Twin Cities Elites Put On The Ritz for The Great Yelpsby!

Posted by Annie D

"The bar is in full swing, and floating rounds of cocktails permeate the garden outside, until the air is alive with chatter and laughter..." -F. Scott Fitzgerald


Paying tribute to local author F. Scott Fitzgerald (perhaps the most famous Minnesotan of the decadent Jazz Age), Minneapolis Elite yelpers certainly partied like it was 1929 at The Great Yelpsby.

Now, it's quite possible that Twin Cities yelpers were all born in the wrong era, because the whole lot arrived at Restaurant Max in their gladdest glad-rags, looking like they walked straight outta the roaring '20s!

Restaurant Max hosted more than a hundred ladies and gents in a private section of the marble-columned restaurant that's also home to a gorgeous, original bank vault wine cellar from the former Midland Bank.

On the menu for this hot-to-trot crowd? Tender lamb lollipops, savory ahi tuna tartare, edamame, gourmet grilled cheese and sliders. Not only that, but the bartender created a menu of modern, but classically inspired cocktails like Daisy's Gatsby with Svedka, green tea and tarragon, an updated Old Fashioned with tasty Bulleit Bourbon and the Little Devil with Three Olives Lemon Lime Vodka.

Yelpers also enjoyed an indoor version of Daisy Buchanan's favorite past-time. The group played a rousing game of "croquet" involving special challenges at each "wicket," including a yo-yo contest that we came to realize was physically impossible. Still, everybody gave it the ol' college try and had a ball!
