Great things come to those who wait…and this is a GREAT thing!
Consider this your official invitation. You were given a Ticket Number either by email or Twitter. KEEP THAT NUMBER HANDY, as you will need it to get in to the Hard Rock. If you want to bring another blogger to the party, that MAY be possible, but they will need their own ticket number in advance, so PLEASE give them my email address ASAP so that I can get them set up. Please PLEASE PLEASE Tweet this message to let me know you got your invitation – and to let the rest of the Blogger World know about the event! Share the love!
“I just got my #RockHer ticket from @doughmesstic! If you are going to “BlogHerFood, you NEED to go to this party!”
Now – here is the information you’ve been waiting for:
RockHer Blogger Bash 2011
Your Hostesses: Susan of Doughmesstic.com, Brandi of BranAppetit.com, and Leslie of TheHungryHousewife.com
Where: The Hard Rock Café Atlanta, walking distance from the Westin Peachtree
When: May 19, 530pm-730pm
What to Expect: Food, and LOTS of it! Carving Stations, Passed Hors D’Oeuvres, Pasta Stations, Dessert – and a bar hosted by Dole to sample their delicious fruits in beverage form! Come HUNGRY!
What else to expect: A CONCERT, starting around 830. Your RockHer Name Badge (given to you upon entry) will serve as your cover charge for the concert, should you decide to stay or come back for it. Performing – Mishka! can you say Reggae?
Something to Consider: The Hard Rock is hosting a food drive the same night, and it would be very kind of you to help out. I know most of us are coming from miles and miles away, so carrying a canned good might not be fun. But a buck or two for their effort instead would be greatly appreciated by their team. This has nothing to do with our party, but let’s show Atlanta how the Food Blogging Community operates!
Now – More goodies to be aware of…
There will be a red carpet and a custom Green Screen, and free Flip-Its (cool souvenir photos) will be yours to keep! Gather your new friends and make some memories! There will also be Large Screen RockBand set ups, as well as other video games to try your hand at – we want you to forget all about work and come to play!
There will be a TON of Giveaways by our gracious sponsors. Not only will every one of you be getting a party favor bag (think chocolate, coupons, vouchers, cookbook, and other goodies!), you’ll also have the opportunity to win the following items (I can’t even list them all, there are over 50!)
- A new KitchenAid Stand Mixer
- A Platinum Edition Keurig (actually, THREE of them!)
- A large piece of Fennel Colored Le Creuset
- Nordicware (6 giveaways here!)
- Wine Baskets
- Autographed Cookbooks
- and much, much more – you’ll be shocked!
In order to save yourself some time the day of the party, go ahead and do this – (yes, we are being greedy!) – FAN the hostesses on Facebook. You can “un-Fan” us after the shindig if you didn’t have any fun, but come on! That’s all we are asking. :0)
You may also want to head back over to the Official RockHer page and start following the sponsors on Twitter and Facebook. That WILL be a requirement to win one of those awesome prizes!
Now – if you have questions, you know where to find me. Shoot me an email!
Can’t wait to meet all of you there! And BRING THOSE SMART PHONES! You’ll want to tweet and Facebook all evening!
So excited to see you!
