Milwaukee elites and guests: All aboard the Milwaukee Boat Line's Voyageur for Yelp's On A Boat v2.0: Yelp's Nauti By Nature!
Sunday July 14, 2013 was super hot & super sunny in Brew City, but that didn't stop us from having oh-so much fun sailing the high "seas" of Lake Michigan! 100 elites and guests rocked their sea legs for our second annual nauti-cool good time up the river and into the harbor of our dear greatest lake.
Kasana Gourmet provided stellar, inventive, organic bites for our noshing pleasure. They rocked empanadas, sliders, passionfruit mousse, cookies… (sigh). So insanely good! (Check 'em out, they're located in a gorgeous space in the Third Ward!)
Hometown favorite Great Lakes Distillery crafted an amazing rum punch just for Yelpers, too… it featured their Roaring Dan's rum made with pure Wisconsin maple syrup. Rounded out with pineapple, ginger, and lime (to stave off the scurvy, of course)!
DJs Tom Julio of Sabbatic and Milwaukee's Breast of Ten Bells and the Brewcity Bruisers kept all 100 elites and guests dancing and rocking on the upper deck, while monitors below in the air-conditioned cabin allowed for those guests looking to beat the heat a respite while still enjoying the shennanigans. The dance-off? Epic and fantastic, with yacht rock and 80s hip hop mash-ups making us move!
A huge thanks to the incomparable people who helped put this party together! And a big thanks to everyone who came out to celebrate MKE and summer on a hotter-than-hot Sunday afternoon.
