Thursday, July 8, 11 a.m. – 12 p.m. – Lincoln Startup Drinks, Coffee Edition

The Cup (643 South 25th Street, Suite 7)

We’re going to try a daytime coffee meetup for the July Startup Drinks. To avoid the 4th festivities we’re having it on the second Thursday of July, the 8th at the Cup from 11 a.m. to noon.

For the uninformed: “the Cup” is probably the best coffee house in Lincoln. It’s located at 643 South 25th Street, Suite 7, which is in the Historic Bottler’s Building at 25th and Randolph Street.

Hopefully this time will work for people still working for  the man to make it over their lunch hour as well as for those of us with slightly more flexible schedules.
