Vancouver Elites Have A Cozy Up Pajama Party At 131 Water
It may be cold and rainy outside, but Vancouver Elites cozied up in their PJs in Vancouver's historical Gastown neighbourhood at 131 Water Restaurant and Bar on Wednesday night. That's right, "three rockin' floors of pajama-party fun is the best way to party in December!"
"It was a clever plan, giving people plenty of food, drinks, and candy while in our sleepwear, so that we could crawl into bed once we got home, all carbed, sugared, and boozed-out." And carbed, sugared, and boozed-out they were! Annie W has never "come across servers that were so eager to bring me stuff. Lots of nibbles just showed up at our table: Spoonfuls of Chilli, Mini Fish & Chips, Turkey & Veggie Sliders. It was way more food than I was expecting!"
Nicole F "had a glass of Barefoot Shiraz in my hand before I even left the front area, which I followed with a warm boozey Maker's Mark apple cider. SO delicious!" Yumm! "The bar was packed as usual serving warm and traditional drinks," like the warm apple cider from Maker's Mark (thanks Beam Global!), the very timely Granville Island Winter Ale, and some awesome Pinot Grigio and Shiraz from Barefoot Winery. Then Fritz S headed "upstairs and you got your Gingerbread making station with all sorts of candy decorations. Oh man, a fat man's fantasy right there!" Nicole F agreed: "Within 10 minutes of finding the candy buffet with the naked gingerbread men," she "decided this was the best elite event ever."
"Yelpers are hardcore - really hardcore. Who else dresses in pajamas in the middle of December to a party in Gastown?" Evilyn T even brought along a "pink-haired +1 down for her first ever elite event. Hah! Another converted, do I get a door prize for that?" Well… maybe? But like Simon K said, " on a wet and chilly night, somehow this Yelp party was one of the warmest things" of the season. "It was a great way to wind down 2011," and Theresa W "can't wait to see what 2012 has in store for Yelp Vancouver!" And neither can we.
A huge thank you to the amazing and talented staff at 131 Water for an outstanding evening, and to photographer Aziz Dhamani for capturing it all and posting to Flickr. Read more about the event in the reviews found here.
