What's Nerd Nite?
From https://nerdnite.com/ We all know that learning is more fun when you’re drinking with friends and colleagues. Thus, Nerd Nite is a monthly event held in more than 90 cities across the globe during which several folks give 18-21-minute fun-yet-informative presentations across all disciplines – while the audience drinks along. And there are often bands, acrobats, trivia, and other shenanigans as well. Imagine learning about everything from math feuds or the science of the Simpsons, to the genealogy of Godzilla or zombie insects, while having a few or a few too many. Fun, right? Click on the cities on the right to find a Nerd Nite near you. And yes, we know this is an ugly website, but Nerd Nite isn’t really about aesthetics anyway.
