The DPAC will open its doors to Triangle bloggers and 30THREADS users for a social bash on Thursday, April 9.
If you haven’t had a chance to see the new theater in downtown Durham, this is your opportunity to explore it, eat some food, sip on a cocktail and socialize with other local bloggers. I’m told by Rachel Gragg (the theater’s social media go-to person) that we’ll even be able to get up on stage and take photos.
Here’s what you need to know:
Any Triangle-area residents who blog. It doesn’t matter what you blog about. This is a chance for us bloggers to put a face with our blog names and socialize. Also, if you don’t blog but you read 30THREADS, Ginny from the Blog or other local blogs, then you should come too. Local Flickr users and tweeps are invited too.
Never been to one of our blogger bashes? Bring a friend or a date for comfort. Here’s a recap of what went down at the last 30THREADS blogger bash.
When is it?
The event will start with a happy hour (cash bar) at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, April 9!
It will officially run from 7 to 9 p.m. April 9.
Where is DPAC?
It’s in downtown Durham beside the Durham Bulls Athletic Park. The exact address is 123 Vivian Street, Durham, NC.
The event is scheduled a week before “Legally Blonde The Musical” kicks off, so Rachel plans to give away tickets to the show. The event will feature other Legally Blonde treats too. And there will be free food, a cash bar and free ticket giveaways. Rachel also plans to give tickets away to Kathy Griffin and possibly more upcoming shows. She’ll have a better idea once it gets closer to the event.
Why is DPAC sponsoring the event?
I met Rachel over the summer to talk about Twitter. Since then, she’s had a lot of fun tweeting about DPAC events and checking out local blogs. So when I mentioned to her that 30THREADS was looking for a place to host its next blogger bash … She suggested we have it at DPAC. Here’s what she wrote:
“DPAC wants those in the social media community to realize the dedication we have as a new performing arts theatre in the Triangle to bring something for everyone to the area. We are devoted to customer service and making sure that anyone and everyone that walks in the door has a positive experience. We also want to make sure that our followers and supporters know us and are aware of all our upcoming events. We want public feedback, we encourage suggestions, and most of all we are glad you are here!
Come hang out, enjoy appetizers & wine, stand on the stage, and even win tickets.”
If you have any questions about the bash, let me know. If you plan to be there, drop me a note in the comments section or RSVP on facebook.
