The #DCTwirlies met for the first Girlie DC Tweetup at Co Co Sala on Monday, July 6. Co Co Sala was a bit quiet on a Monday night, which we had hoped and were happy about. We were able to meet up with the Event Coordinator and she allowed us to sit around tables and enjoy delicious chocolate drinks and food. We were a bit disappointed with the overpricing of their drinks (which didn’t seem that different than other places other than the addition of chocolate) and the portions of their food but we had a fantastic time.
The conversations started out with why Twitter is so great, why iPhones are better than Palm Pre’s (they aren’t – hehe), and why Cynthia (@govpartners) has such an incredible husband. The laughs were contagious, @amyeandrews was her dry/hilarious self and made sure we were rollin’. We got around to introducing ourselves quickly and chatting with those around us.
After getting our food and sharing in the fascination of the small portions, we counted off and moved around to talk to other people. During that time we tweeted about what a great time we were having (see pictures of all of us on our phones) and tried to convince Jen (non-tweeter) why Twitter was so addictive, fun and helpful. (She’ll be on Twitter soon!) We counted off a 3rd time and continued to find more interesting conversations and then @marybealladler showed up and cracked us all up by learning that TweetDeck was available on her iPhone.
We finally got around to introductions and told each other why we joined Twitter and how our reasoning for tweeting has changed over the last months. @themamateresa ordered a beautiful chocolate platter and shared it with all (the platter was not as great as you’d think though). If you didn’t join us, you missed some great conversations, some delicious chocolate and fun girlie times. There will definitely be another in August – just need to find a restaurant who wants to sponsor us. Go ahead, tweet about it and see what you can find!
