Social media is all about real-time updates and getting news faster than ever. When it comes to the local news that matters most to Seattleites, no one does social media better than KING 5

This April their team of super-savvy social media mavens are inviting SMLunch to their studios to give us all a behind the scenes sneak peak in to how these guys keep us all informed.

No SMLunch would be complete without some delicious fare to gather around. That’s why we’re excited to announce that the folks at Sam Choy’s Poke To The Max food truck will be on hand, serving up the freshest Big Island-inspired cuisine Seattle has ever tasted.

We’re also thrilled to be partnering with Northwest Harvest during this event. $5 of every ticket sold will go directly to Northwest Harvest to help them in their mission to stop hunger.

WOW! So much excitement packed into one lunch. Tell your friends, tweet it out and be sure to follow all our sponsors for real-time updates on the events in store.

Hope to see you there!

February may be giving way to March soon, but not without bringing everyone together for a very special SMLunch. This month we travel to Madrona where glassybaby opens it’s doors to the SMLunch crowd and gives us all a peak in to its impressive story and creative background. Did you know that to date glassybaby has donated over $1.8 million dollars to charities centered around healing – and they are on pace to hit the $2 million mark this March! A company deeply rooted in the power of community – glassybaby will also be showing guests how a glassybaby is made as artists will be blowing throughout the event.

And we all know networking and tweeting can’t be done on an empty stomach – that’s why our friends at Evergreens Salads in Seattle will be on site with an array of some of their freshest creations. Founders Todd and Hunter are committed to providing only the best of the best in sustainable and fresh ingredients for their customers – whom they affectionately treat as their family.

We can’t wait to meet new faces and see old ones as we end this month on a high note. Hope to see you all there!

Not sure what it is about Fall, but it sure makes us hungry. We’ve been craving warm and hearty comfort food and longing for a heaping side dish of networking too!

That’s why we are excited to announce the hosts of October’s SMLunch. As the world’s largest digital food brand, they really need no introduction. Allrecipes averages more than 30 million unique visitors each month and has been posting double-digit growth for the past seven years.

The digital prowess of Allrecipes goes beyond just uploading and sharing a recipe. Their 7+ million registered users are swapping tips and tricks about life in the kitchen, engaging in community conversations through their Buzz network, and sharing out photos and blog posts relating to the food world. Now this is a company you want to have at your dinner party….

But since this is lunch, let’s be their guests at their downtown Seattle offices and get social!

Tickets went on sale TODAY to be sure to visit Eventbrite to get yours! Oh, and tell your friends!

It’s Monday. Let’s be honest – it’s not the most popular day of the week for most. So what would make this Monday any different? Because today is the Monday before the return of SMLunch of course!

This Thursday SMLunch returns to Seattle, breaking a nearly two year hiatus. This time around we have the supremely awesome @CenturyLinkSea to thank for hosting us all at CenturyLink Field. With just over 100 local social media savvy networkers gathering, it is bound to be a great event. 

To get everyone just as pumped as we are, we thought we’d share a list of just some of those who will be in attendance at this Thursday’s SOLD OUT event. 

Also, for those of you asking about when the next schedule SMLunch will be, details will be announced this week, so stay tuned.

Hope to see you all there!
