Yelp Elites set sail on a sensational seafood and sunset voyage courtesy of one of the Harbor's most-known neighborhood gems: The Rusty Scupper. After a long day of work, "Yelp's Seafood and Sunset Happy Hour Elite Event" soothed more than 70 elites with third-floor panoramic views.
"It was also my first time at the Rusty Scupper," says life-long Baltimorean, Robby B. "The restaurant was great and I think you'd be hard pressed to find a better view of the harbor."
The view may have caught their eyes, but the food and drink were the stars of the show and "went perfectly with the setting overlooking the water," according to Pascal P.
"To begin, the food selection was AMAZING – lump crab cakes made on the spot??! Jumbo shrimp-the-size-of-your-head cocktail! Crap Dip! Oysters!" exclaims new Elite Kris L.
"The servers walked around with teriyaki beef skewers, blackend tuna (which I loved) and tomato/mozzerella," Jordan K adds. An array of specialty wines especially selected by the staff for elites were poured both at the bar and by the window for Elites to sip and savor as well.
And don't forget dessert: Yelp cake! Joseph K couldn't believe how "perfectly moist" it was, with "the frosting that wasn't grainy nor too sweet, and a jelly middle layer that was an awesome addition …a slight acidity/fruitiness to balance out the sweetness overall."
"But you know the best part: The People," says super-friendly Devonna B. "All of the Rusty Scupper staff were so delightful. Ed, the manager was extremely personable, as was the assistant manager. The waiters and waitresses were AWESOME. I really can't shout out any individual, otherwise I'd have to list the enter wait staff."
Elites, themselves, should get a hand as well with the excellent mixing and mingling and meeting of all the new Elites. As seasoned-Elite Kit H put it: "I always enjoy being among Yelp Baltimore's merry band of castaways." I have to say, I second that. Love that the band's getting bigger and greater everyday!
Way to go, Yelp Baltimore!
Until our next adventure…
