On a typical day, chances are you’ll find me in our apartment. Truly, I am nearly always home, either working in the kitchen or at my computer. Today was a little different. Scott and I went out to lunch at the Capital Grille to try out their new Plates menu (more on that coming on Thursday). And if that wasn’t enough, then I left him and dashed to meet my friend Tara and catch a Bolt Bus to New York. I felt like quite the cosmopolitan girl for a hot second.
The reason for the trip to New York is that IACP (that’s the International Association of Culinary Professionals) was having a big old cocktail party for members. I joined recently and decided that a networking event was just what I needed. There were a ton of people and while I’m not sure exactly how much networking I did, I had a great time and am so glad I went. It was also SO nice to get a chance to spend some time with Tara. Traveling with a friend makes the time go by so much faster!
