On Tuesday, October 28th, about 60 of the ever fabulous Twin Cities' Elites gathered at Clubhouse Jager to partake in a pre-Halloween warm up party. Could a better venue have been chosen for these festivities? Yelp thinks not.The historic building had a eery yet funky vibe with its low lighting, bygone-era details, and opium den-like booth that hosted our omnicient tarot reader, Viki. Jager's amazing manager, Angie, offered up a delicious spread of tasty meats, cheeses and other fun nibbles and Fabulous Freddie, the shaker of all things Yelptini, made sure the Elites' thirsts were satisfactorily quenched. Travis kept us groovin' while we were all hard at work carving up some spectacular pumpkin art. A huge thank you to all who made MSP Yelp's second Elite event an affair to remember.
So, in short, just what went down? Well many of us saw glipses into our deeper selves with the help from Vicki...some found out they were worriers, some just sailed through life, and one of us found out they were having a 6.9 lb baby boy! Hmmm...only the New Year will tell! Kristian V payed it forward by donating to the Coats for Kids Drive and was the proud recipient of a Kowalski's gift card for his charitable efforts. Thanks to all who donated; there are not 44 Metro Area children who will be a bit warmer this winter. Keith S once again brought along the winners. Not only did his crew win last month's bowling game, but his fan club also won the Pumpkin Carving Competition!! I hope they share the Halloween Microbrews with you Keith! The Aloft ladies came in a close second with their last minute entry of the Accu-Pumpkin. Talk about working under pressure! Ralph M might file a complaint with ACORN for my voting policies, as he thinks I closed the booths a little early!
It was great seeing some new faces in person, like Jim M, Matthew C, Michael C, Sally K, Jen E, and Val B. And, of course, reconnecting with other Elites like Kevin M, Maureen C and Gilbert A (among many more). A yelpin shout out to Gabi K, who travelled all the way from temperate Arizona for this fantastic get together. You rock!
Thanks again to all who came out and an extra special thank you to everyone at Club Jager!! I'm sure many of us will be stopping in soon!
