The Boston Blogger community is an amazing group of bloggers and local companies who support each other and love to gather around great events, food and people! The weekend was so jam packed with foodie goodness that I am going to break it up into several posts... I HIGHLY suggest you make haste to these places!
First lets do a quick time line of my weekend....
Friday: ship visit in Portsmouth --> drive to Whole Foods in Cambridge for event --> Head to the Fairmont Copley for annual Fancy Fest with friends.
|My office view on last week!|
Sunday: Brunch again with Boston Brunchers at the Harvard Common Press --> Paint Bar Birthday Party in Newtonville.
Yeah, I feel like I need a vacation from my weekend!
First up was a great night at the Whole Foods on River Street in Cambridge. The knowledgeable staff welcomed local bloggers into the store to taste local cheeses, wines, beers, apps and desserts.
|Lots of bloggers in a tiny room....|
There was also a scavenger hunt that I really had fun completing! It was nice to actually find out where things are in the store and some of the programs that Whole Foods is involved with.
|These were in the bag and I may or may not have inhaled this package in 2 days.... THAT GOOD!|
From there I quickly crossed the Charles River back into town to meet up for the 5th Annual Fancy Fest at the Oak Bar!
|Take note of the beer on the tray it comes with a PRETZEL! That is classy!|
It started with maybe 5 of us and this year we had 16 people!!! It is officially a "must attend" event!
|(so I may be wearing boots because I couldn't find my other black heel...welcome to my life!)|
|LV, Roommate and Me|
|Purty ladies all so sparkly!!!|
If you are visiting the city or a regular Bostonian, I highly suggest popping in for a drink. You really get a sense of what Boston was like years ago. The ambiance, staff and cocktails are an experience you will not soon forget.
Up next Brunch at Temple Bar and Brunch at the Harvard Common Press!
