Yelp PVD Violates The Volstead Act @ Vanity!
Yelp PVD Elite got together last Thursday night to Violate The Volstead Act at Vanity, and had a hotsy-tosty time indeed. "This was a fantastic event," gushes Edward H. "From the food, to the drinks, to the friendly and beautiful bar keepers, Vanity rocked it – I actually didn't want to leave when it was time to depart! Vanity, I'm definitely making a return. I'm a huge fan!"
Vanity's setup inspired the speakeasy theme with their "bar staff in suspenders, historic 20's pictures lining the walls, jazz overhead and period movies" flickering throughout the space. Jennifer H notes, "a proper PVD Elite Event wouldn't be complete without amazing cocktails, and the bartenders at Vanity delivered" with their selections the French 76 (an elevated version of the classic French 75), the E&T (a homemade take on the G&T with house tonic and peppercorn – yes! – garnish) and The Penicillin (a whiskey drink with ginger, lemon and honey). These drinks were "clean, smooth and delicious," and have Jen promising she "will definitely be returning for every drink on that cocktail menu!"
Oh, "but the food! The spread of food was endless. It seemed" to Jaclyn P that "they were bringing out more and more food until the very end." Her favorite? "The penne with pink sauce – love me some pink sauce. The grilled pizzas were delicious as well," and Meaghan K concurs with "the margarita one being my favorite, but the eggplant was a close second.' Kisha T couldn't get enough of the "perfectly-cooked and highly addicting" Italian Eggrolls, stuffed with salami, red peppers and three cheese blend topped with a basil aioli, and Christina V decided "the calamari was my favorite. That tangy Asian sauce was fantastic!"
The Shutterbooth pics "made for a great party favor," and the "goofy props" inspired S Nicole M to let loose for the camera. "As usual, the Elite crowd knows how to mix and mingle. It's always a pleasure to see old pals and make some new ones." Brad Smith's presence made this "humdinger of a party complete by capturing those special moments" throughout the evening. In Jennifer E's opinion, this night was "the bees knees," and I couldn't agree more!
Until next time, my little chickadees...
