FLCreatives Happy Hour #67 at Falcon Bar

Florida Creatives Happy Hour

Location

The Falcon Bar / Mother Falcon Clothing
817 E Washington St corner of Hyer Ave
Orlando, FL 32801
Phone: 407-423-3060
Community or Meetup: 
Jun 18 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.

Falcon Bar was very good to us in April - let's pay them another visit. I'd love to talk about the idea of holding small unconferences throughout the year with a focused mission. We have so much to share, why do it just once a year?

Thanks to Barry Kirsch for our new promo picture!

FLCreatives Happy Hour #66 at Orlando Fringe Beer Tent

FLCreatives at Orlando Fringe

Location

Orlando Fringe / Loch Haven Park
812 E Rollins St Beer Tent
Orlando, FL 32803
Community or Meetup: 
May 21 2012 6:00p - 9:00p

The Orlando International Fringe Theatre Festival is one of the most anticipated and creatively freewheeling events we have in Orlando, and our May happy hour has always taken place under their sacred Beer Tent. Your beer money all goes to support this non-profit festival and make sure independent theatre has a place to grow and thrive every year.

Usually we hang out under the beer tent for a little while and take advantage of the food trucks parked on the green lawn (bring cash), and follow that up with a show or two at the festival.

Some shows I am suggesting that have some appeal to Florida Creatives:

  • Connected at 5:45
  • Scientist Turned Comedian at 7:30
  • Medicine at 11:00

There are tons of great shows, and probably several you would like to see if you check out the complete list, so please don't hesitate to make a suggestion (take a look at Page 8 of this PDF for the Monday schedule).

What?

Social data is exploding and scientists, like Hilary, are gaining new insights into human behavior. But how can we use this data to create something meaningful? How can all of us - scientists, developers, artists, and other innovators - work together to build tools or products that make the world more productive, interesting and beautiful?

Join 501c3 Urban ReThink for an inspirational day with a leading creative mind. May 6th, 2012 at 1:30pm at Urban ReThink, 625 E Central Blvd. There will be a special luncheon at noon before the talk for sponsors of the event. See Urban ReThink for sponsor opportunities.

This event is essential a road show version of the Annual Independent  Inventors Conference that has been held at the USPTO offices in D.C. the last couple of years.

The event also includes speakers to address the commercialization of intellectual property which is something you won't easily find in books or online.
