On Tuesday night, Yelp Toronto’s wide-eyed Elite Squad gathered together to answer the question: “what are you looking at?” by donning their dancing shoes, some hipster sunglasses and meeting at —where else— What Are You Looking At nightclub and lounge in Leslieville.

The east-end venue took a little travelling, but it was well worth it for peeps like Tony F. "I'm glad Yelp has come back to the East Siiyeeeed." The long and narrow space let elites old and new mingle and get their Yelp on!
Down-the-street caterers Loic Gourmet doled out delicious and decadent vittles that evening. The roasted Pear wrapped In Niagara prosciutto with toasted walnuts was definitely a hit. Payam Z "had a fun time trying to guess what was inside before we finally unravelled the treat!"
And what would an elite party be without eye-popping drinks? Tony F was "happy to have Carlsberg as the beer of choice," and Absolut Vodka played a starring role in the night's signature cocktail, "The Look." Jennifer M unquestionably felt the drink's boozy and bittersweet gaze: "those cocktails were serious. That was no lackluster punch. Wheew!"
It's not an optical illusion: there were glow-sticks to single out newbies, glow-wand battles, an ice-breaking frog hat: it was a spectacle. There was also a door-prize raffle as a special bonus for the guests. Karen S had her eye on the grand prize: "Donkey Kong Jenga is going to be a lot of fun at our next girls' night!"
As the night rolled on, it became harder to resist the stylings of DJ Sumation who dutifully spun solid beats. Steph L's focus was on the "old school classics that kept us grooving all night!" First-time Elite partier Lara P took note: "I will be better prepared next time and make sure to wear my dancing shoes!"
Many thanks to Chris, Michelle and Israel of Wayla Lounge, Loic Gourmet, Absolute Vodka, Carlsberg beer and to Vai Yu Law for the event photography. Not to mention of course, Toronto's remarkable Elite Squad for always being willing to rock out on a Tuesday night!
