Addie Broyles JUST posted on her blog the news that the much anticipated (at least by me) Austin360 Food and Wine Blogger Bash has been announced. Here is what she had to say:

A week from today, local and national food and wine bloggers will get a chance to eat, drink, mingle and celebrate the vibrant food scene in Central Texas at the first ever Austin360 Food and Wine Blogger Bash, sponsored by Whole Foods Market and the Go Texan program of the Texas Department of Agriculture.

Here’s the flier from the Web site:

Due to space limitations, this is a private party by invitation only. If you are a local food blogger or hard-core foodie and you didn’t get an invitation, enter your name here to win tickets. If you did get an invitation, please make sure you RSVP as soon as possible.

As soon as the guest list is full, it’s full. Your name must be on the list to get in.

Damn! Miz Broyles ain’t messin’ around!

My friend Rachel, who is a reporter at the Wall Street Journal and a mom blogger, shared with me that there will be a Pie off in Austin on Saturday, March 21 from 2-6:30 p.m. Rachel very sweetly reads my blog so she knows I can’t get enough of delicious pie. Some highlights:
