I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who came out to the annual YEMSG tweetup. I think we can put this one in the "success" column.
Over the course of the evening, I would estimate just under 100 people attended, many old faces but some new twibers as well. Beer and food were plentiful, and to the best of my knowledge, not one person wooked out on their bill. The raffle went well thanks to a legit pa system, and we even pulled off the first decent indoor group photo. On the flip side, I did forget to print the tweebay responses, so I'll post those below. And the name tag situation was less than perfect, but we can blame that on twtvite. ;-)
Special thanks goes out to Phanart and SetListTees for donating items for the raffle. There was quite the assortment of pins, stickers, and t-shirts that were won. In the end, we were able to donate $90 to mockingbird. Big ups go out to FuryThug for providing us with the space at AOA Bar and Grill. Mad credit must be given to SnoopKatieKate for going in early to set up and help with hosting duties. Shout out to CabanaGhost for getting me the name tags at the last minute. Finally, thanks to everyone who kicked in a few bucks, it keeps this event economically viable on my end.
Happy new year everyone, and cheers to many more events in the future.
What were your favorite twibe moments of 2013?
Sunday at Dicks, Twibe rage party on mike's side.
The Dicks meet-up was amazing because there were so many of us! Using the flowers to create a Twibe dance space from Bangor to Chicago to Dicks also made me so happy!
@thisalbumsucks ate macaroni and cheese
The deadbeat juntas kicked out of this year's edition.
Roadtrip to Chicago with King Wooks Steve and Katie. Also Hampton. All of it.
So I had this Dicks webcast party and of course I invited my Twibe friends. I decided to have a taco bar as the main course. Tyler, a twiber and good friend of mine, decided to bring some homemade hot sauce to accompany said taco bar. Fast forward many margaritas later, an idea was hatched! Tyler and I would make hot sauce and attempt to sell it on Phish Fall Tour. I know, just another silly, drunken idea. It would never work...or would it? Well we got the peppers, sourced the bottles, designed some kickass labels, established celebrity relationships (Aron Magner), and went to work. So much love and positive vibes began occurring right away. First in Hampton, then Reading, then in AC at the PhanArt poster show, on Twitter, on Facebook, everywhere we went! We couldn't keep these bottles in stock! Our hot sauce shipped to 9 states. It literally caught fire! 80 bottles of hot sauce later we now see this as more than just a silly idea. It's now a passion project that we truly believe could be life changing. We couldn't have done it without the love from the Twibe. They never stopped believing in us, encouraging us, sharing ideas on how to sell more of it, telling their friends about it, and inspiring us to pursue our star furthur. Thank you tacos. Thank you Tweezer. Thank you Twibe. - Troy & Tyler @TylersHotSauce
