On Wednesday, June 27 Chicago Yelp Elite Lushes
gathered for a “sophisticated” night of wine tasting and appetizers at Lush
Wine and Spirits. The Lush team
greeted us with sparkling wine at the door and made sure our glasses were full
with a taste of some pretty special wine throughout the night.
And there was plenty of delicious food to keep us lushes
happy! Dinner by
Design Maxwell Street, now open for 2 weeks, served tasty appetizers and
addicting brownies. Due to an unfortunate car accident we were without cheese
for the first half hour of the party, but then the dedicated owner of White Linen Catering
showed up with cheese platters on his way to the hospital because he didn’t want to
leave us cheeseless. We appreciate Gary’s dedication and hope he feels better soon!
E, and adorable yelpy couple Dave S
W (aaawwww). Although Chris H
H are no strangers to the world of Yelp they made it to their first Yelp
event! And we also showed LA transplant Liz K
that the Chicago Yelp Community knows how to have some fun!
Most yelpers left with a buzz & a bottle (or perhaps 2)
of wine, but Mindy S,
B, and Audrey T
were especially lucky when they won gift certificates to Lush and Dinner by
Design in the raffle.
A special thanks to the staff at Lush for introducing us to
some fine wines, Dinner by Design for making sure we were well fed, and White
Linen Catering for making sure we had cheese under difficult circumstances.
