The first Facebook Family and Friends Meet-Up at Wings Plus on April 30th went pretty well. Despite four straight days of rain, three NBA playoff games, two NHL playoff games, an earlier Miami Marlins game, and Dancing with the Stars on ABC, they still managed to have 141 people turn out.
The second Facebook Family and Friends Meet-Up at Wings Plus in Coral Springs on May 22nd produced a slightly higher turnout. Despite yet another Miami Heat playoff game, torrential downpours, a tornado watch, flash flooding throughout Broward County, Dancing with the Stars on ABC and American Idol on FOX, they managed 151 in attendance.
Generally known as the “The Cafe Versailles of Broward” or the place “where the politically elite meet,” Wings Plus is the perfect Northwest Broward venue to stage a meet and greet for their social network of friends and family.
In recent months, Presidential candidates Herman Cain, Rick Santorum, and Newt Gingrich have all visited Brian Walsh at Wings Plus. Mitt Romney visited in 2008 and George W. Bush visited when he was President of the United States.
With so many friends and family between the social networks of Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, MySpace, Meetup, Yelp and myLife, Brian Walsh has decided to stage another Facebook Friends and Family Meet-Up at Wings Plus in Coral Springs.
Many of their Facebook friends wanted to attend but could not because of the rain. Many wanted the event to be rescheduled.
Despite the sports playoffs, television shows, and torrential downpours throughout South Florida, the event were not canceled but went on as planned.
With that said, Wings Plus is planning a “make-up” event. If you missed the first party on April 30th or the second party on May 22nd, please consider coming out on Tuesday, June 19th for an even bigger event.
Based upon the success of the event, Brian Walsh is considering a monthly “Facebook Party” through the election cycle and Christmas.
“I’m glad to see so many new faces,” said Brian Walsh, the longtime owner of Wings Plus. “Between the local and national elections, we have certainly seen a lot of increased activity around here.”
Wings Plus has hosted hundreds of state, local, and national candidates for public office in the last two decades. Numerous charity fundraisers also find a home at Wings Plus.
The Facebook Friends and Family Meet-Up will be held Tuesday, June 19th from 6pm until 9pm at the Sample Road location of Wings Plus. Please attend and meet your Facebook friends in person.
Let’s see if the power of social media is really effective and jam pack Wings Plus that evening. Hopefully, the skies will be clear and their will be no rain in the forecast.

“Don’t forget to bring the kids,” concluded Walsh. “We have a surprise in store for them.”
