Yelp Chicagoland Goes Alfresco!

Posted by Jelena Z

Chicagoland Elites painted the picture of summertime frolic last Thursday: 150 Elites and their guests gathered for a sun-drenched and later a star-soaked evening on Italian restaurant Carlucci's patio. Guests sipped on summery cocktail fave, Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka cocktails, and enjoyed Magic Hat #9 brew as well as Santa Marina Pinot Grigio and Pinot Noir wines from Virtus Wines International.

Party revelers also indulged in a decadent spread courtesy of our generous host Carlucci including pizza, calamari, baked swordfish rolls, pasta with grilled chicken, Salmon Livernese, Chicken Marsala and crowd pleaser, arancini (fried risotto balls)!  When guests weren't eating and drinking their little hearts out, they swayed to the sounds of live band Frank and Dave and mega-mingled on the beautifully landscaped patio. A few lucky guests even won accommodations to Harrah's in New Orleans and Las Vegas!

ShutterBox Photo Booth was there to capture all the good times (password: partypics), and photographer Zoran Orlic caught the highly-stylized candids. Make sure you read all the rave reviews to find out what you missed
