Yelp du Nord

I am starting to get caught up, but man have I been behind on almost everything lately!  You know why?  Because there has been a whole lot of fun stuff happening around town .  Like this Yelp event Paul and I went to.  Thanks to Paul's Yelp review writing in Boston, we qualified as acceptable guests for Yelp du Nord, a fundraising event at the American Swedish Institute/Turnblad Mansion/Nelson Cultural Center.

We lived in this neighborhood right before we bought our house, so it was fun to go back (just for an evening!).  We sampled a ton of fabulous food and drinks from the bite-sized smorgasbord being proffered by local restaurants, breweries, wineries, ice cream companies, chocolatiers, bakeries and more!

The carnage above and the scene below gives you a sense of the crowd.  The Yelp staffers did a great job of limiting the attendees and managing the logistics.  It was a hopping place, but not sufficatingly so.  Plus, if you felt a little too crowded, you could head out to the courtyard to roast some handmade marshmallows.

The Turnblad mansion is always a spectacle to behold.  Nearly everything in the mansion is ornately adorned.

From the lighting to the fireplaces, there is so much to take in!

Bonus: the event was over at 10, so my date and I didn't even have to push it too hard to stay up for the whole thing on a Friday night!  Thanks, Yelp!
