Life and politics from the Sunshine State's best city

St. Pete TweetUp tonight

in The Bay and the 'Burg by
Welcome to the new year! It’s the dead of winter, we’re all still pulling out of our respective holiday hazes and it’s TweetUp time. Shake off the snow, knock off the icicles and join us on Wednesday, the 20th of January. There’s nothing like a room full of social media types to warm the cockles.

Paddy Burke’s Irish Pub, right in the heart of St. Petersburg, has graciously offered to host our first TweetUp of the decade. Never been to Paddy Burke’s? Here’s one local blogger’s take on the place. Sebastian, Pam & Tim are fine folks and ready to serve up a good time.

There will be free appetizers and beer/drink “opportunities” courtesy of Paddy Burke’s and SaintPeteTweets and as always, no charge to our members. We are working up the details – more on this in a followup email.

We start at 6pm with one hour devoted to catching up. At 7pm Danny O’Leary (Irish Jimmy Buffet??) takes the stage.

Please be sure to invite anyone you wish and promote TweetUp in social media. I’ll be looking for your tweets and status updates to RT. Be on the lookout for mine as well. Use the hashtag #sptweet wherever you can.

Paddy Burke’s has WiFi and we will be live tweeting the event. Lastly, please be sure to RSVP.
