What better way to start a beautiful weekend than with brunch filled with brackets and booze? Encore Bistro & Bar certainly agreed with the Charlotte Elites and hosted a stunning spread amped with Saturday fun. When guests weren't sipping and savoring, they were putting together their best basketball bracket guesses...top winner, Rob S, scored $50 in Encore bucks for correctly guessing 16/20 winners! Jealous!
Encore's gorgeous bar and patio provided a great backdrop for the bevvy of bombtastic brunch. Large, family style platters full of egg burritos, strawberry french toast, crab cake benedict, and fresh fruit graced the tables. Chad E says, "While it is true that buffet-style has a certain appeal, there is nothing quite like being delivered food right to your table, and this was no exception. Plate after plate of awesomeness came right up and made us wonder what was coming next!"
And no one was at a loss for something to imbibe upon! Encore's Bloody Mary bar and mimosas satisfied many while Crispin Cider was a major fresh hit with the Elites. Will H reflects upon the bevy of beverages, "Nothing gets a morning party started like a Bloody Mary Bar and mimosas flying like hotcakes off the griddle. Not your thing? How about a Crispin Cider for those looking to go a bit more avant-garde?!"
If a boaload of brunch just wasn't enough, Encore's generous neighbors were on hand for fanastic giveaways! The odds were certainly in our favor: five massages from Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa, two necklaces from Why Knot Beading, $50 gift card from Denim Affair, and everyone went home with a sweet discount card to bevello!
