The 2021 Yelpies Awards Show at The Brown Palace



Tuesday evening marked our most special night of the year, the annual Yelpies Awards Show. We’ve been dealt a tough hand these last few years, so the opportunity to gather together in person amplified the experience from 10 to 11. Paired with the unmatched holiday decor of the historic Brown Palace Hotel, the night was, dare we say, perfect.

We cannot thank The Brown Palace enough for hosting 200 members of our community. Guests were wined and dined at the second floor Brown Palace Club and Onyx Room, before heading downstairs to Ellyngton’s for coffee and dessert. Fan favorites included Chicken Pot Pie, Tuna Nicoise, made to order Caesar Salad and a selection of hand crafted cocktails. The first rate food and drink were matched by the unparalleled holiday decorations and mesmerizing chandelier.

The dispersing of The 2021 Yelpies Awards took place at Ellyngton’s. Thanks to the enthusiasm of the Yelp Elite Squad, the ceremony was a wild ride—full of laughs and tears of joy.
