I really don’t miss Junuary. It was a miserable spring full of full. I am happy to bid Sayonara Spring, Hapa To Yelp You Summer at Hapa Izakaya Waterfront Vancouver! Bring on the dog days of summer, beach volleying , and natural tanning!
To kick of Summer Robin had organized an uber swanky part at Hapa Izakaya located on Vancouver Downtown Waterfront. Yelp also partnered up with Uber to ride free via your very own professional private town car in 5-10 minutes through your iPhone (or smartphone). I wanted to test this out, but unfortunately for me the closest car was 20 mins away from Richmond. I had better find my own ride.
First things first, after a long day of work I must have a drink. Blue note wine and spirits brought us a great selection of pinot gris, MOMO KAWA Junmai Ginjo Craft Sake and Goku-jo Ginjo Sake. Pretty smooth.
Driftwood Brewery from Victoria, BC : Driftwood Ale, White Bark (white bark ale), and Fat Tug (IPA)
Next on to the food rotated thru the room by fearless staff against hungry yelpers and food bloggers wanting to paparazzi every dish. Nobu Watanabe and his team bought us delicious samplers of:
Halibut Ceviche – savory and sweet.
There were also polenta fries, tuna belly, cheese tofu and much more.
Glad to see some many Yelpers and their +1s have such a great time partying it the high seas with their nautical attire!
Until next time… Sayonara Elites!
And after all the fun, a LOT of us went over to Bella Gelateria for some icecream. It was only a “short” wait.
