A Thought For Food » where ideas are brought to simmer

Preview: The Boys’ Club

Us boys have a special bond, particularly because there are just so few male bloggers out there.  This connection, as well as our mutual love for all things booze, is where the idea for The Boys’ Club stemmed from.  For those of you who missed the memo (obviously you’ve been living under a rock), The Boys’ Club is a new blog that will feature cocktail recipes and stories pertaining to our personal connection to alcoholic beverages.

While we’ve all played a huge role in the creation of this new blog, I must give credit to Russell of Chasing Delicious, who is the one who approached the crew a number of months ago about organizing this (he also designed this awesome logo).  And what a ride it’s been.  The four contributors – Russell, Ken (Hungry Rabbit), Mike (Verses From My Kitchen) and I – have been Skyping, Facebook Messaging, G-Chatting (basically anything but the telephone) constantly, planning the launch of our site, which we think is going to be a lot fun.

Here’s the deal: The Boys’ Club launches on Tuesday, September 4th (that’s this coming Tuesday).  We’ll be starting off with a week of fantastic recipes and tales from our contributors.  Prepare yourself… each drink looks so delightful, I’m pretty certain you’re going to want to rush out and make a batch of every one of them.

Our goal is to get the word out about The Boys’ Club, so please tell all of your friends about it.  Also, feel free to join (and share) our Facebook pages and follow us on Twitter.

    We will have to talk about the Boys Club when we meet in Oregon October 10th! Aside from the wine blog since 2008 (which I’ve had to take more than too many breaks from), I tried to start a Spirits, Cocktails and Beer site pourmeanother.net – and it was going great until a family illness. Inspiration to kickstart it again abounds! Cheers!ReplyCancel

  • […] Then as I learned about blogging and all the free, delicious recipes on the internet, I still noticed the lack of a male presence. So many food bloggers are women, and the male bloggers who actually do blog about food are aware of this. One of the more prominent male food bloggers I follow, Brian at A Thought for Food, realized this to the point that he and other male food bloggers decided to go in on a shared project entitled “The Boys Club”, a blog about alcoholic beverages and the writers’ personal experiences with these drinks. “Us boys have a special bond, particularly because there are just so few male bloggers out there.” – Brian, A Thought for Food […]ReplyCancel
