Yelp’s Totally Bazaar

Alright, so here’s the 4-1-1 about a über cool event happening this Saturday.

So, at this point, everyone’s heard of Yelp right?

Wait, excuse me? You haven’t?

Well, I behoove you then to click on the link above and see what the buzz is all about.

Wait, excuse me? You can’t right now?

Fine. I’ll crack open the Yelp nutshell for you…

Yelp is basically a user-driven social network. With Yelp however, users can review local businesses, services, events and share their experiences with their friends. You can also checkin to your favorite venues and earn cool offers. In addition to all that awesome stuff, Yelp hosts/sponsors tons of cool, local events where users can get to meet other users and party (I like to think of them as “Yelp-ups.”) Yelp also offers chances for users to win tickets/passes to most of the cool stuff happening around town.

Alright. So that’s the Yelp nutshell for you. Tasty huh?

Now back to the original intent of this post.

One of those cool Yelp events will be happening this Saturday, Dec. 11, from 7p-9p, at the American Sign Museum…. “Yelp’s Totally Bazaar” .

It’s a totally FREE event, with FREE food, tons of local businesses (20+) selling their wares so you have absolutely NO excuse to not get most, if not all, of your Christmas shopping done. There will be tons of other cool offerings at the Bazaar as well: entertainment by DJs, a photo booth, gift wrapping, toy donation opportunity, alcohol vendors, etc.

Since this is slated to be such a happening event, the event RSVP is full, however, make sure you contact Alex Shebar, the Yelp Cincinnati Community Manager, at for your chance to get in.

And no worries, if you don’t make it on Saturday, make sure you sign up for Yelp’s Weekly newsletter, so you can get the heads up for all of Yelp’s future events and news.

So that’s it.

Just wanted to make sure you knew about Yelp and this cool event.

My work of cracking open the Yelp nutshell for you is done here. Tasty huh?

Full disclosure: Alex, a friend, didn’t ask me…or pay me…to write this post…but he should have…the paying part that is.

I know where you live Shebar.

I know where you live.
