Boston Food Blogger Launch Party

We interrupt our regularly scheduled blog posts on culinary school to bring you a brief recap of the Boston Flood Bloggers Launch Party that was held last night at The Gallow's in the South End.


It was absolutely amazing to see so many foodie folks that braved the bitterly cold temperatures to talk about food.  While trays of cheeseburgers (a review on them to follow, as soon as I can get back to give them a real try) and Poutine (gravy drenched French fries with cheese curds sprinkled on top) floated past, over 150 (!!!) bloggers chatted, laughed and of course, ate.  It was half reunion and half, "Oh my god it's so nice to finally meet you!"

Megan, Renee, Lara, Fiona and Pam
Tonight was a solid reminder of how lucky we are to be living in such a terrific city that has such a warm and welcoming foodie scene.  Very special thanks for Rachael of Fork It Over, Boston! for organizing and Christine, of Urbanspoon, for helping with the sponsorship of such a fabulous event.

Hey Katie - Wasn't last night a total blast? So glad you and your best 100+ friends (new & old) could come warm Boston up on a chilly Monday evening! Totally amazing homecoming-reunion-mothership energy going around the room. Can't wait to see your burger report (which I'm convinced is the best two words in the English language). Cheers, Christine
