Patio weather has officially hit the Texas hill country and San Antonio Elites welcomed the season with open arms at a September sunset soiree at Knife & Fork Gastropub for the Yelp Elite Patio Pow Wow.
"Yelpers who know their stuff about San Antonio, plus booze from Bacardi (Wolfberry FTW), Blue Moon and Lienenkugel PLUS delicious bite-sized snacks from the Knife & Fork kitchen" all equal the perfect combo, according to Ash M.
Said boozey beverages started with specialty cocktails featuring new Bacardi flavors, Black Razz and Wolfberry. Bar staff used their skills to concoct a Blueberry Lemonade with ginger beer and Raspberry Mojito – each with fresh muddled fruit. Bottles of Blue Moon and Leinenkugel Oktoberfest from our friends at MillerCoors adorned the tables in ice-cold buckets and kept Elites' thirst quenched within arm's reach. And for the ultimate beer nerds, twelve varieties of Duff distributed beer were on tap for the taking, including Wasatch, Leprechaun Cider, and Southern Star. Curt C was "blown away by the variety of beers we got hooked up, with a stout that was to die for!"
To accompany the free-flowing libations, Knife & Fork's 5-star servers continued to place plates full of mouth-watering noshes throughout the evening: Their popular brunch item barbacoa tacos, then the slider version of their famous $13 burger made from short rib with candied bacon and gorgonzola. To top it all off, mini melt-in-your-mouth cinnamon rolls that made us all rethink the concept of dessert!
Sippin' on some adult beverages came in handy when it was time to "release our inner top model," acoording to Ryan C. The photo booth brought to us by Josh Huskin Photo and his "fantastic mustache" boasted unique props created by local artist Jeremiah Teutsch – a life-sized knife and fork! American Gothic anyone? Elites may have strayed from the original vision, but their artistic direction shined through in some elitely creative pics that can all be seen here.
