Yelpers showed up in impressive force to the Davis Street Tavern in Old Town Portland to take part in an Old Town Revival – Yelp Style. A crowd of 110+ Yelp Elites and guests converged on this oasis of good food and drink to partake in some Yelp Elite fun!
The Davis Street Tavern sure does know how to make a drink. Yelpers were treated to three high-end cocktails made with Maker's Mark bourbon, all delicious: whiskey smashes, old fashioneds, and mint julep snow cone shots! Yes, you heard that right! Snow cones! Along with the Westland Lane Pinot and delicious ice cold Trumer Pilsner, well, let's just say there was no shortage of tasty beverages! While the amazing servers passed effortlessly through the throng of Yelpers and guests with trays chock full of drinks, the Elites were hard pressed to decide: "which to sample first?" Chris L, unable to choose, just grabbed one of each.
Next came some trays of gourmet passed bites such as sausage with fruit compote and a selection of meats en croute. The delicious nibbles did a great job of complimenting the insanely tasty (and potent) cocktails.
A few lucky folks (including Chloë W’s +1) walked away with tickets to the Best of Oregon Food and Wine Festival (look for Davis Street Tavern at the festival!!) and a couple of Elites like Nader A walked off with some bottles of Maker's Mark! Not too shabby, if you ask us!
A mighty thanks goes out to Christopher, Blake and Gretchen from the Davis Street Tavern for throwing a downright amazing event, to the ever-generous Cody from Maker's Mark, to the folks over at Westland Lane for the amazing Pinot, and to Dan over at Gambrinus for the Trumer Pilsner! Thanks to Joshua C and DMK for taking photos! Also a huge and everlasting thanks to you, the Portland Elite Squad, for making Yelp what it is.
Check out the reviews and photos of the event! It was a good one!
If you were not able to attend the event, not to worry. There are plenty more in the works. Keep your eye on your email in-box for fun giveaways and more Elite Events to come.
Until next time…
