February introduces a return to our roots as we plan to gather at the Flying Saucer on Feb 18, 6pm. No tie-ins, no big event just a this wonderful group of friends old and new gathering to enjoy the pleasure of each others company.
The Flying Saucer has graciously agreed to set us up in the basement and will be providing flights of beer variations for our hops enthusiasts.
Join the conversation and invite your friends using our Facebook Event.
Many thanks to @steve_shuler for organizing and planning the Tweetup. Look forward to seeing you all there.
Classic meets casual. That sounds a lot like us so when the Arkansas Symphony asked if were we interested in joining their Beethoven and Blue Jeans Street Party we jumped at the opportunity.
The Street Party kicks off on Sat Nov 10 at 6pm on President Clinton Avenue in front of the Robinson Center Music Hall. There will be music, brats, and $2 Diamond Bear Beer.
In addition @ARsymphony is offering $10 tickets to the Beethoven and Blue Jeans concert that evening. Just use the discount code “LRTWEETUP”. Buy your tickets at ArkansasSymphony.org or call 501-666-1761.
You’ll enjoy the concert from the “Tweet Seats” where you are welcome to continue the conversation using the #BeethovenAndBlueJeans hashtag. The ASO will be tweeting program highlights and wants to hear what you think during the concert.
Please note the Street Party is free to attend no ticket or registration required, the concert tickets are $10.

The Beethoven & Blue Jeans concert begins with its namesake in Beethoven’s extraordinary classical overture, Creatures of Prometheus. Next, listeners will recognize sounds from Tan Dun’s hit film score for Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon in his Concerto for Pipa, featuring Wu Man on pipa (a Chinese lute-like instrument). Then, East meets West in the telling of Sinbad and Arabian Nights, in Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade – always a smash hit and a perfect piece to introduce new listeners to the ASO experience.

Last year as we tripped over the November Tweetup one of the consistent request I received was for a potluck style tweetup. Think Southern Baptist church meets SXSW.
I’ve had about a year to think on it, which is far longer than you all are ever allowed to give me to think again, and a traditional Thanksgiving potluck is just not our style. True @bryanjones does look even more bear like with oven mits and I hear @kellimarks makes an awesome stuffin’ muffin (make up your own jokes for those two). However there is one food group that geeks love above all else.
Any mexican food will do actually. Best if served from a truck by a guy with a neck beard. So I thought what better than to have a Taco Thanksgiving. Bonus points if you come rocking the neck beard.
Here is how this works. I’ve partnered with Eikon church along with Aaron Reddin, because you know it is the time of giving and all. Eikon is going to hosts us on their Open doors night which means some members of our community will join us. Aaron is going to bring the van by.
You have two options, either bring food or bring a donation for the Van. Think about what you want to do and I’ll kick around a signup sheet in the next couple of days. All are welcome to come eat, tweet, and hangout.
Eikon Church (518 w. 9th St)
See you guys there
Join central Arkansas’s tweeters at one of Little Rock’s coolest hot-spots, ZIN Urban Wine and Beer Bar, in the popular downtown 3rd Street district.
The owners of ZIN, Troy Deal and Michael Puckett, are excited we’re coming! They’ll put out a FREE snack spread just for us, in addition to offering fantastic happy-hour wine and beer specials.
ZIN offers a hip, non-smoking environment perfect for chatting up your old and new Twitter buds.
So…where does the “water to wine” theme come in?
I’ve wanted to do something to help Aaron Reddin (@HomelessHeretic) with his very important homeless aid project, the cornerstone of which is “The Van.” Perhaps you have, too. This is your chance!
Our homeless neighbors served by The Van are in constant need of bottled water. If everyone who attends the Tweetup brings a 6-pack (or more) of bottled WATER to the WINE bar, we’d amass a substantial donation.
Get it? WATER will lead you to WINE! Of course cash (or check) donations will also be appreciated.
Special appearance! Aaron and The Van itself will be with us at the Tweetup. They may even bring some T-shirts and arm bands.
Make plans now to join us September 27!
For more information about The Van and its mission, visit TheOneInc.org and read this story from Sync Weekly.
Help us spread the word by inviting friends through our Water to Wine Facebook Event.
Little Rock TweetUp is going back-to-school… or at least helping students get their learning on.
We’ve teamed up with the Junior League of Little Rock to Stuff the Bus. Each year, JLLR supplies students in the Little Rock School District, identified as “most in need,” with the essentials to succeed academically.
Join us Thursday, August 25 at 5:30 p.m. Copper Grill. They will prepare a signature appletini for the evening. We’ll be in the party room in the back.
Admission for the evening is school supplies. Requested items:
- school glue
- 24-count crayons
- loose-leaf wide ruled notebook paper
- #2 pencils
Y’all know I am shameless. I am a Southern woman, and I will go to the guilt if I have to. I fully expect big participation on this school supplies drive. We have shown in the past we can do impressive things. Let’s do it again.
