Yelp Throws A Pretty Wild Holiday(s) Party

Yelp HolidayS party

Look what we found on Flickr: Photos from Yelp’s holidays party!(Yelp, you’ll recall, is that site that where users review local businesses.)

The photos we found are from Yelp San Diego’s “HolidayS” party — thrown by Yelp for employees and users.

The party, thrown last night, is held during Christmastime, but guests are invited to dress up to celebrate any of the year’s holidays.

That’s why in these photos you will find a half-naked cupid and a lecherous leprechaun to go along with your standard frisky Santa.

Apparently, the party was a smash hit. Reviewing it for Yelp, one user wrote:

I write a bunch of stupid reviews and my reward is one of the most enjoyable parties in recent memory?  I definitely didn’t deserve this.  You spoil me too much, Danny.

How much did I love the event at West Coast Tavern?  Let me count the ways.

ONE — The food.  There was so much of it, and it was damn tasty too.  Caramel corn, sliders, wings, and itty-bitty pizzas kept coming, and they were oh so delicious.

TWO — The booze.  As the evening wore on, I lost count of the number of vodka+crans that I had.  These drinks were strong and tasty.  The fine folks serving us deserved every cent of their tips.  

THREE — The photo booth.  I’d like to say that I recall everything that happened here, but some of it is hidden behind a cloud of inebriation-induced stupor.  I do remember getting a piggy-back ride from a Mole.  Other than that…I got nothin’. ;)

FOUR — The lunch boxes.  These tin-can mementos made me feel like a kid again.  I clutched mine for dear life.  They’ll be more valuable than Beanie Babies someday.

FIVE — The camaraderie (of course).  This is what Yelp events are really about.  Seeing familiar faces and getting to know some new ones is always a blast.  This time around, I even managed to exchange digits with a few of you sexy beasts.  Just wait ’til I start bombarding you with inane text messages at all hours of the day and night.  

Apparently I loved the event in exactly five ways.  What a coincidence — that’s precisely the number of stars that I was going to give.  Whodathunkit?
