Hope everyone had a great New Years and is gearing up for a great year! Here's some updates on what's going on and what's on tap for 2010.Our First Meetup
As many of you know, we've got our first Meetup scheduled for next Thursday, January 14th at 7:00 at Generation Records. I'll stop by there before then to let them know we're coming. If you have some ideas for places we could go after meeting up, be sure to post them in the "Talk about this Meetup" section on this page: Visit to Generation Records
. This will be the first of many Meetups so if you can't make this one, we'll catch you at a future one.Suggest Meetups!
If you have an idea for a future Meetup event, be sure to let us know on the Ideas page here: Suggest a Meetup
. Great ideas can come from anyone so don't be shy.Analog Apartment Meetups in other cities
One thing we're really excited about for 2010 is getting similar record lover Meetups started in other cities. We did a blog post about it here
and we've got people in 9 other cities interested in starting their own Analog Apartment Meetups. If you know someone in another city that might be interested, point them to that blog post.Ace Hotel Sponsorship
On the Meetup group home page, you'll see we've got Ace Hotels listed as a sponsor. I recently chatted with them and they are interested in helping promote our Meetups, offering special deals for us (discount + free records), and potentially allowing us to have Meetups in one of their hotel rooms that has a turntable. This is still in the initial discussion phase but I'm really excited to see what we can do there.
Thanks again for joining the group and I'm looking forward to seeing how we can all make this a great year for vinyl!
