I attended #TwilightYEG last night at Hundred Bar & Kitchen in Edmonton.
The Edmonton Twitter event attracted around 60 people and raised over $3,400 for the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation. Add that $3,400 to the #TwilightYEG pre-event at Lux last week that raised more than $400.
#TwilightYEG was organized by realtor Jerry Aulenbach and Shauna McConechy of Out Inc. Good job guys!
It was a lot of fun to see everyone dressed up and helping to raise money for charity. I didn’t bid on the BBQ, which @sirthinks ended up winning, by outbidding everyone at $1,700. One of the chefs at Hundred will BBQ for you and 10 people, if I understand correctly. That would be good!
Deciding to use Edmonton Transit was a good plan. I ordered what I thought was a pint of one of my favourite beers, Hoegaarden, and they brought me a massive glass of beer. Sure it’s not a schooner from Brewster’s, but a half-litre of beer is nothing to sneeze at. A couple of those, a pint of Guinness and driving is not an option. That being said, you really ought to try Hoegaarden. Great beer!
It seems like I’m at practically every Edmonton Twitter event there is! At least, that’s one someone pointed out at the last one I was at! Haha!
The fun continues tonight at Ceili’s where the YEGtwits will be looking to burst out of second place and take the trivia championship. We’ve been second three weeks in a row. It will end tonight!
