Boston Food Blogger Julie and Julia Meet-Up

in Boston / Massachusetts, Contests / Giveaways

Julie and Julia: The MovieI feel like I’ve been waiting for this movie to open forever at this point. I just loved reading My Life in France as well as Julie Powell’s thoroughly enjoyable Julie and Julia novel and I simply can’t wait until I have the opportunity to see Meryl Streep and Amy Adams bring both women to life on the screen.

To that end I thought it might be fun if some of the like-minded (aka food obsessed) bloggers in the Boston area got together to watch the film. So far Maggie, Carol, and Tina have expressed interest in going. Would anyone else like to join us? Let me know in the comments. At the end of the week I’ll contact those of you who would like to go and we’ll iron out all of the details.

PS: If you’re a fan of Erin Cooks on Facebook you have the opportunity to win a copy of Julie and Julia. Click here for details.

If I wasn’t going out of town for a week I would love to join in. I’m excited for the movie to open as well although I have to admit, I actually didn’t like the book Julie & Julia at all, which disapointed me because I usually always love food writing. I think it was because I wanted to hear more about the food and less about the press she was getting and other shenanigans. The movie looks like it will be quite good though and infuse a little more about Julia Child’s life.

Let me know the details, and I might join you ladies as well! Although I have a few other friends who might want to tag along too…I have yet to read the book, although it is my book club’s pick for this month!

How I wish I were back in Boston so I could come, too! And to make things worse, the movie isn’t even opening here in the UK until September… K x
