On Wednesday, December 13th, Yelp Phoenix Elites donned their ugliest holiday apparel and celebrated the end of a 5-star Yelp Elite year at Pita Jungle! The saying is true, it is very NEAT to be Elite here in the Valley. Elites enjoyed showing off their ugly sweaters and mingling with each other while enjoying delicious bites and sips throughout this festive affair.
As Elites arrived, they checked in to the Yelp event listing to receive an ugly sweater necklace, entered a raffle for holiday prizes, and received their drink tickets for 2 fresh, made-to-order cocktails of their choice whipped up by the fabulous Pita Jungle team. They also received stickers to vote for their 3 favorite sweaters.
Next, guests took their seats and nibbled on hummus trios and pita bread while sipping on their craft cocktails, and ordering a tasty entree from an extra special Elite menu. This menu included everything from pitas, wraps, and burgers, to salads, flatbreads, and even Chicken Tikka Masala! Elites loved the wide selection that they were able to choose from and the amazing service that went along with it. All cocktails and dishes are fresh and made from scratch. Not to mention, everything came out of the kitchen so fast! Fresh, healthy, and fast? Yes, please! This is what makes Pita Jungle a local gem.
After dinner, it was time to see who won the Ugly Sweater Contest! Elites lined up and were eliminated based on who had the most stickers. First, second, and third place prizes were given but honestly, everyone was a winner in our book! The sweaters and outfits were super impressive. Elites had a blast mingling and choosing which sweater they thought was the ugliest. Two Instagram contest winners were also announced for $50 Pita Jungle gift cards. As this 5-star evening wrapped up, Elites were sent on their way with Walnut Baklawa Rolls and other goodies from Pita Jungle.
A HUGE thank you to the amazing team at Pita Jungle Uptown for hosting this outstanding 5-star affair! As always, thank you to Eric Castanos for capturing the evening. Relive this memorable affair by reading the reviews and viewing the photos.
