Yelp Festival of Firsts – January 28th to February 28th, 2014

Yelp Festival of Firsts

You’d have to be living on Mars not to have heard about Yelp. It’s a website and app who’s purpose is to

connect people with great local businesses’ (www.yelp.ie)

It was founded in 2004 and receives millions of visitors and reviewers, called Yelpers every month. Even with this knowledge it has taken me until today to actually sign up to Yelp with the view of checking in and reviewing different places. You see I got stuck into Foursquare and that’s where I’ve been checking in and getting /leaving tips for others. I’m not saying that I’m going to disown Foursquare, my 800+ friends and 700+ check-ins but Yelp does appear to be much more community based in Ireland and particularly Dublin. The reviews are substantial and with events like Festival of Firsts … I’m seeing the advantages. 

So why have I decided to get involved now? Well, Emily, a reader of The Life of Stuff and also the Yelp Community Manager in Dublin, got in touch the other day to let me know about Festival of Firsts and as Sharing is Caring … it only seems right to share what I know with you.

From 28th Jan to 28th Feb, we will have lots of free to nearly free events happening around the city – from raw food to Liffey kayaking, belly dancing, star gazing, amp making and Hellfire walking, if there’s something you haven’t tried in Dublin, now’s the time! (www.yelp.ie)

Sounds exciting doesn’t it? … but sure your first time should be. All participants need to do is RSVP on the relevant event page, and they’re in! So just go to Yelp.ie/events for more details but before you head off, here is a list of the events so far … but keep an eye on it as it is sure to grow as more businesses get onboard …
