Calling All Local Food and Drink Bloggers!

I’ve started up a Meetup.com group for local bloggers/writers and we’re getting together next week.  The definition for “local” is going to be pretty loose.  So if you’re in Ann Arbor and surrounding areas, that’s definitely local.  Southeast Michigan – sure!  Visiting Ann Arbor – why not?  Breathing?  OK, only if you’re hot.

I was going to call the group “Let’s all get some drinks and steal each other’s ideas.” 

Ann Arbor

So far, the following awesome bloggers are planning on attending: 

The Winegetter

Meg Goes Nom Nom

A2 Gastro Boy

The Daily Sampler

Welcome to Flavor Country

The Wandering Glutton

Last Bite

Joan Herzog

…and maybe a few others.

Here are 10 reasons why you should go:

1 – You want to meet a great group of like-minded people.

2 – You just want to sample The Last Word’s bar menu and killer cocktails, heck with meeting other bloggers.

3 – You disagree with my review of Kuroshio and want to re-arrange my face for it.

4 – Your mom wants you to get out of the house once in a while.

5 – You got your tax refund and those 14 bucks are burning a hole in your pocket.

6 – Find out if Meg really call her husband “The Huz” in real life.

7 – Because you’re still despondent about Michigan losing the title game.

8 – We can talk about you really despise (insert blog name here)’s work and can’t understand why they are so popular.

9  – What else you going to do on a Wednesday?

10 – You’re dying to know if I really look like my Gravatar.  Or do I really look like this:

I don't know everything about the world of food and wine, but I'm not going to let a small detail like that stop me from blogging about it.

    I’m breathing, but too far from Ann Arbor! Sounds like a lot of fun!

    I don’t know if I qualify as a blogger exactly, but I would like to attend.

    I would enjoy going to it, but the third Wednesday of each month is dedicated to a dinner club that I belong to for the last twenty years. I would still like to hear about future dates.
    Thank you, and I hope you all enjoy a good time.

    Great idea! I would love to crash your party, but there is a challenge of a distance… Enjoy!

        Stamford, Connecticut. I’m sure I have bloggers around (and I met some, just need to write the post : ) ), but I’m not sure I have the energy to start a meetup …

          Well, if u ever make it to the area (not sure if that’s on ANYONE’S radar) we’ll have a special gathering.

          The meetup thing is actually very easy to set-up. For now its a small grp so the actual organizing of the event is simple. If it gets huge then if hve to delegate it. And it would mean Ann Arbor had wayyy too many food bloggers.

          I would love to – never being to Michigan other than may be a stop over in Detroit airport… Thanks!

    For handbags: the extra compact the greater, any simple handbag is going to do, but a quilted handbag could be the greatest. louis vuitton bags sale http://louisvuittonbagsforsale.webs.com%2

    Hi just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the images aren’t loading correctly. I’m not sure why but I think its
    a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show the same results.
