This past week’s tweetup was HUGE! Just check the hash and you’ll see the tip of the iceberg. There were lots of new faces, most of the regulars, and enough discussion of Linda Thompson’s taco tweetup (I don’t remember how that got started) to last at least a month. Normally the winter tweetups are much smaller than the summer ones, so once the weather breaks we may actually consume the entire deck!
At last week’s Tweetup, where we finally found the idea table arrangement, someone suggested making the get-togethers a little more regular. We already have “the” Harrisburg tweetup on the third Wednesday of every month. But there’s also #hbgugh (a lunch gathering) every Monday. Jersey Mike suggested a weekly breakfast tweetup around 7am at rotating restaurants, and someone else suggested a bar crawl (love it).
Any thoughts? Ideas? I can’t make #hbgugh due to my work schedule, but I could make a breakfast gathering or two. And the idea of a bar crawl is just great with no further explanation required.
We’re getting together this Wednesday (always the third Wednesday) at 7pm for our monthly Central PA Tweetup. Since there were no takers on last week’s “choice of venue” survey, we’re meeting at the Abbey Bar (upstairs at Appalachian Brewing Company on Cameron Street in Harrisburg). We’ll talk a little more about locale then — and hopefully they’ve got their new menu / chef straightened out now.
See you then!
This month’s Central PA Tweetup is this coming Wednesday (11/18), just more than a week before Thanksgiving. We’re getting together at The Abbey Bar, which is on the second floor of Appalachian Brewing Company in Harrisburg. Things get started around 7pm and wrap up when we’re all stuffed and happy.
Everyone with a blog or active social media account living in or around Central PA is welcome to attend! Our wintertime Tweetups usually have a much smaller crowd than the warm-weather tweetups, so if you’ve wanted to come but have been overwhelmed at the prospect of meeting 30+ new faces at once, now is the perfect time to come out. ABC is a smoke-free environment with free WiFi, good food, and great drafts, so now you’ve REALLY got no excuse not to show.
See you there!
You know the drill: Third Wednesday of every month, Abbey Bar (upstairs at Appalachian Brewing Company in Harrisburg), 7pm till ???. This month the Tweetup falls on the 21st. If you’ve got a Twitter account, blog, or pretty much any online personal whatsoever, drop by and meet your social-media neighbors! We’re screaming towards the two-year mark (!) of our monthly gatherings, and the cold weather only makes it better. Barring a sudden outburst of 80-degree weather, we’ll be inside this time around. You can identify us by our laptop- and/or iPhone-to-person ratio of 5:1. If that doesn’t work, just ask an upstairs bartender where the Tweetup is.
I don’t think I’ve mentioned this before, but our Twitter hashtag is #hbgtweetup. Please use it any time you tweet about the event so we can get a decent idea of how many are coming.
See you there!
