John Chow Blogger Dinner
The last night of BlogWorld Expo, we went out with a bang and celebrated the first “John Chow Blogger Dinner“. I talked to Nate Whitehill before the end of BlogWorld and he mentioned their was going to be a dinner get together, so I was pretty excited. Once BlogWorld ended we all met up at Benihanna Japanese Steak House in the Hilton Hotel. John Chow, Reena and I were the first to arrive. Once everyone arrived we had an awesome power house of bloggers.
The Benihanna was lucky enough to have the following bloggers at the restaurant that night: John Chow, Egontron, Darrin Carter, Gary Lee, Ms. Danielle, Mad Whips, Neil Patel, Nate Whitehill and his Unique Blog Design entourage. Shoemoney was planning to attend, but was only able to stop by and say hello. It was really awesome to be able to pull together 15 great bloggers and people for this event.
In addition to a show of all our food being made and put together, one of the major highlights from the dinner was John Chow messing with the camera lady. At first everyone at our table was taking out their cameras and taking pictures of the food, spoofing John Chow’s “Fine Dining” posts. So then Darin Carter realized we all had Canon Cameras and we were joking how it was the “Blogger’s Choice” for camera. Benihanna’s official camera lady came over to our table and asked if we would like to get our picture taken. John Chow then asked what type of camera it was, she smiled and happily said “Nikon”. Then John yells “Nikon! Go Away!“… haha, it was the funniest thing ever and we never saw the lady again all night!
It was a great dinner and I thank John again for pulling everything together. I will definitely be looking forward to attending John’s next Blogger Dinner!
