It was Mr. Green in the Outdoor Chapel with the Lead Pipe! If you're thinking, "Outdoor Chapel? That wasn't in the game," then you weren't at the Yelp Las Vegas Elite event this past Tuesday where yelpers gathered to solve the murder of groom-to-be Mr. Boddy. The scene of the crime: The Aritsan Hotel Boutique, a chic, mysterious spot in the heart of Vegas. As soon as yelpers arrived they knew they had stumbled across the scene of a crime.
Yelpers were greeted with a Corzo tequila tasting and sipped Corzo cocktails, including My Boddy's Buddy with ruby red grapefruit juice, agave nectar and champagne, Professor Plum's Punch with pineapple juice and lime, and Mr. Green Machine with Bacardi Grand Melon, green tea, and fresh lemon juice.
The cast of suspects snacked on risotto fritters, meatballs, and fried baby artichokes crafted by The Artisan's in-house restaurant Mood.

Each team had to complete a series of 6 challenges, and with each successful challenge, they earned a new set of Clue cards to eliminate suspects, weapons and rooms, until finally…
