BlogHer Food '13: Behind the Scenes as We Plan for Austin

BlogHer Original Post

BlogHer Food '13 is still eight months away, but the BlogHer Events Team is already hard at work, planning for our best BlogHer Food event yet! The newest member of our team, Melinna, and I were on the road last week in Austin, visiting our host hotel, and focusing on preparations for our off-site excursion and closing party.

One of the great parts about working in events is the chance to get out of the office. And in the case of BlogHer Food, that means exploring the food culture of Austin. We hit up some landmark venues, food trailers, and the 6th St scene. Does my job rock or what? Although the epic barbecue was wasted on a vegetarian like me, have no fear meat-eaters, Melinna was there to taste test that for you! Without giving too much away (expect some updates very soon!), here is a sneak peak at our trip:
