Hello , My name is Mike a and I run all the Chicago meet ups here in Austin ,and I would like to welcome you our group. Our home bar for the Bears and other Chicago Sports is The Thirsty Nickel located at 325 E 6th on the SW corner of 6th and Trinity. Our events are oriented towards adults. This does mean no minors, because many of our events are at a bar, and bringing kids would be illegal. If you are a parent I am sorry. Its the Law. Our activities range from Chicago Sports watch parties, 16" Softball ( they dont play it here you cant even find a ball in the stores), Bar Crawls, Scavenger hunts and sometimes just get together to watch Chicago Base movies at Alamo Draft House. Our events are also sponsored by Budweiser, and Chicago's own Goose Island Brewing Company. Below this you will see all the links to all of our facebook pages that are much more interactive. Our Bears page has over 1,300 people and our Blackhawks page has over 800. This past Stanley Cup Final, our group was on NBC twice for their #MyPlayoffMoments, and next year we will be the first official Blackhawks sponsored bar in Texas.Here is a video of our Blackhawks Watch Party that made it on NBC at our home bar Thirsty Nickel

Our Next event is a Bears Pre Season party Barge on Lake Travis. Where Food and Beer will be provided. Everyone that attends will also get a Bears Beach Towel. The day of that event is on Labor Day weekend Sunday September 6th from 6pm till 10pm. People are free to bring their own food and alcohol as well. The cost for that is $40.00 per person and the first 50 people that sign up can attend , right now we are at 26 people leaving 24 spots.This is a 21+ event. You can pay at our online store here -

I should also mention that every single one of our get Events is a fundraiser for Make-A-Wish of Central and Southern Texas. At game watch parties, we do raffles of autographs Chicago Sports memorabilia, and sell T-Shirts, and Koozies to raise money for this awesome charity. Local Time Warner News covered us last season. Pardon the video and sound quality. -

Thanks for joining the group, and if you have any questions please reach out to me, Mike
