Think Global. Drink Local.
Clive Bar, 609 Davis St., 6:30–midnight

Austin music. Austin food. Austin beer. Join fellow NTCers at Clive Bar on Rainey Street for live Bluegrass from Bottom Dollar String Band, local food, and a “firkin” of beer (small keg) brewed specially for NeonCRM. Every attendee also gets a raffle ticket for the chance to have a meaningful donation made to a charity of your choice! This party is being thrown by NeonCRM, but is a networking opportunity and celebration for NTC attendees… not a “firkin” sales pitch. Stop by booth #422 to get free drink tickets.

1 Night. 7 Containers. Zero excuses.
The Container Bar, 90 Rainey Street, 6:30pm–midnight

Join The Chronicle of Philanthropy for the most memorable night out at Austin’s most talked–about spot, the Container Bar, featuring a variety of open–air and enclosed themed spaces to enjoy food and drinks with your fellow attendees. Open bar starts at 6:30 p.m. at the Container Bar, a short walk from the convention center.

Party Like It's 1996
Bar 96 Rainey Street, 8:00pm–midnight

In 1996, we literally wrote the book on online fundraising … since then, online engagement has certainly evolved! But, for one night only, join the fundraising team from Donordigital for a ‘90s throwback, from 8pm to midnight at Bar 96 (96 Rainey Street). Come meet, socialize, and reminisce about the founding days of fundraising on the Internet with your fellow NTC techies. Don’t forget your NTC Badge for street tacos and drinks, including a taste of our signature e–Martini.

Keep NTC Weird Party
Icenhauer's, 83 Rainey Street, 6:30pm–10:30pm

Wonder why everyone wants to keep Austin weird? Let us show you! Join locals Charity Dynamics, Small World Labs and Kimbia for a completely–Austin experience as we sample some of our city’s best drinks and eats. All while networking and listening to the tunes of a few of our favorite local bands — after all, you are in the Live Music Capital of the World! Join us and help #KeepNTCWeird!

Happy hour AND story time? 

Half Step, 75 1/2 Rainey Street, 7:00pm–9:00pm

What do you get when you combine Mother Jones’ smart, fearless stories with Hatch for Good, a new resource for social impact storytellers supported by The Rockefeller Foundation? A free drink or two, if you’re in Austin for the 2015 NTC. Mother Jones and The Rockefeller Foundation are co-hosting a happy hour from 7 – 9 p.m. at Half Step (75 ó Rainey Street). Make the short walk from the convention center for light snacks and deep conversations about technology, engaged citizens, stories, and social impact.
