We can’t think of a better way to mix and mingle than with the Phoenix Elite Squad and some world class bites! On Wednesday, June 28th MATCH Restaurant & Cocktails hosted a night to remember. As Elites arrived, they took a moment to admire all of the local artistic details that MATCH and the FOUND:RE Phoenix hotel feature. They checked in on Yelp for a snazzy pair of red Yelp shades, entered a raffle, and geared up for the night to come. As Elites entered our private lounge area, the MATCH team rushed to their side with a few different cocktail options. The fan favorite was the “Yelp About It,” of course . This creative concoction combined sweet strawberry liquor and champagne.
The impressive spread that MATCH put out for our group was second to none. To start, Elites indulged in a Roasted Baby Beet Salad, an outstanding Charcuterie Board, Paella, and Petite Goats Milk Panna Cotta, as well as tray passed Venison Tartare, Fat Bastard Oysters, and Tuna + Carrot Aguachile. They also had a live action station where chef was whipping up some Octopus Ala Plancha right on the spot! Just when we thought the event couldn’t get any better, team members from the FOUND:RE Phoenix hotel offered Elites the grand tour! The coolest part of the hotel is that every floor contains small details that local artists have contributed. From the art on the walls, to the unit number plates, no floor was exactly the same. The rooms themselves were urban, spacious, and overlooked the beautiful Phoenix skyline!
As the night wrapped up, Elites said their farewells and thanked the MATCH and FOUND:RE teams for such a wonderful evening. We overheard talk of Elites already planning their next visit whether it be a staycation at the FOUND:RE Phoenix, happy hour, or a special celebration dinner at the chef’s table. A HUGE thank you to both teams for such a wonderful evening. Relive this 5-star experience by reading the reviews and viewing the photos. As always, thank you to Eric Castanos for capturing the night!
