On a frigid Monday night, Boston Elites donned their most dashing duds and strutted over to Aura
Restaurant in The Seaport Hotel for an evening that catered to the delight of all five senses. Think dashingly dressed guys and gals, fine wines from around the world, decadent food pairings, the enchanting music of a five-piece jazz band and a mini massage lounge to keep things feeling fine.
With all of the wines coming from the surplus of this past weekend's Boston Wine Expo, Elites were among the first in the world to sample these delicious wines that haven't even hit the stores yet. While Shaina G sipped the Crios Torrentes, Blair H got his nose all up in some italian red. Paired with sweet desserts, spicy snacks, savory dishes and a plethora of cheeses and antipasti, there
was a flavor profile for everyone. And for those who don't dig vino, like Jessika D, there was also a station with fancy Harpoon beer!
As the sweet sounds of jazz wafted through the room, we waved goodbye to Argentina-bound Erica S
and said hello to newly Elite Anthony R, Purvi R and Liana K, as Elite-Event first-timer Arestia R danced a little two step! Outside in the massage lounge, Amanda H felt the knots melt away into sweet, sweet relaxation.
Many, many heartfelt thanks to the amazing, knowledgeable and professional staff at Aura Restaurant and the Seaport Hotel for catering to our every food and wine need with swift style. A standing ovation for the selected members of The Beantown Swing Orchestra for providing the music that really set the mood. And a round of applause goes out to Michael Moore and company, of Moore Massage, for nixing all those kinks! And as always, our eternal gratitude to Yumiko F for taking good care of the door and to Miriam W for lending a hand all the way from NYC!
Incase you need another dose of sensory satiation, check out the official photos, snapped by our very own Tatsu I, and be sure to use your Aura gift card on your return trip! Don't forget to add your own see, hear, touch, taste and smell experience to the already ample array of reviews!
Here's to keepin' it classy, Boston!
