Philly Blogger Meet Up

Last night I did something out of the ordinary for me...I met up with a bunch of strangers for dinner. We all did have something in common, blogging, or reading blogs!

We met for dinner at Garces Trading Company, Iron Chef Jose Garces' gourmet market/cafe.

The interior was really awesome, and the place is BYO, but also has a section where you can purchase wine to enjoy with your meal.

Sabrina, from RhodeyGirl Tests, and Leslie, from And Her Little Dog Too, put together the meet up.
It was really great meeting a bunch of awesome ladies and enjoy their company.

I didn't get to talk to everyone in the group, so hopefully we all meet up again soon!

Kind of nerve wracking going to dinner with a bunch of strangers, but it was great and I had a blast!

Kelly said...

It looked like a good time. I got pretty sick yesterday afternoon and decided not to go - but will definitely go to the next - and yes, Eric, you would have stuck out but it could have been awesome being the only guy.

Fun meet-up! Wish I could have been there, too. Glad you went with the vino... the first couple meet-ups I went to, no one drank anything! It was a little nerveracking for me at first, but I got used to it :-)
