Facebook message

Was receiving a lot of text messages from family/friends/people I hadn't heard from in a while, so went with Facebook to get word out that me and my family who live in Boston were OK to larger group of people. Also threw in the bar mention as a little joke since people were understandably freaking out online that day.
