There were so many vendors at this event, it was simply amazing! For a complete list of vendors, check here. Basically, you donated $10 & you get to eat everything & drink everything (including champagne, wine, sangria & beer) for free! I did not think that the event would be this big so I was super surprised with the turnout. Good thing I didn't eat too much for dinner since I got stuffed with all these free samples from the amazing vendors. My favorite was definitely the tri-tip, om nom nom!
Asian chicken salad, caramel marshmellow, chowder & tri-tip, mac & cheese

Enjoying ourselves with sangria
While waiting for Vinh to get his roll at Michi, Tiff yelled at me & I got to see Cindy, too! They both finally got to meet the hubsta, haha. We somehow ran into each other again while waiting to get facepainted by Poppy. I wanted something pretty & sparkly to match my top & Poppy did just that! He's so talented & super quick at it as well. He was also a pleasure to talk to during the whole painting process :)
Fabulous facepaint by Poppy
I think I had about 5 drinks by the time we left the event, but I wasn't tipsy at all since it was spread so spread out during our stay. I also think I had the most powerful beer in the world for my last drink, the taste was so strong that it like punched you!
Horrible cell phone pic, but it's cute :)
I ended up coming home with some free schwag! If you checked into the event on Yelp, you got a free piece of swag. I chose the Yelp sunnies since I needed some new sunnies, hehe. I also won a wine bottle corkscrew from one of the winery vendors. I got a sample of butter rum cotton candy as well as full bottles of Honest Tea & Neuro :)

I had a hard time getting the glitter off of me from the facepaint that I went into work still glittery, lol. People were asking what happened yesterday & then they were like "Yelp has events, what?!" Overall, I think my first Yelp event was awesome! I can't wait to get into another one. Maybe I'll make it into elite next year...? One can hope, haha! I shall now leave you with our photobooth from the night ;)
