We're not sure if it was the temperate climate, the zen patio, the endless buffet, the wine tasting, or the fresh tunes that kept East Bay Elites in high spirits. Whatever it was, nothing stopped 180 yelpers from getting down at the East Meets West party at Walnut Creek's The Door!
The evening kicked off with a wine tasting trifecta. Jazz Cellars, Foggy Bridge Winery, and Aver Family Vineyards schooled guests with their several varietals, and as elites swilled their vino, hardworking servers applied the finishing touches to a grand buffet-style layout. Elites gorged on the expansive offerings featuring Chef Sudar's delectable dishes like pad thai, chicken curry, coconut rice, spring rolls, and watermelon salad.
With bits of remaining sun peaking in, elites chilled outdoors in the serene setting with their plentiful plates. Tickled by a lush, green panorama, guests lounged while taking in tunes by DJ Ruggy Fresh (aka Ruggy). Clicking Widmer beers, sipping on sake cocktails, laughing with old and new friends, this foodie gathering did summer right! Ivy R says it best: "I just can't believe how cool Yelp is sometimes. I just really can't." Well, it's all thanks to the yelpers who make us cool.
