Us enjoying ourselves at Vinyl Room
Sonya was so nice to drive us all the way up to Burlingame for this event. We arrived about 20 minutes early so we took a little stroll in downtown Burlingame before spotting our event location. I loved that they had cushioned seats outside their establishment to sit on while we waited for the party to start :P
We got checked in pretty quick & had a Yelp wristband slapped on us to verify that we were all of legal drinking age, haha. About 2 minutes after the wristband being placed, the doors of Vinyl Room opened for all the Yelp Elites & their +1s to party! We all donated $10 to the Peninsula Humane Society as well for a great cause :)
The first thing I noticed were the yummy-looking macarons by Macarons A Go Go! They are so cute with the little pawprints (for the Peninsula Humane Society). I only got to try the raspberry-flavored one, which was a little on the sweet side, but that's okay since it was quite cute.

After grabbing a macaron, we headed to the bar where we examined & chose our drinks. Our bartender for the night was Eric & he took good care of us the whole night, haha. He made sure to come check our end of the bar frequently & our glasses were never empty for long. What service! One time he told me (as I was patiently waiting my turn to order): Just scream if you want anything & I'll get it for you! :P Quite the selection of specialty drinks put on by the sponsor Old World Spirits & Vinyl Room.
We also received free Yelp shot glasses for checking into the event! Another Yelp swag item to add to my growing collection :)
Yelp shot glasses, yo!
Summerlin & hibiscus margarita
Other foodie sponsors included Ace of Sandwiches that provided 5 different sandwiches! I loved the two sandwiches I tried, so yummy!

Sonya said I looked preggo in this photo, lol
I have to admit that although all food items are sample sized, after 2-3 trips, you have one full & happy belly. Z Sausage provided brownie, cake, sausage & meatball bites, yum! ZICO coconut water helped us rehydrate after all our drinks :P

We left shortly after finishing my third drink & we grabbed some ZICO to go for rehydration purposes. For my whole review on the event, check here. Thanks Abby, Vinyl Room & the rest of the sponsors for an awesome Wednesday night out :)
Just because they were just uploaded, two photos taken by a photographer from the evening. You can see more photos here :)
