Though the chilly weather was an unfortunate reminder that winter is indeed coming, Twin Cities Elites spent the evening pretending summer will never end at Yelp's Endless Summer!
This patio party was hosted by Mosaic Cafe, a casual Longfellow restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. They also have one of the most beautiful patios in the land under a multi-story mosaic mural, so it provided the perfect backdrop for one last taste of summer.
Mosaic's chef rolled out a sensational series of sliders including their grass-fed Farmhouse burger, housemade vegetarian Moonburger, Kadejan chicken torta and throwback Waldorf salad with all the trimmings. (TIP: When you make the trip back, do not miss the baked rosemary fries. Life-affirming.)
Party favors weren't quite enough, so more than a dozen lucky winners went home with special Elite Squad seating at the premiere of Amaluna by Cirque du Soleil on September 26!
If you still aren't convinced that this event was hot enough to fry an egg, you're welcome to read the rave reviews on Yelp (or write one yourself if you were there—just remember to hold off on your reviews of the participating businesses until you've had a more typical customer experience). Make sure to check out all the party pics on Flickr (thanks to the lovely Jenna Klein Photography!).
A huge thanks to the incomparable people who helped put this party together—you are THE best. A special gracias to Bobby Patrick from the Gypsy Lumberjacks, who serenaded the party goers with an acoustic set. And a big thanks to all the yelpers who came out to celebrate these awesome Longfellow businesses!
