Whether you're a Queen or just a jester you'd be hard pressed to find and more divine and delicious event than the locavore lover's Elite Event at Sweet Afton last night! Our inaugural elite shindig in Queens, this borough sure blew everyone away. Or perhaps it was just those Spicy Cherry Margaritas, the Tito's Dirty Pickle Martinis, Sweat Tea, Red Lemonade and Miller's Gin Martinis that left yelpers with the cocktail shakes.
And when the bartenders weren't practicing their muddling skills, they were pouring smooth drafts of New York brews: Captain Lawrence Pale Ale, Kelso Nut Brown Lager, Ommegang Witte, Red Wagon IPA and Kelso Pilsner.
While the bevvies flowed like the Hudson, a delicious array of local eats were swiftly carried out of the Sweet Afton kitchen and into the hands of hungry Elites. Christina C snuggled into a booth and indulged in Irish Sausage rolls with HP sauce, hand cut fries with malt vinegar, beer battered fried McClures pickles, "grilled cheese
sandwiches made of gruyere, muenster and Irish cheddar with whole grain
mustard and some delicious thinly sliced pickles." Guests also savored the much raved about Sweet Afton Burger with "perfectly cooked, medium Pat LaFrieda beef with irish cheddar
cheese, tomato, onions, lettuce and those amazing pickles again!"
HUGE thanks to the absolutely amazing Sweet Afton staff, bartenders and owner, Ruairi for hosting the first fanastic Queens Elite Event. Thank you to all the amazing sponsors mentioned above for providing premium quality products and tastes.
