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.

Community or Meetup: 
Apr 16 2012 6:00p - 9:00p

Join Orlando's longest-running creative meetup to celebrate our 5th year of bringing likeminded people together. You can get great benefits out of meeting new people, like stimulating your brain, having a safe (non-judgemental) place to talk shop, finding someone to help you build that next startup, or just making friends.

This month the fine Falcons from Thornton Park actually requested our presence. I think that might be the first time a venue reached out to us! This place has an art gallery vibe, and is in the best neighborhood (I think so, at least).

This month's happy hour is also just days after BarCamp Orlando, which got started at one of our original Likemind meetups back in the day!

Thanks to Barry Kirsch for our new promo picture!

Community or Meetup: 
Mar 19 2012 6:00p - 9:00p

You can get great benefits out of meeting new people, like stimulating your brain, having a safe (non-judgemental) place to talk shop, finding someone to help you build that next startup, or just making friends.

The who live/work in East Orlando will get some due for a) being noisy and b) being present at last month's Happy Hour (seriously how could you guys miss out on free beer?). Therefore we are venturing on to the UCF campus near the stadium for the Tailgaiters Smoke House experience.

If we keep this up maybe we can eventually have more than one Happy Hour a month... (Dr. Evil Pinky)?

Also curious how we get some students - Marketing, Communications, Digital Media, Computer Science, Creative Writing, etc to attend these if we keep doing them in their back yard. Discuss!

Urban ReThink is, incedentally, where some left-over beer from our holiday party is awaiting our arrival. If we are dying to have mac & cheese again, maybe we can take up a collection, or find someone who wants to sponsor?

Chris Stapleton and Dana S Mott (you remember Dana from Happy Hours at Crooked Bayou) will be hosting the first-ever PlayTank at Urban ReThink, culminating during our event. Their project this month will be re-thinking the book. More details to come.
