I recently got an update from the folks who started the Blip’n'Beer initiative. The guys behind this party describe Blip’n'Beer as, “a party around the world with the same vibe. There’s no central command, no owners, just a bunch of Blip.fm DJs having fun with ‘unknown old friends’ in their home town…Blip’N’Beer happens as local Blippers are able and willing to make it happen, always with the mindset of fun, music and connection.” Sounds like a great evening with local Blippers. If you want to host a party in your city, you can declare your interest at the official Blip’n'Beer website.
I heard that the last meet up on November 19th went very well, with nine cities being represented and a bunch of photos posted (live via SMS!) to the site. These guys are on top of it, I’ve been informed that the next get together will be tomorrow, December 3, 2008 in at least 17 cities:
“Next Blip’N’Beer will be December 3rd and 17 cities have already confirmed their involvement. From US: San Francisco, Cleveland and NYC, From Brazil: Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Belo Horizonte, Recife, Brasília, Porto Alegre, Campinas, Bauru, from Colombia, Bogota, Medellin, Santa Marta. Also Weisbaden (Germany), Dublin (Ireland) and Lisbon (Portugal). And others will come.”
You can find out where and when everyone is meeting up in your town by visiting the website, if your city isn’t listed, start your own party! For more detailed info about the initiative or to get involved, feel free to email Gigia.
UPDATE: Make sure to RSVP so everyone knows you’re coming!
