The Berghoff Restaurant was the scene for YelptoberFest, a dynamic blend of Yelp and the time honored German tradition, Oktoberfest! A beautiful autumn day set the tone, and as yelpers spilled into the historic Century Room at the Berghoff, it became apparent that the celebration was going to be a stellar way to jump start the Fall of ’08!
Chicago’s Yelp Elite Squad came out in full force to celebrate all things German, and were greeted by the sounds of an upbeat German orchestra and a decadent spread of traditional delicacies; bratwurst with sauerkraut, mini rueben sandwiches, potato pancakes with spiced applesauce, mushroom caps stuffed with spinach dip, and soft pretzels with spicy mustard. Couple that with a bevy of tasty beverages (mmm, cucumber vodka cocktails!), Oktoberfest beer offerings, a Berghoff beer sampling station and conclude with cheesecake lollipops and apple streudel, and well…you’ve got a feast fit for the Yelp Elite queens and kings!
Regan B was the lucky winner of the Big Berghoff Raffle, and and Julie E and Jordan B polka’ed their little yelps out, much to the enjoyment of the crowd! On hand to catch all the “oompah” action was the lovely Victoria S of Sprung Photo…check out the snapshots here!
So, y’all better be recovered for the Halloween Bash….word on the street is Yelp’s prepping up something special…start planning!
Danke, you beautiful people!
