Say goodbye to the old and welcome the new with your fellow hacks and hackers. Mingle in a two-level 9,000-square foot Obie Award-winning cultural venue. Claim a spot in the island seating on the 1,600-square foot lake. Groove to Rana Sobhany's DJing on the iPad and Erik Hinton on his turntables. Eat delectable treats provided by Crave Catering of Carroll Gardens (http://cravecateringny.com/).
Cash bar. No charge at the door, but there is limited capacity. Please RSVP, as priority will be given to people who are on the guest list if we reach capacity at peak periods during the night. Note that being on the RSVP list is no guarantee of entry if the venue is packed, so come earlier rather than later.
Have something you'd like to contribute to the party? Prizes, sponsorship, video art, volunteering? We'd love to hear from you. Hacks/Hackers is a community effort. Email nyc[at]hackshackers[dot]com.
