Google Express Boston Dinner + Promo Code

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

Hi, friends!

Last night, I had the pleasure of attending a wonderful dinner hosted by Google Express, a new, same-day delivery service that is making its debut around the country with Boston being one of its first markets. Oh, Google, what will you think of next? It sounds like an amazing service and one that I would use all the time. I mean, hello, same-day delivery? One less errand to run? Sign me up!


The event was held at Serafina, a modern Italian restaurant in downtown Boston that I’ve only heard good things about, so I was really looking forward to dining there.


Our group of about 20 mom bloggers enjoyed a fun cocktail hour before dinner. It was nice to kick back and enjoy a glass of wine while getting to know some new (and old!) blog friends.



I also enjoyed some tasty passed appetizers.


Both the meatballs and fried artichokes were phenomenal!


A little while later, we were all invited to sit down for dinner.


The table was gorgeous.


The flowers = perfection.


After a few words from Amber Fillerup Clark of Barefoot Blonde, who co-hosted the event (her blog is adorable), it was time to eat.

We enjoyed a delicious three-course meal that everyone raved about. I swear, each dish just got better and better.

Google_Express_dinnerAfter dinner, we each received a special gift from Google Express to try out their service for free. (I’m seriously counting down the days until it comes to my area!)


I also received a special $25 promo code to share with you guys, so be sure to check out Google Express to see what it’s all about. Even if it’s not in your area yet, keep a look out for new delivery locations since they’re expanding and adding many new zip codes this year.


Please note this code is capped at the first 2,500 shoppers to redeem it. Applies only to first purchase and not to delivery fees or in-app purchases. Valid until 8/2/15. For complete terms and conditions, visit 



Question of the Day

If you could have something delivered to your house RIGHT NOW, what would it be?

  1. My favorite Greek restuarant. They have the best jalapeño hummus and chicken veggie wraps OR anything from True Foods Kitchen as long as it includes their sweet potato hash & kale salad. Can you tell I’m hungry?

  2. Would you happen to have the blog names of each person present – you could list and link to? There are a few faces that look familiar but for the life of me I can’t remember names….I blame old age…lol!

  3. Love this! I work at the Google HQ, and it’s fun to spot one of our events on your blog! My husband and I use Google Express ALL THE TIME, and it seriously saves us so many errands! It saves money too, since I no longer wander the aisles of Target making impulse buys! 😉

  4. Very interesting. I have not heard of this service yet. I will have to see what it is all about and if it is in our area. If I could have one thing delivered right now, it would be a new pair of running shoes. I need them desperately, but keep putting off the purchase when running errands each weekend.

  5. Hi Tina – just letting you know the restaurant is spelled ‘Serafina,’ not Serapina like you have in the link 🙂 I’ve been wanting to try it, looks delicious!

  6. cool! Oh I would order dog meds (tick & Heartworm) that I keep forgetting to order!!
    Lame, but necessary!
