This past Wednesday, Elites got their minds blown (and even got to try their own) as Yelp Backed That Glass Up at J & C Glass Studio!
Over 50 Elites found themselves face-to-face with some of the hottest stuff they've ever seen, as artists made intricate glass pieces in a matter of minutes. After a quick demonstration, guests got help blowing their very own glass pieces, ranging from paper weights and hearts to flowers. Jennifer C gushed, "It was great to have a hands-on experience with the process itself. I've never worked with molten glass before, so it was definitely worth the drive up from Akron."
All that hard work and creativity can sure make a Yelper hungry, but thanks to Cork-N-Bottle, everyone was full! Heck with the light bites—try huge trays of rigatoni, meatballs smothered in homemade marinara, crispy chicken fingers, fresh salad and at least three large, hand-tossed pizzas. Thirsts run deep with Yelp Clevelanders and thanks to "bartender" Nick, guests never went thirsty. Free beers, wines, and sodas were flowing freely.
The fun didn't stop there, as The Owens Group stopped by to promote two great new flicks coming out soon and each Yelper got a pair of tickets to see one of 'em before they even come out! Those with a sweet tooth snacked on Blow Pops (see the word play there?) and two guests won prize baskets loaded with goodies. Some who were lucky enough even left with an additional free glass piece, made by one of the artists.
And let's not forget about One Red Door Photography snapping the action, while spectators browsed the Jukebox with unlimited free plays! Elite event newbie, Luke M put it best: "I had an awesome time at my first ever Yelp event and winning the door prize was icing on the cake. It's true – Elite Yelpers ARE good times! Looking forward to future events!"
Special thanks to Nick, Chris and the entire J & C staff, Cork-N-Bottle, The Owen's Group, One Red Door Photography and, of course, all the fabulous Elites who make these events so fun!
Until the next one,
