This weekend, Arizona sticks its tongue to a pole, turns teenagers into nerds, and sells local creations.

If you’re tired, hungry, cold, bored, anxious, surrounded by zombies, or stuck in a space-time-loop, I may be able to help you with the fourth one.

Here’s this week’s list of geek events around town:
