While you rested in your Memorial Day beverage- and feast-induced slumber, we couldn’t wait to wake up this morning and get cracking on this week’s event highlights.
Why? Because we love you. Not to mention we’re hoping to check out of here by noon, planning to feed off of leftovers in days to come, and reveling in the relaxation that comes with a four-day work week.
That said, we can’t stress enough that you drop in on one of Philadelphia’s many tech events this week. Not next week when you will be backbreakingly re-entrenched at work. No siree. We’re talking about this week, when you are truly appreciating the humidity and the slowed pace of life for the very first and last time this summer and will end up feeling guilty for not getting out there while you can.
We’re anxious to see how the The New Voice of Business kick-off party will go, what, with Mayor Nutter dropping in for the festivities. We’re as skeptical as the next guy about Philadelphia actually becoming the greenest city in America, but hell, let’s let loose Tuesday.
Speaking of letting loose, let’s drop your WordPress into fourth gear and truly get it pumping on the search engine internerds. SEO Grail has blog and new media consultant Michael Klusek to talk about how to mod the heck out of that out-of-box blogging experience. 409, baby.
And last, to echo our love of all things grilled, Philly Startup Leaders is organizing a committee to help plan its first-ever BBQ. Pass the Heinz and a sesame-seed level fund. Holy, we did not just say that. Technically Philly out. Hit the jump for more details.
All events listed on the event calendar are free to attend. Be sure to check our complete calendar for more information, or follow us past the jump.
Tuesday, May 26: The New Voice of Business champions economic, social and environmental sustainability in business and says that the “old voice” ain’t talkin’ loud enough.

Wednesday, May 27: Philadelpia Linux May Meetup gathers together the city’s Linux users Wednesday night to ask a vital question: “What are we gonna do about all those damn Apple kids?” We kid, we kid. But seriously, we like what we’ve seen lately. Now, to convince the rest of the world that there’s just something sexy about the command line—one meetup at a time. 7:00 p.m. Fairmount. RSVP.

Thursday, May 28: You’ll be kicking yourself when you turn down seconds on a juicy, grilled burger today and someone else swipes the last one. Have a second lease on Memorial Day by helping plan Philly Startup Leaders‘ BBQ Thursday evening. They wanna throw a serious BBQ bash this summer and want your input. Leave the grill at home, but our guess is no one’s going to turn down leftover deviled eggs. Mmm-Mmmm.6:00 p.m. Center City West. RSVP. [view more events]
