November Meet-Up Benefitting Sweet On a Cure!

In November, we’re going to take the opportunity to support UAB’s Sweet on a Cure campaign with our meet-up!SweetOnACure

Sweet on a Cure takes place November 8 – 14, where bakeries, cafes, restaurants and catering companies across the Birmingham area will be selling specially designated sweets and donating 100 percent of the proceeds to the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) Comprehensive Cancer Center. The funds raised from this fun and exciting event will support leading-edge cancer research at the Cancer Center.

So we will be meeting at one of the participating restaurants, Urban Standard, on Friday, November 12th at 11:30am. And what better excuse to order dessert than that 100% of the proceeds going to Cancer Research??

The address for Urban Standard is:

2320 2nd Ave N
Birmingham, AL 35203

Everyone is welcome – and yes, we have many attenders that are more tweet more than they blog, so please help pass the word around Twitter! The hashtag is #AlaBlogMeet.

We always have a fabulous time visiting, so we’d love to see you there!

Be sure to RSVP if you plan on coming so we can save you a seat, but feel free to still come at the last minute as well.

Hope to see you there!

p.s. – If you’d like to guest host (which just means choosing the location and date and committing to being there) the December, January, February or March Meet-Up, please let me know! I’ll have a new baby, so I’ll need all the help I can get!

This is fantastic! Thanks for helping Sweet on a Cure.

Count me in, please. And folks, don't be late: Urban Standard gets crazy busy at lunchtime.

Finally one I'm able to attend! :) I'll be there!

I may have to try to attend this one... and isn't there something else going on later in the night, I thought I read on the blog earlier, some hand made shopping event?

I would be MORE than happy to host meet ups, but I am in Huntsville. Don't know if folks would be willing to travel up north or not. Would LOVE to have ya'll up here though.
