#4sqDay in Seattle

Happy #4sqDay everyone!

This year for 4sqDay we’ve got a lot of fun things planned for you Seattle. Monday evening you’ll want to come out to Belltown Pub between 5-7. If you haven’t RSVP’d you can do so here: http://www.meetup.com/foursquare/Seattle-WA/596132/

Just like last year, we’ve got an awesome set of prizes to give away so upon arriving, check into Belltown Pub on Foursquare. Be sure to show the 4sqSeattle team that you’re checked in and pick up your raffle ticket along with a bracelet giving you happy hour prices all day. Don’t forget to use the hash tag #4sqDaySEA so your check in be seen on the live twitter stream we’ll have going. Also, you’ll want to include the hash tag #Bing4sq to be entered into their contest (info below).

The first 50 people checking in will receive a Seattle 4sqDay t-shirt (no guarantee on sizes so the earlier the better!) BONUS: The first 5 people who check in wearing LAST YEAR’s 4sqDay shirt will receive a special goodie bag.

Then, head to the bar and grab a drink and/or order some food. Belltown Pub has awesome beers on tap, talented bartenders to mix up your favorite drinks and a great food menu.

If you are taking pics or tweeting about the event, you’ll want to use the hash tag #4sqDay in your posts. Foursquare and the 4sqDay blog will be selecting content to be featured on their blogs.
