A Boston Food Diary and Groupon- A Heavenly Partnership!

As I wrote my last post I realized that there was one very large piece of my life lately that I haven't properly introduced to you all here!  Last August I was asked to start writing for a new section of the king of "deal" websites- Groupon.  They launched a local Guide component to their website, and I have been contributing there as an expert on the food and drinks that the great city of Boston has to offer.  

I have been LOVING my partnership with them.  Their local guides focus on food, fashion and fun around this great city and the writers that they have compiled to delve into each of these are fantastic voices bring color and excitement to each post.  

Definitely check out the section I get to be a part of here, and please let me know if you have any suggestions for future articles!

A taste of what I've been covering for them thus far:

Boston Center for Adult Education Launches New “R & D” Restaurant Series

It's been a little quiet around here lately and for that I deeply apologize- my day time career and my wine studies have kept me rather busy which has caused a bit of a delay in updates here.  However, I wanted to break the silence to let you all know about a very cool series coming to our own Boston Center for Adult Education.

The Center, known for giving the adults of Boston a place to expand their knowledge, pick up a new hobby, or learn a craft is launching, dates to be determined, an R & D Series, partnering with the local chefs of Boston.  So what does this mean?  This will literally be a Research and Development series, wherein chefs and restaurateurs who are in the process of opening new restaurants will have a place to showcase their "in development" recipes on a live, non partial audience... you!  

The idea is that the new restaurant will have an opportunity to show off their concepts, and the diners (read, again, you) will get to give your feedback, and, of course, have some bragging rights around your food obsessed friends.  Think a much cooler, futuristic Yelp...on steroids.  

We don't yet have dates, but it sounds like some will be announced soon- so stay alert people!

Potential Impact of Covid-19?

As we sift through all of the data and information out there- I found this to be a helpful and interesting resource.  This was provided...
