FLCreatives Happy Hour - Build Guild - Tech Happy Hour at The Other Bar

The VolTron of Happy Hours!

Location

The Other Bar
18 Wall Street
Orlando, FL 32801
Community or Meetup: 
Dec 12 2012 6:00p - 9:00p

I'm calling this the VolTron Happy Hour.

This month the local technology groups are joining forces to throw a massive holiday happy hour at The Other Bar (on Wall Street between the Cantina and Wai Tiki). This is the normal date for Build Guild but several groups are also participating. Come and grow the Orlando scene!

Come and join some of the passionate creative minds of Orlando in one of the longest-running happy hour meetups in the state of Florida (almost 6 years!). Our goal is to provide a safe environment to share your schemes, unearth passions and meet mentors or co-founders. We always get a pretty diverse representation - lately we have graphic designeers, lawyers, illustrators, city planners, startup founders, tech folks and a plethora of others.

This is by far one of the best ways to "get involved" in the community. The people at our Happy Hours are plugged in to what is going on and who is doing it.

I decided this event needed a Mulligan. Same Bat Place, different Bat Time. The Courtesy even got a mention in Cole Nesmith's Pecha Kucha talk about all the awesome people and things in Orlando.

The Courtesy is a new establishment in an old buidling riding the "mixology" wave - they make some interesting cocktails and serve up craft beer and wine too. They are in the Dolive buidling - that place that was boarded up for the past few years - don't let that scare you off, I've been told it's a really great new place.

If you have been to our past happy hours at Gringos Locos it is diagonally across the corner from them, at the Northwest intersection of Washington and Orange Ave.

Last time there was a Sushi Food Truck parked out back. You would go out and order, and a runner brought your food in. Gringos is also across the street. Yum!

If you're not into cocktails or beer,
the Courtesy makes their own sodas and carries some excellent Ginger Ales and non-alcoholic delights.

I'm sure we'll get hungry, and Gringos would be a great place to finish, so don't worry if you're not into cocktails. I also read the Courtesy makes their own sodas!

Urban ReThink - Virgin Olive Market
625 E Central Blvd
Orlando, FL 32801
Community or Meetup: 
Apr 20 2012 8:00a - 11:00a

Likemind is before work (8AM), it happens downtown, and everyone is welcome. Bring a few friends, get some coffee, and tell us what's on your mind. We've been having some healthy turnout in the past few months. If you're getting something out of this event, please invite some friends. Since Urban ReThink is open now, and the Virgin Olive Market is serving coffee and food, let's meet up in Thornton Park. Street parking is abundant, so I don't want to hear any parking complaints. Also, meeting in downtown is part of the spirit of this event. Likemind Orlando Groups in 60+ other cities all over the world will be getting together for conversations with their community - sure, they may not have 2+ years of these events behind them, but we do. More than 3 years ago, I heard about these two marketing guys / geeks from New York who had started an event they held on Friday mornings for coffee and conversation. The first few were just the two of them, but as they invited people and the word got out, it grew until it started getting on the radar all over the world. Now Likemind happens in scores of cities on every continent, and Orlando has been on that list almost since the beginning.
