Twitter Party to Chat about Minivans, Costco and Midlife Crises

Dan Gets a Minivan

Join me  to chat about minivans, Costco, Midlife crises and more (that you never saw coming) as we celebrate Father’s Day and the launch of DAN GETS A MINIVAN: LIFE AT THE INTERSECTION OF DUDE AND DAD, the newest book by Dan Zevin.

Monday, June 11th, 2012

Join @theculturemom, BruceSallan and @DanZevin at 9pm EST, 6pm PST.

Sponsored by our friends at @MamaDramaNY.

Hashtag: #MiniVanDan

From instituting date night to joining Costco, from finding a nanny to using the word ‘playdate’ with a straight face, …he’s got every base about fatherhood–wait, make that familyhood–covered.

Maybe you’re a dude, a dad, or someone who’s married to either. Maybe you’re an uncle, an aunt, or a funny close friend. Fasten your seatbelts and prepare to crack up. When life hands you a minivan, you might as well enjoy the ride.

Join me for what is sure to be a night of laughter as we join to discuss the latest book by comedy writer, Dan Zevin.  It’s the true story of going from a Brooklyn hipster to a suburban minivan owner and everything that happened in between.  Zevin tells it like is.  From joining Costco to finding a nanny to using the word “play date” with a straight face, he’s got every base about fatherhood covered.  If you haven’t encountered Dan or his book, check out his YouTube videos and you’ll get the gist – he’s hilarious:

We’ll also be giving away FIVE copies of his book all throughout the party, just in time for Father’s Day.  If you’re looking for a good gift for a man you know, you can still order it with plenty of time to arrive on the big day.

@DanZevin himself will be live tweeting (and his first Twitter party, so this could be more even comical than I ever imagined).

In addition, we’ll have Bruce Sallan as our co-host.  Sallan is author of “A Dad’s Point-of-View: We ARE HALF the Equation” and radio host of “The Bruce Sallan Show- A Dad’s Point-of-View“.  He gave up a long-term showbiz career to become a stay-at-home-dad and has dedicated his life to becoming THE Dad advocate.  Join him on FacebookTwitter and each Thursday for #DadChat from 6-7 PST, his own Tweet chat.

So whether you’re a dude, a dad, an uncle, a mom, an aunt, or someone who is married or knows either, and loves to laugh, fasten your seat belt and prepare to CRACK UP.

And if you can’t make it to our chat, pick up your copy of Dan Gets a Minivan today over on Amazon.

  1. BTW, I forgot to tell you both – Holly and Dad – that I am a CostCoholic. Yes, I raise my hand and declare, “My name is Bruce and I’m addicted to CostCo.” I know just about EVERY employee at our local CostCo. I go there when I’m happy, sad, and imbetween. I just love it there – seriously!
