BFB Launch Party!

Monday night I went to my first event as an official "Food Blogger" with always fabulous Meg.  We were so excited to check out The Gallows and meet all the Boston Bloggers and man where there plenty of bloggers to meet!  One blogger specifically we met was Michelle who is also new to the Boston blogging scene.  The three of us sipped cocktails, noshed on goodies and introduced ourselves to the group :)  @BostonFoodBloggers (Twitter)

During the event the fantastic staff of the Gallows passed around appetizers of buffalo chicken, poutine (fries, gravy & cheese curds! yum!!!) & mini burgers along with mini pints of Jack d'Or courtesy of Pretty Things. 

awful pic but I was overcome by the ice cream I just ate!
Also at the event was SoCo Creamery from the Berkshires. They were scooping 4 flavors of creamy deliciousness.  The ginger was my favorite with the chocolate espresso as a close second!
SoCo Creamery makes a ginger ice cream that I will dream about!!!!
Meg won a door prize!!!!!
Bacon Caramel Corn?!?!  
I need more information on that incredible caramel corn!  Anyone? Anyone?!!!

Being one of the first bloggers to sign up I was lucky enough to receive this amazing swag bag from Urbanspoon and the other sponsors of the evening.  Lets just say that I have plenty of inspiration now for new posts after trying out some these local eateries!
So many coupons and gift certificates!!!

Oooh ....ahhhhh....

Hello! Island Creek, Union Boston & American Provisions!  I swoon!

I am so happy that I put my stranger danger aside for a night and went out to meet some new and wonderful people! We have already planned an outing for next week to try out 88 Wharf in Milton as part of Milton/Dorchester Restaurant Week!  Cannot wait for that!!!

A huge thank you is owed to all the creators of such a wonderful event! It is an amazing feeling to be part of such a wonderful local community!  I cannot wait for the next event!

I think this weekend I will turn my weekend walk into a shopping trip and explore a place I have been dying to try American Provisions in Southie! Cannot wait to explore and use my gift certificate to find some yummy meats and cheeses!
