Last Wednesday, Yelp’s San Francisco Elite Squad was treated to an afternoon of lunchtime fun! The group started with a walking tour of Chinatown by Avital Tours followed by an amazing lunch at the most lavish & beautiful restaurant, China Live. Elites were given the VIP treatment with things like: a dumpling making class, a beautiful lunch (see photos below), swag from Yelp and private tours of the multi level restaurant.
Here’s what one of the elites had to say, “Great event in many ways, probably one of the best I’ve ever attended by Yelp! Upon meeting, we were given Yelp water bottles and sunglasses (v cute, thx). Initially wished I could have brought a +1, but because it wasn’t, this became one of the most interactive events I’ve gone to and it made me appreciate it that much more. The walking tour was short but sweet and pretty informative and it was a really nice day out for the walk too (lucky us). We learned a bit about Chinatown and about North Beach too. The Dragon’s Gate wasn’t too far of a walk to China Live. Upon arrival, there was a dumpling making station and a wine bar for those of us who were waiting to make dumplings (or for the food). My dumpling babies weren’t very cute, but this was very interactive and fun and I appreciated the tips from China Live’s staff”…read the full review here!
