San Francisco Yelpers kicked off the long Labor Day weekend with a Back to Cool launch party at Rickshaw Bags this past Friday night in Dogpatch. Rickshaw Bags is a truly SFMade, San Francisco-based bag company inspired by the creative energy of the city, urban cycling and propelled by the intense desire to make great bags and products. Yelpers were able to check out their unique space and see behind the scenes of how they make all of their versatile messenger goodies, while toasting ice cold cups of delicious (and local!) Speakeasy Beer. Jamming out to the swanky stylings of DJ Sonny Phono, yelpers roamed around the warehouse while indulging in a decadent array of lovely local desserts as well.
Miz Lynn's Pies entertained with an assortment of picture perfect pies, including sweet potato, ginger-yam, lemon, and strawberry chocolate. TeaRoom Chocolates had a delightful display of organic creative tea-infused chocolates such as Earl Grey and Spicy Masala Chai. Frozen Kuhsterd excited the crowd with creamy spiked Cereal Milk Frozen Custard, while Dash Cafe pleased many 'a palate with their signature caramelized waffle bites. Taste of Happiness spread sugary good vibes by way of their miniature cookie-dough gluten free cupcakes, while California Coffee Cake Company dazzled guests with their homemade moist assortment of blueberry and chocolate scones, and phenomenal display of almond and spiced cake.
Additionally, yelpers were able to capture the sugar-laden good times with SnapFiesta's Rickshaw-themed photo-booth… check out the fun photos here. Donning festive hats and accessories, yelpers glammed it up, with beer and sweet samples in hand, and the night ended with a lucky yelper winning the Yelp Check-In Raffle and walking away with a one-of a kind new Rickshaw Bag.
