Community Manager — Rebecca Whyte - Follow Us On Social Media Instagram & Twitter: @ YelpBatonRouge Facebook: Yelp Baton Rouge Hot & New Businesses Baton Rouge is booming with new businesses. Make sure to check the "Hot & New" section on Yelp and pay these new businesses a visit! Don't see a new business on Yelp? You can add that new business on the Yelp. com site via desktop or through the mobile app. We are always ecstatic to hear from you and what your experience was with any business. So start a profile on Yelp, go to that business and share a review and/or photos. These additions to our site are so important for the growth of businesses in the community! Yelp Check-In Offers and Deals Want to access special deals or a little something extra just by checking-in or searching Yelp? There are handfuls of businesses that are adding check-in offers and deals on the site around Baton Rouge and other cities you may travel to. They are there for you to use and even share with your social network! You can search for "Yelp Deals" through the desktop site or the mobile app. Check-in offers can only be accessed through Yelp mobile app, so make sure you are using the filter to search for these around Baton Rouge or any areas you plan to visit. Official Yelp Events At A Local Business Near You Usually every month, we host official Yelp events at local businesses. If you are on Yelp, find our official events on, follow us on Instagram & Twitter @YelpBatonRouge and/or Facebook: Yelp Baton Rouge. In April, we hosted a Yelp "Elite-Only" event at the new Eye Spy Escape Rooms on Perkins Road (close to Bluebonnet). Attendees were assigned into groups, either the World War III-themed or casino-themed room, and then competed to see who finished each room the fastest. It was definitely a thrilling experience that required team-building efforts and sportsmanship. Eye Spy Escape Rooms makes a great place for birthday parties, corporate events, bachelor/bachelorette parties and more! May was National Burger Month, so we celebrated with burgers and brews at The Grind, connected to Quarters. Over 150 craft burger sliders were served and paired with a variety of beers. If you haven't yet been to The Grind and tried their food, don't miss out! They have some tasty appetizers, entrees with a huge bar and restaurant space for your next get together. After some yummy eats, head over to Quarters for some gaming fun! Yelp Fit Club 2017: At GymFit Baton Rouge The 2nd Annual Yelp Fit Club: Ultimate Health & Fitness Party was at the newest gym in town this year— GymFit—that specializes in ninja warrior, circus arts and family fitness. An invitation went public for the whole community to come enjoy this electrifying and energetic event! Attendees were given the opportunity to participate in various 15-minute workout segments taught by the area's top fitness instructors, try offerings from Gymfit (ninja warrior course, parkour, aerial, acro and more), interact with wellness therapy professionals, with activities for the kiddos and the chance to enter prize raffles. The event was designed for the whole family! 100% of all funds raised went to support the Miracle League at Cypress Mounds— "a non-profit organization that makes it possible for children with mental and physical disabilities to achieve the same dream as their healthy peers: to play baseball as part of a team in an organized league." Yelp is always thrilled to get the chance to support local businesses and organizations, so please continue to watch for our official events! Yelp Elite Spotlight We love our Yelp Elite Squad here in Baton Rouge and surrounding areas (all the way to Lafayette & Hammond)! There are many fabulous Elites who are always excited to share their thoughts and experiences on Yelp so they can help others find great local businesses. So, we want to show-off some of those Yelp Elites in each article we write in City Social Magazine. They are local and their reviews and pictures are of various businesses around town and beyond! See you on Yelp!
