No Startup Drinks January 1

New Year's Eve

Normally we meet on the first Tuesday of each month. In January, that would be January 1. I figure some of you may be taking a well-earned break from partying on New Year’s Day.

So, the next Startup Drinks will be Tuesday, January 8, one week later than normal. Details will be announced here, soon.

Happy Holidays: Upcoming Events!

Ho Ho Ho!

Now that the Holiday season is upon us (as evidenced by the great turnout at our December event last night), there are some announcements to make, particularly about the upcoming Startup Community Holiday Party and the January Startup Drinks.

Startup Community Holiday Party

Jen Bonnett (of ATDC and Startup Chicks fame) has taken the lead in organizing a gala Holiday Party for everyone in the Atlanta Startup Community. Startup Drinks is a sponsor, along with numerous other local groups. It is on Tuesday, January 18 at 6pm at City Hall. It promises to be a blast — music, food, drinks, prizes and fun. Tickets are $15 and are going fast! Jen warns me that attendance is limited and is first come, first served, so go get your tickets now.

Information and tickets are available online here

January Startup Drinks

The January edition of Startup Drinks will be January 8, not January 1. I know that January 1 is the first Tuesday, but that strikes even me as pushing it.

Location is yet to be determined. Watch here for news!

Happy Holidays!

December 4 at The Marlay House

The Marlay House

Our December event is at The Marlay House in Decatur, a cozy Irish pub with a neighborhood feel, friendly staff, and a great beer and whisky list — which makes it one of our favorite places. And to add some incentive, we’ve got a special deal with for a ride to the event (see below)!

As always, we will start at 5pm, and will go until 9:00.

If you’re coming, please help us get the word out: tell your friends, tweet about @atlsuds, like us on Facebook, and sign up on Plancast.

See you there!
