Spring Bash Sponsor Spotlight: Yelp.com

Want to know all about the hottest places, events and exclusive deals in your area? Yelp is the best place to go to find the most accurate user-generated ratings on local dining, businesses, retail and events. Because actual locals create the reviews, you know the ratings are unbiased and up-to-date.

Founded in San Francisco in July 2004, Yelp offers users the option to filter searches by category, highest-rated, distance, price and more. Sort reviews by date, usefulness, coolness, funniness or number of votes. Since its founding, Yelp communities have taken root in major metros across the US, Canada, UK and Ireland - including our very own Dallas!

Use Yelp Mobile to check reviews and events on the go. Yelp even has a blog and weekly newsletter to keep you informed on what’s going on in your city. Best of all Yelp is free, and creating an account is easy. Users can write reviews, make lists of favorite businesses and chat with friends in the forums.

Bookmark Yelp and make it your favorite guide to the best of the best (and not so best)! Start by reading some of our favorite local reviews:
