I had the opportunity to invite a few local Online Influencers which have engaged but diverse communities to share the experience of Cafe Pierre’s Brunch at Double Tree Hilton in San Juan.

Cafe Pierre management agreed that it would be great if we could bring a few local online influencers to experience their Sunday Brunch by giving a complimentary  brunch to bloggers and online influencers.

I was so happy that this group of people I have a lot of respect for came along and created and awesome experience. I have to give to them all the credit for the succesful of the event . I invite you to follow these individuals because they offer great insight into their worlds and are great positive resources to have in your timeline.

@ricklipsett – I have been interacting with Rick online and had the privilege to meet him in person at Cafe Pierre. Rick writes in various blogs including undodigital.com.

@joeprog – Very passionate about music and I consider him an encyclopedia on that an many other subjects. His new project vorticeonline.com is a central repository for Movies, TV, Comics, Animation, Books, and Other Interesting Subjects in Spanish.

@dr_zu – Although she has an engaged community online I have to make full disclosure what she has become like family to me and @lucymfel. A natural connector with a great heart it was just right to keep her around she also brings great positive vibes.

@therealgabo – Gabriel has a unique ability to connect with all types of people and educating many. He has a very strong following on various channels and I learn a lot from him each and every day from relating with people to be the awesome dad I want to be.

@nelsonbermejo – Overthe last year I have been able to interact with Nelson on various occasions I can clearly state that the same energy he gives out through the radio waves and TV is the same one you get when you are sitting next to him. I consider Nelson to have the most engaged audience on Radio locally.

@wiltonv – My impression of Wilton use to be very different I have seen how an honest and great human being he is. Wilton is very objective and does in reality give you his opinion on everything. I value his feedback and as many of you already know feel free to visit him at tecnectico.com .

@papachote  & @luichita – This awesome couple has a good following on twitter. Mark is always posting his experiences on twitter that are of interest to many followers like me. He has a unique way of creating interest on even the simplest things in life.

@analovebug – I have very similar interests with her since she was vegetarian. She has proven to have a very diverse and engaged audience on twitter and her blog.

@jpadilla_ – Brilliant guy up to date on trending technologies as a developer. Still in college with a great future ahead of him. I can wait till next week we get to spend more quality time at #SXSWi. (by the way he also shoots awesome pictures).

@gabrielrodz – Very creative, creative, unique and one thing we both have in common is our level of energy.

@lyndation – I see how she interacts with her community and has shared her story on making life changes are an example to follow.

@gemini_pr – I have had the opportunity to read her blog in which she and @ricklipsett write about literature. It was a pleasure meeting her and I look forward to seeing her blog grow.

@itavotweet – Also from my hometown of Ponce and very proactive in writing about Apple products. I enjoy reading his blog and invite you to do the same.

@zelmarl – Recommended by Gabo Pagan I read her blog and thought it would be great to have her experience the brunch.

I can wait till I get back the feedback from the people that where part of such a great experience. I will be updating the post with links to the reviews by the bloggers.

Disclosure: We where invited by the Doubletree on a Complimentary Brunch. Even though our brunch was an invitation by the Cafe Pierre and the Doubletree we don’t feel that this influenced the writing of this post in any way.
