Members of the Yelp OKC Elite Squad were treated to an evening of local luxury when they set sail on Oklahoma River Cruises! What better way to enjoy a summer evening than a sunset cruise with OKC's best Yelpers?
As each Elite and guest checked in, everyone got lei-d! Elites also received Yelp sunglasses so they could watch the sunset in style. Not only did Elites get a killer view of the community from a different perspective while rolling on the river, they also got a crash course in the best local fare the city has to offer.
Once on board, guests could grab a cold cup of COOP Ale Works beer. The OKC brewery served up their Native Amber and Horny Toad to thirsty Elites from prow to stern! A glass of Spanish red or white could also be had for the wine drinkers aboard the ship. A funny safety speech from Captain Mark kicked off the evening and set the tone for a fun night on the water.
When everyone had their sea legs about them, Norman's farm-to-fork restaurant was on hand to serve up fine foodstuffs! LOCAL treated Elites to a wide array of yummy bites, all made from locally sourced ingredients. The menu included bruschetta, house made goat cheese and beets on crostini, lamb belly on toast points and watermelon with a balsamic reduction. Talk about a gourmet galley! Even the flowers were grown just a few miles from the Oklahoma River.
Add a yacht rock playlist, lots of cozy conversations between Elites – many of whom were meeting for the first time – and the sunset against the Oklahoma City skyline, and it all added up to a five-star evening. If you weren’t there or want to relive the evening, the expert eye of Bruce Layman managed to snap every moment of the 5-star night. Gaze at his stellar shots here.
