Unemployed? Broke? I have just the thing for you! Blog’N’Drink: An ASSME Day Party.
What is ASSME you ask? Their credo states, â€œASSME, the American Society of Shitcanned Media Elites, is a collective of experienced writers and editors, designers, illustrators and random others, unmoored by the untimely death of print, who have banded together out of a shared belief in the future of journalism.â€ They continue, â€œWe believe in the power of the written word, whatever the delivery system. We also believe in its value. We wish to write, to inform and to entertain, and to thereby attract readers. And advertisers. And money. When we get our mitts on this grubby lucre, we aim to share it among ourselves (each according to his page views), and thereby live to fight, and write, another day. We want to make it rain.â€
ASSMEE, just like us folks here at Broke Ass Stuart, believe that just because your broke, doesn’t mean you can’t have a good time. Whether you are a writer turned blogger, advertising exec turned bartender, student, or just straight chillin on unemployment, if you are free tomorrow, ASSME is throwing a little shindig for all you non nine-to-fivers. There will be drink specials flowing from 12PM-6PM – that is six hours of straight daytime boozing. Bring your laptop though, because you know there will be live blogging, twittering, and facebooking from the event. These are media people after all. Since the organizers of this event are also broke, you can expect some great deals. How does ½ off EVERYTHING sound? C’mon its not like you have anything else to do….When your not too busy shoving your face with $2.00 chicken wings or $3 Stellas, feel free to network, send our your resume, and maybe do something productive.
You can RSVP off Facebook, naturally.
