Philly Foodie Meet-up!

Let me just say, Philadelphia is pretty lucky to have such an amazing looking group of food bloggers.  Everyone last night was even prettier in person than they look on their blog, and just as nice.  Thanks again to Sabrina and Leslie for organizing it!  I rushed home from work and squeezed in a quick 30 min workout with my Yogalosophy DVD before I had to start getting ready.

I felt like I was getting ready for a date, haha, I showered, shaved my legs, straightened my hair, um don’t tell my bf that I’m pretty sure I haven’t done those things for his visits in a while.  Oh wait he reads this doesn’t he… oh well.  My drive into the city was relatively painless and traffic free, which was surprising since the Flyers were playing a home playoff game last night, but hey whatever, worked for me.

The dinner was held at Garces Trading Comapny, located at 1111 Locust St.

One side of the menu features a selection of various cheese and accompanying garnishes, and the other ala cart items to order as your main course.

I think we all took over 30 minutes to look at the menu and decide what to order, haha.  First things first though, a few glasses of delicious red wine.

Here’s one of the tables of pretty girls.  From left to right, April and Stephanie, Melissa and Dasha, Leslie and Sabrina, Lisa and Me, and Emily at the end.  I wish I could have had the opportunity to talk to the other table more, next time!  After we ordered, some delicious bread and olive oil were delivered to our table.

Sabrina ordered these delicious baby asparagus bites, and I managed to snag one.  Normally I don’t like artichokes unless they are also accompanied by spinach and cheese and in dip form, but these were good.

For my meal, I ordered the Margarita Pizza, and it was amazing.  I typically like a thinner crust, and this was almost like my flat-bread pizza that I make at home!

Um, I ate every bite, haha.  It was that good.  Sadly, after dinner I realized it was almost 10 pm, and I still had a 30 min drive back to suburbia ahead of me, and had to leave :(.  I’m pretty sure we all could have sat and talked for hours more!

Such a fun night, and I even missed Lost for these ladies, so you know it was important!  I did however, just catch up on last nights Glee and LOVED the Madonna episode.  I kind of want to watch again, but I’m afraid I might get up and start dancing like a fool in my office.  That is not appropriate for 9 am.

Happy Wednesday everyone, we’re halfway through the week!
