It's Coming …

A certain Very Big Event is happening Saturday. An event that marks my birthday. If you're a regular reader of this blog you may know what this means, and you're welcome to join me along the route. I'll start at 10am.

take someone on the crawl that's not as old as you and knows how to use Twitter, one of those new-fangled Internet thingys

Patrick Beach said...

I you were a real man you'd liveblog about it. Have fun!

Lee said...

Bill: I don't have a phone that lets me tweet for free. Otherwise, I'd set that up.

Along the same lines, Patrick: I can think of no worse idea that getting drunk and carrying around my laptop. That sounds like a disaster waiting to happen.

As Bill said, take a techie along with you for the ride. Happy B-Day Mr. Beer Blogger.

Ugh. I am a techie and use pub tours to forget about tech stuff. If you wanted to experience the tour in real time you have to be there!
I think I'll start a new organization "Bobnoxious for tweet free pub crawls"

Bill said...

My namesake has it right: you should have tweeted it (you can do it with text messages from any damn phone), and appended the beermapping.com code for each place. Then you'd have a nice souvenir map of the crawl!

Too late for that, but I'm waiting with bated breath for the writeup of the pub crawl...

Bill C: Okay, I have twitter set up on my phone now. I didn't understand exactly how it was going to work (I thought I would be receiving and getting charged for updates from everyone I follow, but realized I was wrong). So yes, I should have tweeted the crawl.

As for the write-up: It is currently scheduled to appear in the Aug. 21 edition of the Chronicle. I'll link to it when it comes out.

BTW, my twitter feed for this blog is now set up at http://twitter.com/ILoveBeerBlog
