Silicon Beach: November Events
Daylight savings time is making our afternoons dreary and darker, but there's nothing depressing about this month's social media calendar. Here are several events in the 305 that you don't want to miss.
New Times writers, staffers and fans (including yours truly) will be bowling and sipping cocktails at Lucky Strike on South Beach this Friday, November 6 from 7 - 9 p.m. Come and knock down some pins with us at our third tweetup this year. RSVP at the twtvite.
On Wednesday, November 11 social media luminary Chris Brogan (whom we've interviewed here) will be in town before embarking on an educational cruise called Social Fresh. Rest assured, the whole Social Media Club South Florida gang will be there to wish him and other influencers a warm bon voyage. The historic tweetup starts at 6pm at the Doubletree Grand Hotel on Biscayne Bay. Visit Social Fresh for more information and to RSVP.
When people get together and use social media tools, good things happen. Or at least that's the idea behind Social Media for Social Change, which will host its first Miami fundraiser on Thursday, November 19 at 8 p.m. to benefit Camillus House. The party will be held at hoity-toity Club 50 at The Viceroy, but no worries -- 100 percent of ticket proceeds will go directly to charity. Tickets are $25 per person before November 9 and $35 at the door. Buy your tickets and get more information at Eventbrite.
Local bloggers and their fans will get together on Saturday, November
21 at Graziano's on Brickell from 2 - 5 p.m. for the first local blogup
held since 2006. The event is hosted by Sex and the Beach and Soul of Miami. Visit Soul of Miami for more information and to RSVP.
Refresh Miami meets on Wednesday, November 18, location TBD.
Gables Home Page, which Riptide featured in a post
last month, will have its first tweetup on the same night as Social
Media for Social Change's fundraiser, but hey, it's earlier in the day,
so in theory, you could make both: Thursday, November 19 at Books and Books in Coral Gables from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m.
All events free unless otherwise noted.
