Turning our Backyard into the #1 Restaurant in Los Angeles!! (Rated 5-Stars on Google)

  • Published on Apr 5, 2018
  • Yes Table ended up reaching 11,500 5 star reviews on google maps after the episode went live on the channel. google took it down after 3 months for not being a “real restaurant” 😂
    We thought it'd be a good idea to turn our backyard in a restaurant... and invite strangers to come eat. Our goal was to end up as the #1 rated restaurant in the city of Venice, California... and give people one of the best dining experiences they've ever had!

    The most amazing thing about all of you is that whatever you do, you do it with full dedication and full enthusiasm. Even if for the challenge you have to wake up early or if you have to do work even when you are tired you always do it with smiling faces and enjoying with each other. You guys are really really spreading so much love and happiness around the world. Huge respect for you. Even if a stranger say no to something you take it as something positive only. GREAT WORK... SO INSPIRED BY YOU

    Hey Yes Theory, I have a super cool idea for you guys! I am a young home owner in Utah. I live near some great hiking areas with some hot springs not to far away. Maybe, you could all come out this way and we can get a huge group to go up and hangout at these springs. I have room in my house for you to stay a couple of nights. We could throw a little party in my backyard with my fireplace and have dinner under my grape vine. I will copy and paste this across multiple videos! Send me a message if you say YES!
