As I’ve mentioned before, there is so much to love about Memphis! But just this weekend I discovered a new thing I love about Memphis: there is a great little community of bloggers here! I really hadn’t come across many Memphis blogs until I found Laura’s blog (Walking In Memphis In High Heels) just a few weeks ago. She got me connected with the Memphis blogger group and they just so happened to be having a meet up right after I joined the group!
We met at Local Gastropub in midtown. It was crazy busy at 7pm on Saturday evening, but we had great service!
Laura so sweetly ordered a couple of appetizers for all of us to share! This was the calamari sitting right in front of my face. I may have eaten a ridiculous amount of this fried goodness.
I ordered the Local Burger with bacon and swiss which was absolutely delicious! Even the bun was delicious. It really might be one of the best burgers I’ve had in Memphis. At $14, it was also the priciest burger I’ve had in Memphis, but worth every wonderful bite.
I know we had to look absolutely hilarious to the other people around us. Every time a new plate of food arrived, everyone pulled out their cameras/phones and started snapping away. It cracked me up. But I loved it. Being around kindred spirits was fun. Plus, there was no awkward moment where you were trying to figure out whether or not this was an appropriate occasion for a group shot… of COURSE it was!
Jaime (Mommy On A Mission) even made this GORGEOUS cake for all of us!
I was so excited to actually meet Laura in person! She is absolutely the sweetest!
