Bloggers Night Out

Last night a bunch of us local bloggers got together at a local restaurant called The Electric Cheetah. Kelly, Katie and I chose the place because it serves local grassfed beef and uses lots of other local ingredients when in season! Definitely a “foodie” place to eat.

Anyways….our fabulous waitress braved the cold to take a picture of all of us outside.

(L to R Heather, Stacey, Jodi, Jill,Me, Kelly, Wendy, and Katie)

Katie brought snacks to test out on us

We snacked on some breads and spreads

And then we did what all bloggers do

We took pictures of everything.

And talked like crazy

(Jill must have said something just delightful at this point!)

(and we totally wracked her brain since she was just fresh off of Blissdom – sorry Jill!)

(oh- and check out the herbs growing on the counter!)

(so serious)

When we weren’t busy talking blogging and stats and plugins and bugging Jill about Blissdom, us foodies kind of took over a bit and talked a lot about, what else…food.

And before I end this post, I need to say how much I loved this little restaurant. I ended up getting the burger (I know…I’m not supposed to be having white bread right now on my 30 day no sugar challenge. But come one – grassfed beef. Nuff said) and was so very glad I did. I only wish I lived closer as I could see myself and my husband visiting more often if we did. The staff did a fabulous job of putting up with us. I think the waitress had to come back like 3 times to see if we were ready to order yet. The first two times we’d gotten so busy talking we forgot to look at the menu! For a table of 8, we were served our food rather quickly and it all came perfectly done. I don’t think I heard one of us say they didn’t like what they ordered.

They had a great atmosphere and it all felt so relaxed. You could tell the staff liked working there and that the other customers were enjoying their food as well. And I love the fact that this is a local restaurant! Nothing better than supporting a local place that serves local food.

The only thing I did do was leave a soy brochure.

Because they fry their hand cut fries in soybean oil.

Ick.

Though it did not stop me from trying out Wendy’s sweet potato fries or ordering some to go for my husband. {shhhh – don’t tell!}

Hopefully we can do this again ladies – it was fun!!
