The Busy December Wordsmoker Social Calendar
December 5, 2010 in WORDSMOKER MEETUP
As you all know, after fall and spring, winter is among the busiest social seasons of the year. That’s why we’re bringing you two Wordsmoker events in the very near future. Please do not mistake this short notice as any sort of a slight; it all just came together in the past few days.
To begin with, we have the first ever South Florida Wordsmoker Meet-Up:
THURSDAY, DECEMBER 9th @ 7:30 p.m.
1904-A Hollywood Boulevard
Hollywood, FL 33020
I don’t actually know how many Wordsmokers we have living in the South Florida area, so we may have to open this up to lurkers as well. If you aren’t local and haven’t already purchased your plane, train or bus ticket, travel may be quite costly. You’ll probably want to sell something valuable and come anyway. Why not stay overnight and enjoy our nearly tarless beaches and watch our talent-loaded, mediocre basketball team. Don’t worry, I’ve been to PRL. It’s not nearly as “artsy” as the link says that it is.
We also have the fourth of fifth Wordsmoker meet-up in New York. I’ve only been to one other, but I also wasn’t around in the early days.
NEW YORK CITY
FRIDAY, DECEMBER 17th @ Not sure of the time but most likely around 7:30 or 8:00 p.m.
Somewhere in New York (Manhattan or Brooklyn probably)
Yes, I bought a ticket the other day to fly up and see my dear friends Gianna and Logan, but also to meet up with as many Wordsmokers as possible. I don’t have an idea for a location yet, so I’m hoping that some of you may be able to help me out and also attend. I will be staying somewhere near Williamsburg, but like many of you, I know how to get around in NY. (Actually I just have the HopStop app for my phone. Hopefully it’s still a viable entity.) When I was up there in January for my first Wordsmoker meet-up, there was a lot of talk of posting updates and writing up a piece after the event and so forth. Well, that never happened, so if this event seems as though it will be well attended, I will bring my laptop and air card. That way the attendees can take turns live blogging the affair. On the other hand, if no one shows, it could just be me drunkenly pounding away on my keyboard. Then the main difference between this and any other Friday night becomes mainly geographical.
I have a few tentative RSVPs for both events, so let us know if you’re coming in the comments or via our normal communication mediums. I await your telegrams. Also, please list some venue suggestions for the NY gala.
Look for future events in these exotic locations:
- Hong Kong
- Pyong Yang
- Buenos Aires
And many, many more.
