Yelp Detroit's Holiday Spirits and Cookie Exchange at Mash!

Posted by Annette

Last week, Detroit Elites gathered at Mash in Ann Arbor to spread some holiday cheer and sugar coma it up at our Holiday Spirits Party/Second Annual Cookie Exchange! Elites and their guests turned it out by bringing over 30 different cookies/treats that varied from adorable chocolate chip reindeer to baklava, salted chocolate chip to homemade Oreos!

To help our level our blood sugar, Mash hooked us up with samples of their fine fare like creamy mac and cheese, thyme and cheddar buttermilk biscuits, sesame BBQ chicken wings and soft pretzels. To wash it down they provided tastings of some of their expertly mixed craft bourbon cocktails like the Ginger Mash (fresh strawberries mashed with oranges, Tennessee whiskey, ginger beer and smoked rocks) and Kentucky Blizzard (Maker’s Mark bourbon, hand pressed cranberry, fresh limes, sugar, Fee Brothers American Beauty and a whiskey cube), plus tastings of their house brewed beers!

To continue the holiday cheer we also had a Sketchy Santa photo-booth, a make your own Yelp ornament station, and a holiday giveaway with prizes like fancy ornaments from Bronner’s Christmas Wonderland (the largest Christmas store in the world!) Plus--since there were far too many treats to eat on site, guests were provided adorable holiday take out boxes to fill with sweets to take home and munch on throughout the coming days.

As always, thanks to Doug Coombe for snapping those lovely memories, Robyn T and the affable Drew T for lending a hand and playing Santa (respectively), and a hundred thanks to Mash and their super awesome staff for hosting such a fabulous evening.
