Last night was the third #LRTweetup and, from what I’m hearing, it was the biggest one yet, with about 70 RSVPs making for a packed house at Copper Grill, our third gracious event host.

We missed the event. Yesterday was Laura’s birthday, and we had a family dinner at her mom’s house. Yep, the only thing that can keep me away from a Tweetup is my wife’s birthday. High praise! So we’re totally down for the next one.

It’s been a kick to hear from everyone about last night, as well as see some great photos from the event, which we’ve posted after the jump. If you’ve got some you’d like to contribute, e-mail them here, along with your name and Twitter username so I can properly credit.

Thanks again to everyone who helped put the event together. Special thanks to Copper Grill for the incredible hospitality, and to Paul Strack of Custom Printing for the cool name tags you can check out after the jump.

And be watching the official #LRTweetup site for information on the next event.
