Blogger Bash invite from BostonFoodBloggers.com:
It’s been awhile since we’ve had a really big blogger bash, n’est-ce pas? Well, hold on to your hats – our friends at M.J. O’Connor’s would like to invite 100 bloggers for some spectacular food, drinks, and gifts!
There was quite a turn out for the event. I arrived only a couple of minutes late to it, and M.J. O’Connor’s was already packed with bloggers!
At the event, the bar offered a bunch of specialty drinks, but I opted for a pumpkin beer (obviously).
I enjoyed a Saranac Pumpkin Ale with a sugar rim. Ooh, yes, it was delicious.
I was psyched to see that M.J. O’Connor’s had Saranac Pumpkin on draft. It was my first time trying it, and I liked it a lot. (FYI: I have a pumpkin beer post in the works with all of my reviews. Hopefully, I’ll finish it today!)
A bunch of passed appetizers were also served at the event: pulled pork sliders, shrimp cocktail, Arancini (fried rice balls), chicken teriyaki skewers, and pizza with mushrooms and mashed potatoes.
I pretty much tried one (or two) of each. The appetizers were your typical bar food””greasy and fried, but still delicious.
The pizza, in particular, was especially awesome. I mean, mashed potatoes on pizza? Yes, please! I also loved the extra sharp cheese on it. Man, I love cheese so much.
Each blogger left the event with a goodie bag. Inside were gift cards to M.J. O’Connor’s and other restaurants in the Briar Group. Sa-weet! What a perfect gift for Boston-area food bloggers.
Thanks for a fun event, BostonFoodBloggers.com and M.J. O’Connor’s!
