Whether you are cheesed-off or chuffed to bits about it, The Royal Wedding will be taking place, and you can do abso-bloody-lutely nothing to stop it.

So if you’re in “The Big Smoke” during the festivities embrace it and pick up this special “The Royal Wedding” stamp while visiting “Westminster Abbey“.

There are many featured locations around London, so go out and see what the city has to offer.

So what do you do if you aren’t anywhere near London?  Check in at any location where you are watching the event and mention “Royal Wedding” to have this festively designed pin added to your virtual passport.

SXSW Item Updates

March 28, 2011 Leave a comment

For those of you that were able to make it to our fair city of Austin, TX to experience all the greatness of SXSW we hope that you were able to score a few of the new items.  These items were inspired by various partnerships (Southwester Airlines) and product launches (iPad 2 at the special SXSW Apple “Pop Up” Store).  If you were around to take part in any of the Gowalla parties you might have also been able to snag the “Golden Viewmaster” and the “Gowallaby Ballooon”.
