Anyone who suggests that Twitter and the like are killing real community should take a look at “Tweet Crawl 2.0”, taking place tomorrow on the Sunset Strip.
Following July’s successful event, organisers have decided to do it again, with participants simply tweeting as they crawl their way down various clubs on the Strip.
Starting at The Standard, Hollywood at 6.30pm, it takes in The Andaz, The Comedy Store, Book Soup, The Viper Room and The Roxy Theatre.
“We’re having a blast turning a burgeoning online community into a real world party,” said Nathan Levinson, marketing director, Viper Room. “We’re all ecstatic about Tweet Crawl 2.0 (#StripCrawl) just two days before the kickoff of the Sunset Strip Music Festival. Count on festival tickets to be among the prizes up for grabs on this go. We’re also proud to announce the addition of The Standard hotel in West Hollywood and Book Soup, making this Crawl a six-stop venture, which will kickoff poolside at The Standard, Hollywood, with gourmet hot dogs and drink specials.”
So expect some increasingly nonsensical tweets on #StripCrawl as tomorrow evening progresses.
