First TECH cocktail 7.6.06 @ STATE
May 25, 2006
We are pleased to announce the first ever TECH cocktail event is scheduled for Thursday, July 6, 2006 from 6:30 to 9pm at State in Lincoln Park in Chicago, Illinois. STATE is one of Chicago’s new hot spots, conveniently located in Lincoln Park and appealing to both tech-savvy and socially engaged clientele.
Stormhoek wine, from the South African winery where “freshness matters,” has donated wine for guests as the featured wine of the event. The wine will be available for free as part of Stormhoek’s 100 Geek Dinner series which you might have heard about from Hugh MacLeod of GapingVoid.com. If wine does not suit your fancy, State is currently a BYOB venue – so feel free to bring your own favorite!
YOU MUST RSVP VIA THE COMMENT SECTION BELOW IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO ATTEND (feel free to leave your name, blog/website and/or company).
We hope that you join us for an evening of fun mingling with other technology enthusiasts, VCs, bloggers and entrepreneurs. A few of the hottest Chicago startups will be demoing their products. Additionally, we will be giving away a few products from Apple and local startup RipIt Digital. Our hope is that TECH cocktail events (quarterly mixers for bloggers, technology enthusiasts, entrepreneurs and other business professionals interested in the technology arena in Chicago) can help build a better connected Midwest tech community by meeting up to share ideas and have some fun.
