When I moved to Seattle 3 years ago, I didn’t know anyone.
Not one single person.
It was just me and my husband.
I was one of those people who would talk to people at the bus stop and make conversation with people on the street. I really wanted to meet people. That’s when I started blogging.
I started Frantic Foodie so I would have something to do, so I could discover Seattle, perhaps I could have conversations via my blog (and wouldn’t have to scare people on the street by trying to talk to them).
Last week was my first Foodportunity
event. I have been doing events for the last few years but this one was huge. More than 300 people all in one place. All foodies. All drinking, eating and networking.
The pics in this post were taken by Nate from FarSightedImages.com
. He was one of the two extremely talented photographers that took pictures at the event. I will be posting more of Nate’s pictures as well as pictures by the other photographer, Jackie
Just wanted to give you a little taste, more to come.

Now I have a little giveaway. I have a $25 gift certificate for brunch at Rover’s
which will get you a two-course brunch or a discount on any brunch items.
Tell me what you would do with this Foodportunity
? The deadline for the contest is Wednesday (July 29th).
