The next Hardware Happy Hour (3H) Chicago is Tuesday, January 15:
Bring all of your holiday gadgets and gizmos! Did you build a blinky Christmas tree ornament? Did you get a new scope from Santa? Did you take apart some toys? Bring it all to the meetup!
We’re trying out a new location for the new year! Come have a pint, show off your latest project and get to know your fellow Chicago tinkerers.
The next Hardware Happy Hour (3H) Chicago is on Tuesday, September 11th, at On Tour Brewing Company
Note: you do NOT need to be a founder to attend. As long as you enjoy chatting about hardware, then you should have a good time at 3H 🙂
