But before that, let's come together tomorrow evening Tuesday 31st of October for a drink at Casa Independente at Largo do Intendente Pina Manique 45.

Don't drink too much tho, as the 24 hour hackday starts early on 1 November at 9 AM for a coffee in Cowork Lisboa.

2. The 24 Hour Blockchain Hackathon - 1 November - Cowork Lisboa (Silver Room) @ LX Factory. 

How to get there? 

Grab a bike, taxi, tram to LX Factory at R. Rodrigues de Faria 103. Once you arrive you should walk through mainstreet with the cobblestones along the big main building on your right. Once you see on your left the restaurant Burger Factory, you can enter the building ON THE RIGHT either with the (very old) elevator or the staircase. Go to the fourth floor where you see Cowork Lisboa, then get back to the end where the Silver Room and Coffee is waiting for you.
