Fort Lauderdale Yelpies 2020

And the Yelpie goes to…

Last week about 90 Elites gathered for a first of its kind in Fort Lauderdale: the Virtual Yelpies. Our yearly award show went virtual this year, because of COVID19, but the rollercoaster year didn’t stop our Elites from sharing their recommendations and photos with the community, so it wasn’t going to stop our 8th annual award show.

This year we awarded traditional categories such as Reviewer of the Year and Photographer of the Year and included new categories such as Takeout Champ, Delivery Champ and Explorer of the Year. In total 21 Yelpies were awarded!
