We’re looking forward to the Oscars on Sunday! And always a treat to hear the buzz about movies that revolve around food–any favorites on your list? Whether you’re attending an Oscar viewing party at a local restaurant (some of the menus we’ve seen look amazing!) or hosting your own, we’re hoping these bites inspire you to join in on the fun and dine with the stars. Be sure to share your own Oscar bites on Forkly, too!
We’re on a roll now so we don’t see any point in stopping this week! We just had two great Forkly events in Denver and Washington D.C.–and now we’re coming to visit you, Boston!
We’ll be meeting at Russell House Tavern (map) at 5 pm on Monday August 6 to enjoy Forkly talk, small plates and drinks– you can get a glimpse of the menu from Russell House Taverns’ Chef Michael Scelfo’s tastes on Forkly!
For those who can’t make it but want to meet with our @JSWAuer –or have some food writers, organizations, or chefs who must meet with her while she’s in town, be in touch! Always happy to make time for folks excited to become part of the Forkly community. Can email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
And a special thanks to Chef Alli Sosna, Hank’s Oyster Bar, and all that attended the DC Happy Hour on Tuesday–it was great to meet all of you and raise money for a good cause! Keep on donating and spreading the word about her fantastic project.
That’s all for now…see you in Boston!
