We would love to thank everyone who was a part of @EarlsRestaurant & @loveCDNbeef #SteakRedemption Twitter Party and Google Hangout on Thursday May 2!
We were hosting the Twitter Party live from our Earls Yaletown location. Tweeting on behalf of @EarlsRestaurant was Cate Simpson, Communications & myself, Miko Bryson, Marketing + Customer Experience Coordinator.
We also had our BC East Regional Chef Cam Armstrong @ArmstrongCam answering some of the hottest steak questions!
The Google Hangout was such a great experience! If you didn’t get a chance to catch it, you can at http://ow.ly/kLogL
At the end of the Twitter Party we gave away $100 gift cards to five lucky participants!
We thought we would recap & highlight some of the Q&A in case you missed out…
Time certainly did fly by; we asked a total of 5 questions over the hour and got some great responses!
