You've had an amazing time at The Social Shake-Up. Your head is exploding with the possibilities of how to apply all of the knowledge you have soaked in over the past couple of days. The final keynote by Baratunde Thurston sent you off to the closing reception with a skip in your step and a smile in your heart. You get to solidify all of your connections you've made and say goodbye to the good people you've met.
You don't fly out until Thursday. You have a whole evening ahead of you here in Atlanta, and you absolutely don't want the fun to end! What will you do?
Join us for The Social Shake-Up 2014 Pub Crawl! Become a SMT VIP!
Yes, that's right. Immediately following the closing reception we will begin our journey for an evening full of fun, laughter and gamification.
Following the closing reception at Altitude on the 27th floor of the W Hotel, we will Mosey over to RiRa Irish Pub, where you can grab a bite, order a cold beverage, and enjoy the company of other social shakers. Be sure to find me to collect your badge bling before moving on to the final location.
Our final stop will be at KooKoo Room, which is one of mid-town's elite clubs, with drinks and dancing and loads of fun! Once you collect your badge bling here, you simply snap a photo of your badge, and tweet the picture with the hashtag, #TSSU14Crawl.
All of the participants who tweet their badge of bling will be included in an exclusive VIP Twitter list for an entire year. Next year, the list will be erased and re-populated with new attendees, so take advatage of being included this year! SMT has special things planned for this list.

So, what did last year's attendees really think?
"I LOVED the pub crawl last year. Besides getting introduced to the best hush puppies I've ever had, along with boiled peanuts with cajun sauce; I had some of the best one-on-one conversations with some brilliant individuals." - Ric Dragon, CEO, DragonSearch
"The Social Shake-Up Pub Crawl was a highlight of the show! Great way to not only see the city, but meet new people in a relaxed and fun environment!" - Chuck Hester, Managing Partner, The Affinity Alliance, Inc.
"Last year's pub crawl began at the Tap: A Gastropub, and after many drinks and social gabs later, ended at the Deadwood Saloon. Including everything from MySpace bashing to Foursquare predictions, this networking event turned into a night of memorable social media madness." - Christianna Giordano, Digital Strategist, Senior Account Executive, Cohn & Wolfe
"The pub crawl was fantastic! It provided a refreshing, change-up venue that was absolutely conducive to making real connections with fellow social media pros. The Social Shake-Up Pub Crawl = community. - Eric Ullman, Principle & Chief Alchemist, CX Alchemy
"The pub crawl last year was such a great opportunity to engage with other people that you might not have been able to see during the conference, let your hair down, and enjoy the beautiful city of Atlanta!" - Willie Davis, Digital Content Media Specialist, Nexus
As for me, I can truly say that I made some great friendships with amazing people during last year's Pub Crawl. All have remained close contacts throughout the year. I am so excited to see what this year brings!
Come join the fun! If you have any questions at all, feel free to contact me directly. I can't wait to see you all there!
