The Chicago Cubs’ annual Social Media Night is Wednesday, August 21 – a week from Wednesday – and they’ve added another top guest to the lineup: ESPN’s (and Chicago’s) Michael Wilbon. Together with Darren Rovell, the pre-game panel is going to have an interestingly national feel. I’m also not sure that Wilbon and Rovell use Twitter in quite the same way, so it will be interesting to hear how they each regard its utility.
That pre-game panel takes place at the Captain Morgan Club, and is part of an overall pre-game social event where folks can meet up, chat, have a beer, etc. More importantly than the Wilbon news – or maybe just as importantly? or considerably less importantly? yeah, probably that one – I will be there for Social Media Night as well. I hope to meet up with some of you, as it’s a fun event, and I like meeting you crazy people.
After the pre-game stuff, there’s the game – in the bleachers, naturally – so it makes for a good night all around. There are prizes, and goodies, and that kind of thing, too. If you want to attend, you have to get your special Social Media Night ticket via the Cubs’ promotion page.
No, this is not an advertisement. I just wanted to put it on your radar, since I enjoy the event and would love to see some of you there.
