On Thursday evening 15 July we opened our doors to the Who's Who of Social Media and Digital Technology in Edinburgh, hosting a fantastic evening event for the members of the Edinburgh Coffee Morning suitably named Edinburgh Coffee Morning Beer Evening or rather EdCMBEIn attendance were more than 100 folk drinking, eating, networking and tweeting! What a night! A huge success!

It was our pleasure to host such a fantastic event and we want to express our warmest gratitude to everyone involved, namely the organisers Carrie, Nadine, Kay, and Danielle, the EdCMBE sponsors, Stewart Brewing and Illegal Jacks, supporters Vino Wines and Inigo Media and generous cash donations coming from Attacat and Eden Scott all contributing to a wonderful night of which we could not of done without.

With swarm of social media taking course and with so many offers of support and donations coming in we even decided to hold a raffle. We raised over £600 pounds for The Ambeciles / The Edinburgh Sick Kids Friends Foundation. A massive thank you to all who gave so generously and we wish the men in good stead as they take off for Mongolia in a second hand 1998  S-reg ambulance bought on E-bay. Good luck boys!

The event didn't stop there as the tweeting continued a challenge to the many ladies involved lead to a Bake-off judged by Alison (enjoyed by all) awarding first prize to @LittleDishy - A gorgeous tower bottle of liqueur donated by Demijohn.

What else is to be said other than the beer was delicous and the chili was a hot hit and the buzz of excitement leading up to it never fell short! Will we do it again? I certainly think so!

"The buzz of folk from Scotland’s Social Media and Digital scene enjoying themselves was fantastic and it was great to see a number of people who hadn’t seen each other for a very long time reconnecting. I think Stills as a venue really came into it’s own on Thursday night and from the enquiries since, I don’t think it’ll be the last!" Blog quote by Nadine Peirce

A few more words written about the event by Nadine and Laura can be found on their blogs and a host of great photos on Stills' Flickr. And why not follow the hashtag #EdCMBE or #EdCM to link up with the group and keep up with all the social media buzz in and around Edinburgh.

Well done everyone!

Screen Bandita: A screening of found super8 films 14 May 7:30 pm at Stills

Collating a program from Super8 film reels found in junk shops and dusty attics and incorporating a suitably antiquated live Gramophone soundtrack, 'Reels from Life' intends to celebrate the Super8 medium in all its folksy and amateur glory.

Join us on 14 May 7:30 pm at Stills to relive spontaneous moments, family holidays and forgotten episodes.

An hour long program with a short intermission.

Entry free.
