The Nerdery is famous in the Twin Cities as a great place to work and play.  So when nerds take time out to fire up the grill and invite the neighborhood over to see the new expanded headquarters, it’s a fun time to say the least.  The retro theme referred to a bunch of games brought out of storage:  what Angry Birds???  For Shareology it broke down into games, shirts and photo booth — and away we go!!

Games:

Given the growth, both past and future, of The Nerdery, resumes were being taken on the spot.  To help spot the networker of your field of choice, nerds were wearing shirts with particularly helpful backs.  Just a few of the shirts that caught Shareology’s eye:

The photo booth immediately caught my eye.  Ya’ll gathered in front of a screen, it took 4 shots, and they appeared in the tiny, tiny printer as postcards.  Oh, yeah, and they were also sent to The Nerdery’s Facebook page!!!

Couple of last thoughts–I think the machine below is circa 1983ish:

One of the many people-friendly aspects of The Nerdery culture is that it is definitely dog-friendly.  There’s even rumors of a cat or two…

Well, there you have it.  Congratulations to The Nerdery for a great introduction to its new space!  For more information, go to:   http://nerdery.com/  or follow them on twitter:  @The_Nerdery

Update from Social Media Breakfast – Retail: Izzy’s Secret Revealed! June 6, 2010

Remember Social Media Breakfast – Minneapolis – St. Paul – Retail when Jeff Sommers of Izzy’s Ice Cream had a big revelation coming?  One that he could not reveal that morning at Mall of America?   Well, Shareology went to 2034 Marshall Avenue in St. Paul for a tweet-up this weekend, and saw the secret revealed!    

It actually starts on YOUR computer!    

  

By going to their website (listed below), then clicking on Izzy’s Flavor Up, you can check out what flavors are available today in the store for your taste buds!  By using RFID technology, a boatload of persistence, and the help of Tunheim Partners and Sierra Bravo, Izzy’s helps you find your favorite flavor available today in the store.  32 flavors are always on hand; a total of 90 are in rotation.  However, in Izzy’s history, 100′s of flavors have danced through the Marshall Avenue store.  

So check out Izzy’s current inventory via web and head on over to the store:  

  

  

Choices, Choices, Choices!

  

  

  

Social Media Savvy Izzy's!

  

  

  

Inside or outside, Izzy's creates memories

Kinda makes you wonder what else RFID technology could be used for in retail….  

Jeff and Lara opened Izzy’s on July 29, 2000; as you can see by the date, you’ve got a great 10 year celebration to add to your calendar.  So get yourself over to Izzy’s at 2034 Marshall Avenue in St. Paul and start online!  http://www.izzysicecream.com/
