Nuffnang’s Blogger Drinks at The General Store & Co.

What happens when you put a roomful of bloggers into a hip new CBD bar? A damn good time, that’s what.

Totally un-posed mingling

Ruki and I are part of the Nuffnang blogger network, which makes sure that the people behind the websites/Twitter/Instagrams are meeting up in person, not just stalking each other online. (We’re guilty of this!) The Nuffnang team, headed by the ever-talented Valissa, is always organising events like bingo at a fancy hotel and cocktail-making classes.

Plus they let bloggers throw their own get-togethers! When we found out, we jumped at the chance to invite our new & old blogger buddies for a night of mingling.

What’s the collective noun for a bunch of bloggers?

We had such a fabulous time at the General Store & Co. launch party in April, thanks to our PR friends at Zilla & Brook, that it was a no-brainer when it came time to pick a venue. It’s a really cool, tucked-away bar (near Queen Vic Market) that no one had yet been to. By the end of the night, several bloggers were commenting that they’d be back. That’s the whole point of helping people discover the hidden sides of Melbourne. We love it!

Some of the best websites in Melbourne (hyperbole, us?) were represented:

Special happy hour prices from The General Store & Co. were a hit, with everyone remarking how amazing East 9th Brewing Co.’s Fog City Red Sangria is (particularly for $5). We devoured the pizza that Nuffnang ordered for us (thanks!).

Business cards were exchanged, tweets were re-tweeted, and promises made to hang out soon. Thanks to everyone who came — we hope you had as much fun as we did!
