A little PR for the Tweetup Cookout!!!!!
There have been a few questions or concerns about the cookout and how its going to work, so lets answer them now.
Q: “What is the $20 registration for?”
A. Food. All money is going toward hot dogs hamburgers, veggie burgers, and whatever requests you make. You can eat as much as you’d like, while the supplies last. But if you come 30 mins before the cookout is over, you might be SOL. Or not. We’ll see. Last year we had extra food. There are also going to be crabs available. Alcohol can be brought to the park, but only beer and wine can be consumed in the open. If you want to drink something stronger, bottle it up.
Q: What else is going on that weekend?
A: Check our tumblr.
Q: What hotels are in the area and what are the prices like?
A: Check Our Tumblr.
Q: What Airport Should I fly into?
A: You guessed it, check our tumblr. All the travel info you will need is there. Soon we will post directions from the surrounding areas, just for those folks who dont like to google things.
Q:What Is There to do while I’m there?
A. Well, for one, enjoy our nation’s capitol. There is something for everyone by way of museums, nightlife, lounges, and great restaurants. If by meaning AT the cookout, Allen Pond Park has basketball, courts, football fields, baseball fields, and an Ice rink (not sure if its open at the time). We promise, you will NOT be bored for a second. Too many wonderful people to meet. Networking opportunities to make.
Q: Will there be enough room for everyone? Should I bring a chair?
A: This is where it gets tricky. Is there enough room for everyone who has pre-registered? Yes. Those of you paying the day of, we will have a lot of space, but we cannot account for everyone who “says” they are coming. BUT we do not anticipate it being overcrowded because A. People are always coming and going B. Not all the people who will attend will be at the pavilion the entire time. Best advice is, if you feel you need to bring a chair do so. But we should have enough room for everyone.
Q: What is there to do after the cookout?
A: I don’t know. Depends on who is trying to do what and where. Most people are traveling back that night or monday so they may not want to do anything. But you never know. You just have to see the day of.
Q: Sides? Should I bring something?
A: If you can, yes. Your $20 only covers what was listed above. @JeffEsquire will be bringing potato salad. Others have committed Mac n Cheese. Inquiries have been sent out as to who wants to bring sides with little to no response. So, if you want to bring a side, please do, let @JeffEsquire or @tr3y__ know so we can let everyone know in case of allergies, etc.
If there are anymore question, don’t hesitate to hit up @JeffEsquire or @tr3y__ on twitter, or send us a question here. Thanks!
