New to Meetup, New to Austin? Tis time for a New Member Meetup! 4 groups


Welcome all to Austin and to Meetup! Come on out and make new friends in the New Year.

You don't have to be new to Meetup to join in and welcome everyone! The newbies will want to know all about Austin. We will be crawling along Rainey Street. A street filled with houses that have been turned into bars.

Where: 9pm-10:30 Bangers- 79 Rainey Street. We will be outside at the tall pub style tables, not the picnic tables. http://www.yelp.com/biz/bangers-sausage-house-and-beer-garden-austin

10:30-11:45 Icenhauers-83 Rainey Street. We will be outside by the big fireplace. http://www.yelp.com/biz/icenhauers-austin-2

12-2 Bungalow- 90 Rainey Street. We will be inside. http://www.yelp.com/biz/bungalow-austin#query:bungalow%20bar

How to find us: At the first bar Bangers, I will have name tags on the tall pub style tables outside. Not the picnic tables. I will update everyone as to what I'm wearing the day of.

How to find us after the 1st bar: You will have had a chance to get to know everyone by name, so time to yank those name tags off! For the guys the theme is I wear my sunglasses at night or you can wear black. If you chose to wear sunglasses you can wear them on your head or on your shirt collar. Austin is known for its Risky Business style sunglasses! For the ladies you can wear sunglasses as well or wear black.

In the comments below let everyone know where you have lived! Its a good way to meet a friend that may have lived in your same city.

    My first meetup, and it was a lot of fun. I will say that our second bar wasn't conducive to a huge group.

    Showed up to meet 150 people "supposedly" and it turns out I was the only one there. Is this a real group or what? Just moved and was hoping to meet new people only to find out that I was completely solo. Not a happy camper right now. :(

    Parking - There's a parking garage on 2nd Street, here's the link. http://www.austinconventioncenter.com/directions/directions.htm

    There's also paid meter Street parking but it fills up quickly. There's one more paid lot at 97 Rainey Street, across the street from Bar 96. Its $10.

    The parking garage on 2nd is $6, I think and it's a quick 2 block walk to Rainey Street.
