Chase Jarvis SOCIAL

If you’re at all interested in occasionally subverting digital-only communities and you’d wanna gather over a beer or a bite with yours truly and some other like-minded people, I’ve begun holding impromptu social gatherings at random spots around the world, and would love for you to join in.

Participating is simple. Just follow me on Twitter (@chasejarvis) and keep your eyes peeled for an occasional flurry of tweets outlining a place and a time. You’ll have to wade thru my other twitter ramblings and daily iPhone image postings, but at some point, I’ll tweet about getting together for a social at some random bar, restaurant, ice cream parlor, opium den, playgound, etc, and we’ll connect and chat photography, video, art, pop culture, whatever. Doesn’t matter if 2, 20, or 200 people show up – I’m just interested in meeting some people that I’ve historically had virtual-only relationships with, getting people together analog-style, and talking shop. This is not formal in any way, in fact… [click the ‘continue reading’ link below]

…it’s exactly the opposite: my little rebellion against it. This is not me talking. It’s not a seminar. It’s not a photo event or Flickr roundup. Think impromptu beers or coffee with friends. Think casual gathering, with a short lead time, flash-mob style. Think SOCIAL. No host bar/food, just show up and hang out and socialize. And if you’re thinking I only make it to the big cities, think again. My travel schedule puts me in some pretty random places, and I’d like to meet you.

I am on the road a lot–including this week–so if this interests you, tune in to Twitter. Hope we cross paths in real life.

[And, lastly, thanks again for all the feedback on my recently refreshed If you missed the post or haven’t ducked outside of your email or RSS reader to check it out, I’d welcome some feedback. Muy bueno and many thanks.]

At this time it sounds like Drupal is the top blogging platform available right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

Hi Chase,
best idea I’ve heard for a long time. I’ll be there when ever it takes you to Germany or anywhere in nothern Europe. Just come on over, I’ll take care of the rest!

Montreal… MONTRÉAL!! Put this on your list!!! Let’s take a beer a la Québécoise :P

Let’s us know if you pass by!!

Denmark is the place to be..! If you ever come over here, I’ll teach you a thing or two about high-end commercial photography:)…

Danie Nel says:

When you’re coming to South Africa in June/July (?), I might fly to Johannesburg for a day at the expo and might see you, but since you’re in SA, I assume you’ll be making a turn in Cape Town, I’ll be glad to team up here with other industry chaps for a coffee/beers/wine, whatever.

Awesome! I’m in. You should come visit us in Philly. We’ll buy you beer))

Brian says:

Kevin says:

Toronto! Don’t worr of winter now and it’sactually warm put!

I, unfortunately, currently reside in Charleston, West Virginia. I have been an admirer of yours for a while…not only because of your photographic work, but because of your philosophy background and because you made a really big something out of nothing. I would jump at any chance to hang and chill with you, but West Virginia is a small dot on the larger map of the world. However, come nearby, and I’ll be there, even if I only have the chance to listen to whatever you may have to say. Follow me on Twitter @etherealshadows, or check out my (rather weak) work at or

93 miles from Europe’s Southernmost Ski Resort (Sierra Nevada).

94 miles from Europe’s Wind Capital (Tarifa). Paradise for windsurfers and kitesurfers and a short leap to Morocco. I’m sure you’ll enjoy the lifestyle, the food and the culture around.

Luis says:

Guinness beer is better in Dublin!
Drop by anytime!

David says:

Chase – I just did this with my own blog readers here in Vancouver – had a spectacular time! I can’t think of a way I’d rather spend an afternoon or evening – community-building is where it’s at, man!

watzabatza says:

whoa! i don’t drink that beer. :-)

Mark Legge says:

I mentioned on Twitter, but if you ever find yourself in SW England, particularly the Bristol area, well I’ll be sure to meet up, and I’m sure there’s a few others round here that would take the time too.

saswell says:

Please come to Dublin, Ireland & get a proper Céad Mile Fáilte'!

Wild Imagination says:

I’ll look forward to it next time you make it to podunk, Fairbanks, AK.

Brian says:

Awesome. =) Always the approachable celebrity! I’ll be looking forward to your visit to Baltimore! Would have been fun to kick back a beer or tea and talk photography when I was out there in Seattle!

Oh wait… is this just a sly plan to get free beer, dinner, etc??? =) Well it would certainly be worth it – I’d buy a round of beers, burgers, pizza, etc for your chatting company! Welcome to stardom.

Ryan Golla says:

You are always welcome in Sydney, Australia! :)

Luis Vargas says:

Dude, you rock. If you ever are in Chile, first round´s on me.

I hope Arkansas is one of those random places, I would love to meet you.

Very cool. Michigan is well regarded as being one of the best beer regions in the world (right there with So Cal and Belgium), so if you’re ever out here post up on your Twitter and I can recommend some really great micro breweries and would do what I can to meet up and buy you a pint.

I hear from my mom in Everett that it’s snowing again. She just came down to visit me in San Diego where it’s going to be in the 70’s this week and sunny. Plus…I work for HP and you can come and do all the prints you can possibly imagine (ink bribery). If I ask the right people we might be able to do some side-of-the-building size prints too. So look me up via my blog if you’re in town.
