Austin Tech Happy Hour

The Austin Tech Happy Hour is the place for the emerging technology community to relax and network with each other. Come and meet the people you've friended, added, and twittered, discuss current technology innovations, and perhaps even find a candidate to add to your team!

This is our most popular happy hour of the year, sponsored this year by Microsoft and Spiceworks. No SXSW badge required, but you must register to attend, as this event will sell out.

$10 Pre-registration fee

SpareFoot Storage Facility Party

- Free pre-SXSW show at a storage facility
- Full bar staffed by Austin Personal Bartenders featuring signature drink The Big Unit and office favorite White Russians
- DJ Erock spinning mashups and good music from 6-9p
- Austin locals Cartright (http://www.myspace.com/cartrightmusic) playing from 9-10p
- Chance to meet the company founders, Chuck Gordon and Mario Feghali, if you're into that sort of thing

Kick off SXSW 2011 right - go to a storage facility party.

SpareFoot is proud to present the first ever party and concert at a storage facility. We're not talking about a single unit here - Morningstar Mini-Storage has partnered with us to provide access to the facility to host the final stop of the Startup Crawl (http://www.atxstartupcrawl.com/).

The event is free, with no badge or wristband required. You must RSVP here to ensure entry. We will be checking IDs at the door - 18+ are welcome, but you won't be enjoying the full bar unless you're 21.

Kick off the crazy week with a gigantic beer at the Big Ass Social Happy Hour! Austinites know how to party and if you're from out of town, you would be remiss if you didn't come to the LOCALS' party

ANNIE RAY will have her famed photobooth up again and MIGUEL ANGEL will be our roving photographer, so put on your fake lashes and shiny shoes, y'all!

We do this every month and the only difference in March is that we welcome foreigners (people from outside of Austin), so check in to your fancy hotel and get a pedicab to take you to The Belmont, we'll be waiting to welcome you to town!
