Nothing says Sunday Funday like five courses paired with five Grey Goose cocktails, and plenty of socializing! BlackFinn rolled out some of their favorite dishes and specialty drinks for DC Elites, in an evening that left Lisa R raving, "Customer service was great, food was fantastic, and the company made it all the better!"
Yelpers were greeted at the door with festive green Grey Goose shooters in Yelp shot glasses, and settled in for their tour of BlackFinn's menu! Crab cakes and bloody marys (with an Old Bay rim!) got the party started, and the foodie fun continued with a goat cheese and strawberry salad that Pam S found was "right up my alley." After her campfire ribeye steak, Trish N admits, "I had to refrain myself from licking the plate!" The shrimp and grits served in a martini glass were Ngoc L's "favorite dish," leaving her able to say only, "Mmmmm!"
Guests' glasses were full of goodies, too. Sarah A's Cherry Smash was "like you're on a beach," and Kelly G dug the dirty martini "with blue-cheese stuffed olives – amaziiiiing!" Gregg M reveals, "The meal ended on a high note with a warm chocolate brownie (paired with a Grey Goose Cherry Noir 'Cherry Coke'). It had to be good, since Carol W commented that it was better than anything she'd ever baked."
Magic was in the air as Max Major made the rounds, stunning yelpers with tableside tricks. As Charles H shares, "Every table was awestruck of the next Houdini!" Guests got to know new yelpy BFFs by filling out "Meet An Elite!" surveys that doubled as raffle entries, and winners were drawn for tickets to Wine Riot, tickets to Max Major's new show, and a $50 gift card to BlackFinn!
BlackFinn also sent all the Elites home with gift cards for their next visit, and five courses of reasons to return.
