The “Back to School” Tumblr Meetup last night was amazing! Ipanema was the perfect venue- Tumblr users socialized at the bar, got cozy in booths, and relaxed on the patio. Chef Will completely blew our minds with the menu: All of our childhood favorites, gone vegetarian! Treats were served on plastic cafeteria-style trays, in case you thought they didn’t go all out with the theme. Even the bar got into it! Gabe created some specialty drinks for the occasion that ran out due to popularity before the night ended.
Tumblr users ranged from just-moved-into-the-dorms-Freshmen to Richmond veterans with equally varying blog subjects, and it was awesome meeting you! Please tag your photobooth photos with #rvameetup so we can find them!
Huge thank yous to Kendra and the Ipanema Crew, and everyone who came to hang out with us! We’ll see you at the next meetup!

Tumblr Meetup Part One.
Celebrate the Back to School season with drinks and light appetizers at Ipanema Cafe!
EDIT: We will be carding at the door and only 21+ will receive drink tickets, but everyone is invited!
A Great Time Was Had By All
Tonight’s meetup at The Belvidere at Broad was a wonderful chance to get to know some of our fellow Tumblr bloggers here in Richmond. Many thanks to David and Julie Hassen for hosting us. And, a thank you to all the bloggers who turned out, including:
Richmond, Va. Tumblr Meetup on 12/16
The third Richmond, Virginia Tumblr meetup will be held on Wednesday, December 16th at The Belvidere at Broad at 6 p.m.
In addition to being a great restaurant and bar, The Belvidere is also on Tumblr. The owners, David and Julie Hassen, have graciously offered to let us gather there. And, there will be free Tumblr stickers and pins for all!
Please reblog this post to help spread the word about the meetup. And, please let us know in your reblog if you plan to attend. Hope to see you then!
First Richmond Meetup a Success
Eleven people attended the first Tumblr meetup tonight in Richmond, Virginia. That’s quite respectable for a city of our size just getting into meetups. (We did cheat a bit by having two people come from Williamsburg and one from Newport News.)
Sadly, it was too dark at Commercial Taphouse to take any decent photos. But, rest assured dear readers that much beer was consumed and a good time was had by all.

Thanks to everyone who attended. I hope that we can have another Richmond meetup sometime in the near future!
