Three Social Media Steps to Free Sangria at The Pierre Hotel

Calling all social media-philes! If you’re in Manhattan tomorrow, stop by Two E, the bar at The Pierre (on the southeast corner of Central Park) to celebrate Social Media Day. Just stopping by will score you $18 carafes, with five flavors available to you. If you put your social media panache to work, you could get a little more.

Here’s the deal:

  1. Somehow social media-ize the event: tweet it, blog it or slap something on your Facebook Wall
  2. Print a copy of your newly developed social media content
  3. Bring it with you to Two E

And, I have some other tips. Be sure to:

  1. Reference @ThePierreNY
  2. Use the hashtags #SangriaSocial and #SMDay
  3. Tweet this blog post (you can’t blame me for trying!)

The event runs from 6:30 PM to 9 PM at 2 E. 61st St (between 5th Ave and Madison). I’ll be there.

It’s about Blogging

I’m often asked how I can blog about as many topics as I do: travel, cigars, the art market, social media marketing, technology, finance and even reinsurance. The answer is really pretty simple. As much as I enjoy each of these disciplines (and I do), it really isn’t about the subject matter. At the end of the day, I’m a blogger first. I’d rather blog about anything than not be a blogger at all, and the thought of trading it all in for traditional journalism in any of these fields just doesn’t turn me on.

Content’s great … but blogging is where I live.
