We’re helping our customers to become among the first in Britain to unlock the highly-coveted ‘swarm badge’ on the latest social-networking phenomenon, Foursquare.
This prize is notoriously hard to unlock and can only be won when 50 or more users check in at the same place all within a short time of one another. This rare event is known around the world as a Foursquare flashmob.
Although there have been several swarm badge parties in the US – and at least one as close as Ireland – we think this could be the first in Britain.
An unsuccessful attempt at unlocking the swarm badge was made during April’s General Election ‘Leaders Debates’, where Gordon Brown, David Cameron and Nick Clegg went head-to-head-to-head. But we don’t know of any successful attempt – please tell us if we’re wrong.
The girls from Metrodeco tea shop are going to help this event along by offering the first 50 people to check in a free glass of bubbly as a reward for making the effort to get down to the event.
So all you have to do is pop in to Metrodeco at 6pm on Wednesday 28th of July, have a free drink and check-in. Of course you’ll be free to buy some cake, ice cream or sandwiches if you wish 🙂
