Book Your Hotel Room NOW for #BlogHerFood16!

Two weeks ago, our Events and Social Media teams gathered in Austin, Texas to scout the host site for #BlogHerFood16.

Austin’s Best Breweries

We went to Austin, Texas for 4th of July this year. Brew and food trip, and a little house hunting. We made a spreadsheet before visiting Austin of the best breweries, their address, website, tasting room and tour schedule and hours, and other notes.

Bats and Brats! 6th BlogHer Food '13 Friday Night Excursion!

It's estimated that there are 750,000 to 1.5 million bats at the height of "bat season." Nope, I didn't know there was a bat season either! But that's when we'll be in Austin for BlogHer Food '13. Around sunset, these bats take off to go get their food (insects, yum!) and with all of them in flight, it looks like a black cloud emerging from the bridge. ...more

BlogHer Food ’13: The Ticket Transfer Do-Si-Do

Why the do-si-do? Well, the fact that BlogHer Food ’13 is less than two months away kind of makes me want to clap my hands and swing my partner ‘round and ‘round. The speakers! The sessions! The FOOD! The Austin weirdness of it all! You say you’ve already purchased a ticket and can no longer attend? We’re sorry we’ll miss you! ...more
