Austin Tech Happy Hour on Thursday

Thursday, April 17th at Dogwood, 6pm – 8pm

This will be our first event at a different venue in a long, long time. Our home venue, Molotov, has been purchased and is slated for shut down and re-branding. We don’t want to get you too far out of your groove though, so we’re heading next door to the Dogwood for your happy hour pleasure.

There are a limited number of free tickets available, then a bigger batch of early bird specials, and finally a pre-registration discount. If you miss all of those, you can pay the full price of $10 at the door.

This event is at a bar, so you must be 21+ to get in. Every person that attends will receive two drink tickets.
