Following our outing last week to the Amherst Dipson to see The Great Gatsby, Yelp Elites showed up en masse at Savoy, a newly opened sleek gorgeous 20s Style Prohibition Tavern for a Soirée that went down in the record books as "one of the best Yelp events" that Kristin D "has been to." From the beautiful jazzy sounds of the Jon Lehning Duo, the improvisational dancing of Nancy Hughes and Scott Slocum, endless cocktails and bites; this was one unforgettable Sunday night.
Jamie T "loved the atmosphere," which gave her an excuse to "dress in theme with her most beloved era," and was blown away with their baquettes, her favorites being the "roasted turkey with Brie, Arugula with Raspberry Onion Jam" and "the
smoked chicken with Caramelized Onions and Cremini Mushrooms with Goat
Cheese and Fresh Sage." Lindsay A couldn't get enough of their famous deviled eggs, proudly announcing her favorite flavor as the "Buffalo-style (blue cheese and hot sauce)."
The cocktails were unforgettable. Adam Nugent (who got a few special shout outs in the reviews) put on a spectacular show of his craft and the carefully thought out drinks at Savoy. The Harrington with 42 Below Vodka, Cointreau Orange Liqueur, Chartreuse, and Caramelized Orange Oil required setting an orange peel on fire to complete. Bravo! Big shout out to Empire North for being a professional supplier of all these great brands.
These photo's above were graciously taken by Paul Fanara of Living in the Buff studio. Great big thanks to all the wonderful staff at Savoy for hosting us, the wonderful dancing of Nancy Hughes and Scott Slocum as well as the Jon Lenhning Duo for providing the jazzy sounds for the event.
Until next time, farewell Elites!
