I was recently received a press pass to go to Saucy Soiree, a food tasting event of all the best restaurants voted by reader’s in the Saint Louis area. This being my first food based event, I didn’t really know what to expect. I learned some things on how to get the most experience and enjoyment on trying new, exciting, and exotic foods at food tastings.
Sometimes you need to fly solo when going somewhere. A waiting room, the store, an obscure artist’sband concert–all of these situations are awkward when you don’t know anyone. I like to describe myself as a shy extrovert and these situations are often uncomfortable, but can be easily overcome. I am here to share with you the strategies I use to start a conversation, anywhere that I am.
