events you know just how incredible they can be. From their annual Bazaar to that time they painted the town red, Yelp's Community Director, Brittany Smith and her team are continuously creating unique, exciting events that celebrate our community and many of the wonderful businesses in Indy.
On August 20, one of Yelp's most beautiful events is taking over Monument Circle for an evening of food, drink, music and celebration. Yelp's White Night
is a fan favorite and for many reasons, including the fact that your meal for the evening includes a gorgeous accompaniment by the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra.
While there will be samples of food and drink provided by 18 local Indianapolis businesses, the idea behind the night is to dress in your finest white digs and bring your own big, delicious meal made of locally-sourced ingredients.
I've seen people go all out with five-course meals, starting with a charcuterie board from Goose the Market
, followed by roasted red pepper and goat cheese soup from Circle City Soups
, a pasta dish made with Nicole Taylor's
fettuccini, filet sliders from St. Elmo's
and finishing with cedar and whiskey ice cream from Lick Ice Cream
. But, you don't have to be so intricate, swing by Barcelona Tapas
or Bangkok Thai & Jazz
and get a quick bite to go.
The food and drink are important, but the best part is spending the evening chatting with people, making new friends, learning more about the local restaurants, breweries, wineries and whomever else might make an appearance. Like all of Yelp's events it is about community and building ours up through a convivial gathering.
The event is free, but make sure and RSVP
as soon as you can, the seats will fill up fast and once they're full there is no other way in.
