Ratatatat! Announcing the long-awaited next #socialmelb dinner. ~ September 2010

After an amazing turnout (~150) for Mashable’s Social Media Day drinks, we’re convening again for some Spring salutations at HONEY BAR in South Melbourne.

Honey’s make-things-happen-man and late-night tweetaholic – Steve Vallas is pulling out all stops on the night. This includes a never been seen before 25% discount off all mains, pizzas and desserts on the night.

We’ll also have the pleasure of purchasing a custom-made cocktail, duly titled the ‘Social Media Expert’. Or if you prefer yours a little stronger: the ‘Social Media Douchebag’. Other drinks (house wine, house sparkling, basic spirits and Coronas) are also on special at $6.

Date: Wednesday 29th September
Time: From 6pm
Cost: Entirely up to you
Attire: Required

Steve loves seeing creative people in Honey’s space and it is exactly this kind of ethos that will make the night a complete hoot. To top things off – there’s unlimited high-speed WiFi available so we’ll be able to talk to each other through Twitter… for something different.

Please RSVP (below in the comment section or via Facebook) so we can get an idea of numbers. Friends and colleagues most welcome.

See you there!
