In about a month, on February 16th, Tempe is throwing a big ol’ party for those of the nerdy persuasion.
After an action packed, but casualty-filled 2011, I’m trying to take events like this as a good omen for the outlook of Geek Arizona in 2012.
Everything will be circling around Madcap Theaters on Mill, for the festivities, from 6pm to 9pm.
Here’s a quick list of some of the things they’re hoping to include:
- Star Wars & Star Trek Trivia
- Astronomy and Telescopes
- Paranormal Investigation
- Inventor pitch-fest
- Tech Job Fair
- Aaaaaand more…
Why is Tempe doing this?
“[Nerds are] smart, fun and want to change the world for the better. They’ve cured diseases, built robots, and yes, even helped us get to Mars.”
I hope we can all turn out and show our support!
(Thanks for the tip, Stacey!)
