UPDATE: Hey everyone, i’ve had a lot of interest and a lot of comments from folks about the Vegas party, and even some offers of sponsorship from a few companies including Seibei, Design By Humans, 2Smart Monkeys, t-shirt forums, and Gunslinger design plus a couple of others via email. Well I think i’ve got to scale back my ambitions a little bit as work is totally overwhelming me right now (yes I have a full time job), and i think a month was too short a time to try and organize this in a remote city. That being said i am planning on being in Vegas on November 3rd, and plan on being at the Mix Lounge in the Mandalay Bay between 8 and 10 on saturday night so if you swing by and introduce your self I will certainly buy you a couple of drinks, hows that sound Lets call it a t-shirt happy hour (although Mix says no “sleeveless shirts” so no wife beaters).
3950 S. Las Vegas Blvd.
Las Vegas, NV 89119
NOTE: to RSVP leave a comment and include your real name if you want the threadless certificate, they will be handed out at the door, and if you’re really into it Digg the story.
UPDATE: Moved the date to November 3rd due to Halloween conflicts
So here’s the idea guys, i’m planning a trip to vegas to celebrate my birthday on Saturday November 3rd
October 27th and it struck me that I might be able to organize a bigger party in Vegas related to T-shirts.
Here’s what I will throw into the pot i’ll put $1200 from tcritics ad revenue that I will contribute to the bar of where ever we end up going. I will also give a threadless gift certificate to at least the first 40 RSVP’s
buy the first 100 people to RSVP their choice of threadless t-shirt with my streetteam points (gift cert will be between $25 and $50). What i’m looking for is a few companies to sponsor the party and help me organize it in return they will get some exclusive advertising on my site, and will of course be heavily featured in the various blogging about how this event develops. I’m thinking the party could include a t-shirt fashion show, some give aways, some competitions etc.
I was thinking about staying in the Luxor as it seems to have some great rates that weekend, and it’s a pretty cool place. As for where the party should actually be, open to suggestions.
So what can you do? If you’re free that weekend and you want to hobnob in Vegas with people obsessed with t-shirts just RSVP by leaving a comment (make sure you fill in the email address field with a real email so I can keep you updated and add you to the evite and you’re real name which willl be on the list), and let me know what threadless shirt you would like and what size (i’ve got to buy them all in one go so pick one that will be in stock, otherwise i’ll get the size in another shirt). I plan to hand them out at the party.
What do you guys think, leave a comment if you think this is too crazy to work, or just crazy enough it might work. Obviously leave a comment if you want to talk about sponsorship as well, cheers.
