The idea was born out of a back-and-forth between @fstop23, @torie007, @anaperiodista, and @oakmonster about food.  With so many cooks/foodies in our midst, why not have a potluck?

So…welcome to our first potluck Tweet Up!

Tweet Up Party!

Tweet Up Party!

Gregg/@fstop23 has kindly offer up this residence for us to hold our first ever potluck.  Given, it’s in Anaheim, not Long Beach, but hey, we’ll take any venue offered!

What: LBC Tweet Up Potluck

When: Saturday, June 6 – 4 p.m. onward

Where: Gregg’s place – State College & Katella (Angels Stadium / Grove area).  We will have access to a nice, large community room, kitchen area, pool table with the pool/jacuzzi outside with BBQ grills.

For privacy/security purposes, we will email you the actual address once you sign up for the potluck.

Please RSVP below and make sure to put your email address down. An EVITE with Gregg’s address will be sent to you once you sign up here. You will be able to see the attendee list and what everyone is bringing. Or email me at oakmonster at gmail.

If you have signed up here before @torie007 but haven’t received your Evite, please let me know.
