BlogCrush meetup #2
Last week all of us OC bloggers/tweeters met up at The Veggie Grill at Irvine Spectrum for some food, drinks and socializing without our keyboards and computer screens. It was a lot of fun! And much needed. I got to meet a lot of new people. Everyone was so nice. I think we had over 20 people there. I wish I’d have time to chat with everyone. But that’s what next time is for. It’s almost like we need dance cards with everyone’s blog and name on them so we can check off when we’ve danced, er chatted with them. That we we can make sure we get a chance to talk to everyone even if it takes a few events for that to happen.
I brought Margarita cupcakes for everyone. We met on May 6 so I called them Seis de Mayo cupcakes. They seemed well received! Also well received, The Veggie Grill. They were so gracious to host us and let us take over their patio. I had a Santa Fe Crispy Chickin sandwich which had no chicken in it. But you could have fooled me! The texture and taste was just like chicken. I can honestly say it was delicious! I also had a side of sweetheart fries (which are sweet potato fries) with a side of chipotle ranch. I was hesitant at first to try this place but I will definitely be going back again. It was so good! I wish there was one closer to my home. They don’t sell soft drinks but they do have delicious iced teas and juices. The only thing I didn’t like was their carrot cake. The cake part was ok, the topping was kinda weird. They need to grab a copy of VCTOTW or give me a call to make Vegan cupcakes for them! 😀 Btw, Veggie Grill is also on twitter: @VeggieGrill

The BlogCrush meetups aren’t just a great networking opportunity, they are also a great opportunity to meet gals and guys, yes we had a few guys there, who share common interests or at least understand and to relax a bit, laugh and hear some great stories. I am so grateful for having a twitter account and blog that connected me to all these wonderful people.
