Area food bloggers will be heading to Philly this Saturday for TECHmunch, a one-day conference for us to help improve our craft and how to get our words out better. A couple of our friends are part of the proceedings: Wendy ‘La Phemme Phoodie’ Kirby helped to organize the whole event, and Robin ‘SJ Locavore’ Shreeves is one of the guest speakers. Lisa and I will be working the registration table, and we’re looking forward to meeting all of the wonderful area food writers that will be attending.
This weekend is also the first annual Vintage South Jersey Fall Wine and Beer Festival at Campbell’s Field along the Camden Waterfront. The two-day festival is featuring South Jersey wines and brews from 1PM to 6PM. Tickets are $25 per person.
Also this weekend you have: the Fall Harvest Wine Dinner at Atlantic City Country Club in Northfield Friday night at 7PM, the Fall Family Style Oyster and Ham Dinner at the Port Norris Fire Company this Sunday, and the beginning of Tropicana’s Restaurant Week, which runs through November 1.
If you care to venture out of South Jersey this weekend…
