Get Your Food On: Food Blogger Happy Hour at Poste – 6:00pm, Sept. 2

Out of the internet, into the bar.

Our world is getting too virtual. Facebook status updates, blog comments, and retweets do not a friendship make. Anyone who’s run into an old friend from high school will know this – there’s nothing like an in-person meeting to make you realize that paying attention to someone’s status updates doesn’t mean that you know them.

No, I predict the future lies in face-to-face contact. Meeting people in the eye. Gossiping at the physical (rather than the virtual) water cooler.

This is why I am absolutely thrilled to be co-hosting a food blogger happy hour on Wednesday, September 2nd, along with Gradually Greener and The Arugula Files. Rumor has it that Capital Spice and Beets and Bonbons will be attending. If you want to join in the fun, please leave a comment over at the Arugula Files, so she can get a head count, or let me know.

I am even more excited that it will held at Poste Brasserie, which regular readers will remember as “the restaurant that will roast you an entire pig.” Not that I intend to get a roasted pig – I just have a high respect for establishments that will roast entire animals at your bidding. To me, roasted animals means that a restaurant really takes its food seriously.

So come. Exchange recipes face-to face. Share your tips on where to get the best olive oil. Get your food on.
