Ah, Twitter, what did we do before you? We couldn't send 140-character messages conveying our latest lunch choice, mindless ramblings or occasionally meaningful bits of news. We also didn't have the capability to follow people without seeming stalkerish, nor did we have words like Twitterati, Tweeted or Twit-pic.
Another awesome Twitter-related pun comes in the form of local networking group Boise TweetUp, which identifies its goal as facilitating "face-to-face group meetings between social networking participants, many who may not have met face-to-face before."
The TweetUp will take a tasty turn today from 4:30-8 p.m. during the third annual Soup TweetUp at Berryhill and Co. restaurant. Re-learn how to interact with people in person during this fundraiser for the Boise Women's and Children's Alliance. A $5 suggested donation gets you a smattering of soups from Archie's Place, Bar Gernika, Bardenay, Berryhill, the Boise Co-op, Brewforia, Falcon Tavern, Fork, Jenny's Lunch Line, Life's Kitchen, 3 Girls' Catering, Zeppole and more. There will also be a silent auction with plenty of goodies for you to peruse.
Brush up on how to formulate sentences that are more than 140 characters long, step away from the computer and fill up on soup and good will at Berryhill.
