We’ve waited all summer long and it’s finally here. Baltimore Innovation Week presented by 14 West is back and ready to do it big for the fifth year of BIW.

Just as a weeklong celebration deserves, we’re kicking it all off in a major way. Technical.ly has partnered with The Gathering (in all of its yumminess) for the BIW16 Kickoff Festival. It’s all going down at Hollywood Diner from 5- 10 p.m.

Bring your friends and family to grab dinner, jam out to a live DJ and interact with the region’s coolest technologies.

Here are the awesome things to expect tomorrow night:
