I can’t believe it’s been over a week since 32 very different (yet very rowdy) bloggers gathered at Al Porto to celebrate the fabulousness of #HullBloggers – eating, drinking, chatting and networking, for me that’s a pretty great way to spend an afternoon!
Confession…I didn’t take a single picture! So I borrowed some from the #HBAlPorto hashtag (which was a top ten trend in the UK during the event dontcha know, go us!)
Our bespoke #HullBloggers fruity cocktail and the delicious canapé menu, which was designed by the talented Caroline.
