I love blogging for a lot of reasons.
Sometimes, I have the opportunity to try new products before they hit the shelves.
Other times, I have the opportunity to attend events and meet lots of new friends.
But my favorite reason by far is, meeting new friends WHILE trying out a new product/service/restaurant/menu!
Last weekend I was invited to attend a blogger brunch held at Bar 10 in the Westin Copley Hotel.
Bar 10 recently launched their new brunch menu and invited 15 nearby bloggers to test it out. Needless to say, I was excited to be one of them!
I was excited about attending this event because brunch is one of those things that I love, but I rarely have. I almost always lean towards the breakfast side of things, but what can I say, I like options!
Speaking of options, check out the fabulous menu!
Before we chose our meal option from the menu, the staff sent out a complimentary champagne shot with berries and pineapple.
It’s almost like they read my mind! Bubbly cocktails are definitely my favorite kind. Pair it up with some fresh fruit and you’ve got yourself a match made in heaven. It was a perfect way to kick-start the day.
I had a hard time choosing what to order for my main meal, so I decided to “create my own omelette”.
My omelette was prepared with egg whites, cheese, tomatoes, ham, spinach and was paired with a side of potato hash.
It totally hit the spot, and was the perfect mid-day meal. It left me feeling full, but not overly stuffed. I am also happy that I stuck with a healthy option. The mini belgium waffles were totally calling my name, but I had a feeling I’d feel sluggish afterwards. All about planning people!
The staff at Bar 10 even sent out a few extra dishes that no one had ordered for us to sample. Among the choices was the burger topped with a poached egg and scrambled eggs with a side of steak.
Unfortunately I don’t eat red meat, so I did not sample these two plates, but it was still super nice of them to do! Plus I was so full, I’m not sure I had any room left for anything else anyway!
Everything we ate was truly delicious and the staff were some of the most hospitable people I’ve met. I’m glad I got to spend time with some old and new friends, while enjoying a fantastic meal.
Thanks again Bar 10!
