us wild & crazy Yelpers, as well as all the wonderful vendors who turned it up for this party! On the noms front, we had deliciousness supplied by To Your Taste Catering, Fish Market Restaurant, Landini Brothers, TropQ Creamery, Blackfinn Ameripub, Glory Days Grill, FANFARE Eatery, sweetgreen, Krave Jerkey, and Coyote Grille.

Snaps to Tito's Handmade Vodka, Natrona Bottling Company, and Sugar Rim Bar for serving it up with some serious flair!, as well as Bai, Capital Teas, Bloomery Sweetshine, and Mad Fox Brewing Co.

And let us not forget all the other amazing businesses that brought Yelp Gets Lucky to the next level! There was the Get Lucky Lounge and lighting provided by Electric Entertainment, Ben Powell Photography's slow motion video booth, digital caricatures from Sketchfaces DC, Photo in a Box's ragin' photobooth, beautification from Salon Simis, tarot card readings from Elite Tarot, massages from VIP Mobile Day Spa, aura readings from Dahn Yoga, as well as giveaways and activities from Origami Owl, Ten Thousand Villages, Sassy Tall Girls, and The Worx by Maia.

Special thanks also goes to KWIII and Classified Frequency for rocking our faces off, as well as Electric Entertainment for dropping some seriously sick beats.
