whose yelp days date back to ’05, claims the Yelp
event at Friendship Chinese was her “favorite Yelp event to date”. It’s safe to say many yelpers agree that the
cocktail hour followed by a 3 course complimentary dinner was absolutely
The night began with some tasty Tiger Beer with thanks to our
favorite beer rep (Miss Dawn L!),
as well as a few delicious appetizers. The food & the fun didn’t stop there because Friendship
Chinese knows how to feed a group of 100 hungry yelpers! After finding our seats our fantastic servers
immediately brought out a pork confit filled “porky pines” taro root
dumpling. Mmm, Mmmm…good! And then it
came time to choose between the scrumptious sounding steak or salmon. Taylor O
was all about the curry sauce on his salmon, while Erika G
found her steak to be “meaty-licious”.
A few lucky yelpers took home raffle prizes from both
Friendship Chinese and Tiger Beer. The
lucky couple award for the evening goes to raffle prize winners, Adam S
and his lovely +1, Cristin. And after 2 years of attending Yelp events Mesum N
finally took home a prize (besides his usual yelp party hangover).
Thanks to the staff, including Nikki L,
at Friendship Chinese for providing us with such an amazing experience! And a special thank to Tiger Beer for keeping
the beer flowing all night long. To view the talented Dan G’s photos from the evening click here.
