On a dark and rainy Tuesday night Denver Elite yelpers and their plus ones cozied up inside Japoix Restaurant for Yelp's Perfect Pair. There were gathered there to sample two wines that are brand new to the market – Slanted Door Riesling from the Columbia Valley in Washington State and Posh red wine from the Northern Coast of California were both being poured by the lovely folks at Baroness Wines as tastings or full glasses. And since the two wines are both a perfect pairing for Asian inspiried meals, the chefs at Japoix were on hand turning out classics from the kitchen like sushi rolls, bruschetta, edamame, stir fried beef with noodles, and even veggie tempura and quinoa vegan sushi for our non-meat eating friends. Beyond the wine, some yelpers braved the Electric French Kiss, which Terry B calls, "the most mouthnumbing, incredible shot ever!
Elites were greeted at the door by the lovely Kelly T who gave them the latest and greatest Elite Event – watches! And in other take-home goodies, Chinese take out boxes were scattered about with Yelp fortunes, one of which definitely came true!
Besides being encouraged to dress alike, whether that was in color, style, or actual matching outfits Denver yelpers also found themselves with a Mah-Jong card in hand, searching for their matching piece. Once the two were reunited, yelpers holding the cards were invited to hug or high five and many of them chose to do both! As Rachel M put it, "This was the best Tuesday night I've enjoyed in quite a while!" Many, many thanks to those of you that made it out and mad props to photographer Jess Palmer for snapping the memories.
