Signpost Launch Party

Where can you uncover what night the MFA or ICA has free admission, when & where to score $1.99 tacos, learn details on Joanne Chang's upcoming Flour book signing and get informed on the city's latest holiday shopping deals, all in one place?! A one stop shop for all the going ons at any given time, Signpost is an online community that uncovers local deals and popular happenings in your city. Tuesday night the launch party of Signpost Boston was held at the Green Briar Irish Pub in Brighton Center. Guests were treated to complimentary Magners Cider, tasty appetizers and Mix Bakery Cupcakes. I arrived with Lizzy around 7:15 and we were greeted by the always smiling and friendly Elizabeth, who is Signpost Boston's Community Manager and writes the blog Free Food Boston. Lizzy and I headed for the bar where we ended up chatting with the super nice Magners rep before seeking out the appetizer table.
I munched on crispy bite size chicken nuggets,
meatballs in marinara sauce with shaved parmesan cheese,
mashed potato balls, (these were my favorite)
and buffalo chicken tender bites.
Also consumed were unpictured spanakopita and pigs-in-a-blanket. Throughout the night it was great to mingle with the likes of Miss Yunks, Katie, Jen, Christine, Rachel and Michelle PC. I was also delighted to put familiar names and faces to real people, meeting for the first time Fiona from a Boston Food Diary, Shannon from Image Unlimited Communications, as well as Meesh Z and Jacki Mo the lovely ladies behind Just Add Cheese.
Hot appetizers weren't the only thing I munched on all night. I made sure to get my fill of Mix Bakery Cupcakes.
The mini size made it easy to consume one of each. Vanilla with buttercream frosting, Chocolate also with buttercream frosting,
And my favorite - the pumpkin with cream cheese frosting.
I consumed Magners and mingled with blog friends until about 9pm. I also scored a Magners hat, SWAG is always appreciated, especially when it involves one of my favorite beverages!Thanks to the Signpost Community for hosting a fabulous launch party. Here's to uncovering the best deals in Boston!
