Boston Blogtoberfest Recap

Recently I hit up Boston Blogtoberfest '09 .. the name alone explains why I was stoked about attending. Obvi.

It was hosted by Jenny of All Eyes on Jenny and it was at 28 Degrees in Boston.

There were yummy appetizers and a pretty decently priced list of cocktails.

....which were beautifully captured, above, by Pam of Cave Cibum

It was fun to run into some friends I have seen in awhile, as well as new ones I'd just met recently!

And a few who missed the JQ Paparazzi... BeccaEmrlds, Elizabeth & John. Plus Kristen Haley who I friended via twitter after the event!

I didn't win the raffle, but what a GREAT get-together!! But no worries, the next day I booked my appointment for Hawt on Yelp, an amazing deal going on with Boston spas, if you book an appointment between Nov 2-8 and mention 'Hawt on Yelp' you can get some awesome deals for 50% off! I'm getting a much needed facial since my current 'issue' with skin care. Cannot. wait.

Plus I'm pretty sure Hawt on Yelp is going on in many other cities so definately look it up!

Hi! I'm a Boston blogger, and never hear of these events and would love to meet other bloggers in the area. Do you have any suggestions on how to go about doing that? That sounded like a fun even!

Maxie- you know you have an all access pass to any boston blogger event ever :)

Lexi- welcome!! Definitely just start following boston bloggers on twitter, cos that's where you'll see people mentioning upcoming events. Don't be shy either! Join in any conversations on twitter aka the easiest way to make blogger BFFs :) i'm @julieq on twitter btw

Looks like so much fun!!! I actually went to this 2 years ago I think? I didn't know a soul and it was in the basement of the Pour House. Actually, I believe it was my first blogger meet-up. We've come a long way!!


Alicia said...

Great to see you as always!!!

emrlds said...
