Foodbuzz Festival, Part 1

My swag bag and super cool name tag

The weekend before last I attended the 3rd Annual Foodbuzz Blogging Festival.  I am fortunate that this conference is held in San Francisco and even luckier that I live a short train ride from San Francisco.  So off I went to the big city to eat some good food, meet some cool people and learn some stuff.  
The Grand Hyatt
I checked in my hotel, The Grand Hyatt and honestly all I did was enjoy the solitude of my big room.
Don't get me wrong. I love my kids, but quiet is a nice thing.  I should have taken a picture of the room of the view of the UGG store next door, but I neglected to do so.  You'll just have to take me at my word that the accommodations were nice.  And boy that UGG store sure was nice to look at as I slowly lowered the power blinds in the room, never to open them again for the rest of my stay.

The first night there was a cocktail reception, followed by another cocktail reception, an Foodbuzz Blogger Awards ceremony, and dessert. The food was lovely, the alcohol was FREE and the people were great fun.  But I have no major complaint.  If you want people to listen to an awards ceremony, you need to give them a place to sit and actively encourage them to shut up.  This did not happen and as a result I have NO idea who won anything.  The petulant selfish part of personality (or the dominate part some would say) really does not care as I was not nominated, but still it would have been nice to hear something.  There are some more photos below of some of the delicious food and cocktails served that evening.
