Spring Celebration

Normally in February we try to have a meeting that is more of a celebration, mostly because February was the month we launched NashBI. This year we ran into issues with weather and finding a location to have such a party. So many places are too small or too expensive ($500 (just for space) – $2400 (with steak)). Now that we have finally worked out the details we are proud to announce our party details and are delighted to invite NashSQL!

Why did we invite those guys? I don’t know, seems like they are ok peeps and we are going to try to do more things together. If you haven’t noticed, we’ve even secured new MATCHING logos. We have lots of fun things to share.

This year we will be meeting at Tin Roof 2 on Carothers in Cool Springs.  We’ll have plenty of time to socialize, eat, drink, and be merry! We have gift bags for everyone and are collecting tons of prizes to give away for the evening. You can’t win if you aren’t there. We’ll get there early (5p-5:15p) to set things up, but feel free to join us and help out or just hang out.

We plan on having a short meeting, just to make some announcements, let our event sponsors speak for a few minutes and then we’ll be making teams to play a Jeopardy!-style trivia game. Don’t worry we won’t make you answer in the form of a question. Currently the team with the highest score will get bragging rights but there should be plenty of prizes to go around.

At 8pm the bar has their own trivia night, so feel free to grab a table and round up a team. You should be all warmed up from our activities.


Now the details:

When:  Tuesday April 25th

Where: Tin Roof 2

5:45 PM Food will be set up, there will be a “bar food” buffet (So, this better be your cheat day.)
6:00 PM Announcements/Sponsor comments/How the game works/Team Selection (I’ll give you a hint, more than likely by table.)
PLAY! Laugh! Learn!
We’ll be taking commercial breaks to allow for more food consumption and beverage buying.

Your food will be covered, but it is BYOB (Buy Your Own Beverage). Tin Roof says you can open a tab and order off the menu if you’d like. They are also allowing us to spill over down stairs, so you will see shuffling of some folks back and forth. We will need you to sign in and get a name tag–we love community, but don’t want to feed the whole bar.
