The concept for #MKEfoodies grew from series of conversations (both on Twitter and in person) among Milwaukee food bloggers who expressed a desire to establish connections with others who shared their interest in food and love for the Milwaukee dining scene. Once we realized that there was an interest, we set to work forging connections with Milwaukee area restaurants and formulating a plan for regular foodie get-togethers.
The first MKEfoodies gathering took place on December 8, 2010 at Roots Restaurant & Cellar. The event, sponsored by the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board, Outpost Natural Foods, Nueske's, and Milwaukee Food Tours, attracted over 40 area foodies, who got together to network, socialize, and enjoy the best of local food in Milwaukee.
Since that time, MKEfoodies has been featured in the Milwaukee Business Journal, and online at InsideMilwaukee.com.
