Online Happy Hours & Yelp Event’s

Over the weekend something cool happened, Friday co-workers that I haven’t seen in almost a month we all got together for a “Zoom” online happy hour complete with our favorite drinks and appetizer’s. Then on Saturday it was an online Yelp event that took place all over the USA to help promote local restaurants called Yelps Big Night In.

It was so much fun Friday to see my favorite coworkers on Zoom and I shared with them my Oven Fried Buffalo Thighs and a daiquiri from the KC Daiquiri Shop 

Then Saturday it was Yelp’s big event and it was wonderful to see the response right here in Kansas City for our favorite local restaurants. We decided to go with Jazz A Louisiana Kitchen and like most of the area restaurants they had a family pack special available. We ordered the family Crawfish Fettuccine Dinner, Voodoo Wings, Red Beans and Rice and their Cajun Fried Shrimp.

This was our first time trying the crawfish fettuccine and I hate I didn’t get a better picture because it was off the chain good, nice and spicy and still hot from the drive over and as always everything was mouthwatering.

This was the two best ideas since this stay at home order went into effect, it was a great way to see my work family and a way to help out our favorite local restaurants during this crazy time in our lives. So hook up with your friends and even family on Zoom and of course help support your favorite restaurant. Until next time, have an awesome week.
