This Thursday I will be speaking on a Verizon Wireless panel about women and smartphones (and of course showing off my Motorola Xoom that I’ve been test driving for the last 2 weeks.) After throwing 2 events at BlogHer and hearing a lot from my podcast listeners and blog readers about how lucky NYC bloggers are to have so many events in NYC all the time I was really excited to be asked to be a part of this event because I get to invite 10 readers!
I also have to admit that I had an ulterior motive for saying yes to this event – it’s at Lady Mendl’s Tea Salon in Gramercy Park. Those of you that know me in real life know that I don’t drink coffee. I am all tea, all day. I start with Earl Grey in the morning, move on to green in the afternoon and usually ginger or mint by evening. I drink A LOT of tea. And high tea is one of my favorite outings of all time. I even carry around my Earl Grey with me in a little bag in case I’m faced with a sad box of Lipton when I arrive somewhere.
So, given the chance to combine two of my longest and favorite passions – tech and tea – how could I not say yes? But, even better I get to share it with some of you.
If you would like to attend the Verizon Wireless tech and tea event as my guest this Thursday evening, August 18th just fill out leave a comment telling me why you want to attend and how a smartphone or tablet has (or could) make your busy life easier and I will contact you with the details. I will be choosing guests via random.org.
If you can’t make it but you would love to be on the Verizon Wireless group’s radar leave a regular old comment anyway letting me know the same smartphone or tablet info. And if you throw in your fave kind of tea you’ll just up your cool factor in my eyes. Us tea people have to stick together!
Good luck and hope to see you Thursday!
