Handshake 2.0’s Anniversary Party 2.0

Handshake 2.0's second anniversary party! Handshake 2.0 launched on July 28, 2008.

With gratitude and thanks to our Handshake clients, we're going to celebrate two years in business.

To celebrate Handshake 2.0's second anniversary, we're holding a Foursquare Swarm Badge Party 2.0 (we tried 1.0 earlier this year) – in Blacksburg, Virginia - 50 people, same location, same time, all on Foursquare - on July 28, 2010 at Bull & Bones in Blacksburg, Virginia.

You're invited!

Handshake 2.0 is honored that the Blacksburg, Virginia office of Hutchison Law Group, headed by Ken Maready, is co-sponsoring the event with us.

Since the theme is 2.0, we're "doubling down."  For our 1.0 attempt to earn a Fousquare Swarm Badge, we offered a free beverage to the first 50 people to arrive and check in on Foursquare.  This time we're offering two free beverages to the first 50 to arrive and check in on Foursquare.  If you're not on Foursquare, we'll give you a ticket for one free beverage. 🙂

Not on Foursquare?  If you'd like to be, here's where to get started.
