…at the Blue Owl! It was option one of Pick Your Poison last night, and the half of New York’s Elite Squad who played it cool and chose Blue Owl, were treated to an evening of delicious cocktails and munchies at this legendary East Village speakeasy.
Our master mixologist behind the bar, Charles, and his lovely serving wench Amanda offered us The Straphanger, a beguiling concoction of Plymouth Gin, champagne, strawberries, and pimms. Served cold and deliciously Yelpy red, they went down real easy – for some a little too easy, right Steve M?
We also met the beautiful Abigail S, the feisty Marlo W, and my favorite "fabulous metro gaysian" Jase E, all out for their first and definitely not last Yelp event. Also on the scene were the divine Ms. Heather H, back from a far-too-long Elite event Hiatus, Chelsea and Andrew J coming straight out of Astoria, and even a visitor from Yelp in LA-La-land, Rachael W – who looks like she felt right at home.
Much thanks to Ashley and the rest of the Blue Owl crew, and to the folks from Plymouth gin.

Until next time, kids!
Your fearless leader,
