One of the highlights of the trip to New Orleans had to be the unofficial CSZ/Cards fans gathering at Pat O’Brien’s on Bourbon Street! It was a mixture of CSZ members, friends, and twitter followers. Like the rest of the town, Pat O’Brien’s was dominated by Cards fans!
It started when Scott, the guy who runs Pat O’Brien’s twitter handle, tweeted at CSZ that they hoped to see us there for hurricanes, which is their famous drink. I tweeted back and said that maybe he would, and that it would be cool for our site to have some kind of get together there with other Cards fans.
After e-mailing and texting back and forth over the next day or so, I went in and met Scott and we agreed that it would be cool to get fans together on the day of the game, as kind of a meeting place to start the day off. So I went to work on that. I tweeted out the info and told all of my friends that had made the trip, and we made it happen.
A group of my friends met there for some hurricanes, and CSZ members Jeremy and Paige showed up as well. Paige brought some of her friends, we had twitter followers (@Beast502Mode and punkingirl138) even show up to meet us. I got there too late for this, but @CrumsRevenge and @UofLSheriff50 from CardsandCats.com even showed up to support the fan gathering.
It was a good time and a great start to what was an even better evening. I want to thank Scott from Pat O’Brien’s for meeting with me and helping out with this idea.
Here are some photos and video from our “event”. Go Cards!
