We had a get together of Richmond food bloggers associated with the aggregator Eating Richmond. The venue was perfect, Olio is a European market with great cheeses, cured meats, and outstanding hot dishes, pizza's and cold beer (oh yeah and wine). They had very interesting oils, vinegars and canned/bottled products

The beer selection was great, and at least that night was grab what you want and have the counter open it for you.

I was pleasantly surprised to see one of my favorite foods marinated white anchovies in the display

It was a very interesting and enjoyable night for me, meeting such a diverse, intelligent and pleasant group of people with a shared interest in good food.
