CMYE: Yelp Helps Appreciation Party

Remember that Vinh & I volunteered via Yelp Helps back on Valentine's Day? Well that hard work paid off as we were able to attend the Yelp Helps Appreciation Party on March 29th! What an awesome way to spend a beautiful Sunday afternoon than in Sausalito celebrating all the volunteering by Yelpers all across the Bay!

Us all chillin' on the couch

I had the pleasure of bringing my little sister Lonnie to her first Yelp event whilst my hubs brought his cousin Conic (also a first timer!). We arrived a few minutes early & found parking uphill just the next block over. Checking in was a breeze & off we went to get our nametags & Elite Yelp beach towels. We decided to veer to the left & were pleasantly surprised with the Snappea photobooth, an absolute must do at any event.

Rose or moscato?

Kettle Chips

Moon or banana? You be the judge :P

We then went to get a TRU jasmine lemonade outside the photobooth room while listening to the DJ jammin' away! Even CM Abby turned into DJ Downtown Abby for a bit!

Outside were even more drinks & food of Heretic, Snake Bite, Raw Coconut Water, True Story Sausage & Pinx Catering. Definitely kudos to Pinx for the delicious pulled pork sliders & bacon potato salad, yum! Snake Bite was my favorite libation of the afternoon.

Vinh & Lonnie also got to make a little keepsake with gogo-craft before ending the party with Phils Coffee. Hubs doing arts & crafts is a rare sight, haha! It was great running into all my Bay peeps at the party & catching up :)
