Tuesday night I attended the OBA (Ohio Blogging Association) February Cleveland Blogger meetup. This was my second time attending one of the group’s monthly events, and my first time blogging about it. As a wine lover myself, this was an event not to be missed!
This month’s theme was a wine tasting event at Wine & Design, a local business offering a selection of fine wines, wine tastings and interior decorating services. Wine & Design is located in Cleveland, right near Tremont, which is an artsy little community just west of the city limits. This was actually my first time visiting Tremont since moving here. I’ll be sure to be coming back again though!
There we met with local blogger and wine connoisseur, Tammy, better known as Miss WineOH.
For a nominal fee we enjoyed a pairing of three white wines and three red wines, along with light appetizers of hummus, cheese, dried meats, popcorn and crackers. Tammy discussed each of the wines after each pour, as about two dozen local bloggers enjoyed the food and beverages along with conversation on blogging.
The OBA is FREE to join and open to any Ohio-based bloggers. The Cleveland group regularly has monthly events and sometimes non-traditional events, such as the November blog swap I took part in. You can stay in the loop on event announcements by reading Poise in Parma (written by the OBA Cleveland Chapter President Alicia), by checking the OBA website, and also the OBA Facebook and Twitter pages.
Disclosure: I am not compensated for event posts, unless otherwise stated. All opinions and thoughts here are my own. I paid a fee to enjoy wine and food samples at this event.
