     Most Super entities have an alter ego, and La Fontana Caffe  is no different.  On the corner of Hastings and Boundary. Sits an apparently nondescript Restaurant. During a normal  workday, La Fontana is a lazy Italian Restaurant (or not so lazy when something like the World Cup is on), but it has some quirks -- like multiple shelves of board games, a framed Dalek blueprint, a Spanish Bat Woman poster and an almost life-sized new Cylon on  the walls (not to mention the bathroom camouflaged as a TARDiS). When night falls, however, La Fontana morphs into the headquarters for Nerd HQ, and owner John  Gianfranco Latrofa lets down his geek hair. At La Fontana, pretty much every evening and weekend day has a different geek event, and Sunday night is "Dinner and Death", where John serves up  a unique gourmet dinner, and then the chairs are re-arranged to watch a couple of horror shows (Walking Dead, obviously, when it's in season). (originally from an application to host Talking dead)

     Awesome group of people, who where willing to put up with the fact that I'm not as funny as I think I am. Can't wait until the next event, and hoping there will be some kareoke.

     Nerd HQ is amazing! Although i have not been to many other meet up groups to compare, they were good for what they offer, i never found them to be as friendly and social as this group. The group is run by amazing, friendly, welcoming people, who work hard to make Nerd HQ great and the regulars are just the same. Nerd HQ meets up very regularly which is awesome and offers many different events to meet ones nerdy needs lol Try it! Especially for those trying to connect with new people and need a bit more fun in their life.

     I can tell by their sarcastic undertones, rude comments and sheer lack of common decency, that we're going to be best friends in no time
