Social Media Meetup on Oct. 1

LEWISTON — The next Lewiston/Auburn Social Media Meetup will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 1, at Marche Kitchen & Wine Bar, 40 Lisbon St.

“We are excited about having our first meet-up this fall season at the newly renovated Marche Kitchen & Wine Bar” says meet-up founder, Larry Gilbert Jr. “Meet-ups are a great event for interacting and growing one’s social media profile while also bringing attention to new restaurant ventures in the Twin Cities.”

The group holds regular social events at locally owned restaurants and bars in the Twin Cities. Gilbert founded the group in 2013 as a way for participants to get off their smart phones and tablets for a bit and cultivate face-to-face conversations and connections with others involved in social media such as Facebook and Twitter.

All events are 21-plus and free to the public.
