I LOVE when I get together with the #NorthIowaBloggers! Everytime we get together, attend a function, or plan something it’s always a different conglomeration of people and it’s always a good time! This past Monday was no different. Thanks to Val of Corn, Beans, Pigs, & Kids (even though she ended up not being able to make it) a group of us gathered at the Mason City, Iowa Applebee’s location for a #BeesMeetup. We warned Applebees via social media that we were coming for them and boy were they ready for us. They were ready not only on their social media platforms, but also the staff at the restaurant was ready for us! Thankfully (not sure if it was for us or them) we had an inside hook-up with Loni of Lifestyles of the Pantsless. Loni is a part-time waitress at Applebees and
warned prepped the staff for our arrival. The manager of the Mason City location was also kind enough to treat us to 9
different types of appetizers from their menu! (Yes, there is only a few more and by ordering we ended up tasting every single one of them!) The staff was attentive, efficient, courteous, and very tolerable of our group with our chit chat, Tweeting, Facebooking, Instagramming, and requests for pictures!
