This past Monday, around 75 Elites and guests dressed from head to toe in their most daper black and white attire, and joined together for Yelp Noir at District!
This brand new restaurant pulled out all the stops to introduce themselves to CLE Yelpers, starting with passed hors d'oeuvres from their fresh new menu. Handheld bites included vegetable flat-breads, tomato and mozzarella bites, tempura-battered chocolate ganache and more! District also helped guests wash it all down with two complimentary cocktails to fit the black and white theme, the black & white Russian and their take on a white cosmopolitan.
While Yelpers dined and drank, their were serenaded by the harpist, Kristy Kline, and the Magish (aka magician), Jim Sislo, tricked and dazzled the restaurant with his unique illusions and sense of humor. There were plenty of disposable, black and white film cameras on each table for the inevitable selfies and each guest got free passes to see the screening of White House Down, thanks to The Owens Group. And those who weren't up for snapping themselves skipped over to the Yelp Noir photo booth, thanks to photographer Fernando Lopez. Check the pictures out HERE!
The freebies didn't end there! Cleveland World Beer Festival raffled off a pair of tickets to one lucky Yelper and if you showed your Yelp check-in to the event you snagged two passes to Yoga Rocks The Park! The two best dressed guests of the evening went home with prize baskets filled to the brim with random, pampering goodies.

All the event pictures live HERE and the disposable black & white cameras are shipped out for developing—as soon as I get the files back, they'll be shared.
Thanks to Seth, Sandro and the entire District staff for taking such wonderful care of us, Fernando Lopez for taking some amazing shots, The Owens Group, Cleveland World Beer Festival, Yoga Rocks The Park and last, but not least, all you amazing Elites!
Until the next one,
