It my have been the day after Valentine's Day, but there was sure some love still lingering in the air at BOKX 109 American Prime, our first event in the suburbs, where 150 pink-and-red clad Elites gathered to celebrate their mutual affection for all things Yelp, including (but not limited to) mouth-watering food, strong cocktails, good company and booty-shaking tunes!
Taking one look at the menu for the evening, it's pretty obvious that the way to a yelper's heart is through the stomach. Dish after dish made its way from the open kitchen, including samples of porcini-dusted beef strip loin, lobster pot pie, mushroom dumplings and crispy goat-cheese truffles. To heat things up and loosen those hips, a beer and wine bar boasting Victory Beer, Chardonay and Merlot was on hand, as well as DonQ Rum with a specially-crafted menu, featuring the Coco Breeze, the Lemon Fizz and the Dark & DonQ, a favorite of Caitlin C.
With palettes pleasured and livers loved, the show was just getting started as Boston's own Justin Timberlake cover band, The Timberfakes, took the stage and rocked the house for a solid hour, blasting out JT hits such as "Cry Me a River," "Sexy Back," and that infamous diddy from SNL. Adding to their usual repertoire, they brought on the funk with a little MGMT and LCD Sound System! Want more of The Timerbfakes?

To sweeten the evening, Yelp Elites took home some throw-back lunchboxes, and brought and exchange adorable hand-crafted Valentine's Cards. Be sure to check out all the reviews and pictures, snappy by our very own Sara S, for some fun and festive visuals of this heart-throbbing night.
