Edmonton Food Blogger Meet-up!

Thanks to everyone who came out (20 blogs were represented), and to The Common for hosting! You can check out tweets and photos from the evening using the hashtag #yegfoodblogs
________________________________________
A couple years ago Maki and I decided it was time to start planning the next Edmonton food blogger meet up. Here we are in 2014, actually doing it.

Are you a food or drink blogger in this fair city? Do you read your fellow bloggers' blogs or pass by them at events, but haven't actually met them or been able to chat? Now's your chance!

{9910 109 Street}
Tuesday, March 4th
6-9PM

The Common has provided the use of their south room for the evening (thank you, thank you!) so we can easily mingle, and come and go as needed (**). Come for drinks, a snack, dinner - It's your choice - Just make sure you come! And please help us spread the word!

In order to firm up numbers for the restaurant reservation, please let us know if you are able to attend, and if you will be bringing a plus one. We would also like to keep a running list of attendees so that we can get to know you and your blog before we meet you. Here's what we need...

Your name, blog link and number of people attending
in email to
Marianne: loosenyourbeltblog {at} gmail {dot} com AND/OR Maki: oomelement {at} gmail {dot} com

**The Common will be taking orders from the regular food and drink menu, so there will be no shortage of options. You are responsible for paying for your own food and drink, peeps! They will be charging an automatic 18% gratuity on orders. Must be 18+ to attend.

Yay! It will be so fun!

Isabelle said...

Awwww, I'd love to come but my book club has a potluck that night. Hopefully I can attend the next one. Enjoy!

We'll miss you, Isabelle!

If it wasn't my husbands 40th birthday that day I would loved to have joined you! Will hopefully make it to another- do you just do this once a year?

Marianne Stover said...

Elyse - Fair enough! This is the first one that has happened in sometime (at least four years), but we've already been chatting about putting together another one later in 2014 :-)

Always exciting, but sadly I will most likely be unable to attend. I certainly miss having these events.
