Monday, April 16 is Foursquare Day. People will gather all around the world to celebrate this social media holiday inspired by the popular location-based social networking platform.
Here are three #4SQDay party options (in alphabetical order) for those in the DC and Baltimore metro areas.
The Best Foursquare Day in Charm City will be taking place from 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm at Bad Decisions (1928 Fleet Street) in Baltimore, Maryland.
The event is hosted by Joe Zuccaro (@joezuc) and along with the door prizes, they even have their own Foursquare Day specialty drink, “The Square Root“!
Last year, I had the pleasure of attending the Montgomery County Foursquare Day 2011 party and as much fun as that was, this year’s party looks set to top it! The MoCo crew will be returning in force to Dogfish Head Alehouse (800 West Diamond Avenue) in Gaithersburg, Maryland.
The event is organized by Ching-Yao Yu (@nutzareus) will feature $4.16 beer specials, raffle prizes, and of course foursquare swag! Gaithersburg mayor Sidney Katz, will once again be in attendance to proclaim Foursquare Day.
Rounding out the festivities will be the launch of the Social Media Club Gaithersburg Chapter (
@SMCgburg) with guest speakers Shannon Renee Mouton (@ShannonRene) “Top Ten Reasons We Check-in” and Ann Bevans-Selig (@annbevans) “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly: Foursquare Wins and Losses for Business”.
