What Actually Happens At A Bloggers Event

Top things that happen at a ‘food bloggers event’:

  1. Pre event Twitter takes priority over workScreen Shot 2016-04-12 at 21.49.15
  2. Getting to the event, you see a dozen of people wearing nice bags and hats staring into their City Mappers as they wander around the location.
  3. You will recognise people at the event but don’t know their actual name, only by their twitter handle and photo.
  4. Due to point 3, conversation starts up by ” O you’re Fizzy Fuzzy Cupcake Fairy..!”
  5. Your foodie/drinkie world expands as you are introduced to some of the best, new food and drink products around.

This is all happened and more when Tabl hosted an event at Clerkenwell.

It was Wednesday night, Farrah and I were spiralling around to our City Mapper dial to find Clerkenwell entrance. It was obvious when we found it…a room buzzing of nice hats and bags with a table of gin to greet.

It was Brighton Gin, a gin that has long to be on my bucket list- first gin to come from Brighton ever. True to the home town, a piece of rock was placed inside.  Colour like the beach, taste as refreshing as a man in a suit on the Brighton pier. Loved it so much, I had two. #NoShame

Now to explain the venue, it’s a gift, clothes shop as well as a restaurant/bar. This made a slight ‘bloggers’ maze, the idea you moved from room to room not knowing what will come next…with a few deliveries of course.

The most important  thing that happens at food bloggers event?

A group of people gather on a Wednesday meeting as they all share a love of food. Half the people in the room have created something quite special, the other want to talk about it.

It works hand in hand really.
