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!

OneSpark Crowdfunding

One Spark

Location

Jacksonville, FL
Oct 04 2012 2:00p

One Spark is the world's first crowdfunding festival where you can come and support inspiration in person and in real-time. 

The fastest way for people to launch ideas is to have all of the resources they need in one place and at one time. One Spark is an event that brings those people (artists, technologists, scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, and the public) together for 5 days. During One Spark 2013 each of these folks will share their prototypes, experiments and projects in a really cool way by using downtown Jacksonville as a platform. Any place can be a venue (parking lots, businesses, restaurants, parks, etc.) and anyone can enter as a creator.

What do you get when you take some people who are into science, art, handmade goods, strange hobbies, and all kinds of media, put them in a room, and give them no agenda? Come and find out! We have been getting together for more than 5 and a half years now and having a great time meeting new friends, collaborators and people who "get it".

The Falcon Bar is a semi-permanent home for us, and with a few dollars of Graffiti Junktion credit to spend, we might even be able to provide some food this month.

Tell a friend, stop by after work, beat the heat of the afternoon and grab a craft beer or a glass of wine in downtown Orlando. You won't regret it.

Thanks to Barry Kirsch for our new promo picture!
