#EastVanLove Tweetup Version 2.0

March 24, 2011

Last night at the Our Town Cafe at Broadway and Kingsway was the second East Van Tweetup. The event was packed with tweeps of many different stripes. Good times were had. Beer was consumed. Photos were taken. Relationships were formed.

Welcome to Eastvan and others donated to the cause, with the cause being having fun and celebrating life in East Vancouver.

There were some speeches and some live music, but it was hard to see and hear due to the crowd. People kept arriving even after the festivities officially ended. You can search for the hashtag #EastVanLove to get a little taste of the evenings. If I have a complaint, and I do. It is the speakers didn’t seem connected or even really necessary. Perhaps one less speaker and some sort of theme for the next event. I took photos with my iPhone but I decided to steal, err borrow photos from John Biehler’s Flickr account, hopefully John is cool with that.
