Urban Geek Drinks MKE

Urban Geek Drinks, is a monthly happy hour for a diverse group of civic do-gooders in Milwaukee. It’s an opportunity for you to connect with other people who give a damn and are working incredibly hard to make Milwaukee a really great city. We believe that some of the toughest challenges our cities face require multidisciplinary solutions that demand that we reach well beyond our organizational, professional, and generational boundaries. Creating an opportunity for a diverse group of people to come together on a regular basis in the same space (with a beer) can be an important start towards fomenting great things.

When else do you get to hang out with urban farmers, civic technologists, journalists, makers, hackers, designers, teachers, students, artists, civil servants, philanthropists, community builders, and urban planners who are all working incredibly hard to do great things in MKE?

Other than filling out a conversational name tag, nope! Other meetups do a great job with presentation style formats. We think it’s important to have an opportunity to simply have a beer and strike up a conversation with someone else working hard to do great things in Milwaukee.

    Great to meet new people doing great work in the city around municipal finances, the airport's economic development, public health, neighborhood data, mobile gaming and other great ideas! Thanks for showing up!

    Leland - the Urban Geek Drinks I've been involved with in Chicago, definitely mobile game developers were there. This is the first one in Milwaukee. Any one who cares about cities, about urban problems and opportunities, is welcome. We're aiming for a cross-generational, cross-discipline, racially-diverse crowd. Please join us.

    Is a glass full or half empty? It depends if you are filling or drinking it.
