SBN-Cleveland is now LIVE! You can check it out now!! Also, be sure to come join us tonight at Great Lakes Brewing Co. for the Launch Party/Meet and Greet! It should be a great time. Click on any of the RSVP links below to find out more!
To see the evolution of SB Nation over such a short period of time is remarkable. SB Nation is receiving recognition in the mainstream media business outlets, such as from the Nieman Journalism Lab, the New York Times, and an especially interesting article from Dan Shanoff.
There might be some confusion as to exactly what the regional sites are intended to accomplish. First off, the most important thing to understand is that they will not replace the die-hard team-specific content that you will find on a Dawgs By Nature, Fear the Sword, or Let's Go Tribe. Instead, I believe the regional site is intended to appeal to the casual fan -- the one who might visit Cleveland.com or ESPN daily to get a quick snapshot of what's going on in Cleveland sports.
The regional site will provide that snapshot. In addition, it will also feature content from the individual blogs to provide them with more exposure.
Meet Up at Great Lakes Brewing Co.
Now, here comes the fun part. To celebrate the launch, we would love for as many of our die-hard SB Nation Cleveland fans to attend a meet-up at Great Lakes Brewing Co. from 6-8PM:
- What: Cleveland Launch Party Meet Up
When: June 17th, 2010 from 6-8PM
- Where: Great Lakes Brewing Co. 2516 Market Ave. Cleveland, OH
SPECIALS - $1 off draft beer; ½ off pizzas
We are trying to nail down some food and drink specials, and will update it as soon as we know!
This is a great opportunity to meet with some of the more level-headed fans in Cleveland. Even the off-beat fans are welcomed; perhaps you'll get to meet everyone's favorite mooncamping? Leave a response if you think you'll be able to attend the meet up!
P.S. If you are out of state, there are meet ups being held in other cities across the country.
