Elite yelpers and their guests partied down at the uber trendy 901 Restaurant & Bar last week to celebrate the best week of the year: Yelp Drinks Week, a week-long, all-day, city-wide happy hour! How awesome an evening was it? In Natalie F's words: "Super ultra mega awesome!!!"
Guests got in the Yelp Drinks Week spirit with plenty of complimentary wine and house-brewed 901 Lager. Jon W stuck to the evening's "delicious" signature cocktail: the 901 Yelp Fizz, "served quickly and expertly by the friendly, highly skilled 901 staff." And one lucky yelper won the Yelp Hangover Kit, featuring bloody mary mix, sunglasses, sleep mask, The Hangover movie, "Avoid Ass Mouth" mints, and plenty of other necessities for the week's morning punishments.
Yelpers struggled to pick their favorites from amongst seemingly endless trays of mouth-watering morsels from 901's new Asian-inspired menu. Tracey G fell hard for the crab fritters, whose "curry kick put them at the top of the list for favorite crab dishes in the area," while Chris G thought the "tuna tartare with avocado mousse took the cake." Other popular goodies included roasted hoison duck rolls, sugarcane shrimp, spinach crisps, and gourmet chicken wings.
As the food kept coming and the drinks kept flowing, yelpers hit the dance floor and partied like the next morning's hangover would never arrive! As Abegail A explains, "DJ Jaime Mizell definitely knew how to get the party started (and keep it going). She even had me dancing on the toilet seat!" Bartenders donned Yelp shades, and servers were enticed to show off a couple moves as they moved through with their trays.
What better way to celebrate a week's worth of half-priced drinking! Click here to read the full reviews of what Theresa W calls "the best fun you can have with your clothes on!" Don't miss the rest of Chris Abi-Najm's fab photos of the evening's shenanigans on flickr.
