Join Us for a Pre-HighEdWeb Saturday Night Tweetup

Join Us for a Pre-HighEdWeb Saturday Night Tweetup

Hey everyone!  Are you getting into Milwaukee a little bit early for HighEdWeb this year?  Then be sure to join myself and Rachel for a Tweetup at Mo’s Irish Pub Saturday night at 8:00PM.  We’ll gather in the hotel lobby of the Hilton about 10 minutes ahead of time and walk down to the pub from there.  If you’re running a bit late, don’t worry, just show up any time, we’ll plan on being there at least a couple hours, and I’m sure many of us will be there longer than that (you can always tweet any of the people there to see if we’re still around too). Bring business cards, hunger, and a desire to network!  This is a great chance to get to know some of the conference folks ahead of time.

Mo’s Irish Pub (also on Twitter and Facebook) is only about 4 blocks from the hotel. They serve food until 1:00AM and drinks until 2:30AM; there is a full menu on their site.

Please RSVP by Friday the 2nd if you would like to come so we can warn Mo’s ahead of time.

    Sounds like fun! Too bad I didn’t get this announcement a little earlier, would have changed my ticket. I’ll see everyone on Sunday though!

    In Milwaukee -

    While you’re here be sure to check out PotBelly which is just across the street from Mo’s. I’m a big fan of their wreck sub on wheat.

    There’s also a food court on the 2nd floor of the Grand Avenue mall. Grecian Gardens has pretty good gyros. There’s also a Subway, Arbys, qdoba, Culvers, rocky rococo pizza, I think two “asian” places, a pizza place to avoid (Villa Pizza), and the chocolate factory which is off the path of the other eateries but worth trying to find (subs and ice cream).

    Bring some extra money to take to Potowatomi casino - it’s about 2 miles from the Hilton and all the downtown hotels have free shuttles to and from all day. Pretty nice 20 table poker room plus slots, blackjack, roulette, and everything else. Their site is (would be true if today was opposite day). If you want to play poker call 1800paysbig ahead of time and ask for the poker room to get on the list - they’ll hold your name on the list for 2 hours.

    Feel free to ask me anything else about Milwaukee.
