Happy Bleet-Up Day!

Oh I love you, Hipstamatic.

Tonight is the big night!! Richard and I are SO EXCITED to show you everything we’ve put together for this special occasion.  And I know you bloggers are pumped about Republic of Austin‘s Austin Blogger Awards, being presented tonight at The Bleet-Up too.

A few TIPS to ensure your Bleet-Up experience is absolutely grand:

1. Arrive early!  Doors are at 7:00pm.  Last year at Mohawk there were lines, and nobody likes lines. Plus…

2. Beer!  Live Oak Brewery will be there tonight.  And if you get there early you will be happy you did!  Early arrivals drink free beer ’til it runs out, then we switch over to cash bar ($3/cup).

3. BYOAwesome. This is the cool thing about partying on top of a grocery store. While our kegs and bands will say goodbye to you at 10:30pm, the party will continue long after that on the roof.  So if you’d like to grab a beer, a six-pack, a bottle of wine, etc. from the regular store part of WF and bring it upstairs to enjoy past 10:30, that is a-ok my friend.   Just grab it before store close — 10:00 — and you’re all set.

PS. I think Whole Foods sells single-serve champagne in a pink can. If so I’m definitely getting it.

4. Have a BLAST. Seriously. Richard and I saw the Whole Foods terrace last night y’all, and it’s ridonkulous. By which I mean, totally gorgeous and beautiful. We are so grateful to have Whole Foods host this for us!

I know my levels of enthusiasm are getting obnoxious at this point.  But really, it’s so surreal to me that The Bleet-Up TONIGHT.  Totally cray cray!  You’ll see many bloggers, blog readers out there, and friendly faces out there tonight, and here is a small sampling.

Come find me and say hi to me when you get there. I promise to be smiling.
see you tonight!
