It was a true break-cation celebration at this year’s big Yelper Party at the upscale Brass on Baltimore in downtown KC! Yelpers ushered in spring at Yelp’s Spring Break-cation by donning their beachy best and enjoying a night out with the help of dozens of local KC businesses. Yelp is the go-to app to find great local businesses, so it only makes sense that Yelpers would be able to discover and bookmark several new favorite spots throughout the event as they showcased what they do best.
Guests flowed into the beautiful Tudor Room, they were greeted with margaritas and other vacation cocktails from Beam Suntory. The popular Crane Brewing Co. was serving up tasty sour beers and other favorite brews.
Sushi from Blue Sushi Sake Grill, papaya salad samples from AEP Restaurant, baked goodies and coffee from Mother Earth Coffee, and fresh bites from Seasons 52 had everyone buzzing downstairs. Just across from these businesses was a popular cocktail station and candied bacon tree from ’37 Steak, as well as red-velvet key lime pie bites from the newly opened Winning Streaks inside Harrah’s Casino. Of course it wouldn’t be a mini-vacation without ice cream, and Betty Rae’s Ice Cream had many impressive offerings going around.
The upstairs entry guided the guests to hand-crafted cocktails from Tom’s Town Distilling Co., as well as healthy fresh squeezed juice from Ruby Jean’s Juicery. Yelpers got a sneak peek of the new Mudhole BBQ with tasty sliders and beans, chocolates from Bizz & Weezy, and a seemingly endless salsa bar from the new Lucky Taco. Gigantic, seasonal doughnuts from Doughnut Lounge and dozens of top-notch pizzas from Providence Pizza were waiting for Yelpers as they made their way through the party. The photo booth from Shutterbooth drew the crowds as people gathered in front of the beach backdrops for a little souvenir to take home.
Last but not least, this event helped raise money for The Yellow Brick, a local non-profit who works to empower women to build a better life.
Big thanks to all the great local businesses who took part in the party, as well as all the Yelpers who helped make it such a great little Spring Break getaway! Check out what everyone is saying here, and be sure to visit the photo album here.
