The good dwellers of Dublin ventured out to The Science Gallery to dance and mingle amongst rockets, the moon, Yelp's Ping Pong Social Club and eh a robot! DJ Brian Taffe was on the decks as everyone explored the various rooms.
In the Tasting Room Stephen from Trouble Brewing poured his brew for all the curious Yelpers to try. They also sampled Galway Hooker, spoilt for beer choice! Bajram from Vom Fass delighted everyone with the yummy tipples like blood orange vodka. John from Cooley Distillery Whiskey guided folks on a whiskey flight from Kilbeggan to Tyrconnell and more in between! There also was delicious red, white and rosé wines to indulge in from Barefoot Wine.
After all that drinking some sustenance was needed in the form of tasty bites from The Science Gallery Café like honey-and-mustard-doused cocktail sausages and cream-cheese-lathered smoked salmon. Better still you could go chill out with The elbowroom. Lisa and her team led the curious Yelpers through simple yoga moves and relaxation techniques.
In The Beauty Room, Tamar and her talented team from Lunatic Fringe tamed those tasered tresses! The style of some of the hair-dos was out of this world! Dairine from Clement & Pekoe teas stimulated the crowds taste buds with the diverse range of teas in their line. Tom from Winecourse.ie was on hand to explain to folks about what he does and he kindly gave out vouchers for up coming courses. Dublin Milkman Kieran also spread the good word about what he does and some of you lucky folk know already as you woke up this morning with a delivery – bread, milk and the Sunday paper in a fetching Yelp bag!
I just want to say thank you so much to all the businesses for being part of such an important night for Yelp, thank you for trusting me! Another big thank you must go to The Science Gallery for being so involved and wonderful during the whole process.
Lastly but definitely not least – thank you! My deepest thanks for coming out and giving me your time to tell you all about Yelp as I realise for some of you this was your first experience with anything related to Yelp! I do hope that I see you again both off-line and on-line. But what about the photos?! You can check them out here! You can also read about all the gossip of the night here! And please feel free to review the actual event here!
All my best!
