Richmond Elites and guests ended the weekend with a bang at Yelp's Sizzling Summer Soiree Elite Event at Eurasia on Sunday evening. "The intimate and friendly atmosphere, great food, fantastic mojitos, dangerous Jenga, Yelp schwag, and a talented local musician, made" Barry P "feel, well… Elite." Eurasia's classy and comfortable "spacious interior impressed" Judith L and provided the perfect setting for a summer soiree. A huge thank you to Eurasia for welcoming Yelp Elites with open arms and hosting such a sizzling event!
From achiote-rubbed pulled pork tacos with pickled onions and crème fraîche, to spring rolls with ponzu and spicy mustard, to a duo of shrimp and veggie dumplings, taste buds were delighted. Kelly C couldn't get enough of the "shredded pork tacos – amazing when topped with the sour onions and fraîche." To wash down the scrumptious samples, guests sipped pomegranate mojitos, Fat Tire brews, Cabernet and Sauvignon Blanc. Tara S "loved the vegetable spring roll and the pomegranate mojito made me oh, so happy." Thanks to the event, Casey P is "already planning a return for more of those yummy shrimp dumplings and pomegranate mojitos."
Guests showed their silly sides with photo props, and an enthralling game of giant Jenga revealed competitive spirits. To top it off, talented musician "Thomas Coleman played a great guitar," exclaims Ryan C. Toni G particularly enjoyed "his rendition of the Super Mario Bros. theme song." One lucky Elite even won a pair of tickets to Greater Richmond SCAN's six-course wine-paired dinner. And of course it wouldn't be a Yelp Elite Event without an abundance of schwag, so everyone took home shot glass favors wrapped up to look like flowers.
Lauren C sums up the event perfectly: "Wonderful company, delicious Pom mojitos, fresh Asian-themed appetizers, and the most terrifying game of Jenga I have ever seen. What more could you ask for on a rainy Sunday night?"
Until next time, SYOY,
