FoodBuzz 2011 Blogger Festival

San Francisco Ferry Building

Today I wanted to share with you just a handful of notes I made to myself this past weekend while I attended the FoodBuzz 3rd Annual Blogger Festival in San Francisco:

  • When going on a short trip there really is no reason to pack every single electronic device you own, your iPhone will do. (Being a computer geek is no excuse.)
  • When traveling, make sure you have a well thought out lunch plan before arriving at your destination, otherwise you’ll find yourself eating popcorn from the mini-bar.
  • When hosting a party, don’t skimp on tables and chairs.
  • Remember to visit San Francisco more often.
  • Variety is indeed the spice of life.
  • Don’t leave your DSLR in your hotel room the next time you attend one of Tyler Florence’s live cooking demos.
  • Play hooky on the last day of a conference more often.

    I LOVED this post Josie – a refreshing change from the usual “this is what we did” conference recaps :) I wish SF was not so far away (and so $$ to get to) – I would have loved to hang out with you again (and play hookey!)

    I absolutely LOVE that first picture!

    It was great to meet you this weekend! It looks like you had a great time exploring San Fran that last day – so sad I had to fly out early!

    Likewise Laura. Let me just say there was a minuscle downside to staying in town a little extra time… I didn’t get home early enough to unwind and went right to work the next day. :)

    This post made me missed you more since we did play hooky together last year. We definite need to get together for more ‘variety’

    Missed you too Ken! Didn’t even bother going to Dim Sum Sunday morning without you…

    Haha! Love the tips – especially the lugging every electronic device everywhere you go advice – I am the queen of that and never end up using it all!

    Looks like you had an amazing time! Can’t wait to see you and hear about it – over some Red Velvet Layer Cake… of the liquid variety. :)
