Looking forward to tonight’s episode of our podcast from Podcast Detroit, as we’re joined by Seven Point Two Tours and Vault of Midnight. Learn about bar crawls and adventures you can take downtown, as well as the thoughts behind running a comic book shop downtown. We’ve also got some updates about upcoming podcasts, including a holiday shift and upcoming guests, and of course the usual round of news, events and updates that have caught our eyes over the past week. We’ve got our July networking event set and ready to go, which means our next Pink Slip Party event is coming up soon and it’s time to open the gates for a few companies who want to sponsor, and a whole bunch of other fun and excitement…
As always, we start with our next upcoming in-person networking event. On Thursday, July 21 we’ll be upstairs at Firebird Tavern downtown. Great place, and we’ve loved the events we’ve done there thus far, and can’t wait for everyone to come out for another one.
Details for that event…and all of the others we do…can be found here on the site – http://www.itinthed.com/meet/, on our Facebook page – https://www.facebook.com/ITinTheD, or in our Meetup group – http://www.meetup.com/ITintheD/
Looking forward to seeing everyone there.
As noted above, our next Pink Slip Party event is just around the corner. These are significantly larger than our monthly casual events and have seen over 1,000 people show up. We started accepting sponsors for these a few years ago when we had to move to larger venues downtown in order to handle the crowds that showed up, but we still deliberately limit participation to four companies just to cover the costs. Our sponsors are the only ones with a table and larger presence at the event, and over the years, it seems to work out well for them. Drop us a note and let’s talk about getting you setup: http://www.itinthed.com/contact-us/
We’ve got Seven Point Two Tours coming in, and they do a great job getting people downtown and around the area with bar crawls, special tours, and all sorts of other great events that you totally need to know more about.
Vault of Midnight is also joining us, and we’ll dive into what it’s been like so far opening and running a comics store downtown – how things are going, what’s on the horizon for them, and what’s going on that you need to know.
We’ll be talking with them, about our upcoming events, our timeshift for next week’s episode and more.
…as always, you should listen live to hear it all…and as we keep telling you, you’d do well to grab the Podcast Detroit app for Android or iOS and listen that way. You can find those apps here: http://www.podcastdetroit.com/how-to-listen/ The app was just recently updated to make finding out information about new shows, as well as catching show archives, a lot easier.
The mics go live starting at 9pm, and we hope you join us.
You can also catch any of our episodes you may have missed over at http://www.itinthed.com/listen/it-in-the-d-show-archives/, including last week’s over at http://www.itinthed.com/18827/episode-149-united-shore-visit-detroit/
Also on the podcast front, want to hear something fun? We kicked off “Worst Meatball Sandwich Ever”: Vegans who go to classy steak joints and whine about the lack of non-meat options. People who go to dive bars and are stunned they can’t get bottle service. Idiots who go to a brewery and are mad they can’t get a Bud Light. You know who they are…and so does the crew behind Worst Meatball Sandwich Ever Podcast, and they’re going to hold these special little snowflakes up to the harsh light of reality and hopefully have a few laughs along the way.
