Welcome to Podcast Stockton, episode number 17. Now, featuring co-host Rod Villagomez. In this episode:

A couple of items from the news: tickets are on sale for college hoops, Pacific versus Cal at the Stockton Arena, 209Vibe is back on Twitter, SJ Delta College invited to the Silicon Valley Bowl this Saturday.

Stockton's first Tweetup. On Thursday, November 12, Valley Brew hosted Stockton's first Tweetup. Wes Rhea, Director of the Stockton Conference and Visitors Bureau fearlessly led our Tweetup team. We raffled off some great door prizes, including a custom holiday centerpiece donated by Patt from Elegant Essence and follow her on Twitter. Check out the pics here, the blog here and the Record piece here. For more information on future Stockton Tweetups, visit StocktonTweetup.com and follow us on Twitter.

A new nightclub opens in Downtown Stockton. After some delay, Taste Ultra Lounge officially opens tonight. Visit their website, Twitter and Facebook.

The Wave is upon us. Big thanks to Podcast Stockton alum Andy Pinasco (aka @brewery33), Rod and I, and quite a few others, are part of Google Wave, the next generation. If you're part of the wave, find us there at mjbeckwith@googlewave.com and rjvillagomez@googlewave.com.

Rod's Rants part 2. On Thanksgiving, Rod will be walking at the 5th Annual Run and Walk Against Hunger and broadcasting live video. Follow his progress as he talks with other participants by visiting RodsRants.com.
