Off Topic: SB Nation Tampa Bay meet up on 6-23-2010

SB Nation Regional Logo

Some of you may already be aware of things, but SB Nation launched regional site hubs earlier this week.  Big news story and coverage of the move was in the New York Times.

OK, that's all right and good, so what does this have to do with  you, the reader?

With each hub launch, which has been staggered between Monday and June 30th, there are accompanying meet-and-greet launch parties being held in all 20 markets that will host regional hubs.  

And Tampa Bay just happens to be one of them.

On June 23rd, at the Tampa Bay Brewing Company in Tampa, get to know other SB Nation members in person in a meet and greet scheduled to run from 6 PM until 8 PM.  This is your chance to put faces with (screen names) and talk sports with the people you regularly interact with on Tampa Bay sites like DraysBayBuc'emVoodoo Five and of course Raw Charge.

We've even posted the event on Facebook so you can RSVP and let the world know you are attending or not.
