Twelve of us had a second successful breakfast tweetup this morning at Prince Street Cafe. Thanks for reading about it on this Lancaster PA blog!
Lancaster, PA tweetups are on a roll
The twelve of us were Jeff Geoghan, Kate Peteritas, Jeremy Walter, Bryan Coe, Jeff Rumm, Chad Hamilton, Shanelle Lee, Max Phillips, Paul Stoltzfus, Ryan Shen-Hoover, Joel Walker, and myself. We all made it out at 7 a.m. or so for some breakfast, coffee, and conversation.
For me, it was the first time I met Chad, Bryan, and Ryan in real life. We’ve been following each other on Twitter and Facebook for several months, so it’s great to bring it full circle with a little face-to-face time. Good guys, all three of them. Chad was officially the youngest adult at the tweetup. He’s a student at Manheim Township High School and spends part of his time studying graphic design at the Lancaster County Career & Technology Center.
This is the fifth successful tweetup we have now had in Lancaster since we began six months ago:
- Apple store opening at Park City mall – Sept. 20
- Paul Rothrock’s birthday pub crawl down Plum Street – Sept. 27
- Ice skating and chilling in the skybox at Clipper Magazine Stadium – Jan. 23
- Breakfast tweetup No. 1 – Feb. 24
- Breakfast tweetup No. 2 – March 11
There were other attempts, but I haven’t verified that any of them were well-attended enough to be considered bona fide tweetups. (Please fill us in if I missed any.)
To get the scoop upcoming tweetups, keep an eye on the Lancaster PA Tweetups group on Facebook. Planned get-togethers include lunch, late-night diner run, Saturday morning coffee, and who knows what else.
A couple people suggested that we have name tags next time. Paul threatened never to return if we crossed the line into having a sign-in sheet, though. What should we do for our next tweetups?
