Chicago Burbs 2018 Elite Badge Celebration At El Tapeo

It was a special Monday night indeed as 80 Yelp Elites and their guests gathered at El Tapeo for a swanky night out on the 9th floor of the Le Méridien hotel in Oak Brook. The night was filled with modern Spanish tapas, paella, sangria, and celebrating 2018 Elite Badges!

Everyone mingled with the help of our Yelp BINGO icebreaker game and we raffled off spa gift cards, paella demonstrations, and El Tapeo gift cards to six lucky winners. Delicious and flavorful carne y cabra, coca, and croquettes de pancita cerdo filled the room and Yelpers lined up to enjoy the beautiful and tasty paella de diablo and paella de mezclado.

The real highlight of the night though was honoring our 2017 Yelpie Award Winners! The awards were both voted on by fellow Elites and determined based on hard numbers. We celebrated a total of ten top notch Elite members who earned everything from “Reviewer of the Year” to “Yelptime Achievement Award”.

For the full details on this special celebration, check out the reviews and peep the photos.
