Event Recap: Yelp Holiday Hangover

Written by Cameron Clark on January 28, 2015

 

Yelp took to the water’s again for the 2015 Yelp Holiday Hangover aboard the 1,200-passenger Hornblower Infinity from Pier 40 in the West Village on Sunday, January 25, 2015.

With 30+ local food, beverage and entertainment vendors, this 21+ only event brought together nearly 700 members of New York’s Yelp community for a one-of-a-kind evening cruise to celebrate the start of what promises to be another great year.

To make this year’s annual Yelp event especially fantastic, Hornblower and Yelp teamed up to simultaneously host the Holiday Hangover aboard the 750-passenger California Hornblower in San Francisco. Same day. Same event. Different yacht. Different city. Talk about a national takeover!

As New York-based Yelper Tameeka put it: “Last year’s event was amazing, but this years event was off the chain! It was 10 times better. I headed to this event alone (we weren’t allowed to bring +1s) and ended up meeting 2 ladies I never met a day in my life and had a BLAST! This made my night because I thought I was going to be wandering the boat alone.” (Read more reviews of the event here.)

Spread out over Infinity‘s three interior decks, Yelpers could be seen jamming out to silent disco beats provided by Silent Storm, and enjoying savory dishes by local food vendors Williamsburg Pizza, City Cakes and more!

Yelper Alex put it best: “Holy ship. This was definitely the best Yelp event I have ever been to and my first in NYC.  It combined all of my favorite things:

1. Boats
2. Foods
3. Unicorns
4. Adult beverages
5. Dance parties
6. A reason to wear a bowtie
7. A self-induced diabetic coma from all the sweets
8. Massages
9. The sexiness of a whole slew of yelpers in one place”
