Rainbow Connections: April 2016

Spring is here and that means it’s time to get out there and make some new connections and grow your social circle. Gay in Austin moved their April networking happy hour to the end of March due to a conflict on the originally planned date and Austin Pride debuts their new networking happy hour this month.

Austin Pride First Friday Happy Hour

Austin Pride kicks off it’s new monthly First Friday happy hour series down in the Warehouse District at Rain on 4th. Find out more about what Austin Pride has coming up and they’ve gotten in a batch of pride shirts, so here’s the time to replace your worn out ones from last year. Plus, they’re raffling off tickets to the Austin International Drag Festival, coming up at the end of this month.

Rain on 4th, 217 W. 4th St., Austin TX 78701. Friday, April 1, 2016, 5 – 9 PM. 21+. FREE.

AGLCC Monthly Networking Luncheon

This month’s AGLCC luncheon takes us downtown to MAX’s Wine Dive on San Jacinto Blvd. There is speaker scheduled, so be prepared to network your way through the crowd, before, during and after lunch. Due to space limitations, and the growing popularity of the Chamber’s luncheons, you are strongly encouraged to RSVP early to ensure that space is available. The event does sell out regularly. Downtown parking is always a hassle, we recommend you give yourself extra time to get to the venue, or consider using alternative options getting there.

Held on the first Tuesday of each month, the Austin Gay &Lesbian Chamber of Commerce’s monthly networking luncheon is geared towards business owners and professionals, both LGBTQ and allied, looking for potential leads for new business. The crowd is fairly mixed, industry-wise, and fairly large for a luncheon with 60-75 attendees on average.

MAX’s Wine Dive, 207 San Jacinto Blvd, Austin TX 78701. Tuesday, April 5, 2016, 11 AM – 1 PM. All ages. Advance registration: $15/members, $20/non-members. On-site registration: $25 (space permitting).

AGLCC Networking Happy Hour

This month, the AGLCC hosts its monthly networking happy hour down off South Congress at The Great Outdoors, which has been in the news recently over issues with the Austin Code Department over a permit oversight from 1994. So come out and show your support for Tom Tingley and The Great Outdoors.

Like the Chamber’s luncheon, the crowd is evenly mixed and attendees will vary depending on venue and location. Unlike the luncheons, there is typically no programming other than a few announcements towards the end of the event. The happy hour are always free to attend.

The Great Outdoors Nursery, 2730 S Congress Ave, Austin TX 78704. Thursday, April 21, 2016, 6:30 – 8:30 PM. 18+. FREE.
