    Musings: The Elusive Black Badge

    Wait…you don’t know what I’m talking about?!? Badge, not the card! Does anyone even care about the AMEX black card anymore, anyways? I digress. I’ve been Yelping for N I N E years! Holy shit! That is a lot of time writing reviews. Anything from Khol’s to the newest restaurant to pop up in Sacramento. Yes, you read that correctly. I’ve Yelped Khol’s, among a slew of other things. At the end of each year, I nominate myself for another year of Yelp elitness. Yes, Yelp allows and encourages you to nominate yourself each year. And so I do, with no shame. To think, this all started as a bet…

    ‘eeeeef Friday

    It’s Friday. Its Fabulous. Five Fabulous “F” things going on in my life… First: Went to my first Yelp Elite event this week (Wednesday). Not only was it my first event for 2014, but it was also my first time going to an event solo. Usually I drag the bestest along or I just don’t go. But, I thought I need to be more social and active within the Yelp community, so I went to the YEE solo. To be honest, I assumed my good family friend would be there, but he ended up not being able to make it. His dad was there, so at least I actually knew…
