And the Yelpie goes to…
Yesterday about 100 Elites gathered for a first of its kind in Buffalo: the Virtual Yelpies. Our yearly award show went virtual this year, because of COVID19, but the rollercoaster year didn’t stop our Elites from sharing their recommendations and photos with the community, so it wasn’t going to stop our award show!
This year we awarded traditional categories such as Reviewer of the Year and Photographer of the Year and included new categories such as Takeout Champ, Delivery Champ and Explorer of the Year. In total 15 Yelpies were awarded!
James Altucher and Rich Aronovitch took the virtual stage to provide some stand up entertainment before the big award reveal. As Joy B put it, “The jokes were hysterical.” DJ Rock kept the beats playing with an after award virtual dance party!
Congrats to all of the nominees and winners, but thank you to every member of the Yelp Elite Squad in Buffalo/Niagara. Each and everyone of you make this the special community it is.
