After a great night’s sleep with our Rejuvenations pillows and continental breakfast, it was back to the Miami Beach Convention Center for day two of SheCon.
The day started off with a panel aptly titled “The Women of Social Media“. Panelists included Lucretia Pruitt, Aliza Sherman and Rachel Masters who are pioneers of social media. They were down to earth, interesting and I’m now a fan!
We attended Writing Comedy in a Landscape Dominated by Men (Like Us) presented by Oren Katzoff and Jack O’Brien from Cracked.com. Afterwards, they autographed copies of their book, You Might Be a Zombie and Other Bad News: Shocking but Utterly True Facts.
The only other session I made it too was a panel presentation titled, Get Connected which included a PR executive, blogger and brand manager (Stephanie Azzarone, Linda Sherman and Stephanie Camargo respectively). They had lots of tips on what to do and NOT to do when working with brands.
We skipped out on the late afternoon sessions to get a much-needed rest back at the hotel.
Melrose and I didn’t want to have a second meal in the food court so we took advantage of a free ride by Chevy within the local area. We went to the nearby Jerry’s Famous Deli which seems to be a transplant from New York City. The menu is huge and so are the servings!
I ordered a hot open faced turkey sandwich that came with mashed potatoes, stuffing an cranberries.
Melrose had a meatball sandwich with fries. Both were delicious and we couldn’t finish them.
It was too hot for us to walk back to the convention center so we grabbed a cab to hit the expo hall before the afternoon sessions.
Cravelocal had cakepops and cupcakes. Someone we managed to find room for a sweet! The real draw was the 2 pm drawing of the Funbath from American Standard. The winner had to be present to win. First one name was called. No response. Then the second name and no response. Next…
My name was called! I won the Funbath of my choice.
After my second big win in two days, I really should have bought a lotto ticket! Fortunately, I didn’t have to transport it home.
We got to the latter part of the hotel sponsored happy hour for a drink where I chatted with Lee and Paul from The Relationship Blog. Then it was time to hit the game night sponsored by Calliope Games and Northstar Games.
We played a round of Turuso with a group and enjoyed appetizers and a beverage. These games are fun and an inexpensive entertainment option for friends and family.
We visited the Sassy Suite again so I could have another glass of Purple Cowboy before dinner. This is where we met Laurita who blogs at Holdin’ Out for a Hero and her mom. Afterwards, we walked across the street to the Catalina Hotel for dinner on the outside patio.
That was the night for us!
