BASHH on Craigslist missed connections = AWESOME

It’s official. BASHH is so big now that it’s even making the Craigslist missed connections section!

We were alerted today by @atxhipsters that BASHH was on CL. We laughed, we cried from laughing, then we laughed some more, not because someone is looking for that possible lost love but because of how the Twitter and CL community reacted.

Original CL post:

So what is the response? Who knows if this person found their match they were looking for privately, but the community responded in kind:

Not only are we tickled that there was a missed connection (that hopefully has turned into a REAL connection, LOTS of people have met at BASHH and started dating) but the interactivity between Twitter and CL is intriguing.

[box]The event was originally called BATHH (Big Ass Twitter Happy Hour) but it excluded people on other social networks like Facebook and arguably fringe networks like Craigslist. Therefore, the above missed connection reminds us that BASHH is social because of the many types of connections made at BASHH![/box]

Whoever posted the CL ad, we hope you’ve found your missed connection. And if/when you do, we hope you’ll tell us about it!
