FoodBuzz Festival 2011: Check-In & Welcome Reception

Hubby and I made it to San Francisco this afternoon just in time to check in at the Grand Hyatt Hotel.

Then we made our way over to the Welcome Reception.

Lots of food and drinks:

Met some new and old friends: 

Amazing desserts.

We made it home pretty early and were glad to find the toddler the kid peacefully sleeping in his bed!
Looking forward to more fun tomorrow!

Questions: Have you ever been to a blogger festival? Have you ever met fellow bloggers “in real life?”

Be well,


  1. I have never been to a festival but would LOVE to go sometime- they always look like so much fun!!!

  2. I've met NICOLE! :) In fact, her and her hubby are coming for dinner next Friday, and they are coming to our wedding! I've also met Chavra from Food for Laughter. And one day I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to meet you!!

  3. Look like a DELICIOUS evening, Andrea! How nice that you and the hubby and share in the fun together!

  4. Looks like the start to a lovely weekend! Please have a bite (oh alright, and a drink) for me! :D
    Hope you and the hubs continue to enjoy yourselves! Looking forward to more posts on this :)

  5. Hi Andrea! I'm glad you had lots of fun. :D

    :-) Marion

  6. Never been but your pictures are certainly an incentive! Enjoy!

  7. This looks like a great festival.

    I never went to a blogger thing because it's just not happening here. I did meet a fellow blogger once, Amy. We did a race together, it was so much fun.

  8. Dang, I cannot view your pictures from my work computer! I bet the Foodbuzz Festival is awesome though - no doubt. I went to the Healthy Living Summit in Philadelphia in August and it was lots of fun. It was kind of surreal meeting people who you feel like you already know, but they do not know you :P It was a cool experience though - sharing passions with friends

  9. The festival looks like such a good time :)

    I have a few friends that blog and those are the only bloggers I've ever met - but would love to meet others! Have a wonderful day!

  10. I haven't been! I'd love to though. And yes, i've met up with a few bloggers - always enjoyable!

  11. How fun! I have gotten to meet a couple dietitian bloggers at a conference. It was so much fun getting to meet them!
    I love having blogger friends all over.

  12. Jealous you got to meet Nicole (Prevention RD). We went to the same high school but I am (cough, cough) about 15 years older than her! We hope to meet up in December when she comes home for the holidays. :D

    Glad you had fun!

  13. I'm glad you have fun and it's great to see pictures! I've been to BlogHer and Fitbloggin'. I had a great time at both festivals!

    I also wanted to say it was wonderful to meet you in person! You were every bit as lovely and sweet as I imagined! Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to hang out and I hope we can meet again next year!

    BTW I did catch up on everything (squash fries?!?! Great idea) but it's taking like 5 minutes to load a page with my internet so I'm signing off without commenting as usual! :-)

  14. What a fun -- and delicious -- time! I have been lucky to meet quite a few fellow food bloggers in person. They are always such a lively bunch.

  15. I've met several fellow bloggers and have always enjoyed connecting the writer behind the stories.
