Yelp NC Triangle Elite Class of 2012: Prom Night
For Yelp Triangle's third annual prom, we gathered at Sullivan's Steakhouse for a sea-faring adventure otherwise known as... Nautical by Nature. Sullivan's exquisite private rooms hosted us with elegance and comfort; but their 5-star chef and staff were what really made our stay special. Yelps Stacy B, "Sullivan's presented a beautiful display of not only food, but decor... an ice sculpture! woop woop! I felt so fancy while I was engulfing oysters and tenderloin. I can't wait to go back!" And Heather B gushes, "I was very impressed with Sullivan's staff...super efficient and helpful. They seriously hustled. By the time I finished my last bite, my plate was tidily whisked away. As my wine glass became close to empty, a server came by to refill it. Wow!"
On hand, were unlimited beer & wine pours from our two deliciously drinakble co-sponsors, Cupcake Vineyards and –- local to Clayton -- Deep River Brewing. Kelly M "bounced back and forth," to find "the wit beer and the sweet chocolate stout both left [her] taste buds satisfied." Meanwhile, Ron W praises Cupcake for their "great vino -- loved your Red Velvet" but admits,"I think it had SOME-thing to do with my slow start at work this morning."
After an hour downing drinks and more tasty tid-bits like shrimp cocktail and crab bruschetta, Yelpers crossed the restaurant to enter the Library where DJ Feel the Sound of Music with Motion was getting the party started. They "played a lot of great music," and Cait H "heartily thanks them for including Journey AND Bon Jovi." As such, the dance floor -- dazzling with lights -- was literally bumping from start til finish.
Sullivan's had even more stuff up their sleeve, as they did a three-part raffle awarding lucky Yelpers with exclusive Sullivan's wine blends, free meals, and... whoopee cushions! And in the Library, they treated guests to even more fancy finger foods, including a cheese platter with fresh fruits.
We crowned a new Prom King and Queen -- Brittany F and Andrew. And at the end of the evening, no one wanted to leave. Tripp W announces, "I think this may have been my favorite Elite Event ever!" And Cait echoes us all in saying, "Big thanks to Sullivan's for letting us get jiggy with it in the middle of their classy spot!"
