This is a group dedicated to bringing geeky, nerdy, and super awesome people together to rejoice in our passions! I don't want to scare away non Whedon fans (if there is such a thing...), but my favorite fandoms are all from him so that's where I went with the tags. But I wouldn't limit events to that one area, we can diversify! There are a ton of amazing nerdy Meetup groups, but I was hoping to make some events closer to home in Columbia, rather than Baltimore or DC. Really, all of Howard County is accessible and nice. Some events I would hope to plan (and host) would be marathon nights of favorite TV shows, happy hours, casual gaming parties, etc. I am part of another group that has amazing events (like a weekly trivia night) that would be fun to combine with as well.
