TECH cocktail Chicago 10
hopefully everyone who came out for tech cocktail chicago last thursday night had as great a time as i did. i knew it would be a popular event, being in it’s flagship city, but i was not prepared for the completely packed house at john barleycorn’s in wrigleyville. it was a blast and i took as many pics as i could (yep – breaking in the new camera!).

from a tech perspective – tech cocktail is an excellent way to learn about new startups and meet lots of interesting people from all aspects of our industry. i always walk away feeling like i met great people who i can continue to connect with online via twitter, linked in and of course the tech cocktail online community. i also thought the new “town hall” eric and frank launched before the event was refreshing – an opportunity to hear from the community their thoughts about tech cocktail and its mission.

from a photography perspective – most of you know i work in the tech industry but i never stray too far from a camera. shooting this event was a perfect mix of my two loves. and since this was my first outing with the new camera, it was a bit like being thrown into the deep end..or, er.. jumping into a new code base.  heh. it was a great excuse to interrupt small groups and jump into conversations.

if you weren’t in chicago last week, no worries – there’s another tech cocktail on february 26th in washington dc.  it’ll be at the left bank in adams morgan. sign up, come for a drink, check out some startups and say hello.  i’ll be there again, camera in hand. cheers!
