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!
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!
Scrap your plans and come join us at Appalachian Brewing Company in Harrisburg for food, drink, and merriment this Wednesday beginning at 7pm for our monthly Central PA Tweetup! It may (or may not) pour like a bastard, so we may (or may not) be inside somewhere. Either way we’ll be on second floor. If the pile of laptops and iPhones doesn’t give our group away, just ask a bartender where the Tweetup is. They love us.
CORRECTION: Thursday 7/16/09 at 7pm
This month we’re bumping things back one day. Instead of meeting on the third Wednesday like we normally do, we’re going to be having our July Tweetup on Thursday, July 16th. We’ll still be meeting at 7pm, and we’ll still be getting together on the deck, and I’ll still be raving over how incredibly awesome the Dom Blonde is. ABC has a private function that will consume the entire deck on Wednesday, and Thursday is supposed to be sunnier, so I figured we’ll be best served by stepping back one day. Come on out, soak up some sun & suds, and meet your fellow Tweeps & bloggers.
