An NC Triangle Elite Brew-ha-ha!

Mitch's Bar & Grille in Durham proved the perfect spot for a Halloween happy hour — or a happy hour any other day! With a chill atmosphere, cheap drinks, and personable service, it's hard to go wrong with this watering hole. Wednesday evening, Yelp Elites made their way to Ninth Street, and we were graced with an appearance by Mitt Romney, Big Bird, Spiderman, and many others…

A check-in on Yelp's mobile app rewarded them with a trick-or-treat tote bag to take advantage of the Candy Bar, piled high with chocolate, chewies, and the obligatory candy corn. In the kitchen, Mitch himself was whipping up pan after pan of tasty tots and fresh wings in a variety of housemade hot sauces (from the fiery mango habanero to a twisty blueberry BBQ, and everything in between).

Happy hour wouldn't be happy without the right beverage. And local distributor Harris Inc. made sure we were well-quaffed with seasonal supplies! Hannah R "loves pumpkin beers, so was very happy" to see Brooklyn's Post Road and Blue Point's Pumpkin on hand, while Romin B enjoyed the "nice wheat beer from Shock Top."

Before bar crawling down Ninth, some yelpers completed their look with the help of Character Paints, who dexterously added the perfect details. Then, there was one thing left to do — award the best dressed! Mitt Romney and his Binder of Women as well as Zombie Wonder Woman took the spoils… which came in the form of 5 pound, 12,000-calorie gummie bears. Congrats!

See the other cast of characters who attended, in the photo album (thanks, Phil G, for snapping!). And hear them tell their story in the reviews! Huge thanks to Larry, Mitch, Rosie, and Cassandra for making this a heck of a holiday!


Until next time!
