The clouds part and the sun shines when the Yelp Elite Squad is in town. After days of rain, Calgarians brought back the rays on a sunny Sunday afternoon at DaDe Art & Design Lab for Yelp's Inglewood Block Party, the kick off of for our first ever Passport to Inglewood. Eats from local hot spots Bite Groceteria, Hose & Hound, Wilde Grainz and WilderNest made for an impressive spread as Elites and guests mixed and mingled and put their passports full of offers to good use.
Joel S relates: "How does one sum up DaDe? They have a wonderful eclectic collection of genuine Chinese antique furniture, contemporary art and furniture, and Jackson Pollack themes. There was much to arouse my need for visual pleasures. Early Cambrian blown glass fossils were the icing on the cake. Glass trilobites have to be seen."
Crostinis, cheese spreads and bread, samplings of wings and meatballs–neighbourhood food stops showed off a sampling of the culinary diversity this community can cook up. Reginald T was most impressed with the "bread sticks that looked like twigs" included in the presentation of cheeses from Bite. "Those things blew my mind…"
Prizes from local businesses wrapped up the afternoon as excited Elites and guests won gifts from Savour Fine Foods and Kitchenware, 4Cats Inglewood, Mid-Century Dweller, Kickaxe Guitars, and Riva's – The Ecostore and event moments were fabulously captured by Amy Lavonne Photography.
