Yelp Elites had a great time at the new CM Announcement Event last Wednesday at 1910 Geneva! Over 40 Elites attended for a night of fun craft cocktails and featured menu items. The 1910 Bar has a wide variety of seating for a super social atmosphere. A favorite was the swings that many Yelp Elites got to enjoy right at the bar. One of the owners, Lindsey had all ears open to her when spoke about the history of 1910 and shared some fun facts about the building. The graffiti art along the walls symbolize some of 1910’s story and even double as a cool backdrop for photos!
Some highlights on the exclusive Yelp Elite Menu included an Elitetini, Poke Nachos, 1910 Old Fashioned and every type of taco imaginable! One of their awesome bartenders, Jerry, demonstrated their Old Fashioned and started by taking a torch to a wooden plank. He then used the Old Fashioned glass to put out the flame and smoke the glass. He added all of the ingredients to a glass full of ice, stirred, and strained over a freshly made ice sphere. He topped it all off with a freshly burnt orange peel. What’s that? You wish you could have seen this? You’re in luck! Check out the slow-mo video of Jerry in action on our Yelp Chicago Burbs Instagram or Facebook. We got you.
Yelp Elites got to play around in the super fun Alfresco Photo selfie station with their new CM! The selfie station is exactly how it sounds. The open air concept allowed for a bunch of Elites to get a little silly and strike some fun poses with the gif feature. The customizable template connecting Alfresco Photo, 1910, and Yelp was enjoyed by all. The easy share feature on the kiosk allowed for extremely convenient sharing on social or to a phone. The 1910 history collage made the perfect backdrop for this photo station!
To top off the night, Graham’s Chocolates home-made some adorable, custom Yelp peanut butter cups. The owners, Sergio & Lindsey along with the entire 1910 team, were energetic, welcoming and so generous the entire night. They even provided an awesome promotional offer for each Elite to come back and experience 1910 again.
If you’re needing a taste of a trendy bar in the city but don’t want to head all the way out there, you can definitely get your fix at 1910 and leave with your taste buds extremely satisfied!
