It's hard to
imagine that 6 1/2 years ago, Yelp made its first debut in Chicago. Time
sure flies when you're having Yelpy fun! On Monday night, over 200
guests rocked red attire, and made it out to Red Door to celebrate at Yelp's Half Burst-Day Party.
Partygoers were set up on the patio – truly one of the city's
hidden gems with long, wooden, communal tables – and served a variety of
beers (PBR, Blanche de Bruxelles, Modus Hoperandi) and signature
cocktails. The Red Door Martini (Grey Goose Cherry Noir, Mint, Lemon,
Orchid) and Viking Blood (Akvavit, Right Gin, Chamomile, Red Currents)
were the perfect celebratory drinks!
With a menu that serves
up globally-inspired pub fare, Red Door showcased many of their dishes.
Yelpers noshed on Smoked Trout Deviled Eggs, Lamb Neck Sloppy Joes,
Bacon Wrapped Artichokes Stuffed with Chicken Liver, Bulgogi Spare Ribs,
PeekyToe Crab Salad with Grilled Watermelon, Elote with Queso Cotija
and Lime Mayo, Oysters with a House Mignonette, and more! Is your mouth
This party may go down in history as the most fun and delicious half Burst-Day party of all time. Luckily for us, photographer An Phan was on hand to snap up all the shots, so we can relive the memories next year! Peep the awesome pics for yourself here.
