It was a week of drinking deals for the yelpers in LA as part of the Yelp Drinks promotion. And what better way to end this week than with an event at one of Culver City's most loved drinking institutions: Backstage Bar & Grill. 150 LA West Elites came out to sing their hearts out at this karaoke fest!
Full open bar helped the notes flow a bit smoother and their famous mac and cheese had everyone smiling. As Michael F shares: "I don't think I have ever been to a Yelp event where there was a completely free open bar, which is about as good as it gets!"
Everything from Adele to The Little Mermaid were featured and the singing was so popular that there ended up being a waitlist. Jenn G shows how singing brings people together: "Plenty of Yelpers sang karaoke songs of various artists: Nsync to Paramore to Adele. Antho L. asked me if I could be Christina Aguilera for a duet of "Moves Like a Jagger" and I went up more for moral support than singing lol. It was so good to finally meet Yelpers Antho L., Tony Y. Jr. Y and Julia K!"
Every Elite received their very own California beer glass as a memento from the first ever Yelp Drinks in Los Angeles.
Just when the yelpers were getting comfortable, we surpsied them with some delicious cakes from Pastries by Edie. The three yelp cakes came in strawberry shortcake, red velvet and chocolate mousse!
Until next time, SYOY!
