Think Ahead Thursday: Once A Month Mom Tweet-Up
Alright folks, the time is here to register for the first ever Once A Month Mom event! This is one you are sure to not want to miss! I mentioned it before and now it is time to sign-up. I don’t want you to miss out on this fun event. Whether you are coming to the event location (highly recommended) or just participating on Twitter, make sure that you RSVP so that you will be in the drawing for door prizes.
Here is the explanation of the event:
The purpose of this event is to bring families together that participate in once a month cooking days, especially those that do their cooking using Once A Month Mom menus. The evening’s events will include live food demonstrations, product demonstrations, product testing, appetizers, cocktails, meet and greets, and much more.
There will be several live food demonstrations done by Once A Month Mom author, Tricia Callahan. In addition, there will be opportunities to meet other once a month cooking families and potentially a cooking partner if you are looking for one. There will be also be products such as appliances and cooking equipment for participants to test out during their time at the event. Wine and appetizers will be served as participants mix and mingle.
In addition, we will be live stream videoing the event so that readers not in the immediate area can participate and get the information and resources provided during this event. We will also have a designated person live Tweeting the event through Twitter. We have capacity for up to 50 individuals to be present at the site location. We anticipate hundreds of participants via Twitter on the night of the event as well.
Saturday, October 10th, 6-9 pm
Event Site Location:
411 East Fifth Street, 3rd Floor** (FORGE Headquarters)
**Please note that there are NOT elevators at this location. You will be required to walk up three flights of stairs. I apologize to you whom that is a struggle or impossible to climb stairs. The location is one that was of limited cost and has a great cooking island. Please consider joining us via video stream and Twitter for everything that is happening and chances to win great prizes.
