Silly me didn't even think to apply for a press pass until it was too late, so I was a very sad girl indeed when I realized that many of my blogger brethren were in like flynn. Oh well, at least I got to hit the opening part at Loews on Thursday.

As a supreme food dork, I was excited to see plenty of familiar chef and food writer faces at the party. I finally got to meet peeps like Kat from CNN's Eatocracy and the AJC's John Kessler, plus I got some schmooze time with Atlanta's own Ford Fry and Shaun Doty. Alas, my valiant efforts to score a conversation with Charleston wunderkind, Sean Brock, were thwarted, and with them my hopes of a personal invite to dine at McCrady's or Husk (a girl can dream, right?)

With my last bit of stomach space, I enjoyed a scoop of High Road's bourbon burnt sugar ice cram with crushed "Hog-Nut" crunch (bacony-goodness, natch!)

As fun as this party was, I'm sure the rest of the events were pretty amazing. Mental note to get my butt in gear next year and get a pass!
