Event highlights for the week of August 31 – September 6, 2009

Linux, NetSquared and Two Guys on Beer

Good God, it’s September already.
Which means it is time to stop blaming your recent lazy streak on the freggin’ hot August weather to prepare for a week chock-full of events. Actually, scratch that. You should prepare for a Tuesday chock-full of events.
Due to some strange alignment of the heavens, all of the events on our calendar happen to be taking place on Tuesday.
The only logical thing to do, of course, is to frantically try to attend all the events like that Flintstones episode where Fred has to be at Pebbles’ birthday party and the lodge on the same night.
First you’ll have to head on over to Buffalo Billiards to attend Net Tuesday, then hop over to Old City for Indy Hall’s birthday party. After you are done drinking with the Two Guys on Beer, you should cap it all off with the Linux meetup.
Tuesday, September 1: At Philly NetSquared, speaker Judah Frest will look at the best Web portals you can use to raise money for your non-profit. Frest is the President of Buzzing4Change, a charity focused on gathering college students to donate hair for the Locks of Love charity. 6:30 p.m. Center City. RSVP. [view more events]
Tuesday, September 1: The Philadelphia Linux Users’ group (fans of the third most popular operating system) will be gathering at the University of the Sciences (the third most popular university in University City) to talk about women in free and open source software. Set to speak is Elizabeth Krumbach who also runs a Princess Leia fan site. 7:00 p.m. University City. INFO. [view more events]
Tuesday, September 1: Well wouldn’t you know, local coworking space Indy Hall is turning two this month. And in true Indy Hall fashion, the event is being combined with the 100th episode of the Indy Hall Labs podcast Two Guys on Beer who will be holding an open challenge to drink all challengers under the table. I may have made that last part up. To attend, head on over to National Mechanics and be sure to bring your iPhone — the bar allows you to vote for the next song on the jukebox using the “remote” application. 7:00 p.m. Old City. RSVP.
