A Night Out With Manitoba Food Bloggers

Exciting things are happening around Winnipeg.  The Manitoba Food Bloggers have had their first gathering and are planning more.  Now please excuse the lateness of this post.  We actually had our night out February 29th  at Elements.  It was a fabulous night of food, drink, a seminar on photography with the fabulous Ian Mcausland,  and friendship. Many of us met for the first time in person.  Our name tags also had our twitter handles and out website names on them. It was so neat to see these and say "Oh hi! I read your blog all the time!".  There were door prizes, goody bags, and donations to Siloam Mission.

It was such a fantastic opportunity to chat with others who have similar interests.....FOOD!  There wasn't just bloggers there. We had restaurateurs and business owners, representatives from different producer groups, Half Pints Brewery was there with free samples, as was the Tipsy Thief

I had my camera with me but I didn't take too many photos. I wanted to enjoy the evening and not worry about photos.  I did manage to click a couple of pics but I spent the evening enjoying the company and learning to not rely so much on my flash!

I am looking forward to the next Manitoba Food Bloggers event and can't wait for future plans with this fabulous group of people!  A huge thank you to everyone involved in making this event happen!

Until next time, stay warm and eat well!


  1. It was indeed a lovely evening, Lori, and I, too, am looking forward to the next one.

    I'm always motivated when there's good food, drink and fellowship involved. And maybe next time ... there might even be some chocolate!

  2. There could be a lot of quality discussion when people meet up at a party and they have a lot to gulp down, i.e., food and drink.Missed out on this one but will surely make it to the next Manitoba food bloggers event.

  3. Cool beaners, Lori. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Hi Lori, I just discovered your post! I was there at the Manitoba bloggers Meet and Greet too. I even posted about it. Wasn't it lovely? I can't wait for the next one. : )
