CrackBerry NYC Meetup - The Movie!

Maybe this is less of a movie and more of a highlight reel. Either way, you'll want to watch it. The CrackBerry NYC Meetup ROCKED!

As I post this, it was literally one week to the hour that fans of CrackBerry were having an awesome time at our NYC Meetup.

The exclusive 1 Oak made an amazing venue for CrackBerry fans and a whole lot of happy BlackBerry Z10 owners to come together to celebrate the launch of BlackBerry 10 in the good 'ol US of A.

We had an awesome turn out. Great times were had by all in attendance. For those who couldn't attend, at least you can hit up the video above to see what you missed. We brought out our friends from Human in NYC to catch some video from the event, and they did an awesome job whipping together this video. Watch it!

We're going to do our best to hold more of these events around the world. If you missed the photo gallery and post-party write up, check it out here

There ain't no party like a CrackBerry party!!

Awesome, hope there's one in the GTA sometime!

Crackberrykills

Niiice. I am sorry I missed out. If CrackBerry ever makes it down to NC, my face will be in the place.

Also, thank you, FuzzyFish, for not posting "first!"

FuzzyFish

You bet! ;) I hate the stupid "FIRST!!" as much as you guys lol.

FunktasticLucky

what part of NC are you from? I've lived in Asheville for the last 14 to 15 years. I'm stationed in Okinawa right now though but NC is still my home... which is funny cuz I moved from Texas and as great as the state is, I'd miss my mountains and how beautiful it looks in the fall.

Thank you for not saying "First"

Now we are wasting threads on "Thanking" people for not saying first. :)

slagman5

Thank you for pointing out the folly in posting about thanking someone for being the first to post in the comments for an article without actually saying "first" in their first comment... ;-)

aha

No thank you for pointing out.....lol

axllebeer

Going to watch it as soon as my son falls asleep. I would miss 1/2 of it if I tried now lol

axllebeer

+1 on this. Do it at 1 King West.

Supa_Fly1

At Earl's .... HELL YES!!!

That place is the spot, ladies (hot ones) - ladies there are good looking male servers for you as well btw - lots of drinks (proper bar), great outside patio - probably the best in Toronto for space, comfort, and just good layout - CLEAN bathrooms, great staff, and actually kinda resembles this NYC bar this even was at.

I wish I was there!!! Yes Kevin needs to organize one in Toronto.

DanielLui1

Yeah. I agree. If there was one in Toronto that would be awesome.

Hey Kev,

Jake2826

Impressive you guys. Very impressive. Never before has the industry seen anything like CrackBerry fans, and the guys at CrackBerry make it all possible. It's brilliant to see quality material produced. Material that shows who we are as BlackBerry People. I just want to say thank you.

camera531

That would make a hell of an advertisement for Blackberry. This should be a commercial!

tw1g_007

Wow. A lot of corny moments on video but it looked like fun.

No corn - 100% BlackBerry!

Why wasn't in the video. I was all over the place.

Bla1ze

Lol.. Adam and I aren't even in it. You're on the cutting room floor, with us!

Posted via CB10

Iamanonymous62

What do you expect Bla1ze? You're not in it because you're always wearing some silly hat/ball cap, it looks out of place in a classy establishment. The guys who made the video aren't stupid. Grow up, lose the hat!

Bla1ze

Why can't you just love me for who I am? LOL

G-bone

Michelle does, I do - what more could you want?
Oh! I know - more energy drinks,video games and HARD core music!!

It's okay Bla1ze, they are just jealous that you were there, on his cutting room floor, while they weren't even invigorating to get party.

Sometimes Kevin looks as though he has sold his soul when pimping these events on behalf of BlackBerry. ROFLMAO

Posted via CB10 from the BlackBerry Z10

Bla1ze

Nah, I believe they just call that 'drunk'.. to his credit though, that guy really needs to take a few days off to sleep.

Iamanonymous62

To Kevin, Blackberry = $Crackberry$, Therefore, anything that's good for Blackberry = $$$ for Kevin. Like any good pimp, it's all about the $$$.

Alicia Erlich

I was standing next to Jerome outside so I guess I was cut out but if you look closely you sit a bit of my red scarf. lol

SK122387

There should be another one in L.A. when the Q10 launches. East coast got to party for the Z10, let us party for the Q10!

Maxey05

I always feel like a minority with my BlackBerry in public... A meet up like that would trip me out!.!.! Hopefully one day I will be able to experience the BlackBerry Bond! I already kinda feel it with the new Z10 out! I have seen a few people with one and they seem to enjoy it!

bizzyqu

That's exactly what it was like, so much BlackBerry love in that room

Looks like an awesome party! Wish I was there!

Was there, was fun, was all it was cracked up to be. Drank Crackberry fizz all night.

SO_Davis

So the video wasn't made through a Z10 on the built in story maker app....boo

crohns

Looks like it would have been a great time. Have on in TO and i'm there.

smoothrunnings

Wait why did you do this in the US Kevin, why not in Toronto or Waterloo? Are you an American now? You do realize the American dollar is on the verge of collapse that even the countries who used to use the US dollar to trade amongst themselves are now using a different currency because they know its worth far less than what analyst are telling everyone.

bbfanboi

Can CrackBerry put the blog articles in order by date. I'm constantly missing articles. If you want stuff to remain on top, put it in the Featured view. I thought that was why you added the Featured view in the first place. Thanks!

gbolahanojo

Or Winnipeg, Kevin you are a Pegger at least give us a crackberry McDonald's meet up....

Nice!!!! ........and Damn!!!!! Missed the meeting @ SBSW Festival in Austin. @Kevin. Need to come to Austin, man. " Live Music Capital of the World." :)

tabalet

The production quality of that video is top-notch; Human did an outstanding job. There was so much going on that evening, and this captured the essence of it all. Thanks again to Kevin and the crew for hosting such an outstanding event. As I said in the video, the BB10/Z10 platform is rock solid - and so is the CrackBerry nation!

punbb

What this video shows is the maturity of BB users. I honestly think that if this was an iphone meetup, you probably couldn't even serve alcohol at the event!

aha

The next one should be held at place where BlackBerry 10 sold the most...... I am just saying ;)

bcruz2000

The video came out great!! Glad I was able to make it out to the event.

toosweetnitemare

and when it supports smime over activesynce i will buy it again. corporate email fail bb

JUSTQUAN2

No other OEM has this type of support. That is what makes Blackberry and what will keep them around for many years. People look from a far and say look at those obsessed people. Eventually they come see what the noise is about and stumble upon a vast community of true lovers of Blackberry. That in turn draws them closer to the Blackberry community and want to be apart of that. No matter what anyone says people love to be around positivity and optimism.

Woot, I was online there with my #7 "man bag". Don't judge me. That dude with the dreads in the white polo that gave the thumbs up was the iPhoner trying to talk mess in line. I promptly put snuffed his paltry attempts at bashing the event/phone/brand. I Love What I Do. #BlackBerry4Life
