Taste of the Nation 2011

Tonight I had the pleasure of attending the Taste of the Nation event with my good friend, Sabrina!

I went to this amazing event last year and had a BLAST eating my way through the evening. Tonight was just as much fun!

I loved this little platter/drink holder that was given out from Groupon – it was perfect for the evening!

I tried my first duck tonight! It was smoky and delish!

The Restaurant Guild had a group that was cutting up ice different ways for different drinks. I tried a massive block of ice with a splash of scotch – I am not a scotch drinker, but it was very good with the ice block!

Sabrina and I took lots of pictures, ate tons of yummy food  and laughed all night long– it was a fabulous girls night out!

My favorite cupcakes were from A Cupcake Wonderland – they will be on Cupcake Wars tomorrow night!

Popcorn covered with bacon fat and spices. Sounds kind of gnarly but it was smoky and pretty tasty.

My new favorite cocktail – Sandia Picante – plymouth gin, watermelon juice, roasted jalapeño, mint simple syrup and fresh lime. It was pretty amazing!

I am going to need to search for this in the liquor store – it was very tasty! I had never heard of Plymouth Gin before, so this was a nice little find.

One of my favorite things of the evening was that there was a photo booth! I love these things!
