Have you ever been to a Yelp party in, oh, say, a typical place? Like, somewhere you’d expect to have a party? Assuming you Yelp, as much of this town does, making Honolulu a red-hot Yelp site, the answer is no. And so you’d totally expect Yelp’s Holiday Hoopla this year to take place inside a luxury car showroom.
Which explains all the antlers and Santa caps at Mercedes-Benz of Honolulu last night. And in typical Yelp fashion, elites and non-elites were treated to the likes of Mac 24/7, Paul’s Poppers, Bentos Mochi and Delectables, Aloha Pops, Wow Wow Waffles and other bites and sips, including a delicious coconut vodka that booted the merriment level to ultra-uber-fab, especially since it came in big cups.
The only requirement to get in, besides yelping, was a new, unwrapped toy for the Salvation Army or a donation for the Angel Tree, which also fulfills Christmas wishes for our kupuna. The gifts came by the hundreds. And that made it all a most excellent night.
