When we planned our mini meet-up series, we expected a few geeks in a bar somewhere drinking and swapping stories about C#. Nothing prepared us for the onslaught. At one point, 1,256 of us filled all three floors of Bar 13, a techno club near Union Square, and for most of the night I was jostled, bumped, and generally mauled by the crowd. It was, in a word, amazing.
If you missed it, shame on you. If you were there and we talked, email me. I do, however, hope you enjoyed what amounted to TechCrunch’s triumphant return to the New York start-up scene.
We’d like to thank our excellent and kind volunteers and our sponsors: Yext, Traducto, WhatRunsWhere, Parlor, MyGenie, Return on Change (RoC), PeoplePerHour, and TouchTunes Interactive Networks. We had some great karaoke courtesy of our last sponsor and we had, quite literally, hundreds of pizzas thanks to MyPizza.com.
We’re planning some upcoming events in Philadelphia, Boston, and then another run down through Charlotte, Raleigh, and Atlanta with a pop-over to Savannah as well. If you’re in those cities, contact me at email@example.com.
It was great to see you guys last night. Thanks for coming out and thanks for making the meet-up a success. Hopefully we’ll see you at Disrupt in a few weeks.
