Out of the blue, I received an email from a fellow blogger, Kate of Art Vein Vessel. Her email proposed an idea of possibly meeting up with one another since she would be in my neck of the woods. Recently, Kate was invited to participate in a show at a gallery in
After working out the details regarding when and where, we decided that the best place to take them would be our favorite restaurant here in Boone, Cha Da Thai. Upon being seated, I saw this contraption sitting on a nearby table and was very curious as to what it was. After many sideways glances with no apparent clues, we thought best to just ask our server. She informed us that it was called a Hot Pot. We inspected the menu and after repeating many times that I wanted to step outside of my pad thai box, we all ended up getting the same thing……Pad Thai! I can’t help it, it’s so yummy!! After some deliberation, we also decided to get our own Hot Pot with Tom Kha soup. The restaurant was a good pick, especially since we all got to try something new and most importantly, everything was delicious. The soup was to die for, seriously, my mouth still waters when I think about it!
In retrospect, it seems silly to think that I was nervous about meeting the two of them and whether or not we would find things to keep the conversation going. We had plenty to talk about and ended up spending 2 hours in the restaurant! It was interesting being able to share blogging with someone else who also blogs; non-bloggers don’t quite understand us. Do they?! In any event, I am glad that we were afforded the opportunity to meet Kate and Jerzy in person and I hope that someday I will get to meet even more of my blogging buddies. So, who’s next?!
