Columbus Elites brought their appetites – and a little friendly competition – to the Yelp Elite Sushi Smackdown @ Fusian last week.
(props to our video producer, Benji Robinson!)
Fusian - a fresh-casual sushi restaurant serving a unique experience that allows you to create your own roll – features local, fresh, and natural ingredients.
Taking it up a notch, Elites were placed on teams that competed to be crowned creators of the best-tasting sushi roll, as determined by our panel of local "celebrity" judges. Rounding out this panel were radio DJ, Krista Kae, from CD102.5FM, brewmaster of North High Brewing, Charlie Davis, and surprise judge, Matt R, an Elite who won this opportunity based on our on-site raffle! The winning team took home giftcards from North High Brewing & water bottles from Fusian.
Filling the night with delicious, local beer were partners (and Fusian near-neighbors) North High Brewing - a brew-on-premise establishment that offers DIY brewing and bottling, as well as a full service bar.
Catherine J explains,
This event had it all– great (and plentiful!) food, drink, and activities designed to help us mingle. Oh my gosh, and the BUSINESS OWNERS. Seeing the guys from Fusian and North High Brewing come out and have fun with us was pretty much priceless. These are amazing people with amazing visions and Columbus is amazing for having them. Seriously, the energy these guys gave (and the hardworking Fusian line team) took the event from "great!" to "amazing!"
