Celebrate San Diego Beer Week 2010 with SDTweetup and TapHunter!

Remember when we used to all get together every month or so for the SDTweetup? Well, SDTweetup is getting back into a groove. We had a very fun movie event in September with the advanced screening of Catfish, and now a new SDTweetup has been scheduled for November.

The time seemed right to introduce two somewhat overlapping groups to each other, formally. SDTweetuppers, meet SD Beer Week. Craft beer lovers in San Diego, how’d you like to come to an SDTweetup? In this spirit, we’ve joined up with Melani and Jeff “Flash” Gordon of TapHunter.com to create a unique event.

What: SDTweetup Celebrates SD Beer Week with TapHunter
Where: West Coast Tavern, 2895 University Ave., San Diego
When: Tuesday, November 9, 7:00 PM
Who: The first 250 people who RSVP here

We’ll have all the usual SDTweetup mayhem, giveaways, and usual suspects (who are probably some of your closest friends by now), along with a new injection of hops, malt, and beer culture. There will be tasty craft beer and food pairings from West Coast’s chef Peter Zakarian to satisfy your palate, and a TweetWall to post your juiciest OH’s and most random photos of the event. (Many thanks to Gabe Lawrence and tweetwalllive.com for this.)

You’ll also learn more about the over 300 events scheduled to happen during SD Beer Week, and have an opportunity to plot out your attending strategy with your Twitter friends.

Our sponsors will make coming worth your while, too. The generous folks at mophie will be giving away 10 mophie juice packs for keeping your iPhone or iPod Touch charged up all day. TapHunter is also planning to bring some special prizes. To enter to win, please win a business card of some sort–time to order those moo cards!–so we can draw yours to win.

Attendance is capped at 250, so RSVP today! If this is your first SDTweetup, get the most out of it by first reading these tips.

SDTweetup returns with sneak peek screening of Catfish

Many San Diego folks active in social media remember SDTweetup with some affection. It was among the first local real-life gatherings of folks who had met online, specifically on Twitter. The last official SDTweetup happened a year ago at Halloween. I don’t know about you, but I missed it.

Hurrah! A new SDTweetup has been scheduled, and there is dancing in the streets! But to get in on this one, you will have to be quick.

What: SDTweetup at the Movies – Catfish Advanced Screening
Where: AMC Theatres La Jolla 12
When: Wednesday, September 15, 6:00 PM
Who: The first 75 people who RSVP at Eventbrite.com will get an “admit 2” ticket

Check out the Catfish trailer. This will fill up fast, so please RSVP as soon as possible or risk sadface.

Why is this SDTweetup so special? Well, besides being the first one in about a year, it is also the last SDTweetup that will be organized by its creator, Jenn Van Grove (@jbruin). Jenn has done great things in the tech space in the last few years, like joining Mashable as an associate editor and becoming a TV tech correspondent for NBC San Diego. Now she is taking her talents to San Francisco and has bequeathed the SDTweetup event to your humble reporter (AKA me, Peggy Gartin, @thepegisin on Twitter).

Hope you can join us this Wednesday! And if you have ideas for future SDTweetups, please let me know at @thepegisin, thepegisin@cox.net, or http://www.meetup.com/sdtweetup.
