Houston’s Social Media Week events

COHouston has organized a few events next week for Social Media Week. Though Houston isn’t part of the official events for this worldwide “conference,” there will be a few events locally.

Social Media Week Houston Kick-Off at OKRA
OKRA Charity Bar (924 Congress, Houston, TX, 77002)

Kick off Social Media Week Houston (#SMWHOU) with us at OKRA Charity Bar on Monday, February 18, from 5pm to 7pm.

With this year’s theme — “Open & Connectedness: Principles for a Collaborative World” — could there be any more perfect place for the kick-off than OKRA? Even Stephen Colbert thinks it rocks:! 100% of the Charity Bar’s proceeds are donated to a different Houston-based non-profit each month. Join us to vote for February’s beneficiary!

Marfreless (2006 Peden St Houston, TX 77019)

#PARTYTIME! That’s right, Houston. It’s Social Media Week and Black Sheep is ready to party IRL. What better way to celebrate #SMW13 than with a good ol’ fashioned Black Sheep Shin-Dig? We’re meeting up offline and getting it ONLINE. Mix and mingle with some of Houston’s brightest thinkers, drinkers, Facebookers and Tweeters for an evening of 100% SFW fun. And you know what that means – happy hour drink specials, free apps (the food kind!), photo booth hilarity and prizes for the most competitive hashtagger.

No need to DM us for the deets – follow the hashtag #SMWShinDig for everything you need to know. It’ll be trending before you know it!
