    I left very early and my negative review has more to do with my preferences and expectations than the event itself. It started a half hour late. This wouldn't have bothered me much except for the fact that the atmosphere was that of a loud crowded bar not a gathering of people who are interested in learning something. I was expecting a lecture type atmosphere where if there was a half hour delay I wouldn't have to shout to talk to someone... I wont say more - this event is just not for me and I wont be going to another one.

      I agree it's very loud in there. While there are more quiet places to hear lectures, this is the only one I know of that attracts a younger crowd. I think that's honestly why it gets so loud !

      Sara - thanks for your response. Reading what I initially wrote it sounds really harsh to me. My experience would have been different I am sure if I had been able to find the group and gotten to connect with people in it (maybe I finally need to get a smartphone....). I am still enthusiastic about going to more geek night out events

    Sorry some people couldn't make it. I thought people would check out the website. Previously the events would not sell out very quickly but they have become more popular lately (and it was well advertised this month). Sorry for any inconvenience!

    If anybody has two tickets to give away or sell, Mark and I are standing right outside the door and would like to buy them.

  • Fran

    Some of us are standing near the stage.

  • Mary

    Anybody still in line? If not, where is the group situated at?

    February 9, 2013

  • Matt

    No more tickets. See you guys next time around.

  • Mohammad K.

    I need three tickets b/c they are sold out, anyone have the 3 to spare?

    February 9, 2013

    • Rebecca

      Ah! I need one as well

      February 9, 2013

    • Mohammad K.

      Ha, check above, looks like 1 extra, not 3 so we'll catch this next time!

      February 9, 2013

  • Selvi

    Does anyone still need tickets? I bought three and it looks like my friends are cancelling on me...

    February 8, 2013

    • Selvi

      As of right now I have essentially promised my.extra tickets to Stacey and Emmanuel. However, Emmanuel also needs a ticket for his friend... If he can't get another ticket, I MAY still have an extra.

      February 9, 2013

    • Selvi

      Yeah, Emmanuel can't make it. The first person to email me gets the extra ticket!

      February 9, 2013

  • Rebecca

    I'll see you all at the next meetup. My bad for not getting tickets early.

    February 9, 2013

  • Le Andre' W.

    I need a ticket. Sorry, I didn't know theu would sell out.

    February 9, 2013

  • Emmanuel

    How much are tickets

    February 9, 2013

    • Selvi

      $10, but really $12 if you get them online. I have an extra, feel free to email me via meetup with your contact info if you want it.

    Boo! Wanted to go, but something popped up. Is this a recurring thing?

    February 9, 2013

    • Sara

      Yes it is monthly

      February 9, 2013

    • Katie N.

      Awesome. Thanks Sara.

    This question is going to make it abundantly clear that I don't get out often enough, but I need to ask anyways...what's the deal with going to bars in the winter time? Like do they have coat check?

    February 9, 2013

    • Sara

      No coat check as far as I've seen

      February 9, 2013

    • Lauren

      So what do people do? Just carry their big coats around? You can tell I don't do the bar thing very often....

      February 9, 2013

  • Sara

    Wow! I'm excited to see so many science geeks sign up for the event. The event is held upstairs in the club. I will head out early to try to get a table for us when the doors open at 6:30 because it does get packed in there. If anyone would like to ride up with me, send me a message. I'm on the Red Line. :)

      I'll be coming from Arlington. Did you post your number somewhere so that we can find you when we get there?

      February 9, 2013

    • Sara

      Send me a message if you want to meet up for the commute!

    I'm sick today - alas!

  • Djuana T.

    Sorry, i have a skincare class to teach and makeovers to do tomorrow evening.

    Ohh looks fun...I'll try to come

    As a frequent nerd nite attendee (and one time Speaker!) I can tell you getting there EARLY is a good idea. They sell out to full capacity and that means having to sardine your way to the front if you want to really enjoy it.

    Out of town. =(

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
