Nokia sponsored a wonderful time for us at Cinema Restaurant in Vancouver for Social Media Week Vancouver 2011

Tom Hall and Kathy Garfield welcomed us warmly to our fun filled evening!   Connecting with old friends like Daniel of Nokia Love blog and Shane Gibson made our time extra special!

Highlight of the evening was when our dear friend Miraj Khaled was the lucky winner of a fabulous Nokia N8 for being the eighth person to arrive at our tweetup!

Nokia truly connects people! We had a very memorable evening socializing with our friends :)

Thanks Nokia for sponsoring such a wonderful event during Social Media Week 2011 in Vancouver!
