Yelp isn’t just a restaurant review site and the Yelp events
prove it! Yelp Elites got together at the car wash, yes the car wash, but this
isn’t your average car wash. In fact, Tom's Thumb Fresh Market has award winning BBQ, an
in-house pastry chef who whips up delectable desserts and rows of local gifts
and goodies ready to be purchased and taken home. Phoenix Elites will never
look at a car wash the same way again.
Elites and their guests were greeted at the entrance of the
car wash, where they dropped their ride off to get cleaned inside and out
during the party. With car keys handed over, they proceeded inside where they
were greeted by a local gem of a store. Those who checked in on Yelp received a
nifty miniature flashlight key chain and had a chance to guess how many cars
were in the jar for the chance to win tickets to a Taste of SanTan and the
Scottsdale Showdown. After getting checked in, the party goers started browsing
through the shop in the midst of getting greeted by surprises around every
Tom’s Thumb Fresh Market’s chef was on-hand giving
demonstrations of their award winning BBQ preparation while Elites enjoyed
plates full of BBQ treats including pulled pork sliders, pulled pork tacos,
quesadillas, mac ‘n cheese and coleslaw. In between bites, they washed down
their BBQ with local beer and wine.
For those with a sweet tooth, the in-house pastry chef was
on hand doing a cooking demonstration on how to prepare their delicious
cinnamon rolls while the Elites loaded up their plates with homemade cookies
and cupcakes. In the midst of eating, drinking and shopping the rows of local
gifts, Elites also had the chance to watch a headlight restoration demo that
explained how to fix your headlights without replacing them.
With cars clean from top to bottom and tummies full of
delicious treats, Elites left enlightened by the most unique gas station and
car wash on the block. A special thank you goes out to Tom’s Thumb Fresh Market
for hosting the party and for Wrap Arizona for capturing it all on camera. If
you haven’t done so already, be sure to look at the reviews and pictures!
Until next time, SYOY!
