Silicon Prairie News

It’s time for a party: Silicon Prairie News is two!

Omaha July 21, 2010 by Jeff Slobotski

Two cakes were served at last year's ice cream social as Silicon Prairie News celebrated its first year and BrightMix its second.

Silicon Prairie News is turning two and we want to celebrate!

For those that remember, last year we teamed up with BrightMix, who was celebrating their second birthday, and held our inaugural summer ice cream social at our shared office at 5018 Leavenworth Street. It was a wonderful time for all who attended!

Now that we've made it through our first couple of years, we'll be celebrating once again. Join us for the Silicon Prairie News & BrightMix Second Annual Ice Cream Social on Friday, August 6. Festivities kick off around 4:30 p.m. and end promptly at 2 a.m. (to reflect our city's updated closing times).

We look forward to seeing you there and please spread the word to your family and friends. Kids are welcome to attend as we'll have Silicon Prairie News family members and Analog the Prairie Dog there too.
