Nerd Nite is like the backyard wrestling version of TED. Each month three intellectual obsessives, drinks in hand, lead the audience through topics culled from the ivory towers of academia and the weird basements of geekdom. For more socially-inclined nerds, speed-dating, friend-matching and a curated pop-up library are also on offer. ASL interpreter usually provided.

See or for this month's details.

[ASL interpreter is provided]

We also do speed dating, friend making, and run a curated pop-up library.
