This weekend, Arizona gets wet with superheros, dirty with pirates, old school with games, and goes troll hunting.

Arizona’s geek scene brings it again this weekend, with quite a few things happening Thursday night. I’ll be getting out myself, so let me know what you might be up to so we can connect!

Troll Hunter! [Mesa]

Pirate Mud Wrestling [Mesa]
