ANC: Happy Hour @ the Boardroom
Starting at 5pm on Thursday Nov. 17th, there will be 5 or 6 "presenters" who each have a story card. Each presenter will have a turn to read the headline on their story card, and then answer questions from the audience as the audience tries to determine if the presenter is telling a true story or not. This is a fun way to hear from people in the startup community doing cool stuff that doesn't get talked about enough!

Inspiration for this event came from Would I lie to you? or True Confessions.
