Chicagoland Yelp Elites Go Far East on the North Shore!

Chicagoland Elites sure know how to combat a case of the Mondays! This past Monday, Elites and their guests brought their appetites and curiosity to sophisticated Asian eatery, Koi, in the north shore suburb of Evanston.

To start the evening right, guests were greeted with their choice of a welcome drink: Designer vodka cocktails courtesy of Zodiac, a glass of wine, or sake. Partygoers were then escorted to a private back room they could call their own, where an elegant feast awaited them. Assorted maki rolls, crabmeat won tons, vegetable rolls, edamame, and crowd favorite, spicy chicken wings, all made the cut. There was nothing coy about Koi's intent to please and appease!

In between extreme mingling, noshing and cocktailing, guests jumped into the ShutterBooth photobooth to capture the essence of the party. The generous owners of Koi also donated three bottles of premium sake and wine for the raffle.  But even better, everyone was a winner: All guests took home a $20 gift certificate!
