Yelp's Elite - Night Cap at Kabin

As an Elite Yelper, I get invited to exclusive Yelp Elite events yet I've never gone to any of them. So I thought now was as good a time as any to check one out. Oh, and you are probably wondering what the heck an Elite Yelper is. According to Yelp, "The Yelp Elite Squad is our way of recognizing and rewarding yelpers [people who post reviews on Yelp] who are active evangelists and role models, both on and off the site. Elite-worthiness is based on a number of things, including well-written reviews, great tips on mobile, a fleshed-out personal profile, an active voting and complimenting record, and playing nice with others."

Once you get this designation, you must continue to earn it each year by staying active in the community. So this was my chance to meet other Elite Yelpers in our community. The event was held at the new Kabin lounge in Dupont Circle. I was immediately greeted with a shot of Three Pins Alpine Herbal Liqueur. This was so good that I've decided I need to find it to buy some of my own! The music was played by DJ Uzzle and the party was already hoppin' when I arrived.

My friends and I grabbed some food from Roti Mediterranean Grill including falafel, tomato salad, hummus, pita, and the spicy S'hug sauce and a drink made with Deep Eddy Vodka then had a seat. Everyone was so friendly. It seemed like everyone wanted to get to know one another, which was great. It was a very warm and welcoming crowd.

By the end, with all the free drinks, everyone was on the dance floor shakin' their stuff. I had no idea what to expect, but I had a great time. And I was given some awesome Yelp socks on the way out! After having written over a hundred of review for Yelp, it is nice to know they care and that they reward their Yelpers.  I hope to make it out to another event soon. Oh, and special thanks to the DC Community Manager - Kimberly - it was so great to meet you! Yelp on!
