One of the best things about running this site and @OLV on Twitter is hearing stories of fans who have connected, either on movie sets or here in our comment sections, and have become lifelong friends.
Many of our Twitter followers are also fans of Donnie Wahlberg, who currently stars in Blue Bloods which shoots in New York. Some of those fans have suggested organizing a fan meet-up in New York City where everyone can meet and talk about their love for all things Donnie Wahlberg.
When I mentioned the meet-up on Twitter, I had many responses and thought we would need somewhere to decide where/when/and how fans can get together to meet and, hopefully, form a few more lifelong friendships! Maybe, if we can get enough people to sign up, we can even convince Donnie Wahlberg to stop by too!
If you are interested in meeting fellow fans of Donnie Wahlberg in NYC, leave a comment below with your suggestions for dates (try to stick to Friday nights - Sundays, March 2011 may be best), locations, or any fun activity you would be willing to help organize (maybe a trivia contest or DDubs-related game).
Hopefully, we can enough people interested (who can agree on a place and time) that everyone will be able to meet and have a great time!
Remember, this event WILL NOT include an appearance by Donnie Wahlberg, this is a fan-only get-together. But, that doesn't mean we can't invite him!
And, if the NYC event is a success, we can set up similar events in other cities too!
If you are interested in attending a Donnie Wahlberg fan meet-up, please leave a comment below and pass this thread along to any other fans you think would like to go as well!
If you have any questions you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org too.
