Greater Toronto Elites gathered in the northern suburb of Aurora this past Thursday evening for the last Elite Event hurrah of 2012, at Yelp's Hair Affair @ Vanguard Hair Parlour & Spa.
At the stroke of 7:30 PM a line up of excited GTA Elite squad'ers began to build outside the recently opened Vanguard Hair Parlour & Spa in Aurora. Unsure of what lay inside Elites new and old walked into their first non restaurant/bar based Elite event. They were instantly greeted by the beautiful, friendly salon staff, and an extremely well stocked bar. Filled to the brim with tall cans of Cracked Canoe Premium Light Lager, Moosehead Lager, and a strong-feminine specialty cocktail comprised of: Skyy Vodka, Aperol Appertivo and Fentimans Rose Lemonade, apptly named Yelp's Rosy Riveter! "The bar was awesome. Skyy + Tonic? Yes please. The Rosy Riveter was sweet and delicious. Cracked Canoe was awesome. And Moosehead, you can't go wrong there" summed up Abbas N.
It wasn't more than a couple drinks later that an awesome array of eats began to be served, all compliments of Shopsy's Deli & Restaurant in Markham. Between roast beef sliders and many other nibbles to nosh on, Dishan W's "favourite was the chicken bruschetta.. that is until the cheesecake was brought out!" Another spread of fancy foods to fill GTA Elite bellies to the brim!
In addition to the fantastic food and lovely libations, Elites used their mobile devices to check-into the event and claim an amazing check-in offer. With check-in the staff of Vanguard gave out colour consultations and hair adjustments for the ladies, and hair clean ups for the men. Add to that free hand massages, and GTA Elites like Archie T were in heaven - "I got a quick cleanup on my hair and a hand massage while I was there, thanks to Jules and Mina." One of the highlights of the evening was when Ehsan F and Jennifer K won makeovers compliments of Vanguard Hair Parlour - Elites can't wait to see the finished product!
As always the Greater Toronto Elite squad were the reason why we gathered for this Hair Affair and a special thanks goes to each and every one of you for all you do! And as always capturing this event in true style, we must give a huge thank you to Alex S from HD Focus Photography for all his stylish pics!
