In February 2020, the Elite Squads of the Triangle and the Triad teamed up to face off in an interactive, virtual trivia night hosted by Community Managers, Janet R. and Erik S., and The Idiot Box Comedy Club. Cider cocktail kits were also available for purchase for all attendees. What more? Prizes! First and second place teams both won some awesome swag, courtesy of Bull City Ciderworks, after the event.
What an amazing, fun, interactive event! I’m not going to lie… I usually get super distracted with virtual events (I prefer in-person events so much more), and I didn’t expect too much from tonight’s Yelp Elite Event. Oh my my, how wrong was I 🙂 This was the best virtual event I’ve ever attended. Period.
Before the party started, Elites were given a sneak peak of Bull City Ciderworks’ newest taproom in Greensboro, via a virtual tour. Additionally, event kits composed of three customized crowlers were provided to aid in the creation of three unique cider cocktails. Laura, from Bull City Ciderworks, walked us through each recipe in between each round of trivia. Trivia topics included categories, music, North Carolina, and numbers. Each round, all eight teams were split into break out rooms where they put their brains together to come up with their best answers.
A big thank you to our event partners:
