Yelp Milwaukee Elites sure know how to kick-off 2012 in style!
In a welcome reception at Milwaukee's Capital Grille, Milwaukee's class of 2012 mixed and mingled over craft cocktails (one featuring house-infused pineapple vodka and the other featuring framboise and bubbles!), beer and wine, and amazing bites — such as lobster rolls on brioche, roasted pepper soup, truffle fries, tenderloin sliders, and jumbo shrimp.
After a greeting from Capital Grille's GM, Paul, Yelpers were introduced to the head chef, Mike. He generously gave Yelpers a tour of the kitchen, and after that? It was a cooking demo complete with a tour of Capital Grille's aging room. Paul was also kind enough to give wine cellar tours, as well. Informative and oh-so-VIP, we rounded out the night with a raffle for a complimentary meal for six valued at $150. (Congrats Melanie B!)
And as if that weren't enough, each MKE elite was treated to a parting gift complete with Capital Grille spice rubs, chocolate truffles, and a gift certificate for a complimentary lunch for two. Swanky? We sure think so. (A special thanks to Luke R for amazing photos, and to the entire staff of the Capital Grille for being so welcoming and gracious!)
Can't wait for our upcoming Yelper party… Milwaukee's first-ever Brew City Bash promises to be a shindig of epic proportions! Mark your calendars for March 9 if you're in the MKE area, and stay tuned…
Until then, SYOY!
