What better way to celebrate the first Elite Event of 2013 than whiling away a cruisy afternoon at Cleveland’s Salon & Café, a super-relaxed, effortlessly awesome Surry Hills haven that dishes out classy haircuts and cracking coffees. From secret menu items like smashed banana pain au chocolates to a cheeky whisky with your beard trim, this joint is a damned easy place to keep coming back to.
With Harry (ex-Porteno and Black Star) up front slinging brilliant barista coffees, London- and Paris-trained Pat manned the styling shears and got bizzay with touchups for lucky Yelpers, prompting Elite Peter C to get the haircut he’d needed all summer.
Local heroes Harry’s Café de Wheels joined the party and ensured nobody went hungry with their signature organic pies topped with obligatory mushy peas along with their famous hot dogs. And some astute Yelpers took advantage of Cleveland’s connections and got their Hungry Monday on.
The familiar faces of 2012 Elites got a chance to mingle with reps from the freshly-minted ’13 crop, with next weeks upcoming 80’s Yelper Party a hot topic of conversation.
As always, special thanks to Sam MacDonald Photography for providing the happy snaps of the night. Want more?
And until next time, SYOY!
