The Yelpies Celebrated #10YearsOfYelp And Local Businesses In Buffalo


Have you checked out the Dig Coworking Space yet? We did! Along with hundreds of Yelpers and dozens of businesses to celebrate #10YearsOfYelp and our local community as well as raise money for WEDI Buffalo. Guests were treated to a much anticipated debut of Big Ditch Brewing's first batch of beer (look for them to open soon!) along with freshly rolled sushi from Teton Kitchen, incredible truffles from Blue Table Chocolates, summer champagne gazpacho from Daniel's Restaurant, beet salad from Ulrich's, a delicious assortment of Buffalo-flavored popcorn and other snacks from Creekside Gourmet (who also hosted the beloved Rectum Wrecker Challenge). *Takes a breath*

Other highlights included locally distilled vodka from Lockhouse Distillery, sangria from Templeton Landing, delicious brisket from Dinosaur BBQ, lobster bisque and Moroccan Chickpea Salad from The Archer, Mini Bahn Mi Sliders and Bacon Jam Bruschetta from The Griffon Pub, marscarpone fig and balsamic rounds from La Belle Epicure and dearly beloved Ashker's Cold Press Tap! Phew. Check out the photos here and the reviews of the event here.

Aside from all the delicious eats and drinks, businesses and Yelpers were awarded Yelpie awards. See the full list of winners below. If you were not able to attend the event and would like to claim your Yelpies trophy, please email
