AAHH (Awesome Austin Happy Hour)

Awww yeah! It's that time again to have our monthly AAHH event!

I love having this event with this group, you guys and gals are awesome and it is always a great time!

I know with afternoon traffic a 5:30 start time is early but don't be nervous to show up late, we will still be there. Plus since it's a Friday and we will be on Rainy St. there is no doubt that the fun will continue.

New comers welcome!


PS. Please stop stealing my sharpies, it makes me sad face :(

HA!

    September 14, 2012

    • Amanda C.

      I will have the name tags set up on a table. I attend every event I host unless I'm sick or dead. ha fingers crossed neither happen today. I'm wearing a bright yellow shirt, shouldn't be hard to spot me.

      Yeah but don't go using it while wearing a magic pendant. That shit will time travel you.

    If anybody needs a ride after, let me know. I can zip you where you need to go. Unless it's to the moon.

    My ride to karaoke fell through, so if anyone is planning to head there after happy hour, I'd appreciate a ride. Call/text[masked] if you don't mind helping. Thanks!

      Sorry to be spamming the boards, but do we bring our own name tags or is there someone there we need to talk to?

      September 14, 2012

    • Amanda C.

      I got them, no worries

      September 14, 2012

  • Amanda C.

    I think I've got the place! Its new and looks awesome! Plus they are willing to extend their happy hour all night for our group. It is right next to rainy st. They have free parking and vallet if the lot fills up. I'll let you guys know as I hammer out the details. I'm excited!

    September 14, 2012

    • Amanda C.

      I'm going there during my lunch to check it out and make sure it is good enough for us.

    Lustre pearl on rainy is usually pretty good at covering their patio

      Also not to far off from Bangers is Easy Tiger & Violet Crown. I think Violet Crown could have enough room, but not too sure if people are okay with going to the east side

      September 14, 2012

    • peylin

      last time i went to lustre on a rainy night it was no bueno. we were all squished into that tiny house =P

      September 14, 2012

  • Amanda C.

    I just sent out an email but not sure how many of you are able to check your emails during the day. DUE TO THE RAIN

    I am working with Bangers to see if we can get the outside area covered if not then I am going to move the location of the event. I should know by early afternoon, given that most bar people sleep in past noon. Thanks!

      Bangers actually has a fenced in area dedicated for dogs to "mingle" with other dogs. Though with the rain , I don't know how great that will be considering all the mud

    ZOMG! 208 people?!?! This is going to be AWESOME! Which works since it is in the name. Sorry for my lack of comments I've been out of town and ignoring most emails. As Dan stated for those coming late NO WORRIES! If the group moves we'll post it on here. Also, feel free to text or call me (512) 814-7359. Looking forward to having an amazing Friday with you all!

    Hey, I'm new to the whole Meet Up thing-- how exactly does it work? Do we just show up and mingle? Is the only way of knowing if someone is a Meet Up member is asking them?

    In any event, I'm excited for this-- a friend recommend Meet Up to me and I'm eager to see what it's all about! This will be my first Meet Up event!

    September 11, 2012

    • Mara D.

      I have the same question! How does this stuff work??

      September 11, 2012

    • Douglas B

      Usually these happy hours have everyone wearing nametags so you can easily tell who's there for the meetup. On top of that we usually take over the bar and it ends up feeling like everyone is there for the meetup. I've been to 3 of these so far and everyone has been friendly and meeting people who are there for the meetup has been super easy.

      1 · September 11, 2012

  • Rebecca G.

    I work until 530pm in North Austin so I'd definitely be late, how late will people still be there?

      Me too, I'll be leaving the Arboretum around 5:30-6! See you guys there!

      September 10, 2012

    • Dan

      We will be there at Bangers for at least 3 hours. Amanda's Happy Hours are great! We will probably check out other bars too, if you show up late just check the posts!

    This sounds like a blast! I'm a little shy though, because I'll be new to this meet up and don't know anyone.

    I tend to go to Bangers a lot, and am curious if you guys have any reservations setup . Typically Friday/Saturday can get slammed and every time I've gone (outdoor or indoor) the wait can be a bit even for a small party.

    September 9, 2012

    Parking- there's a parking garage at the Austin Convention center on 2nd and San Jacinto. The walk is an easy 3 blocks from Rainey Street. Parking is from 6pm to 2am at a flat rate of $8. http://www.austinconventioncent...

    You can also check the parking lot at Driskil and Rainey Street http://lustrepearlaustin.com/co...

      http://lustrepearlaus...­ a map that shows the parking lot next to Lustre Pearl bar. Its a pay lot, I think around $8

      At 5:30 typically you can park far down rainey off the street for free. Though with this many people if you arrive after 6 or so , I would recommend just seeking out that parking garage .

    So, um... I'm new and was curious - will parking be a problem? And if so, best place to park?

    September 6, 2012

    • peylin

      i have to be honest and tell ya that parking will most likely be a pain...maybe you can park at the convention center? not sure if they have a garage...

      September 6, 2012

    • Dan

      yes see my comments above on parking :)

      September 6, 2012

  • Amanda C.

    For the newbies! I've been to... well let's just say a good amount of meetups and I STILL get nervous and intimidated. BUT this group is fantastic or I wouldn't bother doing this monthly. I get so excited every time we get togehter because I know it will be a great time. I can't wait to meet you all!

    September 5, 2012

  • Joey H.

    It'll be my first Austin meetup as well. Don't worry, they're awesome. Excited to see you all there!
