On December 18th, over 80 members of the Yelp Fort Lauderdale Elite Squad gathered at Burlock Coast on Fort Lauderdale Beach for our annual tradition, the Yelpies. Each year, we host the Yelpies award ceremony to highlight some of the best and brightest Elites in Fort Lauderdale.
Attendees were welcomed into the seaside restaurant with music by Joey Tracks and delicious refreshments such as the Burlock Ponche, a housemade seasonal punch made with Wray and Nephew Rum; Coquitos, Mount Gay Rum with coconut cream, dram all spice & half and half; Hibiscus Martinis, Kettle One Vodka, lemon, hibiscus syrup and rose water; or their choice of white or red wine.
Guests nibbled on a delectable array of bites from the charcuterie station, as well as, tuna poke with tostones, ricotta and swank tomato toast, charred octopus or grilled beef tenderloin with chimichurri sauce.
And, without further ado, the Yelpie goes to….
