Sushi Samba (@sushisamba), the popular restaurant and bar on the corner of Pennsylvania Avenue and Lincoln Road, is throwing its first tweetup on January 20 at 8 p.m. The party takes place simultaneously with other locations in Vegas, Chicago and New York City.
The nationwide "meet&TWEET" hopes to gather Sushi Samba fans for a feast of food, drink and of course, Twitter talk.
Silicon Beach spoke with the corporate office in New York City and was promised Miami would have $5 mojitos and caipirinhas. If that doesn't make you froth at the mouth, consider salivating over $4 to $6 menu specials featuring spicy crunchy tuna roll, crispy yellowtail taquitos, chilled Mediterranean mussels on the half shell and more. There's even an exclusive TWITTERoll, a bit pricier at $8 but a bigger mouthful with tuna, avocado, jalapeno and fresh tomato salsita in rice paper.
A Twitter stream will be projected for all to follow the conversation using #sstwtup as hashtag. If Sushi Samba has nametags, yours truly might very well consider this a perfect example of smart social media marketing.
