If there is one thing the Yelp Portland Elite Community enjoys it’s getting to know and embracing a new business all while sampling the product and having a good time. This event was no different aside from the fact that the host business was a tad unlike others they’ve connected with before.
Yelp recently teamed up with Grön Cafe, which means green in Swedish; an artisanal chocolate shop that is committed to providing chocolate made from sustainably sourced and fairly traded cocao beans. Among the many things that makes Grön special, is their continued commitment to providing natural alternatives for pain by providing CBD properties infused in their chocolate. Derived from the bark of an Asian pine tree, it is completely marijuana-free, and anyone can enjoy its benefits. Including the Yelp Elite community last week at the Elite Event: Yelp Knows Its ABCBDs at Grön Cafe.
From deliciously, fresh craft ‘mocktails’ infused with the CBD oils to savory and sweet Caprese salad bites drizzled with CBD chocolate infused balsamic dressing – every item so graciously provided by Grön featured the carefully created and Oregon’s first fully compliant edible processor (certified by the Oregon Dept. of Agriculture and the Oregon Health Authority).
Also in attendance was the PDX Photo Lounge snapping some solid shots of our Yelp Portland Elites. With a glittery gold sequin backdrop to really capture the fabulousness of the guests, the PDX Photo Lounge really completed the event with quality pics and super fun photo props. Plus, every guest that posed for a pic was able to take home a picture of the memorable evening.
And to make the evening even better, the guests were privy to some more knowledge about the business with and some lucky raffle winners even walked away with some goodies, and even a gift basket with high-value Grön items. But every guest was really a winner as they were gifted a generously-stuffed Grön goodie bag on their way home. To learn more about the event, read the reviews and check out the photos here.
A huge thank you our event partners, Grön Cafe and PDX Photo Lounge!
