Charlotte Elites Kick It '50s Style!
Charlotte Elites certainly know how to make it a Monday Funday as they gathered at Mattie's Diner for a '50s soiree. These plucky Elites feasted on delicious spiked milkshakes, endless eats and were treated to some super swing dancing that was outta sight.
As Elites filled in to Mattie's Diner, they were wowed with the vintage decor and incredibly sweet staff. Sliding into booths or onto swivel chairs, these Charlotte vocal locals tasted some of Sparrow & Associates delicious liquor within their spiked milkshakes. Whether it was a Buttery Bourbon, Cherry Kick Float or a Spiked Elvis, these Elites dined on some delicious concoctions. Tiffany N very much preferred the Spiked Elvis, while Michael E favored the Buttery Bourbon.
Meanwhile, to add some fire to their bellies, Mattie's served up incredible diner bites like buffalo chicken dip, deep fried bacon wrapped hotdogs, peanut butter banana french toast, soon to be famous meatlof, peach cobbler and homemade carrot cake. If an Elite wasn't full that night, they didn't come to the party! Anika G says, "The event was awesome! I'll be dreaming about that buffalo chicken dip."
The night ended with some incredible swing dancing from Denise & Joe Polsgrove from Gottaswing Charlotte. Their punchy moves and aerial flips were absolutely amazing!
