Best of Yelp! Chicago Elites Paint & Sip Party!Paint and sip with the best of Yelp? Yes we did! The Yelp Elites were here to paint, drink and have fun with us. We welcomed Yelp Community Director, Alex Shebar, to Chicago with a paint and sip party for the Yelp Elite Team! Check out what they had to say...
The best of Yelp deserve the best sip and paint experience Chicago can offer, which is why we were stoked to help welcome the new Yelp Chicago Community Director, Alex Shebar, to Chicago this year with his first Yelp Elite event in our fabulous city and the first Yelp Elite event of the year! Oh what a night...we did have ourselves some fun!
Here's what the Yelp Elites had to say about their night at Pinot's Palette Logan Square. Excerpts from the Elites:
"I live right by this place and never thought painting could be so fun. I can see why people paint to relax! I loved how casual and easy the painting was...The whole interior is really nice. They have a full bar and attentive bartenders." Leanne A.
"I also want to give a huge thanks to the staff and owners of Pinot's Palette in Logan Square. The space is amazing and the activity was very creative...We started off our evening with the signature cocktail which was a Kedzie Greyhound Martini. It was made with grapefruit vodka, tequila and lime and perfectly shaken by our bartender Dusty. Dusty was great and made cocktails with precision. There was never a line for drinks which told me he knew how to run a bar and how to keep a party going. Great job Dusty and thanks." Anthony M.
"Last night I had some of the most fun I've ever had at a Yelp event! We dined, we drank, we were merry! The staff at Pinot's Palette was all fabulous beyond belief. Awesome bartender, awesome owners, awesome everyone I talked to." Sarah S.
"I've done these paint nights before and they are always a good time. What puts Pinot's Pallete over the top is their full bar!" Jannis W.
"The entire staff was super nice and hospitable all evening. They really made us feel like they were having us over at their own home. That's exactly the kind of service that you want to see at this kind of establishment, and attracts people to come back! If the other events in 2017 are anything like this, we are in for a treat this year." Daniel Y.
"This was one of the best Yelp events that I've been to! ...First Pinot's Palette is a great space. I couldn't believe they have enough space in their main studio for 56 people to be painting! Also having a bar and back room really make it a wonderful space to have a event in! The owners and staff at Pinot's Palette are all wonderful. Everyone was incredibly helpful and friendly, talented and useful, and most of all fun to be around. This is the normal goal for anyone in the hospitality industry, but it is rare to see a full staff that are all this great and work together this well." Anne S.
"I felt like everything was so incredibly organized, and I was such a fan of that! I loved the names written in chalk, having that many different colors to use in my painting, and the fact that they had staff circulating to help with anything and everything (including drink refills!) The staff was super kind, and complimented my far from perfect painting. They make everyone feel comfortable and confident painting." Selena C.
"Our instructor was Great! She made the class really fun and went at a nice speed. Sips were flowing and the music added to the ambience." Tavi J.
"The event was very fun, and the staff at Pinot's Palette were all so nice and helpful. I really loved that they customized the layouts with our names written in chalk under our easels. It was nice that you could 'order' drinks from your seat just by raising a peace sign!" Peggah G.
"The cool thing about Pinot's is that it has a bar, whereas a lot of these painting places are BYOB." Shanti N.
"I had the red wine on the menu and it was delicious. The staff taught us this trick where you can throw up a peace sign while you're painting and someone from the bar would bring you a drink. I'm still trying to teach this trick to my husband while I'm on the couch to no avail." Kate D.
Don't worry, Kate. Your peace sign works here! We've got you, girl.
