Summer dream job: Smoke weed, walk around Magazine with a screwdriver popping old rusty staples out of telephone poles
— Ian Hoch (@ianhoch) June 1, 2013
As I am handed a golden scepter and draped in my red velvet cape, I present to you this week's Y@ Speak following our farewell to the reign of Lauren LaBorde. Her rule will be difficult to follow.
Nevertheless, New Orleans Twitter basked in the warm glow of its inaugural Y@ Speak award nominations, got really excited about Hubig's rebuilding its pie factory, ate oysters, met @BeingNOLA, and battled termites.
All in preparation, presumably, for #twitterprom, aka the Y@ Speak Awards. Winners will be announced at 5:30 p.m. tonight at Publiq House (4528 Freret St.). Your host is dream job conjurer Ian Hoch. Can't make it in person? Follow along on @yat_speak.
