Francisco Jose Palacio just checked-in @ Sushi-Yama – BEST Chirashi ever had in this lifetime; FRESHEST Ginger, MODERN and unassuming decor, are some of the reasons I’m glad I’m so CLOSE to this BEST japanese -ever!… did I say best and ever already?

I was there tonight too! Just posted how we ran into a couple of friends there and ended up eating with them! Too funny. Our first time there and, yes, it was really yummy!

@ LS

Wait!

Were you on a table with four gals and four guys? eight people total?… definitely sounded like a “run-in” kind of deal, as the conversation was so lively, with overtones of “catching up”… … See More

We were on the booth across!!! jejeje!… this all happened after 2130 EDT? (930p?)

Amazing!… and that gives me a perfect segue for Stephen’s query…

@ SH

Above illustrates one of the functions of FourSquare; when we all check in [AHEM, AHEM TO LS!] then the app/site is supposed to facilitate FTF’s (Face to Face’s) as it notifies friends that are at the SAME location.

Which is PRECISELY what has made it so interesting, this whole new ‘sphere’ of Location-Based Services; Gowalla I heard was first, then came FourSquare, and from the look of things, Dr. Schmidt’s hordes are paying attention – and cash, as I hear they were buying Yelp!, the first-to-market (and the one with the largest database of reviews and people, hence the largest established community)

[LOOKS… THREE PARAGRAPHS… YUP… BLOG & EXAMINER-WORTHY!]

So… makes sense now?… and al-So… mind if I blog about this?

Think it illustrates what the service is ALL about – well, besides us Crowd-Sourcers giving away a few minutes filling out these for a few ‘points’ and the ‘illusion’ of authority they vest you with, as in FourSquare the ‘game’ part is taken care of by badges, points, stars – and a future ‘mayorship’ if you’re the one that hits a certain place the most within 60 days or so, yadda, yadda, yadda…

Yup, word count fits… blog-worthy!….

Anyone else?

C-ya!

#InCaseYouMissedIt: @ExaminerCom: #SoFresh Tampa: February 8th, Calling All Local Social Media Pros & Marketers

8 Jan

This note was originally posted on Examiner.Com

This is a quick post based on a Facebook Event created this morning to invite/rally Locals to attend the closest iteration of the Social Fresh Event in Tampa… based on earlier articles posted here, I’m sure y’all can see the value in terms of Networking, Learning and Face-to-Face interaction with those pushing the envelope in the industry…
First I tweeted out the event…
  • Via #FB: http://bit.ly/5wP71Y for #SoFla Locals (I.e. #SMCSFL, #SMCPBC and #MMS Tweeps) attend @SoFresh Tampa 02/08/10 (Either Carpool/Bus?)
And the event page on Facebook actually reads.

Hola!

Are you heading to Tampa for #SoFresh on February 8th?

We are trying to rally a few locals here in SoFla to see if we can either carpool, or better yet, hire a bus to take us back and forth, ought to be more affordable than staying there overnight; hafta leverage the proximity, right?

Don’t know what SoFresh is? Cruise was a BLAST, and this ought to be too!

** Social Fresh Website at: http://socialfresh.com/tampa/

**When?

Monday, February 8th, 2010

7am to 6:30pm +/- Happy Hour

**Where?

Doubletree Hotel Tampa Westshore

So I hope this is a good, advance notice, a sort of “New Year’s Resolution” for those working in the field…
Saludos!
