Mark your calendars for Wednesday, March 30th and plan to join us at Siam Sushi for lunch from 11:30am to 1:30pm (treat it like an open house - come and go as your schedule allows).
Spearheaded by Paula (aka @biggreenpen) with help from Alicia @aliciawellman and me, this is a local event to raise money for disaster relief in Japan, and to have some social time with our friends (and future friends) who enjoy Twitter. Everyone is welcome, too, even if you are completely unfamiliar with tweeting. People around the country (and world too) are organizing Tweetdrive4Japan lunches, happy hours, and dinners this month.
See the official event (and make a donation) here:
Or you can RSVP on facebook at http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=198848546814320
Or you can RSVP on twtvite (our usual tweetup site) http://twtvite.com/tally4japan
We chose Siam Sushi because the food is great, there is plenty of parking, the location is fairly central, and they are considering donating a portion of all their proceeds the day of the Tweetup to Save the Children! See my review of Siam Sushi here.
Thanks for reading and hope to see you next Wednesday!
Update Sunday March 27th:
Thank you to Siam Sushi for agreeing to donate 10% of the proceeds from TweetDrive4Japan to Save the Children AND for donating a door prize: a gift certificate for lunch for 2!!
We're also thrilled that Mashable chose TweetDrive4Japan as one of 8 ways its readers can help Japan! Check out the article here: http://mashable.com/2011/03/25/ways-help-japan/ (To give you an idea how huge this is, @mashable has over 2.2 million Twitter followers so hopefully lots of local people will read the article and come support our Tallahassee event!)
Update Tuesday March 29th:
Door prizes! Did we mention there will be door prizes?
Thank you to these local businesses for their contributions:
Sam Goody, @SubwayTally, Sports Authority, Hunt Club Subs and Grill, @GamescapeTally, Barnes & Noble, and Siam Sushi!!
