500+ Honolulu yelpers gathered to celebrate Yelp's First Burstday at indie coffee shop and performance venue Fresh Cafe! Yelp was turning the big O-N-E, and the entire Yelp community was invited to join in on the yelptastic fun!
It was a succulent soiree of epic proportions as guests were treated to savory bites provided by an array of local restaurants such as Soul Cafe, Mac 24/7, Big City Diner, Licious Dishes and Remedy Urban Art Lounge. Yelpers filled the parking lot and noshed on everything from fried chicken to mac-n-cheese to monte cristo sandwiches to vegetarian burritos.
Sweet treats soon followed as party yeeps filled their bellies with an array of cupcakes, cheesecakes and delightful desserts from Otto Cake, Sunshine's Cake Creations and Tea at 1024. Next door Kaka'ako Kool provided free shave ice for yelpers hot from all their partying.
Thirsty yelpers quenched their palates at the bar with complimentary cocktails provided by Kai Vodka and beers by Blue Moon, Grolsch & Peroni. Wine freaks sniffed and sipped custom made wines from Wine The Experience.
Guests got dolled up in the Yelp Beauty Bar provided by the gals at Salon + Spa Marsha Nadalin. Yelpers were pampered with free massages, waxing, makeovers, and got their hair "did" in yelp-tacular ways! Hawt!
The Yelp Schwag bar provided just the right amount of accessories for guests to deck themselves out with buttons, tote bags, shot glasses, yelpstick and more…
And what birthday party would be complete without balloons? The dudes at Creative Air were the hit of the party as they literally twisted their way into the hearts of yelpers with ballon flowers, ghostbuster packs, octopuses and anything else someone could pull out of a hat.
