Twitter Tuesday: Booze, books and conservative thoughts
@DenverHappyHour: Do you need a drink or three today after work? Not sure where to go? This fine Twitter feed is full of nothing but happy hour specials from around town. It's a great way to discover new places to drown your sorrows and celebrate your achievements. For added utility, they also include a link to a Google map of the bar's location. Man, technology is awesome.
@CapHillBooks: If you love books, you probably know all about the awesome Capitol Hill Books, a Denver landmark for almost thirty years. Well, now you can keep up with them on Twitter, where you'll discover great deals and new items arriving in store. It's like having a mole at your favorite bookstore who calls you when the good stuff arrives, so you can get first crack at it.
@ColoFreedom: I promised I'd post a good conservative Twitter feed if I found one, and this one seems to fit the bill. It's mainstream conservatism -- they call themselves a coalition of center-right thinkers -- so you'll get lots of links and info about our burgeoning debt and calls for smaller government and lower taxes and bitching about Obama and Congress, but not insane ranting about Obama's "true" birthplace and that kind of crap. With more than 4,500 followers, they have a decent-sized base, and they are far less obnoxious than Glenn Beck or Rush Limbaugh.
