On Wednesday, Aug. 12, join us at The Shambles at Headhouse Square for a meeting of Philly’s leading tech and entrepreneurial meetup groups.
Have a beer, grab a snack and hear about their latest projects and events. It’s the Philly Super Meetup, organized by Technical.ly.
The idea of the Super Meetup is simple: meetups are integral to any tech scene. Every now and then, it makes sense to rally the leaders of tech-related meetups in town and gather for one big mixer. The idea is to connect people with groups they may not have otherwise known about.
It’s not the kind of thing you can do every month, but do it every now and then, and it has a certain magic.
New to the city? Looking to network? Want to learn more about community resources? This event is for you.
And it’s free!
The following groups will definitely be represented. Holler at us if any other groups would like to be included!

Weather: We’re doing this rain or shine. The Shambles is a covered pavilion, so just worry about showing up.
This is an all ages event. But you must show valid ID to enjoy the free beers.
Here’s the fun stuff you can expect: Free Yuengling and Neshaminy Creek Brewing Company beers, plus free popsicles from Lil Pop Shop! Check in at the Technical.ly table to get a ticket to redeem your free pop. Here are the flavors that will be available:
- Chocolate with Salted Caramel Brownies
- Coconut Hibiscus
- Grapefruit Rosemary
- Watermelon Lemonade
- Earl Grey with Black Pepper
- Vanilla Bean with Sprinkles
Look forward to free cold-brew coffee courtesy of HubBub Coffee! Working with their friends at ReAnimator Coffee, HubBub spent months dialing in and developing the flavor of the HubBub Cold Brew Blend, which is immediately kegged after brewing. With hints of dark chocolate, apricot, ripe cherry and honeysuckle, it’s perfect for drinking black, or with milk and sugar.
Thanks to Philly New Tech Meetup, Photobot3000 will be there snapping pics. Stop by their table, find out more info about PNTM and grab a fun photo to take home.
Come hungry! We’ll have local food trucks Dos Hermanos Tacos, The Grill Cheese and Philly Fry onsite offering pay-as-you-go concessions. Good times.-30-
