Yelp Phoenix Elite Celebration: The Yelpies on High Street

On November 7th, Elites and their guests gathered for a jam-packed night of celebrating on High Street in North Phoenix. With beautiful weather and great company, attendees were in for a night to remember. This year, we hosted a Yelpies awards ceremony to not only acknowledge all Elites, but specifically to highlight some of the best and brightest on the Yelp Phoenix squad. Attendees were welcomed to our own private section on High Street, equipped with music by DJ Curtis Whipple, a beautiful balloon-filled stage thanks to Little Party Parlor, an awesome array of Yelp schwag, a Volkswagen photo booth bus by Goof Booth, munchies, and more!

Upon arrival, guests were handed a passport with specials good at 13 different spots located within the shopping district. Participating businesses offered everything from an array of food and drinks, to mini spa services, crafts, discounts, and giveaways to everyone in attendance. Elites took fabulous photos along the way as they admired each shop and their beautiful decor, service, and offerings. In between exploring High Street, Yelpers gathered back together for an awards ceremony where select Elites received acknowledgment for being the Top Reviewer of 2018, Top Photographer of 2018, Most Social Yelper, Yelp Elite of the Year, and more. Recipients were overjoyed and received great praise from the community for their well-deserved accomplishments.

As the evening’s festivities came to an end, party-goers said their farewells and most importantly, are so grateful to now be familiar with High Street and the local businesses that make it thrive. We want to extend a huge thank you to the participating High Street community for welcoming us with open arms, and allowing Elites to experience the block in all of its glory!
