BarCamp Texas changing venues

Just got home to this email:

BarCamp was built on the spirit of Spontaneity, Flexibility, and Teamwork -- so, in true BarCamp fashion we are changing venues in the 11th hour. Due to unforeseen circumstances, The Thistle Café has decided not to host BarCampTexas. But don't despair -- the event will go on as planned (BIGGER AND BETTER THAN EVER). Thanks to the tireless dedication of your hosts, here is your new schedule of events:

Friday Evening (August 25th) Pre-Event Mixer: 8:00PM til ...
Location: Epoch Coffee (map)
Austin's newest and only independent 24hr coffeehouse is located just minutes north of downtown, in the North Loop neighborhood. Courtesy of GeekAustin, we will be pouring Austin's own Live Oak Hefeweizen .

Saturday (August 25th)BarCampTexas: 12 noon - 10PM
Location: Elysium (map)
Following the departure of Thistle Cafe, Elysium has graciously offered to host BarCampTexas. Elysium is a 4 time winner of the Chronicle's Best of Austin award for best dance club.

Saturday (August 25th)
BarCampTexas Brunch 11AM - 2PM at Triumph Cafe ( map)

Additionally, all presentations in the main stage area at BarCampTexas will now be podcast! We will have two screens setup for presentations at the venue on Saturday Afternoon. One 6x9 screen with front projection, and one 7x10 screen with rear projection (on the main stage). We will have signs and people posted outside the Thistle all day Saturday to direct campers to the new venue. I look forward to seeing you all at the Pre-event Mixer tomorrow night at Epoch Coffee -- Remember the Beers on us!!! (Be sure to pack your ID's if you are planning to drink).
