HoCoBoCo meetup

Yep, that's our name...HoCoBoCo...Howard County Books and Cooks :)

Is it nerdy that I get home from activities and then blog about them? Well, I guess I have a little "nerd" in me so I'm not going to be concerned. So, my meetup was today at Aida Bistro(www.aidabistro.com) and Wine Bar...and...it was great. The food and wine was amazing AND so was the company. My main course was "Grilled Kobe Beef Culotte Finished with Mushroon & Herb Demi, Served over a Bleu Cheese Risotto Cake." For not really knowing what any of that means, it was really good. We discussed the book and also had a gift exchange. I received a really nice(and it's red) corkscrew. Pretty cool!
After the bistro we went to a bar called Nottingham's, which is really funny because I was the only one that had ever been there before and I've only lived here for 2 months. HA! We played shuffle board and chatted. It's a really nice group of gals and I'm definitely planning to continue going. For the January meetup we are doing a "Anti-New Years Resolution" Cooking Party. :)
In my chats with these girls, the online meetup thing seems to be the "cool" thing to do. Many of these ladies are part of many meetup groups and that is how they socialize, which is cool. If I was in Nebraska right now, I'd probably think it was pretty silly and/or hokie but it was really enjoyable. You'd think living in such a big place, it would be so easy to meet people but I think it makes it harder because you don't even know where to start. These meetups are a good place to start if you're interested in meeting people.
That's all I know for now. Tomorrow will be yet another quiet Sunday since Mike is working. :(

Glad you had a good time--and you know if I was out there I think I would be right there with you (I long ago accepted the little "nerd" I have in me) ;o)

I found a crafter/scrapbooker meetup in Lincoln and joined the group. I can't wait 'til they have their first meeting. I am looking forward to learning new techniques with crafts and scrapbooking.
