My tweeted response: #oops #donttellher
Luckily, nothing went amiss - and I learned just how fun it can be to talk to strangers. And how quickly they can become friends.

Beer, much like wine, is best consumed in good company. Mere hours before the event, we didn't know each other. But by the end of the night, with many laughs and stories shared, new friendships were forged. We raised a glass on the success of the "tweetup" and departed with a promise to meet again for the next one.
So your mom may still suggest you refrain from talking to strangers, but as @bs_ottawa put it, "If we are all drinking beer (together), we can't be all that strange!"
