The Yelp Elite Kick Off 2012 @ The 1933 Lounge

The Yelp Indy Elite Squad kicked off 2012 in high-style at The 1933 Lounge. Let's let The Elite Squad and the photos tell the rest of the story....

Jonathan M "J-Mac" says, "This event was off the charts. Sun King Osiris Pale Ale as I walk in the door...  check. Open bar for 2 hours... check. World famous St Elmo's shrimp cocktail... hell yea. Free filet mignon sliders... are you kidding me? Exclusive Sun King Bourbon Barrel Aged Sunlight cream ale tapping... okay, this is ridiculous."

Kahrma D details the drinks: "The house special Elmo Cola arrived with a small glass bottle of Coke, a rocks glass filled with vanilla bean bourbon, & delicious skewered, bourbon soaked drunken cherries. We were all treated to a special tapping of a not-yet-available-to-the-public variety of Sun King."





Erin J "loved seeing all the interpretations of the theme" of red bow ties!

Kara P sums it up: "Yelp, Sun King, and The St. Elmo 1933 Lounge? I cannot think of a more perfect combination." Word.

It was a bourbontastic afternoon! Most of us started out with the Elmo Cola -- Maker's Mark infused with cherry and vanilla, served with a glass bottled Coke. Topped with bourbon-soaked cherries, it was quite possible the world's most perfect drink.

Round two -- Sun King's bourbon barrel ale. Equally wonderful in a different way. Rich, bourbony (is that an adjective?), delish. These were great drinks to wash down the filet sliders, cooked perfectly medium, tender, without an ounce of fat, on the best little buns. It was served with a horseradish sauce, but was pretty perfect just served alone. The shrimp cocktail skewers were exceptional, natch. Runny noses and tears for everyone!! They also served little spinach dip bites on little cheese crostinis. Heaven. I could have eaten an entire tray.

The service was exceptional, the interior beautiful in a manly dark wood kinda way, and the history of the bar itself was fascinating. Do your mouth a favor and go here.
