Blogger & The Beat

What happens when the most awesome bloggers in Las Vegas descend upon the hip-retro coffeehouse, The Beat, located in the heart of the Downtown Vegas Tech scene… and have way too much coffee to drink?  That’s right, it’s Blogger & The Beat!

Join us at The Beat Coffeehouse to network, share and learn about all-things social media and blogging in Las Vegas.  This monthly workshop is powered by Recess and caffeinated by The Beat Coffeehouse.
