Top 5 Bay Area Events
Fri, 8/19/16 | 12pm – 8:30pm | Free | Razer Store San Francisco
Even with all of the Pokemon Go coverage, we still miss the good ol’ days. What are they? Pokemon cards of course! This Friday, you can watch the Pokemon World Championships and relive your childhood. Although the championship isn’t open to the public, you can check out the action at the Razer Store’s viewing party! In addition, this party will have tons of raffles and giveaways. If you’re a Pokemon fan, dress up in your best costume and play Pokemon Go with the masses!
Fri, 8/19/16 | 6pm – 8:30pm | $10, buy here | Startup Basecamp
As you grow older, it’s harder to find and connect with like-minded people! Thus, Startup Basecamp was created to give entrepreneurs, startup professionals, investors, and digital nomads a place to both live and work! Not only is this a cheap alternative to hotels but it also gives professionals a way to connect. To celebrate the opening of their newest motel, Startup Basecamp is hosting a launch party with an open bar, refreshments, and a DJ. Come join in, network, and connect!

Startup Monday is ABCey’s weekly post that features some of the best and brightest companies. They are often companies that we have our eye on or have worked with in the past & would like to share with friends and followers of ABCey Events!
