We Are Not Martha 2 Year Blogiversary
This past weekend I got to spend Saturday night with my friend Heather, some fabulous bloggers, and the lovely Susie and Chelsee from We Are Not Martha. WANM celebrated it’s two year anniversary, and these two know how to throw an awesome party.
The site: The Rattlesnake on Boylston Street in Boston
The chef: Brian Poe (@Poes_Kitchen)
The food: Amazing
The cocktails: Scrumptious, and slightly deadly.
I used this opportunity to try some new things that I’d never had before. Everything just looked exceptionally good, making it hard to say no to anything. Heather picked up the first plate for us to share.
I had no problem figuring out the cornbread. It was sweet with a great texture and had green chile, Guadalajara butter and queso fresco. Normally not a huge fan of cornbread, but this was good. The bruschetta looking things are Fig PBJ’s with fig chutney, pine nut butter, and Maytag blue cheese on toasted bread. And last, the mystery item on spoons. This looked like crab to us, and though I’m not a huge fan of shellfish, I’m still in my adventurous phase. I tried it.
Turns out I still don’t really love shellfish. Also turns out that it wasn’t crab, but it was lobster. I did love everything else on the spoon though, which I later found out was grilled avocado and creme fraiche. Grilled avocado needs to be a more regular part of my diet.
Then, things got crazy. Someone said “There’s prociutto wrapped….” and pointed to the bar. I didn’t really listen to the rest. I was all set with prosciutto wrapped anything and got myself some. Turns out? Prosciutto wrapped tuna (that was RARE) and some kind of cheese. Slightly hesitant because I’d never had tuna this way. But (again with this daring side of me) I jumped in. And I am so glad I did. It was heavenly. Tuna was perfect and everything really complimented each other. I wanted 18 more pieces of that immediately, but I behaved.
I didn’t actually get to try the cake, but it looked perfect!
Now, the cocktails were an entirely different story. Let me just say, the Snake Punch there is killer. In more ways than one. Give it a try yourself. Bet you can’t have just one.
And as if all of this wasn’t enough, Sues and Chels put together swag bags for all the guests with some awesome freebies! I already used some of the items in there.
I’ve been to the Rattlesnake before and will absolutely go again. Thanks to the ladies of We Are Not Martha for inviting me to this awesome party! Here’s to many more years of success for you two!
