Welcome to #AAN2011

Posted By on Thu, Jul 21, 2011 at 10:32 AM


Well, hi, Association of Alternative Newsweeklies annual convention, and welcome to New Orleans. It's been too long. You're certainly looking well. Lost weight? Well, whatever you're doing, keep it up.

Sorry to be distracted hosts, but while you're conventioneering in downtown New Orleans today, we're working to get the paper out. You can get your own drinks, can't you? Meanwhile, here's some smartphone downloads and other stuff to help you navigate the city:

Gambit staffers will be around the convention sites, wearing red T-shirts with our logo on the front. We'll be glad to help you out with anything you need. We also accept drinks, compliments and propositions of all kinds.

• Download the Gambit app (iPad only) for listings, club times, bars, etc.

• Download the official #AAN2011 conference app. It has a schedule, social media feeds, etc. etc. Here it is for iPhone, Android and BlackBerry.

• Download Forkfly, our local deals app — Forkfly brings you local deals, but without having to register, go through any rigamarole or bring naive merchants to tears and bankruptcy. Just start Forkfly and let the GPS tell you what deals are nearby for the taking.

Follow us on Twitter at @The_Gambit. And the official Twitter hashtag for the convention is #AAN2011.

See you out there soon.
