In our constant pursuit of changing up our Elite event program and keeping our Manchester Yelpers second guessing our next crazy move, we decided to take over juice and smoothie bar 'The Fruit Exchange' – turning it into a caribbean summer party with rum tastings, cocktails, beer, West Indian hotdogs and live music.
On a warm and muggy Thursday evening, 35 Yelpers came down and made this one of the most relaxed evenings we've ever organised. The guys from Fruit Exchange really nailed it in terms of hospitality and showing off their excellent venue and drinks, Dogs n Dough supplied everyone with a tasty 'dog with pina colada relish and Dan from Wray and Nephew taught everyone all about rum before we finished many a bottle all washed down in lovely fruit cocktails. It was also great to have local musician Nicky McCallan join us to play some great chilled out tunes.
What a great night at The Fruit Exchange and I'm sure we'll all be back soon!
