Celebrate April Fools with Fake Foursquare Day

Usually every April 1st, I hang up my twitter for the day. With the tons of fake news stories, announcement, event cancellations and such… I just can’t keep up with all of the deviation.

I started eating yams (sweet potatoes) pretty much everyday, straight out of the can for breakfast, lunch…

Well, we all survived the first Castle Tweetup! I met a few new faces I had been chatting with on Twitter, it wasn’t really a tweetup to network but to experience something new. The DJ’s at The Castle in Ybor were spinning the best 80’s tunes and videos, I hadn’t seen this Max Headroom- Art…
