What do you get when you combine three hand-crafted signature cocktails, a huge spread of impressive menu items, live music, a beautiful patio, and 60 Yelp Elites? The most epic happy hour that's ever went down, that's what. Thanks to Ruth's Chris in Clayton, St. Louis got to party in true style at one of the best parties we've seen all summer long.
After being greeted with a Lavender Fizz cocktail right when they walked in the door (Citroen vodka, violet liqueur, homegrown lavender, chai scented syrup and champagne… it's as good as it sounds), Elites made their way onto the patio where they enjoyed a ton of different menu items. Some of the favorites were the tomato and mozzarella bruschetta, lamb lollipops, kobe beef sliders, ahi tuna on cucumber rounds, Cajun steak bits on garlic crostini, and the spicy shrimp voodoo.
While enjoying the perfect weather out on the patio, we swayed back and forth to the tunes by the Rocky Mountain Oysters. Singing old favorites as well as new songs, everyone was in agreement that the band was the best we've ever had at a Yelp event. In between eating, drinking, and listening to music, Elites played an ice-breaker that helped them get to know each other and discover new spots in our city! Elite Robin C went home with a $100 Ruth's Chris gift card after winning the ice-breaker contest. I think it's safe to say she'll be back soon to try even more of the menu! Especially since many of the menu items we tried at the event are all half-price during happy hour.
As usual, it was such a blast getting the St. Louis Elites together and enjoying a fantastic restaurant in our city we love so dearly!

Special thanks to Cryrolfe Photography for capturing everything on camera, to Ruth's Chris for their undeniable hospitality, and to the St. Louis Elite Squad for always being a positive, energetic, and fun group of people to spend time with.
Until the next one!
