This week Las Vegas Elites teamed up at MGM Grand for the Yelpmazing Race. If the Amazing Race is a social game of tasks, flights and pitstops, then this journey was a social game of tasks, food, and food. Nine teams of 7-8 ate their way through five challenges at a selection of MGM’s fine and casual dining establishments. The tasks were as follows:
Fiamma: Finish 6 servings of a selection of their pastas… No hands allowed!
Seablue: Create a signature salad, identify 6 wine varietals, and complete an iPad based challenge.
Diego: Prepare their tableside guacamole, consume it all, and salsa dance!
'wichcraft: With the guidance of a blindfolded team member, reconstruct one of their sandwiches while the rest of the team completes a word search.
MGM Grand Buffet: Clean 40 tasting plates of the buffet’s sweet and savory selections.
For the grand finale, everyone raced back to Rouge and assembled a puzzle of pieces they had collected along the way. Then they sipped on Skyy Vodka and nibbled on custom Yelp cookies and cupcakes. Ahh… the taste of sweet victory.
Speaking of which, the winning team made off like bandits with a dining certificate for two to their choice of Fiamma, Seablue or Diego, 2 tickets to Ka or Crazy Horse, and a MGM cookbook. Everyone received a certificate of completion!
Suki L puts it best: “Today was one the best times of my life participating in this wonderful Yelp Elite event called Yelpmazing Race at MGM Grand.”Easy to see why thanks to the beautiful shots captured by Juma Photo.
Phew! Until next time, SYOY!
