The Black, White & Yelp Bash at Revolution of course! Jim, Teresa, Lyle and a 5-star stupendous staff opened their doors just for Triangle Elites this past Sunday and treated us to tastes of decadent dishes like oysters with watermelon-cucumber gazpacho and fried eggplant with black truffle cheese. But the divine desserts may have stolen the show! Jane W pines, "I would now like to profess my love to cayenne-spiced brownies with salted buttercream," and Lauren P yelps, "I've already made plans with my friends (new and old) to head back for apps and drinks. Revolution Rocks!" Throughout the course of the evening, the dishes were magically replenished – and just as magically disappeared … in our bellies!
Yelpers matched the swanky-chic space in black and white duds with yelpy pops of red – and for many, it was all about the details…
Generous sponsors Harris Inc. and Winebow kept us quenched with a bevy of beers and a wonderful selection of Argentine wines that were in-theme – red (Tilia Malbec) and white (Tilia Torrontes) – themselves!
Some quirky fun in the form of a barnyard (those have zebras, right?) photobooth, catchy word bubbles and disposable black and white cameras ensured mixing, mingling and mild hilarity…
The best dressed of the evening were richly rewarded with prizes, and Lauren P (lucky dog!) won the raffle for a $50 Revolution gift card at her very first Elite Event!
I really can't thank our venue enough for all their support and energy on this event – or for their mouth-watering morsels! Missed it? You missed out! But catch up on the reviews right here – and check 'em out for the upcoming Abita brunch. Fun b&w photos are here, thanks to Phil G!
Until next time, SYOY!
