Fresno Tweetup Goes Wild: the recap

A hearty thank you to everyone who helped us put together another fun Fresno Tweetup on Saturday night at Chaffee Zoo. It was our second Fresno Tweetup Goes Wild, but we also could have called it Fresno Tweetup Gets Sweaty. Heat aside, everybody seemed to have a great time, whether it was running around the zoo for our scavenger hunt, checking out Fierce Creatures playing in the Winged Wonders Amphitheatre or hopping in the photo booth.

We owe a big shout-out to Bee photog Craig Kohlruss for setting up the photo booth. FYI: You can hire him to bring the fun to your event. Get more details at If you want one of the pics, you can get them on our our Facebook page. Thanks also to our Scribble king, SW Parra, for his great caricatures.

Another round of thanks to the local businesses that provided prizes: Fulton 55, Twee Boutique, Rotary Storyland and Playland, Tower Theatre, Fresno Convention and Entertainment Center, Eureka! Burger, Twist, The Standard, Fresno Grizzlies and Fresno Greek Fest.

Congrats to the team of @EstevanLM and @akajudas, who won the inaugural Tweetup “Amazing Race” put on by Social Media Club Fresno. They’re crowned the kings of the local Twittersphere and they’ll have to defend their crown at the next Tweetup. They were actually very close to winning our Twitpic Scavenger Hunt too, but had to stop at 6 p.m. for the “Amazing Race.” Despite taking an hour off for that, they also finished third in the scavenger hunt. The scavenger hunt winner was their friend @LovelyLadyNessa with an assist from @GinaLara5 (all pictured below).


Finally, here’s a cool pic of Fierce Creatures playing at the zoo, courtesy of @tigermouth.
