I am so overwhelmed and exhausted and full of good food and wine that a (few) real post(s) will have to wait until I have taken it all in but thought I would share a few pictures from yesterday to keep you going for now!
Saturday dawned bright and sunny:
Lauren from Healthy Delicious (and another Bertolli “On the Menu” blogger) and I were still on east coast time and were up super early. We went for a wonderful walk around the Ferry Building and the Farmer’s market.
Then I met up with Andrea from HighLowFoodDrink for a wonderful breakfast tamale plate from Primavera.
Bertolli Sauces demo!!!!!!
After which I had a BIG beer, served by this lovely gentleman:
Then it was back to the room for a quick change and onto dinner at the Greenleaf Produce Warehouse:
Food and drinks galore!
The awards were handed out at the end of the (amazing) meal. ELTW did not win Best New Blog but hey, after only 6 months blogging, it’s pretty cool to be nominated. So thank to those of you who nominated and voted – I was blown away.
The night ended in the Americano bar of the Hotel Vitale. And so to bed.
Today it’s a brunch sponsored by Nature’s Pride then it’s off to the airport for me 🙁 A true whirlwind visit but WOW.
Check back in through the week for proper posts with more pictures and real descriptions!!!
Thanks for all of your support and well wishes this weekend – I am so lucky to have such great readers 🙂
