SAMPRB tweetup #4: New digs, new menu, new partners and more great people / discussion

June 12, 2009

I stepped outside today and it was 91 degrees (felt like 191). “Holy cow! That means it’s June!,” I said to myself. “Time for another tweetup.”

We have great news for SAMPRB #4…

  • Even though 50 is a whole lot of people, 60 is more. So pack your bags because SAMPRB is going to Alamo Café on U.S. Highway 281 this month. Read on to see the menu options an don’t forget to bring cash, which covers your meal, drink, tax and gratuity. A big thanks to @momonmars (A.K.A. Debi Pfitzenmaier) for helping us get in touch with the people at Alamo Café. By the way, have you read her blog yet? If you have kiddos and live in San Antonio, you should. By the way, now that we are getting the hang of this we will try to move the event to restaurant venues around the city to give everyone a little variety. If there is somewhere closer to home or work that you would love to recommend feel free to leave your suggestion in the comment section of our brand new “venues” tab.
  • Because multitasking in a room full of people can be a bit challenging, we were offered live streaming help  by KSAT videojournalists @wmcaldera (A.K.A. William Caldera) and @googoovideo (A.K.A. Robert Paniagua) and, of course, we gladly accepted 🙂 So look forward to an improved live stream service and follow these two gentlemen! Details will follow.

Now that you know what’s new, be sure to RSVP ahead of time. There are only 50 60 spots available  –> RSVP here

Was that all too good to be true? There’s more. This month’s topic is…

Social Media Legal Issues and Policies –

Not everything is peachy

Our guest speakers (list coming soon!) will talk to us about social media policies for companies and employees. They will also present case studies related to legal issues with social media including privacy and personal identity.  Bring questions!

And, by popular request, we will dedicate 10 minutes (or however long it takes us) to list a few more useful social media tips, tricks and tools. The Web is constantly changing. This is a way to help each other keep up.

Feel free to get the discussion going ahead of time – Here or on Twitter using the #SAMPRB hashtag.

Before we tweetup

The second SAMPRB tweetup is in a mere 37 hours (but who’s counting?) so we wanted to post a quick list of what to expect. If this reminds you of your school days when teachers would tell you what to bring to a test I immediately apologize and promise that the tweetup will be much more fun, engaging and effective than any standardized test.

1. Because I know my priorities I’m listing food first. As you know, the great people at Paloma Blanca have once again agreed to accomodate our group (52 RSVPs! Not too shabby) and, to help things run smoothly, they have suggested a three-item lunch menu. Each item is $14, which includes the lunch entree and drink of your choice, tax and gratuity. Easy right? So just make sure you make a trip to the ATM sometime before the tweetup.

The menu is below:

  • Enchiladas Verdes: Two chicken enchiladas covered in our tangy tomatillo sauce, melted queso Monterrey and topped with sour cream. Served with Spanish rice, frijoles borrachos and guacamole.
  • Pollo al Cilantro: Grilled chicken breast covered with our signature Crema Cilantro. Served with Spanish rice and frijoles borrachos.
  • Ensalada Esmeralda: A blend of crisp iceberg, romaine and spinach lettuces with grilled chicken, tortilla strips, red onions, rajas poblano and queso fresco tossed in our cilantro dressing.

2. Don’t forget our theme is personal branding but think of that as the appetizer. The idea is to let the discussion run it’s own course. @nanpalmero from Salesby5, @joeruiz from KSAT and SAMPRB founder and yours truly, @andinarvaez from KGBTexas Public Relations / Advertising, will kick us off with some insight on personal branding for those in business, media and public relations. We will then open up the floor for more discussion. Our very own @writeontime (A.K.A. Donna Tuttle), from the San Antonio Business Journal and also a proud SAMPRB founder, will be our moderator.

3. If you couldn’t make it or RSVP, don’t despair. We will live stream the tweetup via Ustream and live tweet using the #samprb hashtag. Feel free to participate right from your office or from home.

4. Three things are more than enough to keep track of. See you at the tweetup!
