The Bloggers’ Summer Social

Last night I went to the London Bloggers’ Meetup Group’s Summer Social at Doggett’s Coat & Badge. The room we had overlooked the Thames, giving us a great view of the City’s skyline, from St Paul’s to The Gherkin, and the boats travelling up and down on the river below. Quite a few of us found ourselves leaning out the windows, snapping the great views. Peter, trusty camera in hand, even snapped the couple glued in sticky embrace on the other side of the road. (We’re pretty sure they didn’t notice.)

Stella Artois were the kind sponsors of the Social, providing us with ample free drinks and special Stella glasses with Stella USB sticks popped inside – just what a blogger needs in this sort of heat: something to drink from and something with memory. Andy Bargery announced the winners of the Stella Artois Star Over London airship trip… and I was one of them! Jason Mical of Edelman Digital then had a chat with the winners about the trip, which is booked for Friday 1st August – this coming Friday. Unfortunately, I will be in France with the in-laws, and I don’t think they’d understand if I cancelled them for an airship. Luckily, Jason is trying to find me an alternative date so I can still have that Indiana Jones moment in an airship above London, after all.

There’s so much more to tell, like the moment when I tried to introduce Paul to his girlfriend, Barbara, or the sharing of free alcohol tips… but I have a plane to catch.

Epicurienne is now officially on holiday. See you all next week!

  1. Congratulations! It sucks that you were not able to collect your prize but it is an ego-booster all the same.
    Your blog parties seem quite entertaining! I especially liked the part about the Stella USB Sticks. i wish they made them for sake too.

    Passez de bonnes vacances Mademoiselle, au soleil, je l’espere!
