Greater Toronto Area Elites have got it bad, so bad, they're hot for Elite Events (and teacher)! On Sunday night Yelp Elite Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors alike gathered in Vaughan for their first day of class at the Welcome Back Elite Class of 2013 @ G Bistro + Patio Elite event.
Arriving promptly at the sound of the 7PM bell (and in full uniform), yelpers entered G Bistro + Patio where they found a selection of beers provided by Mill St. Brewery and Steam Whistle Brewery flowing like wine. "Mill Street brewery was awesome, I loved the doppel Pilsner and the Belgian style ales. Thanks to Steam Whistle brewery as well whose pilsner is always a hit" raved Sami E. Speaking of Wine, if superb suds weren't enough Elites were also treated to an exclusive selection of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Grigio compliments of Lifford Wine & Spirits.
After getting in a bevie or two, Yelpers were privy to a seemingly endless sample of G Bistro's delicious menu. Chicken-Peanut Satay Skewers, Chipotle Pulled Pork Sliders, Coconut Shrimp, Calamari and more and more - not your typical brown bagged lunch! Henry P adds "The pepper fries, shrimp fritters, chicken skewers and the pork and beef sliders were ridiculously good!"
While the food and drink was flowing, Yelp GTA got the fun times going. A Check-In offer which taught Elites a new super-secret-school-yard-handshake (the GTA-5), and smooth Saxophone Jazz sounds filled the room compliments of local artist Igor Babich, all gave the night a fun-classy appeal. But the highlight of the evening came in the form of the nights icebreaker, which had Elites and their guests introducing themselves to one another in an effort to "Steal yo' Lunch Money." Competition got tight but in the end 3 lucky Elites scored opening night tickets to the Port Credit Comedy Festival.
Elites were reason for the back to class season and as always a big thank you goes out to those uniform clad folks – The GTA Elite Squad. Last but certainly not least, huge thank you goes out to Catch Photo (our very own Edwin A) for stepping up and providing amazing photos of the event!
