Chaya Brasserie

Chaya Sushi

I don't know why it's taken me a week to talk about the wonderful evening I had a little over a week ago. Well, for those that follow me on Twitter, you know I have had a tough time with my living situation so life has been a little stressful. Besides Raul's birthday party and a little grill action this past weekend I haven't cooked much in the past month, but don't fear...I have certainly been eating. That's why I was particularly excited when Chrystal of The Duo Dishes sent me an email inviting me to happy hour with other LA area food bloggers. Believe it or not, one of the goals on my 101 in 1001 list was to meet at least three other food bloggers. Not only was I able to cross a goal off my list, but I was so excited to meet some people I have gotten to know over the last year plus of food blogging. Even though I was exhausted from the party, I braved the LA heat and headed over to my former neighborhood to Chaya Brasserie.

I saw them the second I walked in and it was so wonderful to put faces to the people behind Diana Takes a Bite, Bread + Butter, South Bay Foodies, Kirby Von Scrumptious, Yo Soy!, Punky Chef, and of course the aforementioned Duo Dishes. Once we settled in and got to chatting, I felt like we had all known each other for years. Maybe it was the wine and frou frou martinis or maybe it was the sushi we were gifted with by the chef. Either way, I didn't really want the night to end, but alas it was a school night so I had to give myself a curfew. Many thanks to Chrystal and Amir for organizing what is hopefully the first of many similar nights.

It must be so much fun to meet other foodbloggers! Unfortunately there don't seem to be a lot living in the netherlands (or maybe I just haven't met them yet...) Looks like a fun and delicious dinner!
