Come See Our Haunted House for the ATX Startup Crawl

OCT. 5, 2017

Goosebumps, chills, and spine-tingles… Experience it all and more at Square Root’s vintage haunted mansion on Thursday, October 12th from 5 – 10 PM. We’re opening up our gothic home once again as a host stop for the ATX Startup Crawl by Capital Factory. Step out of the shadows and spin your web with our Radical team. To help you survive, we’ve come up with a few phrases you’ll need for a spooktacular night at Square Root:

STRANGE BREW

She + Him Bartending will be brewing up free cocktails all night long. Choose between The Raven, an eerie whiskey cocktail or the Graveyard Gruel full of cider and champagne. Looking for a chilling beer instead? We’ll also have local craft beer on tap!

I ONLY HAVE EYES FOR YOU

Our 50’s inspired playlist will provide a frightening serenade as you nosh on Arepas and B-bowls from Four Brothers Venezuelan Food. By the end of the night, you might just be lured to the dance floor.

SAY, SCARY!

Beware of the undead portrait and statue from Austin Oddities slinking around the grounds. Not superstitious? Take a snap with them at our black cat photo station by Jesse Knish Photography. The thing you won’t want to miss though is a performance by the dark contortionist twins.

HI, I’M <INSERT NAME HERE>

Visions of a career with us? Say “Hi” to anyone with a purple name badge. Or, creep by our recruiting room to tell us all about you! We’d love to add another Radical to the Square Root Family…da-da da-da (read to the tune of the “Adams Family).

PRO-TIP

We love our whimsy and themed events, but the Startup Crawl at heart is an opportunity to show off our space and people to the ATX community. Whether you’re networking, on the job hunt, or just want to have fun—we’re excited to meet you! If you want to learn more about our people-first approach to company culture, come by our Startup Week session before the crawl at 4:00 pm inside our office (Find more details here). You’ll get a front row seat to what we’re all about and have the opportunity to ask me, the Director of Culture + People, anything. After the session, we’ll take a tour and land right at our Startup Crawl Haunted Mansion. Food and drinks on us!

LOGISTICS

You can shuttle, rideshare, or park for free in our neighborhood! Either way you won’t want to abandon our haunting stop. For more, download the app for iOS or Android to see other host stops and the ATX Startup Crawl map.
