What would make a person attend a tweet-up that is a two hour plane ride away? I mean, I don’t even always make it to the local tweet ups. But this particular tweet up gives me the chance to hang out with some of my favorite bloggers in the whole world.
Wouldn’t you like a chance to hang out too? I love meeting blogging friends in real life!!
If you are anywhere near Atlanta, this is a party you don’t want to miss. But even if you aren’t near Atlanta, you can still participate in the fun on Twitter. Tricia, of Once a Month Mom, definitely KNOWS how to throw a party!!
The purpose of this event is to bring people together that participate in once a month cooking days, especially those that do their cooking using Once A Month Mom menus. The evening’s events will include live food demonstrations, product demonstrations, product testing, appetizers, meet and greets, and much more.
There will be several live food demonstrations done by Once A Month Mom author, Tricia Callahan and Sue Becker of The Bread Beckers. In addition, there will be opportunities to meet others who do once a month cooking and potentially a cooking partner if you are looking for one. There will be also be products such as appliances and cooking equipment for participants to test out during their time at the event. Smoothies and appetizers will be served as participants mix and mingle.
In addition, we will be live stream videoing the event so that readers not in the immediate area can participate and get the information and resources provided during this event. We will also have a designated person live Tweeting the event through Twitter. We have capacity for up to 100 individuals to be present at the site location. We anticipate hundreds of participants via Twitter on the night of the event as well.
Here are the event deets:

The Bread Beckers is more than a Kitchen Store. It is everything you need to make fresh bread at home grinding your own fresh wheat flour and more! They sell grain mills, mixers, grains, beans, baking supplies and ingredients, bake ware, bulk food co-ops/buying clubs, and cooking classes. What is more perfect for an OAMM function than a store that sells in BULK!!! They also have a BEAUTIFUL kitchen/classroom that we will be using for the event. You are going to be so excited when you see this venue! They are located in Woodstock, Georgia.
