Happy foursquare Day!
Boston foursquarers are celebrating #4sqDayBoston by pub crawling and checking in to benefit The Greater Boston Food Bank. All ticket proceeds will be donated to The Food Bank. If you are roaming the Faneuil Hall bar scene for happy hour tonight, say hello to the foursquare pub crawlers for me. They should be easy enough to spot…just look for people who are constantly checking their smart phones.
Based on these tweets, it looks like the event is already a success!
Local advertising agency Allen & Gerritsen also celebrated the success of this popular location-based platform by inviting passionate foursquare users to a friendly game of old school foursquare in the Boston Common this afternoon.
Looking at this twitpic from @RSprung, there seems to be a heated discussion about the rules of foursquare. A&G, are you sure this event was to play foursquare and not to discuss strategies for client’s brands to leverage location-based services?
Although I did not play my FAVORITE childhood game in the common, I did avidly check into each place I stopped today. Hopefully, by the end of the night, I will be mayor of two of my favorite, local hangouts: Angora Café and Blue State Coffee.
