Dallasite: Yelp Elite Happy Hour Event at Eureka! Dallas

Yelp Dallas hosted their first restaurant event this past week. It was a happy hour at the gourmet burger joint, Eureka! in West Village Dallas. 

Eureka! is a chain that is located mainly in California, but also has a location here in Dallas. For this particular event, the menu was some of their famous starters as well as beers, wine, and their Moscow Mule.

Yelp Staff was kind as always, and it was great to see friends from Yelp and meet new people. I think the reason I love being Elite is because it forces my introverted self to go out and be social and learn new things about people I meet.

Their riblets were pretty good! 

Corn dog lollipops are a great appetizer to share with the group! The mustard sauce that came with it complimented it well.

And yes… they had brussels sprouts! They were actually really good. Kinda tricked me for a moment, made me think I was eating healthy.

Apparently these were beer fries! They were delicious and did go well with my drink.

I ordered wine the first time around and that didn’t go with any of the food, honestly. But this! This is their Moscow Mule and it went so well with everything, I wish I’d just ordered two of these!


We actually forgot to bring cash to tip the servers, so we ordered an apple crisp with ice cream, and it definitely topped off the night. It was the taste of homemade pie with ice cream. 

If you’re in the area, check out this gourmet burger joint! As you can see, they have a lot more than just burgers. I’m grateful to be a part of this event with Yelp Dallas. I was able to experience Eureka’s best! Here is their Yelp Page for reference.

Dallasite: MiniLux Highland Park Yelp Elite Event

Yelp Dallas has started their 2017 Elite events! There was actually an event before this, but I couldn’t attend due to a clash in schedules. This particular event was at Minluxe in Highland Park, Dallas, TX.


Miniluxe is a high-end nail and waxing salon, first starting in Boston, MA. In recent years they have expanded and there are five locations in the Dallas area so far. 


Miniluxe sets themselves apart from the usual market by being extremely sterile. Everything used on customers are sanitized using advanced techniques in their Clean Lab. They are also very customer service oriented and go out of their way to make each guest feel at home. 
 

At the Yelp Elite Event, they were offering color refreshes on nails and toes, facial waxes, and massages. Since I have on Nexgen nails, I couldn’t take advantage of their nail services, but I did do my first ever eyebrow wax, and now I’m not sure if I can go on without doing it again (pictures will come in later posts… muahaha). I’m considering having my Nexgen removed and having a Miniluxe manicure. The true test to see if I have cured my dermatophagia. If you’re not familiar with dermatophagia, please check out my article on it published on The Mighty.


Overall, it was a great way to kick off 2017 Yelp Dallas, and I can’t wait to visit the Miniluxe Salon in my area of Dallas.
