Stay in your neck of the woods, Snooki. We're talking the sportiest of attire, and the denizens of Title City arrived in fanatical style – adorned in their team's colors and ready to rock a very Fenway Elite Event! The good folks at Sweet Caroline's dark wood doors swung open Monday to welcome Boston's best Yelpers for a night of bites, brews and a living, breathing Green Monster.
Sister to Battery Park in the Financial, Sweet Caroline's features upscale twists on bodacious bar grub. Chef Joshua Smith (of Four Seasons and Tico fame) circulated silver platter after platter of buffalo chicken rangoon, Philly cheesesteak eggrolls, brioche sliders, mushroom quesadillas and more. If that weren't enough, Chef manned a grouper ceviche station/heirloom tomato gazpacho bar and the result? Holly B "finally left an Elite event completely stuffed with food!" Will wonders never cease?
Tasty morsels weren't the only things passing lips. Split-level bars and talented 'tenders slung Bacardi-backed Cucumber Basil Mojitos and Absolut Limoncello Drops, while hoppier attendees sipped freshly tapped Harpoon and Newcastle. And what's a sporty-spiced party without a little local representation? The Boston Derby Dames posed for photo ops and Social Boston Sports played an ill-fated game of cornhole (footspace is a premium at Elite events). No worries, lucky raffle winners scored Derby and SBS Harbor Cruise tickets, as well as a fall cornhole league registration – toss 'em if you got 'em!
Yelp Boston's official photog Tatsu snapped from Spiderman spots for these pro pics (tag away on Facebook!) You can read the five-star reviews here and rock the Talk, iffn you'd like. Good times never felt so good, so good, so good.
The Diamond To Your Neil,
