Another year, another IFBC (International Food Bloggers Conference) in the books. It was my second go at the conference and I couldn’t wait to get back to Seattle for the fun, flavors, food and flowing wine with friends. One of the most exciting items on the agenda for me this go ’round, was that I actually made it onto the roster for the Sur la Table excursion. Last year I ended up very (VERY) low on the LONG waiting list, so I was ecstatic when I was registered in time. The Sur la Table excursion with KitchenAid at #IFBC is everything a food blogger loves. Food, gadgets, fun. It’s a wonderful way to spend an afternoon in Seattle.
I was just in Raleigh, NC this past week for Internet Summit ’13 and what a week it was. I was happy to reconnect with some friends I made at MozCon in July, in addition to making new connections and learning from some really dynamic people. The conference didn’t disappoint. Neither did Raleigh. It rocked.
I had never been to Raleigh before and didn’t know what to expect on the Foodie front, but I was beyond pleasantly surprised. In fact, I was pleasantly wowed. I headed into town a couple of days early so I’d have some time to explore and check out the local fare.
When I arrived on Saturday, we headed to Tobacco Road to watch FSU trample Wake Forest (Go Noles!). I had the chance to try a local to NC beer, Weeping Willow Wit, it was light and refreshing and it hit the spot after my afternoon flight.
I had a great time catching up with my friend Maria who lives locally. We chatted and made plans for dinner that evening. She is also a fabulous foodie, so I knew she’d pick a great place. She sure did!
