Game on, Yelp!
The Chicago Yelp Elite Squad gathered on a frigid Saturday afternoon at Noble Tree Coffeehouse for a session of board games, cozy (spiked) coffees, sweet treats and intense competition. Stepping in from the cold, guests were greeted promptly with a "Hot Joe" shot, consisting of Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey, coffee liqueur and cream...warmed them right up!
Then straight up to the second and third floors to explore the expansive, vintage coffeeshop sprinkled with games, tables & chairs, desserts and friendly faces. Props to Jennifer B
and Ryan L
for winning the raffle prizes, a bottle of their preferred sponsor liquor and a Hoosier Mama Pie
gift certificate. Sounds like a winning combo to stay warm for the next few months, guys!
Many thanks to our host, Noble Tree Coffeehouse in Lincoln Park for providing ample caffeine, cozy nooks, cool decor and lots of space to curl up and escape the winter doldrums! Hoosier Mama Pie Company
(serving "chess" pie among others) and Pastries Not Potatoes
(Trivial Pursuit cupcakes, Pac-Man cheesecakes, Domino brownies and tic-tac-toe sugar cookies, say wha!?) were also on hand providing enough sugar to keep the whole crowd buzzin'! Ah, and don't forget the tasty drinks served up courtesy of Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey, Rain Vodka and Dr. Cherry Schnapps (mmm, with hot cocoa!)...warm and toasty!
and Matt Ginge
r documented the intense bouts of Scrabble, Monopoly, Partini, Catch Phrase, Trivial Pursuit and many others...click here
