It’s the most wonderful time of the year and I ain’t talkin’ about Christmas. This week is Dallas Start Up Week, and it consists of my favorite things, start-ups, happy hours and pure chaos. If you’re like me and literally sprinting (made it on time though) from event to event, you’re going to need a good night out by the time Friday rolls around, preferably without more sponsor tequila cocktails. Text that cute coder you just met and get going!

Dinner at Sapa House (1623 Main Street, Suite 102, Dallas). These events usually mean free food, but five days of complimentary Jimmy John’s and pizza take a toll on you. Instead, we’re going to stop by Sapa House for something a little lighter before continuing on to the final event of the week. Take advantage of their happy hour from 3-7 and order up some of the small plates like Vietnamese nachos, dumplings and their sea-salted calamari. Then it’s time to party on, Garth.

Chase Wrap Up Party at Deep Ellum Brewing Co. (2823 St. Louis Street, Dallas). Whether you made it to one event or 12, everyone is welcome to Chase’s Wrap Up Party, taking place at local favorite Deep Ellum Brewing Company. Network, drink and grab some elotes tots (!!!) as everyone collectively celebrates surviving the crazy week. I’ll be the one asleep in the corner, but if you buy me a beer I’ll pretend to understand what your tech company does.
