Give me a shout if you’re attending the Cubs’ Social Media Night this coming Monday, Sept. 17. I’ll be joining the pre-game festivities at the Captain Morgan Club and then hitting up the bleachers for the game (Travis Wood starting vs. Pirates).
The Cubs held its first-ever Social Media Night in May. It was a huge success, which is why they’re holding a second outing this season.
You’ll obviously be introduced to a ton of fellow Cubs fans, have an opportunity to swap Twitter handles and actually meet people you’ve only interacted with on Twitter and Facebook.
That last one, of course, was a really cool experience for me and what I’ll be looking forward to again on Monday. I expect many of the same folks to be back for round two, and there’s certain to be some new faces, so I’ll be glad to meet up and share another evening in the bleachers together.
If you’re interested in going but still need a ticket, make sure to purchase one by using the link provided here. (Do not purchase a regular game ticket. Doing so will not allow you access to the Social Media Event and you’ll miss all the fun!)
The cost is less than $30 bucks and includes a game ticket to the Budweiser Bleachers, an exclusive Cubs Social Media Night shirt (as pictured) and access to the pregame social events at Captain Morgan Club beginning at 5:15pm.
A dozen fans will win an upgrade to an all-inclusive suite, another lucky fan will be selected to throw out the game’s first pitch and everyone gets to enjoy a foot-long Truffle Mac & Cheese Dog served up by Levy Restaurants…please allow me to apologize in advance for making a pig of myself. Sorry, (burp).
There’s also the chance one Social Media Night fan will be called upon to pitch out of Dale Sveum’s bullpen. Well, maybe not…I made that part up. But, I do throw a pretty good splitty, no worse than say, Alex Hinshaw. Eh?
