Mashable SummerMash Event in San FranciscoMashable's U.S. summer tour hit San Francisco last night. To the left is a Pete Cashmore cut-out as much as it really looks like the real-thing. That said, while you were greeted with the cut-out at the party not far from the area set up for interviews and official photos, Pete was present with the rest of the Masahble crew - Ben Parr, Adam Hirsch, Jenn Van Grove, Jolie O'Dell, Brett Petersel, Vadim Lavrusik and others.
Additional cities they're hitting this summer include Seattle, Washington D.C., New York City and Chicago. (poor Boston got left out). The hashtag for the event? #summermash of course.
Why the tour? Grow the Mashable brand and networking with other movers and shakers in the tech and social media industry.
Each event will pull in approximately 300 to 600 attendees and includes giveaways and formal introductions to the sponsors. Tour partners include Gotelo, Weber Shandwick and the Intel Atom Developer Program.
No dancing though - moving your booty just doesn't seem to be part of Silicon Valley tech culture. As for who showed up, take a meander below. By now means, did I capture anywhere close to even half the crowd, but I captured some fun ones nevertheless.
Jolie O'Dell and Eston Bond: man, I love her latest hair color combo
Ben Parr: Not quite the same as his Studly shot last week but certainly dressed for the occasion
Pete Cashmore: Is that Scottish accent fading I ask?

So great to see you again Renee. Glad we were able to catch up and talk a bit.
On the dancing side of things, let's be honest. All we needed was for Ben Parr to start shaking his booty and I know we could have got a mini dance party going. :)

Agreed. Let's talk to Ben about making sure that happens at the next event, whether its a Mashable one or not. We need a little more booty in Silicon Valley.
