Food. Drinks. Music. Art. Vibes. Welcome… to Yelpchella!
On July 11 almost 400 Yelpers from Broward-Palm Beach got together, at Young At Art Museum, for the biggest Yelp event of the year. The music festival inspired event featured over 40 food and drink sponsors, a neon lounge with DJ Joey Tracks, a chill beer garden by IKEA Sunrise (with smooth acoustic cover songs), a giant blanket fort (by IKEA Sunrise) and a giant Yelp flower wall. It was a shock to the senses, with a special treat around every corner.
The Beer Garden (sponsored by IKEA Sunrise) featured a chill seating area, 14 breweries and some bites from local favorites. The lush decor transported guests from a museum in Davie, to a magical green oasis. Or, maybe they were just enjoying too many sips of craft beer.
The evening was all fun – and good eats – it was also all for a good cause. The evening was a fundraiser for our host venue – Young At Art Museum – and over $4,000 was raised to help support all of the great programs YAA has to bring art to underprivileged communities in Broward County.
In the theme of love, the event also served as the unveiling of the brand new exhibit to YAA, sponsored by Yelp: XOXO: Love & Art On Ft. Lauderdale Beach. Members of the Yelp Elite Squad were asked to submit their best photos of Fort Lauderdale Beach. From gorgeous beach views, to delectable bites on the beach, and everything in between.
The museum chose their favorites and converted the lobby of YAA into a photo exhibit celebrating our beach. Photos from our Elites will adorn the lobby of YAA for the next few months.
Thank you to everyone that came out, to all of our sponsors and most importantly to Young At Art Museum for having us! What, a night! Till next year, See You On Yelp!
