cleveland blogger brain trust

Thursday, February 26, 2009

my friend blogging jason was cordial enough to decide to invite a few cool kids of the cleveland blogging community over to his place for some food, fun, wine and geeking out over our social media obsession.

there wasn't any live blogging or twittering but there was a
twitpic showing the group with a few of our ten bottles of wine that were polished off. apparently not only are we smart and witty but we are winos.

everyone brought a dish to share, except myself who shared three bottles of wine. and i was seriously impressed with the culinary creations. who knew that blogging jason, narm and matt could cook? (kelly and jose i already knew you guys could, ha.)

for example did you know that you can make curry chicken puffs AND curry chicken rice crispy treats? yes, i said curry chicken rice crispy treats. snap, crackle and pop probably didn't know what they were getting themselves into with that one. but damn did they look amazing.

as did the fun cleveland blogger group.

matt from addicted to vinyl, jason from blogging jason, jose from sensory overload, narm from white-collar redneck, and the lovely kelly (the better half of jose) also from sensory overload.

with the cleveland blogger brain trust that was gathered we had lots to talk about, lots of ideas, and lots of cleveland love.

there also may have been a drunken domain name purchase via my blackberry at the end of the night. but i'm going to go ahead and hold that one in my back pocket to share with you all at a later date.

oh the suspense.

  2. First off, holy crap your page takes a long time to load!!

    Secondly, I'm so sorry I missed you guys last night. Stupid flu is putting a huge damper on my social life.

  9. All that talk about wine and now I want some! Even if it does give me throbbing headaches.

  10. WOW that is a bad picture of me - then again I am pretty sure I am responsible for two of those bottles of wine by myself so I have good reason.

    And I can NOT cook - Alexa is just being kind and complimenting the fact that no one became physically ill from my stuffed peppers.

  17. Blogging meetups sound like so much fun. And when it involves food and wine only good things can happen! =)

  18. People still cook? They know food comes in cans, right? Some dude named "Boyardee" - a French gent, methinks - has already cooked it for you.

  19. chicken rice krispie treats? I think I may start a petition, for this recipe to be featured on the blog. Um, and it starts with me.

  20. fyi - Although it may (or may not) sound intriguing to others, those rice krispie treats did not have chicken in them!! haha :)

    They're Curried Rice Krispie Squares w/ Sunflower Seeds (and super easy to make):
