Not even a 95-degree day could stop PDXYelpers from having a good time as 45 of Portland’s Elite gathered to find their happy place at one of NoPo’s newest watering holes, The Lost & Found! High-powered air-conditioning, tasty cold beverages and fun bar snacks were the mode of the day, at Portland’s Where In The World Is Yelp Elite event on September 11th, 2013!
“This event was perfect for our mini heat wave,” boasts Ron T. “A cold and quaint place for us to congregate. It’s nice to catch up with our fellow pals and have a jolly time.” Jolly it was indeed, thanks to some ice-cold cocktials mixed up by the talented Lost & Found bartenders. New Deal Gin No. 1 & tonics and New Deal Ginger/Gin Mules kept the thirsty crowd on ice as we mixed it up for this Elites-only affair. For the hop heads, our friends at Widmer Brothers Brewing Company brought some of Portland’s Favorite brews including the classic Widmer Hefeweizen and their tasty new Hopside Down. There wasn’t a dry palate in the house. And speaking of palates, Niki S “sampled a few of the quesadillas, all of which were really damn good.” She reports “I was a fan of the pulled pork, but the steak was a close second for me. Go here, grab a ‘dilla, and soak in the board games, and crazy stuff on the walls that is not tacky, but fun, just like the servers and the energy here.” The Lost & Found powered up some tasty food including their signature quesadillas as well as chips and dips. Mmmmm… snackytime!
Melvin T sums it up perfectly: “The Lost & Found: A cool collection of awesome bartenders, tasty dillas, refreshing AIR CONDITIONING, spacious patio, and delicious drinks.” Huge thanks to Amai and the fantastic staff at The Lost & Found; big ups to our friends like Kevin Bland at Widmer Brothers Brewing Company; huge props to Tom and the crew at New Deal Distilling; thanks to Yelp Marketing Assistant extraordinaire Ana M; and of course yay for the Portland Elite Squad!
Until next time, SYOY!
