Throughout the month of May, Yelp community managers in select cities around the globe are showcasing some of the best local businesses in a particular neighborhood. Yelp wants to help you get to know everything in your city - from local restaurants, bars and boutiques to dry cleaners, shoe cobblers and barbers - and Yelp Passport encourages locals to get out and explore!
Just as every single one of our Yelp communities is unique, so too are the Yelp Passport events in each city. Below is just a sampling of the fun (often free / discounted) events that our Community Managers are hosting in order to get locals out to discover another part of their amazing city:
Joi B. has a whole slew of events planned for Yelp New Orleans’ Passport to Freret Street, including a massive kick-off party, fashion show and bar crawl, but she’s especially excited for the Cook Dat! demo, where gourmet hot dog gurus from Dat Dog will be showing New Orleaners how to make their own tasty creations.
As part of Yelp Providence's Passport to Fox Point, Hilary H. has organized a free flower arranging class at Studio 539 Flowers! Yelpers will nibble on cupcakes and sip champagne while learning some floral tips from the expert owner of this much-loved boutique flower shop.
Pound for a pound, Yelp London’s Passport to Brixton (organized by Josephine B.) is the hyper-local event of the year. British Pounds (£) can be swapped out for Brixton Pounds (B£) and Londoners will be encouraged to shop locally at Brixton Village Market.
Next up, we have Rachel F. who is gearing up for Yelp Louisville’s Passport Back to the 80's Ballin' Brunch, an 80's themed play date brunch complete with a ping pong tournament, loud clothing and bad... we mean "good" music.
And finally, Jeffrey S. didn’t want his yelpers’ furry friends to miss out on Yelp Salt Lake City’s Passport to 9th & 9th, so he’s hosting a doggy night at Posh Paws. A professional trainer will give a quick demo and a doggy baker will be there with treats for the pups. The humans will have plenty of sips on the front porch where yelpers can meet and mingle.
