It's the first weekend of November, which means that it's time for the premier foodie event of the year, the Foodbuzz Blogger Festival! From now until Sunday, it's safe to say that I will not be hungry. The events kick off tonight with a Welcome Reception and Awards Dinner at the Terra Gallery. The menu for this evening features 10 appetizers over cocktail hour, 2 small plates, 12 dinner selections, and 9 desserts. Talk about the paradox of choice!
Thanks to very generous sponsorships, I walked away from the check-in table with a fabulous gift bag...
Everything from Godiva coffees, chocolates, coupons, an OXO veggie peeler, Cascade, Duncan Hines new Decadent Chocolate cake mix, the new Federated Media "DIY Cocktails" book, and a Lollihop mini. What's Lollihop? This hot new SF startup is signing up subscribers for monthly snackboxes of select organic surprises. Essentially they combine two of my favorites: getting mail and healthy snacks!
I've already broken into the Godiva chocolates and the little madecasse milk chocolate square. Seems like the perfect prelude to an incredible weekend! Looking forward to meeting many new bloggers and reconnecting with friends from 2009 and 2010.
