Update 3:42 p.m. 8/30/12: TechBreakfast organizer Ron Schmelzer says that Meetup recorded the number of attendees at 165. “People were popping in and out,” he said in an e-mail.

Close to 120 of the 250 registered participants showed up to this month’s Baltimore TechBreakfast, which featured updates from year-old startups Parking Panda and KnotFriends, both of which presented at a Baltimore TechBreakfast in September 2011.

You know the drill: good crowd, demos from a half dozen growing tech startups from the broad region and lots of coffee.

Find a wrap  up of the five presenting startups, which were supplemented by a visit from new city CTO Chris Tonjes, below.

Parking Panda, the parking reservation web (and now mobile) application created by Adam Zilberbaum and Nick Miller during last year’s Startup Weekend, is expanding to San Francisco in mid-September, and then to Philadelphia shortly thereafter. For now, it’s taking care of all parking needs during this weekend’s Grand Prix.

KnotFriends now has 75 users and more than 100 ties available on its online tie-swapping directory.

RenterResu.me is the “Match.com of great landlords and renters,” says co-founder Joshua Hines. People searching for apartments pay a one-time fee of $35 to fill out RenterResu.me’s online application. Once completed, they’re presented with a list of apartments best suited to their preferences. Landlords are then presented with a list of the most eligible renters. Hines says RenterResu.me will come out in the first quarter of 2013.

SurveySnap is a new app to help architects, engineers and real estate developers complete and digitize building surveys. Founder Ryan Sears says the product is “80 percent done,” and his goal is to launch the mobile app this quarter.

Mindgrub Technologies, which has grown from 10 to 50 employees in the last year, is making forays into mobile gaming. One of its new games, TAG, is a mobile assassination game available for iPhone only. (The Android version is coming soon.) Played among a group of friends, each person is assigned another player to “assassinate,” which is done by finding the person using geo-locating capabilities, lining them up in a pair of on-screen crosshairs and clicking the take-photo button on the iPhone.
