You're invited to attend Silicon Hills News' 2nd annual Austin calendar party. This year, we'll be hosting the party at Galvanize.
And everyone gets a 2017 SHN Austin Tech Calendar.
We'll have Alamo Beer, Foodie Pinot Noir, Foodie White Wine, Tito's, Topo Chico, La Croix Sprakling Water, VERTS Meditarrean Grill Buffet, Mexican Wedding Cookies, Almond Cookies, Fortune Cookies, DJ, Photo Booth and more and lots of fun and networking with the best and brightest in the Austin technology community. Plus you'll get to meet this year's Austin calendar pin-ups and the photographer John Davidson behind the project.
Thank you to Tito's Vodka for being our spirits sponsor. (Isn't that cool - we have a spirits sponsor?) Tito's established Texas' first licensed still and Brett Beveridge, the founder and Tito behind the brand, pioneered the way for all these other spirits makers to have such success in Texas.
We will be giving away a few bottles of Tito's as door prizes to attendees. (Must be present to win)
BIG THANK YOU: VERTS Meditarren Grill will be serving a buffet. A HUGE THANK YOU to VERTS.
