As we mentioned before, we were floating the idea of a mini meet up in our own back yard and we definitely got quite a bit of interest. So here we go: Get ready for the TC NYC Mini-Meet Up on May 8 at Bar13. We’ll run from 6pm until about 10pm, with potential evening activities for those still in the mood.
Note that the date and location have changed since our last post. We would have completely filled the AOL offices if we tried to do it there.
This isn’t a seminar, panel, a conference, or really anything that requires people to sit down at a desk and look through a PowerPoint. Instead, we simply want to look upon your beautiful faces and hear about how you plan on disrupting the world through technology. Over beers.
We’ll meet on May 8 (that’s a Tuesday) at Bar13, located at 35 East 13th St. and University Pl. The meet-up will begin promptly at 6pm and will end around 10pm, at which point we can all caravan to a bar for an after party.
We’re also looking for sponsors. The more the merrier (since that means more beer). If you’re interested in a sponsorship, please send an email to john (at) techcrunch dot com with the subject: NY Meetup Sponsorship.
To RSVP to the event, head over to our PlanCast page.
Finally, if you’d like to connect with us pre-show time, you can follow me on Twitter at @jordanrcrook or John at @johnbiggs.
