Jeremy Stoppelman must be beaming.

Mayor Gavin Newsom has declared December 3, 2008, tomorrow, Yelp Day in San Francisco. [cue church bells, angels choir]

Sure, you can turn your nose up at the Yelp ilk - or whine about their alleged mafia-like tactics - but Yelp really has changed this city in many ways, giving a voice to the average pretentious foodie while keeping business owners on their toes. So: congratulations, Yelp.

We will not hold our breath for a proclamation of SFist Day. [cue sad face]

Update: It never happened. Alas. Sorry, Yelpers.
