Last night, local twitter-users gathered at the Aloft Hotel in Tempe to socialize, try great food from local businesses as donate money to St. Mary's Food Bank during Twestival Local Phoenix. Twestival started as a Twitter-based meet-up but has grown into an event that benefits local charities all around the world from September 10 -13.

Attendees checked in and began sampling treats from Sweet Republic, Joe's Real BBQ and more amidst sipping drinks from the W XYZ bar and perusing silent auction items.
