Although Nashville was all abuzz on who was stepping out on the CMA black carpet, the Nashville Elites brought their curiosity and appetites to the Yelp + Yazoo + You = Nashville Elite Launch Party party.
Yelpers and their guests were able to get their nosh on courtesy of the revamped Small Bites menu from Jackson's Bar & Bistro. Owner Tom Sheffer personally served the famished crowd with BBQ Chicken Sliders, phenomenal Packin' Heat Chili, and Beer Cheese Dip that was made with sharp cheddar which happened to be infused with Jackons' own Yazoo Pale Ale. Tonya L was certainly snockered from the dip alone!
Guests also enjoyed a tour of Yazoo and all parts of the brewery to learn how crowd favorites Dos Perros and Sly Rye Porter are made. After the tour, Yazoo's own Neil McCormick convinced Jason S to try the Hop Project while Robin S became even more smitten with this Music City institution. The energetic crowd was practically swimming in their pint glasses!
Our Yelp beer koozies made an appearance along with a hodge-podge of hilarious props at the photo booth, hosted by Claudia and Mark Cofer from Claudia Kay Photo. Sarah P and her crew opted to show their funny face with mustaches, specs, and frames while Peter K couldn't hold back laughs while cheesing for the camera.
Thank you so much to all of the sponsors who made this first event a reality—and, of course, thanks to all of the Elites who made this kickoff such a fun experience!
