ImageThe holidays are coming at us full speed which means we only have ONE MORE SMLunch before 2013 is in the review mirror!

We’re ending the year on a high-note by hosting a festive and fancy SMLunch event thanks to our friends at the World Trade Center Seattle. With stunning panoramic views of the Elliot Bay and the Olympic Mountains and freshly inspired cuisine, the World Trade Center is sure to be one of our most impressive venues yet.

For the price of your ticket, not only will you walk away with dozens of new contacts to connect with on and offline, but you will all be feasting on some of the best cuisine the WTC has to offer – check out the menu!

Vegetarian Tomato Alfredo Bisque

Grilled Chicken with Cranberry Chutney and Gorgonzola Cream OR Vegetarian White Bean and Red Garnet Yam Medallion, Cranberry Chutney and Gorgonzola Cream

Chocolate & Raspberry Tort

As an added treat, co-sponsor TalkingRain will be on hand serving up complimentary creative holiday mocktails made with their supremely popular Sparkling ICE beverages.

To top it all off, we have a few prizes to giveaway to some lucky attendees:

  • A night at the beautiful Edgewater Hotel
  • A bottle of DeLille Cellars D2 Bordeaux Style Red – 92 points from Robert Parker
  • Lunch for four at the World Trade Center Seattle

But what is lunch without a little networking? We encourage all veteran SMLunch attendees to bring a friend and introduce them to this fun and uniquely engaging event. To register, please visit Eventbrite and get your ticket today!

We hope to see you there,

Happy Hump Day everyone! We are T-Minus two weeks until the October SMLunch event and already 64 of you have purchased your tickets. This means there are still 6 tickets left so be sure to let your friends know there’s still a chance to attend.

We have been busy working with the folks at Allrecipes to brew up some amazing surprises for you all. Here’s just a taste in to what you’ll be experiencing:

We are SO excited to welcome back an SMLunch veteran and past-Emcee, Tracy Taylor from KING5 TV! She will be our lovely host for the day so be sure to tweet at her to let her know you can’t wait to meet her there – @King5TracyT

The culinary geniuses at Whole Foods Market have graciously sponsored lunch and will be providing a variety of goodies that will be sure to please your tastebuds!

Do you like giveaways!? How about a chance to win gift cards to Whole Foods Market, cooking gadgets and more goodies from Allrecipes!? You will get your chance!

And to top it all off, since Allrecipes is ridiculously excited to host you all, they will be gifting each attendee something  to take home!

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 last November is how SMLunch.com started. In January 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. 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!

If you are in, send me a Tweet @SeattleBlank to hold your spot. I’ll list Tweeter RSVPs below.
