My theory is that you should never eat lunch alone. Why? Well, you just never know what things you can do or discuss that can change the world during lunch. This theory combined with a Tweet that @JJtweets, @CityofRenton and @BMW shared with me (@SeattleBlank) last November is how SMLunch.com started. In January 2010, about 30 of us met up at Five Guys in Renton for a social networking lunch. In March, about 30 of us met up at Seastar at 2200 Westlake in Seattle’s South Lake Union neighborhood. In June, about 75 of us met up at the Fairmont Olympic’s Georgian. And now we’re heading east for the first ever SMLunch Tweetup in Issaquah featuring @Swedish.

There is no formal program. It is straight up personal with a ton of networking opportunities! Register.

This time around we have partners –@TheCohoCafe, href=”http://www.twitter.com/molr1″>@Molr1, @Swedish and the Sammamish Chamber of Commerce. Why Issaquah? Well @Swedish is opening a new Medical Office Building and hospital there. Swedish wants to tell you more about it. Plus @Molr1 and @TheCohoCafe are rock star Tweeters.

The Coho Cafe is preparing a nice $15 pre-fixe lunch for us Tweeters that will include a Non-Alcoholic refillable beverage of choice as well as some special Social Media type touches – stay tuned. There is a REAL good chance your lunch will be on one of our partners! But you will not know unless you come! First 60 people to RSVP here will be listed as guests. RSVP now.

Go here for a full list of attendees.

The next social media lunch meetup is now scheduled for Wednesday, June 23rd at noon.

And we’re lunching it with @FairmontOlympic. Why there? Well Heather Fernandez, the gal behind the Fairmont’s Twitter handle, is doing a fantastic job and we had lunch last month to talk about this idea. And did you know that The Georgian (the restaurant in the hotel where we’ll meet up) has an Express Lunch for $15?!?!?! High class gourmet food for only $15 and it includes soup, salad, sandwich and dessert!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Four courses for $15!?!?! AND…for our lunch… they’ll comp your VALET PARKING!!

Who is in?
I know that @SeattleBlank and @fairmontolympic are in for sure!
