Yelp Glasgow's 2013 Games Elite Event @ Dukes!
Dukes Bar were our gracious hosts for our August Elite Event! Yelpers were provided with samples of Asahi as well as house wines for those more partial to the grape. Guests mixed and mingled and eyed off the board games laying in wait for someone to play - we had Uno Roboto, Connect 4, Pass the Pigs as well as Sort it Out (better pronounced Sort it Ooot!).
Dukes also laid on a spread of some of their most loved menu items - pulled pork ciabattas were a real hit as were the selection of pies - Aberdeen Angus as well as chicken, bacon & leek. To really get your tastebuds tingling the special dish of the night was Jaal Moori - a Bengali snack of chick peas, onion, Bombay mix, puffed rice, cucumber, lime and chillies on the side! Were your tastebuds up to the challenge (mine were, and I want more!!)?
To top it off there was the amazing musical backing of the folk session musicians who jammed away and gave the night a magical feel with some great Scottish music. After some bevvies were consumed the board game action really took off ... although some of us needed to refresh our memories for the rules of Uno!
Steven B says "Great host for a Yelp night, where the drinks and grub went down a treat. 1.5 beers for the missus is a new record, so thanks Yelp for leading her down the dark side... Was cool to meet some new folks and catch up with less new folks. Good crowd!"
Andrew C says "Great group of people and a wonderful venue usually results in a good night and that was true of this event. The staff did a great job of getting the drinks and food to people. Good people, good food, great night."
Nicola C says "I had an amazing night! (Of course, it's a Yelp event!) With Asahi, live music and tasty food, it was a night to remember. I'd not ventured to Old Dumbarton Road for a drink before, but Dukes is a great example of what's on offer. The bar staff were great and the snacks were refreshingly unique."

A huge thank you to Iff & Derek at Dukes for making the event such a wonderful night, the folk session muscians, as well as Alasdair Watson Photography for snapping some seriously great pics, as always!
See you on Yelp!
