On Thursday evening, an intimate group of Elites gathered to partake in Horseshoe Casino's 'Perfect Pairings' tasting by Chef Chris Baulo while overlooking Lake Michigan in the famed penthouse-level Lakeview Room. Guests began with savories of suckling pig, salmon, and lamb lollipops paired with sips from Lagunitas, Traverse City Whiskey Co, Oliver Winery, Tabor Hill Winery and finished with a well-timed Cadbury Egg station... but not before being let loose on the casino floor with $25 worth of free play - another winning night for the record books.
