The ever-revered Greek philosopher, John "Bluto" Blutarsky asked of us, "what's all this laying around stuff? Why are you all still laying around here for?" And lie around we will not, Bluto. Yelp Indy's Elites took their finest bed sheets and put 'em to better use -- Toga party! Elites convened at Santorini Greek Kitchen to toga, to prove to teetotalers 'round the globe that local craft beer, Flat12 Bierwerks, and luxurious Vodka from Zodiac matter -- and to take down the finest Greek food in town.
Santorini "definitely brought it with a very impressive spread of some of their best dishes. The food was far and beyond other Elite events I have attended. Everything was delicious and there was so much of it," Kjirsten K sings.
Flat12 Bierwerks tapped a keg of their American Wit. They also brought their very special seasonal -- Glazed Ham Porter. Along with their Puppet Show Pale Ale, Half Cycle IPA and Milk Stout, Flat12 gave the Elite Squad the lowdown on Indy being a boon town for beer pre-prohibition. And now with Flat12 on the scene... history looks to repeat itself. And Zodiac Vodka brought their luxury potato vodka to craft "icebreaker" cocktails and their black cherry luxury vodka, too.
Elites, old school and new school, gathered to get to know one another, win prizes like Yelp lunchboxes and Flat12 "Jesus Loves Porter" shirts, and revel in the reality that, yet again, all under one roof, Yelp is connecting awesome locals to awesome local businesses.
Thanks to Santorini owners Taki & Jeanette for being such gracious Grecian hosts.
Thanks to SolarFlarePhoto for the shutterbuggery.
Five stars are rolling in here.
