FoodBuzz Festival 2010 • Farewell Brunch • People Pics

November 11, 2010 by Joan Nova in Blogging, Events | 18 Comments

This is the last post in the FoodBuzz Festival 2010 series. I took hundreds of photos, met lots of interesting, smart and talented people, and I consumed a gazillion calories! Here’s a peek at the farewell brunch which was sponsored by Nature’s Pride in a private room in the Sir Francis Drake Hotel — and some people shots.

Next year…I propose to stop eating and drinking for at least a half hour at each event and take more people and/or cleverly-themed, non-food photographs. I may even be toting a new camera.

Still to come: I ATE San Francisco (the foods and places I ate in outside the Festival). Could you believe there’s more?


I missed Peter G, Jenn + Roberto, Peter + Christy, Lori Lynn and Mary (Giz) with whom I shared a good time at the first Festival. But it was great to spend time with friends like Norma, Angela, Greg and Val – and to make quite a few new ones (too many to single out).

  1. It was such a foodfest Joan. I wish i could have made it to the brunch, sure would have beaten a scone at the airport at 8:30 AM, but hey maybe I didn’t need the extra calories:D

  2. Peter says:

    Thanks for the photo report, I will try (again) to go next year.

    If I go, I will try/sample everything and just wear buffet pants!
