On a warm evening in May, Yelp Elites traveled back in time
to an era complete with the Charleston, champagne towers, glitz, glamour and
plenty more! Central Bistro opened their doors and channeled the roaring
twenties for an evening that included plenty of food, drinks, entertainment and
A red carpet greeted Elites and their guests into Central
Bistro while the CrackerJack Jazz Band played lively tunes once they were inside. Upon arrival, servers greeted
Elites with trays of wine and Wrap Arizona snapped photos of all the guests,
many of whom dressed in theme for the occasion! The room was transformed into a
scene from roaring twenties complete with floral decor from The Art of Living
and the beauty of the restaurant itself.
Throughout the evening, Yelpers dined on a seafood buffet
that included plenty of crab and shrimp. A charcuterie table included several
meat and cheese options and a large pot of paella enticed guests as well. The
made-to-order Banana’s Foster lured those with a sweet tooth, while others
snuck a piece of candy or two from the candy bar. If that wasn’t enough,
servers continuously passed trays of other tasty snacks that included French onion soups, mini beef wellingtons, and mini burrata!
Elites washed down the cuisine with plenty of wine, a
champagne tower as well as an Absinthe bar and luckily Uber was there, offering
free car rides to and from the event! The night was certainly magical and
Elites were surprised by Gene Urban, the magician hired by Scottsdale Music &
Entertainment, who had a few tricks up his sleeve as well!
Elites and their guests had a roaring good time and everyone
left with a goodie bag complete with cookies, gumballs and coupons to return to
Central Bistro for a future visit! Some Yelpers were even lucky enough to win
tickets to iPic and the Ameri-CAN Craft Beer Festival!
A special thank you goes out to Central Bistro for hosting
the party, Uber for providing free car rides, Wrap Arizona for taking pictures,
CrackerJack Jazz Band for lively tunes, The Art of Living for their floral décor, and
Scottsdale Music & Entertainment for bringing the Sleight of Hand magician, Gene
Urban! Take a look at the reviews and pictures from the night!
Until next time,
