Meetup 202 At Gotham Steakhouse

Meetup 202

Vancouver held its first ever Meetup 202 at Gotham Steakhouse last night. The informal gathering brings affiliate marketers, want to be affiliate marketers and affiliate networks together for an evening of face to face networking. The event was organized by local affiliate marketer, David Jeffries. Nearly 40 people crowded into a private meeting room in the basement of Gotham to share marketing ideas and enjoy the complimentary appetizers from Neverblue Ads.

After the meet up, we got a table upstairs at the Gotham dinning room so we could dine of their big juicy steaks. Gotham is far and away the best steakhouse in Vancouver. Normally, I order the Porterhouse when dine there but since I was pretty full from all those appetizers, I went with the smaller Filet Mignon instead. It was one of the most tender steaks I’ve ever had. I also got a chance to test out the built in video light on my Canon Vixia HF S100.

Thanks goes out to Neverblue Ads for supplying the appetizers for the meet up and for inviting us to dinner after. We had a great time. Meetup 202 happens in 20 cities across the United States and Canada. Sign up for the next Vancouver Meetup 202 here.

          Are there women online? I suspect there are but the numbers seem so small that it can be surprising when one actually exists. Maybe thats the campain john needs to promote.

          You should have a gravitar, it’ll help with seeming authentic when you say so. Plus everyone should have a gravitar.

          1. Jake Stone says:

            Hovering over this topic of steaks, the gravitar is actually a term for the first too large tartar steak to be stored under saddle. That tartar was so huge that it broke the horse’s back, sending the rider through the air, gravitating towards ground, hence the name.

          2. Yeah, I keep meaning to set one up. I have a Gravatar account with my actual name though.

      You sure recognize good food when you see it. That steak was my muse to fix up soy sugar grill ribs today. Tomorrow it’s time for open fire beer can grill chicken. Tasty and good for cholesterol.
