As you probably know, especially if you live in the Boston area, Boston has a LOT of food bloggers, and we get together often at a variety of food and drink events. The Boston food blogging community is definitely one of the main reasons I blog. From work opportunities to running buddies to great friends, the food blogging community has brought it all to me, so I was excited when I heard about the Boston Food Bloggers party at M.J. O’Connors. On Wednesday night I made my way downtown on a freezing, windy night. I’ll be honest; I almost didn’t make it. Working from home has a special spell on me once it gets cold. Do I REALLY need to leave the house ever? The answer is obviously yes.
I arrived at the blogger event and checked in, said some hellos and grabbed a whiskey sour. The event was sponsored by Bushmills and Guinness, and there were a variety of specials. I have always been a fan of Bushmills, and after our visit last winter, I like it even more.
As with any blogger event, there was a ton of food including passed appetizers like arancini, stuffed mushrooms, sliders, and other delights, in addition to a table filled with crostini.
At this event I vowed to take more pictures of people than food. After all, it was all about bloggers, and there were so many great ones in the room. I wish I had been able to stay longer to talk to everyone. Here we have Rachel, Boston Food Bloggers founder and hostess of the event.
M.J. O’Connor’s was a great place for a blogger party. Spacious and dimly lit, it has a nice, relaxing vibe, and they were fantastic hosts. They also have very good curry fries (but their sister restaurant, Solas, has the best curry fries in Boston, in my opinion. )
Thanks to Hannah from The Briar Group and Rachel for putting together a great event for all of us Boston bloggers. I can’t wait until the next event!
