I had the chance to chat with Chef Bret. Such a down to earth guy. It must be the MILK.

And after all those treats and all the shakes, I managed to pull myself away from the trays of goodies to catch up with my foodblogging buddies Eddie Lin of Deep End Dining and Kristy of Best of LA.

The real treat came when I chatted with Javier of Teenage Glutster about his upcoming appearance on Andrew Zimmern. Watch out LA, this kid has a exceptional palate. And out of no where popped out H.C. from LA & OC Foodventures. H.C. is so super sweet. And right before heading out Aubrey from What's to Eat LA arrived. It was good meeting you all!

Congratulations to Chef Bret and thank you for all the udderly delicious treats!

H. C. said...

It was great meeting you too! Thanks for the compliment, maybe all that sugar we've been eating at the event took roots in my personality?

And now, at least that particular PR agency, have a record of how we all really look like! (I think their staff photographer joined in the group shot with your bro).

I like Milk a lot, but my favorite thing there is those salty/sour lima nuts. I'm addicted!

Matthew K. said...

wonderful photos! I wish I could have been there.

Eddie Lin said...

Wandering Chopsticks said...

I totally forgot about this. Then when I remembered later that day, figured it would just be a free milkshake. Man! I missed out!

Jeni said...

One Food Guy...ooh! I will get to it tonight.

Kayoko...Jeni's coming out!

Teenage Glutster...we should all get together for some Hunan fish head!




Pirikara...I'm sure we're going to bump into each other soon enough now that Jeremy's back in town.

Hey anonyMOM...thanks. Hopefully you can meet Eddie...he's so sweet.

H.C. I wonder where all those photos went. I'd love to see us pigging out!

Fuyu...I haven't had their lima nuts...looks like we're gonna have to go together.

Matthew K...I wish more foodbloggers came out. It was such a fun event.

Haha Eddie...I love how you come in all tipsy!

Wandering much more than milkshakes. I'm hoping they'll have more promo events.
