Chicagoland Elites experienced the big + bold flavors of fall this past Wednesday evening at Yelp's Got Beef and Bourbon. The beautifully-appointed Chicago Prime Steakhouse indulged yelpers' guilty pleasures by treating guests to the best of appetizers and prime cuts of (you guessed it)... beef! But, there was far more than "meats" the eye.
Guests gathered in the restaurant's intimate lounge finished with ultra-luxe accents such as marble, dark wood and leather. And, a beautiful mural of the Chicago skyline to boot! While the savvy bartenders whipped up Buffalo Trace bourbon cocktails, party-goers sampled a generous array of Chicago Prime's menu: Thai buffalo shrimp, calamari, sautéed portabella mushrooms, chicken wings, jalapeno poppers and of course, prime steaks. All that noshin' makes for thirsty yelpers – besides fine bourbon, the stellar beverage line-up included libations mixed with Rain Organics Honey Mango Melon and Cucumber Lime vodka, as well as big vino glasses full of Chicago Prime's house Cabernet and Merlot.
Singer extraordinaire, Ed Collins, was literally music to this crowd's ears – his soulful and uncanny renditions of venerable classics made Elites outright swoon! The evening ended with a raffle including gift certificates for some additional wining and dining at Chicago Prime Steakhouse. To catch a glimpse of this memorable event in photos, click here.

Until next time, SYOY!
