Did someone say spring and fling in the same sentence? Yes. Yes, they did.
And despite the overused phrasing Yelp Elites came out in droves to Tribeca Cinemas to celebrate the season that has us grinning from ear to ear. Roosevelt Dime kicked things off with some tunes from their album, dedicated to all things American music. Whether they were hollering acoustic jug band tunes and laying down
classic Motown soul, Elites certainly enjoyed the live band treat!
To soothe those empty stomachs some top-rated local eateries were on hand with tasty treats. Poco's mushroom truffle croquettes, jalepeño chorizo mac & cheese and house cured tequila salmon carpaccio served on a garlic toast with homemade hummus finished with cilantro pesto had Kendra C and Ki G going back for more. Meanwhile, Meze Grill got the masses going with spicy hummus, baba ganoush, homemade pita chips and cinnamon & vanilla rice pudding for dessert. From the masters at Murray's Cheese Shop, yelpers were invited to sample an array of asiago, manchego and piave cheese with a (dried) cherry on top!
A springtime evening isn't complete without some Heartland Brewery beer: Cornhusker Wheat and Sumatra Porter to be precise. Dana F fantasizes, "espresso beer = a jolt and a buzz at once. Do you think I can drink this at work?" Just don't tell anyone Dana. At the bar, Apple and Pear Original Sin Cider took the edge of the moody Mondays.
Thanks to all the gorgeous NYC Elites who sprung into spring with us. Check out the reviews and photos from Mackler Studios while you procrastinate at work. And be sure to enjoy the record high temps in the city this week!
