Columbus Elites took a trip down memory lane for the latest Elite party… back to those awkward school years for One For The Books at Mojoe Lounge. Melanie B just “loved the vibe – kinda nerdy, kinda sultry – you know, perfect!”
Yelpers stuffed their faces with scrumptious (and seemingly endless) foods that included a crudite platter, spicy mini meatballs, chicken tortilla soup, banh mi bites, black bean burger sliders, and delicious fried chicken that were all so tasty, they were raving about it for days! Truly "a sea of plenty," exclaims Lisa S. Meanwhile, it was the superb service from the MoJoe staff that Liz M just had to mention: "Everything was fresh, quickly replenished, and empty plates were graciously taken away.”
Not only were yelpers impressed by the service and the food, but also by the exceptional cocktails featuring spirits from new local distillery, Watershed! The Espresso Martini kept me up for hours! And lest we not forget the full-bodied brews from Rockmill Brewery that included favorites like the Saison and the Dubbel. Lisa S was “blown away” by the caliber the drinks!
To obtain drink tickets, Elites had to partake in some favorite old-school games like Scrabble and giant Jenga. Kudos to Viv L who felt like “a super stud for owning” at these nostalgic games. There were even prizes given out to yelpers who filled out Yelp Libs napkins!
Donned in bow ties, suspenders, and black rimmed glasses, Yelpers let their nerdiness shine at the awkward yearbook photo wall.
A colorful duo entertained the masses throughout the night by playing requests for their favorite tunes that got yelpers like Heather G. movin’ and groovin’: “I couldn't help but dance and sing along.”

I think it's safe to say that this Elite event was indeed, One For The Books!
See ya's soon!
