Woohoo! Zagat launched a brand new blog filled with Boston goodies and fun contests! I was one of the 15 lucky folks to win an invite to a private cocktail party at Catalyst by submitting quality reviews on Google Places. This is an up and coming way to spread the word about places you love, feel indifferent about, or hate because the waitress was arguing on the phone while serving your table. I still don’t believe that happened. We also won a free 60-day subscription to Zagat.com, so I’ll be sure to check things out like the street-style eats in Boston or the huge discounts they offer with Savor at pricey restaurants. Seriously, times are rough man.
Here’s a recap of the wonderful event that took place last night, all the fabulous people I met and, of course, the food.
And what a wonderful night it was. Thank you Google Places and Zagat! I had a blast.
Also, a very special thank you to Catalyst and the great service you provided to ensure we all had a fun, carefree time. Your establishment is absolutely beautiful! I’m so happy to hear that you are thinking of hosting wedding receptions. Readers, the open spaced rooms are gorgeous, the ceilings are high, and the walls can be folded to make one grand venue. I think this is a great idea and hope they make it official! (Engaged Lily, are you reading this?)
And seriously, who else grows pineapples inside their restaurant?
I look forward to seeing you again, Catalyst!
You had me at bacon. Congrats girl! Youre doing so well for yourself, and so happy to see a fellow foodie get recognized!
Thank you Tanya, I really appreciate that! You should start a blog for your nails. Those pictures will get you SO many readers.
Good things happen to good people! The photographs give a good sense of the atmosphere and the fun you had… lucky girl!
Thank you, Jim! Given some more time, I’ll be cranking out professional photos like you soon!

Great recap Nancy. Love the photos too. It was great meeting you last night. Hope to run into each again at another Boston Food Blogger event!
Great meeting you too, Sharon! I’m sure we’ll see each other at another event. I’m thinking about organizing a sushi meet up! I’ll foward you the info when I have updates
Great recap of the event. Pictures are so good you want to eat them.
Thank you, Sean! Wish I snagged a picture of the duck breast meat on scallion pancakes. Drats.
It needed a little more mantequilla. Haha
Cocinando con Mantequilla makes everything better, ese!
I think that was my favorite. Hard to decide though. Everything was so good!
You are made of awesome! Good writing and what a beautiful venue.
Thank you, Bean Catalyst looks like a great place to have a party. Ooh lala, very chic and modern.
What a great recap with beautiful pictures! I am now craving the scallops and the butterscotch pudding…
Thanks, Holly! I want to get my hands on one of those little illy espresso cups.
