Zowie, I can’t believe it’s already December!

Wow, it’s been a whole year since the very first Food Blogger Happy Hour! It all began when Mary (aka Arugula Files) had a fabulous interview in the Washingtonian. She gave my blog a shout-out in the interview, which was totally flattering, because I really liked her blog as well. So I emailed her to tell her so, and to suggest that since we all read and comment on each other’s blogs, we should really put together some kind of meet-up. Jenna (aka ModernDomestic) was our next co-conspirator, and many more followed after that. And thus a mutual admiration society monthly series of fun food blogger get-togethers was born.
This month we’re heading back to where it all began: Poste! Bloggers, readers, commenters, and fans of truffle fries are welcome to join us Wednesday, September 1, starting around 6pm. Jenna and I are your co-hosts this time, and thanks as always to Mary for the keen graphic. See you there!
Bryan, of Food Newsie, left a comment on a recent post offering his extra twine in exchange for some radishes. Sold! I seriously needed twine, and I had a serious surplus of radishes. So we arranged for an exchange of goods at the most recent Food Blogger Happy Hour. Hey, this is DC. Quid pro quo is not exactly a foreign concept. Still, it’s fun to engage in a slightly antiquated concept like bartering. Wonder what else I could trade my produce for…
I used the twine this weekend to truss up some tomato vines and pepper plants. Thanks, Bryan!
I believe this will be our first rooftop happy hour! Wednesday, June 2, Zentan ADC (1155 14th St. NW). Come join us if you are a blogger, reader, or wannabe sake aficionado member of the glitterati. Your hostesses this month are Girl Meets Food and Johnna Knows Food, but do RSVP on the DC Food Bloggers Facebook events page. See you in two weeks! (Update: apparently the rooftop of the hotel that houses Zentan is known as ADC; Zentan is the downstairs version).
