Ahoy, matey! It was a balmy summer evening on the East River when a couple hundred Elites arrived in style at the Water Club. While the well-heeled dined downstairs, the enviable Elites climbed upstairs to the seasonal outdoor bar with sweeping views. As Rae F chirped, "The view at the Crow's Nest was magnificent. I could see across the pond to my home of Queens!"
Many an (in)famous yelper made an appearance, perusing the mini-burger and hot dog bar outside, taking Sagatiba Cachaça shots with sugared strawberry chasers, cooling off with Coronas and watching the boats go by.
As the caipirinhas kicked in, the Southwestern food bar inside got hopping as folks scooped up some dips, chips and delicious bites. Peter D manned the corner wine bar, serving up Pinot Grigios and Cabernets to starstuck Elites, triggering a few double takes and several photo ops.
Winding down the evening, yelpers caught rides to the 6 train courtesy of the Zipcar crew, since a night like this could could not be capped on foot. A big thank you to the incredible staff at the Crow's Nest for making it a night to remember!
