Drop in from 6 to 6:30, check-in with a Startup Grind team member, and fill out a name tag.
Boxes and boxes of hot delicious pizza from our friends at Slice will be available to fill your vegetarian or omnivore dinner needs.
But what good is pizza without beer? No need to fear! Two ice chests filled to the brim with a mix of local craft beers will be nearby to cool you off in this dense summer heat. Red and white wines are also cool so they'll be around as well.
Then we invite you take a lap, say hi to old friends, make some new friends, and relax before Dave takes his spot in front of the crowd.
