An interesting blend of geekery this weekend. Get out and try something new!

Thursday, Feb 14th

SciFi Dinner: The Bionic Woman [East Mesa]
  • Spend your Valentine’s Day discussing the perfect woman.
  • (Well, from a cybernetically enhanced perspective anyway.)
  • Part of the whole superhero deal going on at ASU East this week.
  • Starts around 6pm at the ASU PolyTech Student Union.

Friday, Feb 15th

48 West [Chandler]
  • Involved in the tech industry (or want to be) and love food  & music?
  • 48 West is popping into existence this year to bring some of that SXSW flavor to the valley.
  • It’s going down in downtown Chandler on Friday & Saturday.

Saturday, Feb 16th

Arizona Renaissance Festival
  • I neglected to mention this last week, when it officially started – so, time to repent.
  • Spend your weekend with wenches and jesters and kings and wenches and mutton and lutes and wenches.
  • From 10am to 6pm way out east in their temporary kingdom.
  • I should really make it out to this this year. I’ve never been.
Big Ol’ Gigantic Book Sale [Phoenix]
Cult Classics: Big Trouble In Little China [Tempe]
  • I think we can all relate to the humble truck driver sucked into a paranormal world of ancient evil, right?
  • Stand with him in his quest for his rig as Cult Classics takes movie-watching to the next level.
  • At the Pollack Theater starting around 9:30pm.

(Also, not super nerdy per se, but how can I not mention that Trapped In A Closet sing-a-longs are starting at The Film Bar?)

Anything else? If so, drop a comment.
