After a long hiatus, the Long Island Yelp Elite Squad gathered IRL today for a two-hour happy hour reunion! With close to 35 Elites and several Yelp enthusiasts in attendance, we took over the gorgeous rear patio of Sonny’s Canal House (with the General Manager’s approval of course!). Sonny’s is an old school bar and restaurant located in the beautiful waterfront town of Baldwin Harbor, Long Island. Fun fact: they’ve been serving the neighborhood since 1906!
This Community Manager Yelp Event (CMYE), was hosted by local Community Manager, Jared S. Throughout the evening, he dished out complimentary drink tickets as well some exclusive Yelp Schwag, such as Yelp Koozies and Yelp Tote Bags! The atmosphere was all smiles and laughter as everyone ate, drink, and took group selfies on the dock overlooking the array of boats below.
While Sonny’s Canal House is quite laid back and casual compared to most waterfront venues, don’t let the non-pretentious vibe fool you- Yelpers raved about their outstanding food the entire time! From their stuffed clams and mussels to their chips with fresh spinach dip and baked potato skins.. there was something delicious for everyone. Several Elites were so impressed that they even stayed for dinner!
This happy hour reunion was such a fun way to kickoff our official lineup of summer Elite Events. If you experienced major FOMO by reading this, be sure to keep an eye on the Elite Calendar for what’s next!
