You can find us in the club, bottle full of bub…

Oh, hi.

It was this same day in 2006 when Tech Cocktail hosted its very first mixer in Lincoln Park, Chicago.  More than 200 local tech enthusiasts packed STATE to do what they love most: drink cocktails and talk tech.  Over the last six years, we’ve had the pleasure of hosting hundreds of events in more than 30 cities across the country (and Canada &  Spain!).  Although the accents, scenery, and weather may change, one aspect remains the same – the spirited technophile.

The only fitting way to celebrate Tech Cocktail’s 6th birthday is to showcase the most essential mixer ingredient – YOU.  Below is a collection of Tech Cocktail’s 132 favorite event photos from more than 13 cities over the last 6 years.

Browse by city:  Boston | Boulder | Champaign | Chicago | DC | Los Angeles | Minneapolis | NYC | Phoenix | San Diego | San Francisco | Seattle | SXSW

Also, we invite you to test your hand in a game of “Tech Celebrity Bingo.” See if you can spot the following tech celebs in the photos below:
