UPDATE: There is now a winner for the pair of tickets to Thursday's event: Angel. His name was drawn out of our Oakland A's hat (for realz), so congrats. And special thanks to all of your email comments, I enjoyed them greatly and I'll be paying my $5 along with you tomorrow.
Our Brothers In Blog, Fresno Beehive, are organizing another one of their Tweetups at The Chuk. It's Thursday and should be good. Highlights for us include a Tweetup goers only Thirsty Thursday booth, and the likelyhood of Barry Zito (and his pretty curveball) making a rehab start that night.
Breakdown of the whats:
WHAT: The third annual Great Fresno Tweetup, a face-to-face meetup for Fresno's local Twitter community. It includes baseball-watching, networking, games, prizes, cheap beer, possible heckling and, of course, lots of Tweeting,WHEN: 6 p.m. Thursday, 'til whenever the game is over. First pitch is at 7:05 p.m., but our event starts at 6, which is when $1 Thirsty Thursday beers are available. Not a coincidence.WHERE: Chukchansi Park, downtown Fresno. At the "Tweetdeck," our private party deck overlooking left field.WHY: Because Fresno's Twitter community is: (a) Awesome, (b) Growing, (c) Full of fun people and (d) Somehow well-behaved enough that we haven't been 86'd from The Chuk after the previous two Tweetups. Also, word is that Barry Zito of the Giants will be pitching on Thursday, so that's pretty rad.
Alright. You know what's going on. Now is your chance to win a ticket (plus 1) to the event (courtsey of Fresno Beehive). Just email firstname.lastname@example.org saying whatever you want - it could be "The Fresnan sucks ass!" - and you're entered. Easy. Winner will get sent a reply email later Wednesday night.
