    New this year was the VIP Lounge sponsored by Yelp! VIP Guests were given early access to the event, special gift bags, private tastings and exclusive prize drawings. The Secrets of Louisville Chefs crew including Tim Laird was set up inside the lounge to share their foodie secrets and to interview local foodies. Emily Hagedorn, Yelp! Community Manager, said it's a great place to relax and digest your food. The VIP area was beautifully decorated with furniture by Eyedia.
