Last week, Detroit Elites braved the unpredictable Michigan weather for our 2nd annual family friendly pleY date at Midway Sports and Entertainment. For three hours folks had unlimited access to all the fun Midway has to offer—go karts, batting cages, eurobungee, water wars, mini golf, a driving range, bumper cars, rock climbing walls, and more!
Unfortunately, an hour into the evening the weather turned and the rain came down in buzz killing buckets. Undeterrred, our easy going guests parked under the tents and enjoyed pizza from Pizza Kitchen, plenty of pop and water for hydration, sno-cones for a sweet treat, popcorn from Detroit Popcorn Company for snacking, and balloon animals from Curlie's Face Art for a little extra fun. After, some braved the rains and grabbed buckets of balls to get a few swings at the driving range, others took refuge under the covered bumper cars, and some popped open decks of Yelp playing cards for some impromptu card games under the tents. What rain??
A boatload of thanks goes out to Jason and the staff at Midway for creating the most welcoming and friendly environment for our yelpers and their families. Thanks also go out to Nicole W and Erin C for being most excellent helpers for the evening, Doug Coombe Photography for the lovely photos, Cindy of Curlie's Face Art for the artfully crafted balloon animals, and all our elites and their families for being such good sports and braving the weather with us!
Until our next elite adventure!
