HURRAY !

Le coup d’envoi des soirées Elite à Bruxelles a sonné, ce lundi 23 avril ! Pour célébrer l’évènement, une centaine de Yelpeurs ont fièrement arboré leur « nametags » à l'Amour Fou, resto-bar encore trop méconnu des bruxellois (mais ça ne saurait tarder). Un cadre convivial, un public jovial et éclectique, en route pour cet afterwork haut en couleurs (surtout la couleur rouge hein) et en musique ! 

Ce sont les deux jeunes propriétaires des lieux, passionnés de bonne bouffe et de vieux vinyles, j’ai nommé les sympathiques Pierre et Nassim, qui ont tenu les rennes culinaires de cette soirée. Au menu : Chips de légumes, Nachos et sa guacamole fraîche, émincé de Bœuf cru mariné, dippings, tapenades d'olives noires et purée de carotte au chèvre. Verdict en 5 lettres : Y-U-M-M-Y, que Melany R reformule en : « Super muy bueno » (avec l’accent mexicain bien entendu).

Plutôt rouge, rosé ou blanc ? Le vin maison de l’Amour Fou, servi par les charmantes Alex et Séverine, se laissait boire comme du petit lait *. Les fans de bières n’étaient pas déçus eux non plus ! Quoi de plus normal que d’accompagner ces petites bouchées Tex-Mex par une Corona ou deux, partenaire officiel de l’événement (via Jetimport). Les plus braves (oui, c’était lundi tout de même) ont eux le temps d’hésiter entre les goûts Sureau, Litchi, Plantes ou Gingembre-Orange, offert par Bionade

Pour le plaisir de nos oreilles, le dj bruxellois Rick Shiver nous a bercé avec une musique House, douce et entrainante, parfaite pour rythmer les discussions qui allaient bon train. En deuxième partie de soirée, c’est le duo belge Joy Wellboy qui nous a offert un showcase privé et accoustique, avec comme point d’orgue, leur chanson « San Francisco Bay »…comme quoi, le hasard fait parfois bien les choses ! (Et oui, Yelp est né à SF). Duo complice et énergétique, une belle cerise sur le gâteau pour cette soirée découverte.

Profitons-en aussi pour remercier Nicolas Lefébure et Olivier G (Full Tunes Production) d’avoir couvert l’événement à coup de photos et de séquences vidéo !

Nous laisserons à Maxime A l’honneur de résumer cette première soirée Elite : « Pleins de gens super sympas, des sourires sur tous les visages, des boissons en veux-tu-en-voilà, de fameuses rencontres, le tout, dans un lieu super cool, LE PIED TOTAL ! ». On comprend mieux la question de Nico V : « a quand la prochaine ? » Bientôt Nico, c’est promis !

Promis aussi Melany R, on réfléchira à deux fois avant de te couvrir de tatouages « I LOVE YELP » 😉 … ou pas (hihi).

HURRAY!

Monday 23rd of april was the kick-off date of Brussels’ Yelp Elite Events ! Approximately 100 Yelpers gathered at l’Amour Fou, a too little-known (but not for long) bar & restaurant in the Ixelles neighbourhood. A comfy venue, a jolly crowd, off we go to what has been a colorful (mainly Yelp red of course) afterwork party.

Pierre and Nassim, the two young owners, both passionate about food and old vinyls, were the culinary Kings of the evening. On the menu : Vegetable chips, fresh guacamole and it’s nachos, marinated thin sliced beef, dippings, black olives tapenades and carrot purée with goat cheese. Our verdict in 5 letters: Y-U-M-M-Y, that Melany R loves to rephrase in « Super muy bueno » (with a lovely mexican accent of course). Red, white or rosé, the house wine, served by the charming barmaids Alex and Séverine, surely went down a treat. More fond of a beer ? What about a Corona ? Official partner of the event (via Jetimport) and the perfect tex-mex match with these types of snacks. The wiser ones (it was Monday, yeah right) could choose between different kinds of Bionade refreshments, another official sponsor.

Now, what would be a party without great music ? For this launch, we were happy to welcome one of Brussels’ best Dj, Rick Shiver ! He played a smooth house music set, that fitted perfectly in this beautiful framework. Towards the end of the night, we had the chance to listen to the upcoming Belgian duo Joy Wellboy for an exclusive acoustic showcase ! Highlight of the night, their song talking about the San Francisco Bay ! I guess Fate knows what it's doing… Amazing and energetic gig, a lovely way to top it all.

Thanks to Nicolas Lefébure and Olivier G (Full Tunes Production) for the photo and video shooting.

Maxime A wrapped it up his own way: « Loads of great people, smiles on everyone’s faces, tons of drinks, great meetings, all this, in a very cool spot. It surely was a crazy night ! ». Now we see why Nico V is asking : « When is the next one ? ». Very soon Nico, promised !

 Oh and Melany R, promised, next time we’ll think twice before covering your body with « I LOVE YELP » tattoos…or maybe not 😉 (hihi)
