twestivalHave you ever been to a “tweetup”?  That’s a networking get together that is organized by users on Twitter that brings adorkable geeks, like you, together for drinks and camaraderie.

As I’ve share on my last post there is a global charity event that is harnessing the power of Twitter and tweetups for a great cause.  The NYCTwestival – scheduled for Feb. 12 at 7:30 p.m. at West Side bar M:2 – is just one of more than 100 events scheduled around the world to support charity:water, an organization dedicated to providing developing nations with access to clean drinking water.

The first Twestival was held September 2008 in London and now it has grown to this present event that’s now Global.

I have my ticket… do you?  You should.  The NYCTwestival features an open bar at M:2 until 9 p.m. and there will be live music too.  The first 400 tickets are available for $20 right here. After that, ticket prices increase to $40 and $60. VIP tickets are $100. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to charity:water.

Right now, 1.1 billion people on the planet don’t have access to safe, clean drinking water. That’s one in six of us.  I have plenty of water and I bet you do too.  Make a difference and help!

 

NYC has teamed with Google and created an Information Center at 810 Seventh Avenue.

The information Center has Surface-like map tables that are powered by the Google Maps API.  Is that cool or what?  Imagine being able to browse through attractions and create travel plans.  So if you are an adorkable geek make sure that your first stop in NYC is at the information Center.
