Yelp Elites celebrated the holiday season in style at Annapolis' newest haven of luxury living, Crosswinds at Annapolis Towne Centre, with a bevvy of sensory-stimulating sponsors thanks to "Yelp's Suits, Sips, & Sounds Holiday Elite Event."
Bozzuto's posh palace and urban oasis set the stage for Yelp's final Elite Event of the Year and boy, was it a doozy with live music from a national jazz recording artist, Marcus Johnson and his trio, fantastic food from Mother's Peninsula Grille, and a firsthand look at fashion-forward designs from Capital Custom Clothiers.
"I really don't think that a Yelp Elite event can get any better!" Brooke T exclaims. "I absolutely enjoyed all things about this event. Actually, I would have been content just listening to the smooooove sounds of thee Marcus Johnson, without anything else." But something else got her going as well: Johnson's own signature brand of wines, which he was proud to let Elites and their guests sample. "The FLO wine was awesome! "
Dawn R seconds that. "The FLO wines were great. I didn't try the Moscato, but the Chardonnay and the red were very good."
"Yelp's Suits, Sips, & Sounds Holiday at Crosswinds" served as as an official kick off event for a collaborative effort between FLO Brands and Capital Custom Clothiers, the premier luxury men's shop in Annapolis, thus giving Elites and their guests have a front row ticket to what's to come.
"My favorite vendor goes to the clothier, Capital Custom Clothiers," says Kapri G, who was happy to see Crosswind's conference room turned into a mini-showroom for the business. "The mannequins displayed had appealing ties, jackets and not to mention the reps both were very well dressed... Totally in love and will be visiting them in the near future."
And who can overlook the food and drink?! Certainly not Dan A! "Mother's Grille is definitely a beloved institution in Baltimore city and it was cool to find out there was another location in Arnold," he gushes. "Their food hit the spot too. Loved the boneless wings, ahi tuna, and the mac and cheese. Drinks were great too. Deep Eddy Vodka came by with some sweet tea vodka. It apparently brewed with real tea leaves... and it really did taste like tea. Very cool!"
For Jen L though, it was all about location, location, location! "I love it when Yelp Elite Events comes to Annapolis! What a great location for this one! If I didn't already live here, I'd be all about this swank apartment building, which really feels like a high-end hotel in the Town Center."
That's what living the high life is all about, my friends!
Until the next Elite Event...
