Still recovering from that Super Bowl party you went to last night?
Well, get some coffee and shake off that headache. Our event calendar is packed with worthy events and it would be best if you paid attention.

On Thursday, Hive76 hosts the Philly robotics meetup and cap your week off by taking PhillyCHI up on its offer of design-focused quizzo.
And, if you’re still feeling some withdraw from football, click through for your event highlights. This time with 60 percent more sports references.
All events listed on the event calendar are free to attend. Be sure to check our complete calendar for more.


Monday, February 8th: As covered on this very site, Avencia’s Walkshed project covers the “walkability” of our city’s blocks. Creator Aaron Ogle has invited Refresh Philly attendees to Avencia’s office to talk about the project as well as its entry in the NYC BigApps content. Don’t know if you’ve heard, but the last time Philadelphia competed in NYC, it didn’t work out. Why can’t us? 6:30 p.m. Callowhill. DETAILS. [view more events]
Thursday, February 11th: Postponed from last month, the Philadelphia robotics meetup promises “filter based Inertial Measurement Unit code for our Quadrotor controller board.” Yeah, we don’t know either. We’re not going to lie to you though, we were hesitant to recommend the meetup. The last thing Philly needs is the looming threat of robotic-like humans. Plus, we already have Andy Reid’s press conferences. 7:30 p.m. Callowhill. DETAILS. [view more events]
Thrusday, February 11th: If robots aren’t your thing but CSS is, PhillyCHI is hosting design Quizzo at National Mechanics. The group promises questions about “technology, design, architecture, and other related topics.” What that really means, of course, is that you don’t have to bring along your jock friend just for the sports questions. 8:00 p.m. Old City. RSVP. [view more events]
