The Tumblr Community self-organizes hundreds of Meetups around the world every month. We’ll highlight some of the stories behind our favorite Tumblr Meetups here every Friday.

Bicoastal NY/LA Tumblr Play-Up

David Vienna, proprietor of popular Dad Blog The Daddy Complex, had a dream: The first-ever bicoastal Tumblr Play-Up for parents and their kids in Los Angeles and New York, to take place simultaneously. Locations were picked, a spiffy flier was created, and it became a reality.

On November 19, while Kirby Amour of Baby G! hosted Tumblr parents and babies at Brooklyn Bridge Park in NY, David hosted the LA contingent at the Pan Pacific Park.

“I’m not going to sugarcoat it — if you missed it, you missed a pretty good time,” David said afterwards. “The post-game cocktail was deserved.”
