To celebrate Yelp’s 10th anniversary, Yelp Sydney partnered with the Pyrmont Bridge Hotel for a swashbuckling party on 15 July 2014. The theme was anything maritime with Snog The Frog Costumes & Fancy Dressproviding discounts on costume hire. Guests were treated to delicious bites, brilliant beverages and marvelous entertainment.
The bar served Wirra Wirra Wines, Little Creatures Brewing beers,Frangelico and Wild Turkey Spiced. Food included hot dogs and chips from the Snag Stand, authentic brazilian tastes from Ovo Cafe, pies from the Pie Society, and South African beef jerky from Biltong2Go.com.au, Desserts consisted of Twisted Frozen Yoghurt, Byron Bay Cookies and cake pops from the Valhalla Dessert Bar . Entertainment was provided by Sydney DJ Hire and the burlesque dancer Miss Kelly Ann Doll. Pix2Flix were there to capture those party moments in a flipbook. And for anyone where it all got too much, 3 Minute Angels where there to provide a massage and Revivol Hangover Relief tablets were available for hang over relief.
The star of the event was MasterChef season 4 contestant Kevin Perry who, despite coming in the top 24, still realised his food dream and opened up a business called Dinner’s Ready Australia. Dinner’s Ready supplies its customers with the groceries and recipes (that can be prepared in half an hour). The customer cooks the meal themselves. Nothing is pre-cooked because the philosophy of the business is that fresh is best.
Everyone who checked in on the Yelp app got a free Yelp aluminium drink bottle or wharfie gloves.
The evening was an opportunity for Yelp to throw the spotlight on some wonderful local businesses and brands. — at Pyrmont Bridge Hotel
