Julie & Julia: Boston Food Blog Meet-Up

Julie and Julia Boston Meet-Up

Friday night ten lovely ladies met at the Boston Common theater to see the fabulous Julie and Julia movie together. If I may speak for the group I feel it’s safe to say we had a fabulous time even though we did end up stuck in the third row from the screen. Thankfully Gayle soothed our annoyance at having to sit so close with a bottle of clandestine wine that we not so covertly shared. It seems you just can’t take food bloggers anywhere…

I absolutely want to try to have another get together soon so if you’re local and interested in joining us please let me know in the comments. In the meantime, you should visit my companions’ mouthwatering blogs. Perhaps you’ll find a new favorite or two?

PS: Thank you Elina for having the foresight to ask a passing stranger to snap a picture.

Erin,
I absolutely love the picture. Thanks for sharing all the blogs. I will check them all out. I saw the movie and enjoyed it. There were some funny lines too.

I still haven’t gone to see it yet, but I’m a little jealous of your wine sharing and movie watchin’!

Glad you all had so much fun together!

Looks like you had so much fun! I can’t wait to see the movie. And I would love to know about future get-togethers, even though I’m not a ‘food’ blogger. :)

I went to see J&J on Friday – along with 500 Days of Summer and The Ugly Truth…movie marathon day!!

To put it bluntly, I LOOOOOOOVED IT!!!!! In fact, I may go back and make the hubby see it with me. I think he might enjoy it, too.

Dear Lord, I just love Julia Child even more after the movie and my reading of My Life in France.

Glad you girls had fun! Wish I’d had wine with me…I had gross popcorn that stayed with me through all three movies. Blah. ;)

Yay! This was a good time, but next time, we’ll definitely need to incorporate real food (not just pretty pictures of food on screen) ;)

I had a great time – LOVED the movie! We should definitely get together again… maybe get drinks or dinner so we can get to know each other? :)

Hi! I just read your blog entry about J & J. Such a great movie! I’m a foodie (will hopefully have a blog soon!) as well and would love to know about your future get-togethers. :)

I’m sorry I missed it! But definitely sign me up for a get together! And I STILL need to see the movie! I’m hoping I can drag my husband this week during our vacation…
