Boston Food Bloggers Launch Party
There was a line out the door at The Gallows in Boston's South End on Monday night but the difference was that all of the people were local food bloggers! It was the launch of the Boston Food Bloggers web site, a new place to check out all of the things going on with some of Boston's best food blogs. Being a veteran blogger (that's how we get all those scoops) it was fun to see just how much the blogosphere has grown over the past year or so. In fact, bloggers often get stories that the mainstream media do not. I was joking with people that only two years ago a Boston food blogger event would have been about six people. And many of those veterans were there to meet and mingle with all of the newbies. I am so proud to say that in May of this year we will celebrate our Fourth Anniversary of food blogging! A huge congratulations to Rachel of Fork It Over Boston (@blumie on Twitter) for starting the site and organizing this really fun event.
The Pretty Things Jack D'Or brew (made in Somerville).
One of the hits of the night was the poutine: fries with gravy and cheese curd. Food Bloggers know their comfort food on a cold night.
Peter from Petey Pumpkin deciding on which cheddar cheeseburger to indulge in.
Our old friend Christine Liu of Urbanspoon and Megan of Delicious Dishings.
A delicious double dip cone from SoCo Creamery Ice Cream. We went with the vanilla and dirty chocolate. Extremely creamy and locally made in small batches.
The very nice basket of gourmet goodies and kitchenware we won in the blogger's raffle.
