Columbus? I think we have liftoff!

The first Startup Drinks Columbus event kicked off last night at the Surly Girl Saloon thanks to the efforts of Brian Jones, of Jones Insight, and Ashley Routson, a/k/a the Columbus Beer Wench.
The event was a total success! Driving there, I expected only 5 to 10 people due to the torrential rains. But we had about 25-30 people show up. I met a lot of cool and interesting people that are interested in startups and technology. And they live right here in Columbus. The turnout demonstrates that there is indeed a startup community here. People just have to find one another!
Oh, and Ashley brought along a game of Apples to Apples. I played it for the first time last night. Definitely a fun game to play with a large group. And a nice low tech diversion for the high tech crowd.
