Southern belles and Kentucky Derby contenders would be tickled pink with Vancouver’s Elite Party at The Refinery Monday night.
In Renee C’s words, “The bottles lined the room up high, watching Elites mingle, smile, laugh, and drink. They had a birds-eye view of the fun and friendly people, the Maker’s Mark bourbon that flowed freely into peach-preserve drinks made lovingly by Ron Oliver and Executive Chef Michael Carter's carefully chosen and prepared canapés. One of the mixologists at the Refinery, and the maker of the peach preserves, Lauren Mote, worked the room enthusiastically, clearly passionate about her art!”
Of course, a few yelpers like Barry M and Rachael T had some lucky horseshoes of their own, winning tickets to the Hopscotch Scotch, Whiskey and Beer Festival, Brief Encounters: the Remix and to LTJ Bukem.
And, of course, a big ‘ol peachy southern kiss goes to Lauren Mote and the team at The Refinery for not only hosting us but introducing us to their homemade preserves and bitters, feeding us their locally sourced flatbreads and delectably topped crostinis and showing us how to live a fabulously refined life!
Until Vancouver's next barrel of fun–SYOY!
