Happy Halloween yelpers! On Friday night, Gordon Bennett (a mustachioed legend in his own right) and the best of Brooklyn Yelp synced up for a 'Stache Bash for the ages. There were handlebars, Fu Manchus, Reverse Hitlers, Awkward Teenagers, finger-staches, walruses (walrusi?) and even a Bearded Lady. It was a facial hair extravaganza that would've made Magnum PI proud.
All night, the Gordon Bennett bartenders kept the cocktails flowing from Bulldog Gin, not to mention slinging suds courtesy of Fire Island Beer and Belhaven Scottish Stout. Some froth may have stuck in a 'stache or two, but it was a small price to pay for principle.
Gordon Bennett's crack kitchen staff served up a stellar spread including wonderful wings, garlic fries, mini-burgers (beef and veggie), bruschetta, and a warm crème brulée bread pudding that stole the show.
By the end of the evening, spooky sights were spotted; mustaches were migrating across faces, and even bottles, drinks and pumpkins were participating in the facial hair frenzy.
A huge thank you goes out to Lee and the rest of the Gordon Bennett staff for welcoming the Yelp Elite with open arms. Whether or not you made it out, be sure to check out the pictures and the reviews!
