The TT is upon us again, which is always a great opportunity to get out and enjoy the atmosphere that the road-racing festival offers. After a few expressions of interest, we thought we’d arrange an extra-special tweet up. Special in that it’s during TT Race week and that gives us opportunity to extend the invitation to people who aren’t usually on the island, and even more special because we can also extend a welcome to our southern friends by holding it in Castletown.
Between @PerrynIOM, @andrewjskatz, @johnbinns, @isleofmandan, @BugJo and @NettyIOM we’ve agreed on The Royal George, Castletown town square at 19:30 on Thursday 7th June (TT Race week). We thought this is a central location for everyone to be able to find.
If you’d like to join us, please chime in on Twitter by contacting either myself or one of the others or by commenting on this post. As this is a southern event, anyone travelling further north that could offer a lift or would like to share a taxi towards Douglas would be an extra special “tweetheart” 😉
It’s been a while since we last did an evening Tweet-up for the Isle of Man Social Media Club and we’ve had enquiries so let’s do it again!
These evenings are a great way for people who can’t make our usual lunch-time meetings at Paparazzi to attend and catch-up and meet their tweeps in a rather *ahem* informal atmosphere. Whether you’re a social media guru or a n00b, you’re more than welcome to join in. And you don’t even have to “check-in”.
Same deal as usual. Due to the excellent service and support from The Velvet Lobster coffee shop on the last tweet-ups, we’re going to stick with what we know and start there for their Jolly Friday home-made cocktails and a bit of a bite. Following that, we can decide on the night. Guys and Dolls has re-opened if you fancy a bit of kitsch 80’s pop or maybe the more mainstream music at Bordello’s may be more to your taste.
So here’s the deal. We need to track numbers for the venues so in my true form, I keep a spreadsheet. If you’d like to join us, let me know by commenting on this post, or contacting me using the links on the right and I’ll make sure you’re on the list.
Hope you can make it! Velvet Lobster, Friday 11 May at 6pm onwards.
While we try and keep a relatively memorable frequency of these throughout the year, feel free to arrange something with your fellow tweeps outside of these events. We’d be more than happy to help promote your own events. Drop us a line by contacting either myself (using the contact links on the right) or Owen.
While we regularly meet for the Third Thursday in every month for chat over a pizza about social media, technology and marketing, we like to spread our wings now and then and arrange an evening event. This allows more people to attend as it is out of work time and people can stay for longer, but it also gives our friends outside Douglas the chance to join in the chat and meet their fellow tweeps.
This month we’re planning on having a bit of a bite at The Velvet Lobster on Friday 13th January. It’s their Jolly Time, which means cocktails are cheaper (and they are very good, made from fresh ingredients). After food, we’re hoping to grab a taxi down to the new Crescent Nightclub which has just re-opened for some frivolity, music and dancing.
Hopefully there’s enough for everyone in the night. If you plan on coming and so we can book tables, please contact me by tweeting me @programx or leaving a message in the comments and I’ll add you to the spreadsheet!
Hope to see you there!
