OC Blogger Bash: What A Fantastic Party!


The OC Blogger Bash was an amazing event! There were hundreds of Southern California Bloggers in attendance (most of whom had donned period costumes), a rockin’ band played great music, the bartenders poured signature Orange Martini cocktails, waiters served up delicious appetizers, there were food stations to feed even the pickiest eater, Classic Cars were set up near a screen showing movies from 1961 as if it were an old-fashioned drive-in, there was a photo booth set up for instant fun, and to top it all off, a staggering list of prizes (nearly $60,000 worth) were given away during the course of the evening!

Thanks to Anaheim/Orange County Visitor and Convention Bureau for hosting a thoroughly enjoyable party, and to All The Generous Sponsors for donating such wonderful prizes!
