Last Thursday over 60 Bakersfield yelpers came out to The Padre Hotel's picturesque Prairie Fire rooftop deck to celebrate Yelp Bakersfield's Launch Party. Attendees sampled an array of beautifully presented dishes including coconut shrimp, gourmet meatballs, fresh bruschetta, mini sliders, cheese plates, and exquisite mini desserts. Toasting sparkling wine and Padre Hotel's Spartacus Tonic cocktail – guests enjoyed the musical jams of The Jay Smith Group feauring Marlon Mackey. As the sun set, Prairie Fire's stunning firepit accentuated the radiant faces of Bakersfield's growing Yelp community.
