I decided to organise a little bloggers get together at Peter Pizzeria in Leicester. There isn't a lot of blogger events in the East Midlands so I took it upon myself to create an event that could potentially be an annual meet up. I'm a huge fan of Peter Pizzeria in Loughborough (who doesn't love fresh pizza!) so decided we should go to the new bigger Peter Pizzeria in Leicester and give it the ultimate blogger test!
It's a quirky venue that opened in February full of exciting designs and objects everywhere you look. If you love nostalgia in the form of film classics, cartoons and general childhood memorabilia, teamed with innovative interiors, then this is the perfect venue especially for us snappy happy bloggers! Plus... who doesn't like pizza?!
I'd invited local bloggers and some local companies to come along for the chance to network, establish new business relationships, make new friendships and of course see what Peter Pizzeria Leicester was all about!
I'll give you a bit of a round up of Peter Pizzeria and the night we had but I'm fully intending to head back and do a full tap dancing review. Even though I have a events background I've only dealt with public sector conferences, so as you can imagine this was a big difference! It was nerve wracking because as we all know us bloggers always have a strong opinion... and will voice it too!
We had an introduction from the social media boys from Peter Pizzeria explaining how authentically Italian Peter is, just by them chatting my tummy was rumbling! We all dived into the tasty anti pastis to begin alongside the melonade and lemonade before the freshly made pizzas arrived for us all to try. Honestly I love this pizza so much it's weird because even though I know pizza is a 'treat', I feel better knowing I'm having good quality pizza... does that make sense?
I had such great feedback after the event that I think people enjoyed themselves. I'd really like to host again and maybe even do a Christmas get together! Anyways a huge thank you to Peter Pizzeria Leicester for having us, and a big thank you to everyone who came along!
