Yelp Summerfest Brooklyn 2012

Log in and dine out at this web-influenced food festival

for The Brooklyn Paper

Turns out there are some tasty reasons to air your amateur opinions on Yelp — namely an exclusive food festival.

The foodie networking site is kicking off the season with Summerfest, an evening of eating, drinking, and dancing on Pier 41 on Thursday, June 21st, in Red Hook, bringing together the top-rated restaurants and the locals that (mostly) love them. Unfortunately, the festival is closed due to high demand, but the organizers are hoping food enthusiasts will subscribe to their website with future free events in mind.

“The heart of Yelp.com is connecting people with great area businesses,” said Yelp Brooklyn Community Director Peter DeNat. “It’s a free, fun way for us to directly introduce Brooklyn to some of the best restaurants that are right under their noses.”

Featured restaurants will include Kiwiana, Tchoup Shop, and the Red Hook Lobster Pound. Subjective diners (who have already registered) will pair their bites with complimentary cocktails from Effen Vodka, Red Stag and Skinny Girl, and groove to tunes by DJ Marvilous and City Rain as the sun sets over the waterfront.

It may be too late to RSVP for the summer festival, but DeNat is promising that avid food photographers and commentators can still reap the benefits of opining on dining experiences on the website.

“There’s always another event around the corner, and we hope to see you there!”
