Yelp Denver's March Madness Mania Elite Event!

The Ides of March Madness Mania are upon us and Boy – did Yelp Denver have a blast celebrating the exciting sports season with the newest restaurant to hit the infamous Larimer Square scene – Tom's Urban 24!? The answer is Yes. The 24 hour diner and brain child of excuberant owner, Tom Ryan boasts delicous bites ranging from buffalo wings to flash fried brussel sprouts, and the Yelp Denver Elites were lucky enough to nosh and imbibe while rooting on their favorite collegiate basketball team on screens dispersed throughout the spaces live streaming the games.

Collage1Guests were greeted by the "friendly, Inviting, and welcoming" servers and guided upstairs to their own exclusive space on Tom's Urban Perch. Rounds and rounds of food from the likes of buffalo wings,  Truffle Parmesan Popcorn With Rosemary, Tuscan White Bean Dip with Grilled Flatbread, Asian Glazed Duck Wings & Honey Chipotle Wings, Mushroom Truffle Arugula Artisan Urban Pizza, Tuscan Kale and Romaine Caesar, Fried Brussels Sprouts, Truffle Lobster & Shrimp Pot Pie, and Butterscotch Pudding were generously served. The bountiful buffet kept our bellies full and hearts happy, but Cheryl L speaks for the majority when she yelps, "the star of the night were the Brussles Sprouts. Perfectly cooked and perfectly seasoned. I could have eaten 5 bowls by myself. The duck wings were great and really liked the White Bean Hummus," too!

The spread of savory, salty, and sweet dishes were a plenty as were the concoctions so cleverly created by Tom's Urban 24 mixologists. In keeping with with the competitive spirit of the basketball brackets, guests were asked to sample and vote on 4 acclaimed cocktails competing in our own version of a Final Four: the Yelp, the Colfax Cooler, the 5280 Margarita, and the WTF. Jenn B sums the sipping up when she yelps, "Oh the drinks and how happy they make me as I slurp each one down.  I liked the Margarita, classic and oh so refreshing.  My pick for the night was the Yelp cocktail, a little sweet, just how I like it and very strong.  All the cocktails were strong, this is a sign of an excellent bartender.  Kudos to the bartender and drink creators." After rounds of voting for their favorite elixir for the evening a National Cocktail Champion was finally chosen. Erin S certainly had her fun sampling all 4 of the cocktails, but she "thinks her favorite though was the WTF! I can't remember everything that was in there (hence the name I'm guessing) but it was surely yummy! So, Without further ado – the cocktail to take home the winning title...drumroll please...was the Yelp cockail!
