8 Awesome Nerdy Things To Do This Weekend In Phoenix [WE 10/28]

Peelander Z

This weekend, Phoenix hits 88 MPH, meets The Oatmeal, walks with nerds & zombies, and rocks out with Japanese superheroes.

There are so many Halloween things going on that it’s hard to narrow it all down to the utterly geeky.

But, because I love you all so, so much, I did my best:

Thursday, Oct 25th

Back To The Future! [Tempe]
  • It’s a chance to see one of my favorite movies of all time on the big screen!
  • You’ve got to start thinking 4th dimensionally, people!
  • 7pm at Harkins Valley Art – totally free, but limited tickets.
Rifftrax Live: Birdemic! [All Over]
  • I have yet to regret attending a Rifftrax Live event; they never disappoint.
  • The MST3K gang is ripping into Birdemic, which if you haven’t seen is… just… awful.
  • 8pm at most theaters – get tickets and locations here.
  • I’ll be at the AMC showing on Stapley – let me know if you’ll be around.

Landscape, Art & Other Worlds [Tempe]
  • Feel like getting a little cerebral amidst the crazy weekend?
  • Science Fiction author Kim Stanley Robinson joins other brainiacs to talk art and the future.
  • “A freewheeling discussion about the intersections between fiction, art and landscapes on this and other planets.”
  • Free and goes from 1:30pm to 2:30pm at ASU.
The Oatmeal! [Tempe]

Nerd Walk 2012! [Tempe]
  • Join your fellow comrades and give the ASU Homecoming Parade some nerdy flavor.
  • Last year’s was a blast and I met some really great people.
  • Goes from 8am to 10am at ASU.
  • Register real quick online, then meet at this location early for donuts and Nerd Shirt distribution.
Downtown Phoenix Zombie Walk [Phoenix]
  • There are zombie walks and then there’s the Downtown Phoenix Zombie Walk.
  • (It’s big.)
  • Hit up Historic Heritage Square and get zombified for the fun.
  • The AZ Ghostbusters will be there in full gear, with the Ecto AZ. Awesome.
Nightmare On Mainstreet [Mesa]
  • If I had an obnoxious high-pitched radio DJ voice, I’d use it to say:
  • Biggest Halloween par-tay ever in the hoooouse!
  • But I don’t, so you’ll just have to imagine it.
  • Starts at 6pm at Monsterland and goes and goes.

Feel free to leave a comment mentioning everything Halloween-ish that I left out.

Have fun, everyone!
