FreshBooks gets sunburnt on the West Coast

July 10, 2008


A new season of parties

Earlier this spring, we did an epic trip from Miami to Austin, between Future of Web Apps and SXSW. We called that trip FreshBooks Roadburn, complete with blog and often goofy videos.

Well, it’s a brand new season! This summer, we’re tearing our way up and down the West Coast in an epic ongoing summer party. Naturally, we’ve coined this FreshBooks Sunburn.

All good parties start in Canada

Just like we kicked of RoadBurn in Toronto, we had to kick of Sunburn in Vancouver. At the end of June, FreshBooks threw a massive BBQ with the help of customers Redwerks, makers of the web 3.0 layout tool Kommonwealth, and Vancouver social media PR maven Colleen Coplick of Type A PR. Thanks, guys! And thanks to Boris Mann for flipping burgers and Tris Hussey for driving us around.

In Seattle, it never rains on FreshBooks

Yesterday, we shipped Saul off to make a splash at BizJam in Seattle. He was having a good time there until this slide popped up in the middle of Marketing Mentor Ilise Benun’s presentation and reminded him that he can never be rid of me, even on the other side of the continent. Mwahahaha.

At least he has our customers to entertain him at FreshBooks Supper Club dinners in Seattle and Portland.

California Dreamin’

Of course, you can’t really hit the West Coast without heading down to Cali. We’ll be at Summermash San Francisco and Los Angeles. And we’re sponsoring the ultra cool Twiistup in Los Angeles. I always wanted to feel a little Hollywood, and now is my chance!

Don’t miss our Tweet Up Happy Hour this Monday, July 14 from 8-10pm at the 21st Amendment Restaurant in the San Francisco Mission District (map).

The sun never sets on FreshBooks

Is this the end? Heck no! We’ll be doing round two around Gnomedex in Seattle, August 21-23, 2008. Get your tanning lotion ready. As the governor of California would say, we’ll be back!
