Many would attest there's no better way to celebrate warm nights in the city than with a cold refreshing cocktail and good company. And that's just what went down at Yelp's Historic Yelp Elite Event at Jasper's Corner Tap and Kitchen last night.
Jasper's is inspired by one of San Francisco's first surveyors, the legendary Jasper O' Farrell. Jasper's pays homage to the history and culture of the social city Jasper O'Farrell envisioned by putting interesting twists on classic pub food, and through their extensive beer selection and their notable cocktail menu.
Concurrently, yelpers paid homage to ol' Jasper O'Farrell by donning outfits depicting their favorite historical figures! From stewardess outfits, to fun bunny costumes, to two girls dressed as the famous "We Can Do It" poster, yelpers celebrated the theme with some unique get-ups. Upon arrival, yelpers were able to learn more about the wonderful local charity Wonder Dog Rescue, staffed by their awesome volunteer Morita who came equipped with a slew of great information and with a ton of adorable puppy pictures.
The gorgeous wood adorned bar boasted three remarkable drinks which captured the essence of Jasper's perfectly. There was an Improved Manhattan with Wild Turkey Bourbon, an Espolon Paloma, as well as Negroni on tap (yes, on tap!). Jasper's not only delighted yelpers with their formidable drinks, but they also satiated appetites with samples from their gastropub menu. Well known for their deviled eggs, their staff passed around an impressive Deviled Egg Trio – which included a Cesaer Salad Deviled Egg, a Garden Medley Egg, as well as a Spicy Romesco Egg. The chef revealed at the end of the night that they went through 800 eggs! The kitchen also showcased house made sausage with yellow mustard, house cured sausage on crostini, as well as some tantalizing homemade caramel corn in miniature boxes for yelpers to take away with them.
