Yelp’s Badge Day 2020 in Los Angeles

The newly minted Yelp LA Elite Squad gathered to celebrate another year of all things local at Valley Relics!  Yelpers took a step back in time perusing an airplane hanger full of old school LA memorabilia. From neon signs to classic cars to a retro arcade (that you can play!), Valley Relics is truly a hidden gem right in LA’s backyard. “This is clearly a labor of love–and one that’s a joy to visit! Well worth the visit for any Angelino, or those interested in LA history and design,” says Yelp Elite Daniel W.

It wouldn’t be an Elite shindig without some sips and savors! Yelp Elites got a taste of 20 food and drink vendors from LA and beyond. The stand outs? Craft cocktails from LA Speakeasy,  Korean fried chicken from Jesse Boy, and freshly baked pastries from the Valley’s own Breadologie Bakery (we could go on and on!). Between bites, guests busted out their best karaoke song in The Gold Karaoke Room and created custom YES! pins to sport for the year ahead.
