Just wanted to send a shout out to Portsmouth for celebrating 4sqDay again this year at Moxy. Moxy provided awesome Foursquare food and drink specials, Foursquare provided great swag, Crystal Paradis provided the four square game ball and chalk (#ballconfirmation! #chalkconfirmation!) and YOU all provided the good times and cheer. So, thank you!!
And even though we’re sad that we have to wait another year to celebrate 4sqDay again (as some of the Portsmouth 4sqDay party people are below), we ARE happy to announce that we will see you all again soon for #4sqFriday starting 5/10! We’ll be playing the game of four square on Friday evenings while the weather stays warm. So, stay tuned for more details at the hashtag and in the meantime, happy 4sqDay everyone!
We’re super stoked for Foursquare Day this Monday, and we’ve got some awesome specials being offered up by local businesses. More importantly we have one, yes one, limited edition Foursquare Day T-Shirt to give away. We are going to raffle it off at the end of the night at The Music Hall Meetup.
