Next week(Tuesday, June 22nd), SBNation Philly will launch. If you haven't heard anything about this new regional site initiative, you can read more about it in The New York Times, Harvard Journalism Lab, Dan Shanoff, PR Newswire, & SBNation,com. If you want a good example of what the site will look like when it goes live, check out the DC regional site.
It should be exciting. I think you're going to really like the lineup of contributors we've got(maybe even surprised by a few...) and you'll love the new technology. But first... A celebration!
The folks at SBNation are throwing a kickoff party Tuesday, June 22nd from 5:00 - 8:00 PM at The Field House . The Field House is at 1150 Filbert St. in Philadelphia. They've got a bunch of drink and food specials for us, so we should have a great time. I went to the launch of New York site last week, it was very well attended and we all had a great time. Just ask JimmyK who showed up as well! That said, we aren't going to let New York outdo us.
I know we've all been discussing a meet up event at training camp or elsewhere... so let's do it now! Next Tuesday. Meet me, each other, and whoever else might show up!
Also, these launch events are happening all over the country. So if you're a displaced Eagles fan let me know where you are and I'll tell you if there's an event in your neck of the woods.
