Nerd Nite is like a mini TED conference, but with more swearing and more beer.
Nerd Nite East Bay #10The New Parkway Theater (474 24th Street, Oakland, CA) Map it $8
Nerd Nite, which by now is a national phenomenon, derives much of its monthly sold-out success from an unlikely combination of beer and intellect. Bringing together three bona fide nerds each month to give Powerpoint presentations on topics that run the gamut from epigenetics to the science behind Rock-Paper-Scissors, Nerd Nite is like a mini TED conference, but with more swearing and more beer. Tonight, Nerd Nite East Bay's 10th event promises to regale you with newfound knowledge about sports fandom, weird structures, and cannabis chemistry. Three cheers to the revenge of the nerds!
