If the thought of live, verbal tweeting doesn't have you hooked, there's going to live music by Bears of Manitou, a drink/concession stand, free snacks from Quiznos and La Bocca and coffee from Cartel Coffee Lab. There's even an after-party at Robbie Fox's Public House, just north of the theater.
Parking around Mill Avenue can be a mess, but there's a garage on Fifth Street and Forest avenue, which is free for the first hour and then really free after 6 p.m. There's also the Centerpoint surface lot (Fifth Street and Maple Avenue) that also grants the first hour free.
And if you're swamped, have stage fright, or can't face the thought of walking outside in the heat to your car, you can follow the Twitter hashtag #smdayphx and participate in the live feed that will show in the MADCAP lobby. SMAZ is also livestreaming the event online at www.socialmediaaz.org/smdayphx
Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
