NFL Draft party Writer Meet-up in NYC: It’s gonna be huge
If you’re a Bleacher Report writer, you’ll want to be at this month’s Writer Meet-up in New York City.
It figures to be the best party yet for Bleacher Report writers. We’ll be holding it in conjunction with B/R’s live coverage of Day Three of the NFL Draft on Saturday, April 27, at the Stadium Grill at Bowlmor Lanes, Times Square.
Show up in the gear of your favorite NFL team (I’ll be in my Steven Jackson Rams jersey, kind of sobbing) so you can cheer and boo for their picks. B/R Lead Writers Matt Miller, Aaron Nagler, Josh Zerkle and Michael Felder will be anchoring video coverage of the draft, and you just might be part of the show. You may have to stop chewing the amazing free food and put down your free drink for a second if one of them sticks a microphone in your face and asks you what you think of your team’s draft so far.
Of course you’re welcome to stop by the party during the first two days of the draft Thursday and Friday—RSVP for that here, first come, first served—but Saturday is just for B/R writers. It’s VIP time. Every attendee will get a B/R gift bag in the form of a drawstring bag, with a bunch more Bleacher Report goodies inside. And we really want you there by noon, when the draft coverage begins, so everyone in the door by 11:55 will also get a B/R sweatshirt and be entered in a raffle for a GoPro Hero3 White Edition camera.
We had about 100 people at the New York meet-up last year. It was the biggest meet-up ever, and we’re hoping this one will top that. A whole bunch of B/R staffers will be on hand, including me, so it’ll be a great chance for you to talk to us and get the inside scoop on Bleacher Report.
RSVPs are mandatory this time. If your name’s not at the door, you’re not going to get in. Drop me a line if you want to come to the big deal on Saturday.
