Over the last nine months, we have enjoyed some amazing opportunities to connect with Kansas City moms both online and offline around a common denominator:
food being a mom! 😉 Tuesday night was no different as fifty moms (along with some FABULOUS local vendors!) converged on Grünauer for a night of food, drinks, and kid-free fun.
For a unique twist on our third event, we partnered with North American culinary event planner Dishcrawl and the City Moms Blog Network for our first-ever national Moms Night Out with eleven other City Moms blogs from across the country. While a typical Dishcrawl event would take attendees on a food tour around the city, the Mommy Foodie Fair brought the tour to Grünauer with both local and national vendors providing samples for our moms to enjoy all night long.
We were so thankful to have local vendors The Tasteful Olive and Zoomin Market there to introduce our moms to their products and services! (Seriously – we still haven’t gotten over those Italian sodas from The Tasteful Olive or that AMAZING raspberry jalapeno dip from Zoomin Market …) Kansas City photographer Lacey Whitmer of Lacey Whitmer Photo & Design was on hand to capture the fun, as well!
As was the case with our other two events (our first-ever Moms Night Out and Momtinis and Vino), we are so grateful for every opportunity we have to connect with – and get to know – those of you who read Kansas City Moms Blog on a regular basis. We enjoy sharing our collective mom experiences with you – whether here on the blog, across social media or over food and drinks at a favorite local restaurant! Speaking of sharing – a special “thank you” to our contributor Erin Roebuck who shared her fun side with our guests at the foodie-inspired photo booth. Our guests had a great time with this!
As always, our team of contributors went above and beyond to make this night a success. We couldn’t do what we do on a daily basis without these ladies and their willingness to share their gifts with us (and in turn, all of you!).
And finally, a big THANK YOU to our participating brands – from samples to swag – who made this night great!
