theCHIVE’s First Official Meetup: Beer, booze, and photobombs (47 Photos)

Last week was one for the books here at theCHIVE. We flew in your favorite Chivettes, Lauren Gentile, Willow Hubbard, and Erin Willet for the inaugural Chivette Calendar shoot. We can't thank the girls enough, not only for being beautiful, but also for being every bit as awesome in person as you'd hope. We've included a few behind-the-scenes shots below.

The week culminated on Saturday with our first official Chive Meetup. The energy in the room Saturday night was amazing. Meeting our Chivers really brought home how far the site has come in just a couple short years. It was a humbling experience for Leo and I to see Chivers from every age and ethnicity come together for a good laugh. Our Chivers are the most positive group of people out there. The only thing that trumped your high aptitude for drinking was your photobombing skills. Needless to say, we're going to do this again.

Special thanks to The Devil's Box, Ice King Creations, Hotel Irwin, Main on Main, Jessie Ross, our sister Emily from theBERRY, Elyse Porterfield, and all of our awesome Chivers. You've made the site what it is today. And, yes, we're fixing the goddam iPhone App.

Chive On!

    I think Erin is an absolute dime, but I must say, I'm still on the Lauren boat. Sexy AND grad student (not to mention her continuous picture submissions and loyalty to theChive)= awesome person.

      Why not post something positive about someone you do like? Why put your energy into being negative…lame-o

      Hey, would you guys mind making anthoer minor word usage that I find slightly amusing so that I can make an overly pendantic attempt at humor so that I can get my ass handed to me again?
