Wings Plus: “The Cafe Versailles of Broward” to host Facebook party

Known as the “The Cafe Versailles of Broward” or the place “where the politically elite meet,” Wings Plus is the perfect venue for Brian Walsh to stage yet another meet and greet for his social network of friends and family.

With so many friends, family and fans between the social media networks of Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, MySpace, Meetup, Yelp and myLife, Brian Walsh has planned his next Facebook Party for Monday, August 6th.

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, 141 people turned out to meet their virtual friends.

The second Facebook Family and Friends Meet-Up 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, 151 people came out to meet their virtual friends and enjoy chicken wings at Wings Plus.

On June 19th, the third Facebook Family and Friends Meet-up at Wings Plus produced a similar turnout.  Despite an NBA Finals game in which the Miami Heat beat the Oklahoma City Thunder, about 135 were in attendance to meet friends that were previously only known to them virtually.

With Ed Horowitz providing the music and Dr. Tom Latrielle providing the Facebook photography, a great time was had by all.

Many Facebook friends and fans wanted to attend one of the parties but could not due to rain or other commitments.  In fact, many complained that a Facebook party was not planned for July.

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.

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.

It is now being rumored that Brian Walsh is attempting to have President Barack Obama pay him a visit at Wings Plus.

“I’m glad to have hosted these Facebook parties,” stated Brian Walsh, the longtime owner of Wings Plus. “Between theses parties and the local, state and national elections, we’ve seen a lot of increased activity around here.”

Brian Walsh’s next Facebook Friends and Family Meet-Up will be held Monday, August 6th from 6pm until 9pm at the Sample Road location of Wings Plus. Please consider attending and meet your virtual Facebook friends in person.

Let’s see if the power of social media is really effective and jam pack Wings Plus that evening.
