ABOUT GEEK PRIDE DAY:

Geek Pride Day (Spanish: Día del orgullo friki ) is an initiative to promote geek culture, celebrated annually on 25 May. The date was chosen as to commemorate the release of the first Star Wars film, A New Hope on 25 May 1977 (see Star Wars Day), but shares the same date as two other similar fan "holidays": Towel Day, for fans of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy trilogy by Douglas Adams, and the Glorious 25 May for fans of Terry Pratchett's Discworld.

    For such wild and chilly weather, and it being our first GPD, I was impressed by not only the turn-out, but how many people stuck around for hours throughout the day. It's so wonderful to see there are so very many warm, friendly Geeks around the area!!!

    Thank you to Dina and Blair and all the organizers who put so much thought and effort into this! It was AWESOME!

    The meet up was fun....very late fall/early winter weather :). I got there late.....my dog Serene, although not really knowledgeable about geek culture - but interested in learning, is available for any mascot positions that might become available :)

      Yeah whoever thought scheduling an event for MEMORIAL weekend would have resulted in November weather! Oh well!

  • Laura K.

    I bought a ticket at the last trivia but I can't find a trace of the email it was supposed to arrive in. Since the regular sales are closed I can't get in until I find it.

    Hey I'm a procrastinator and put off buying the ticket, though I still plan to attend. It appears I can't buy the tickets online any more, can I get them at Modern Myths?

    May 25, 2013

  • Paul C.

    Anyone else opening their spot?

    May 25, 2013

  • Terry

    ticket purchased... will bring a grain salad to share, and spend time at the grill.. do you need grill implements?

    May 21, 2013

    • Terry

      if its raining all day and only 50 degrees, then I probably wont attend.. so do I get a refund for the ticket or do you just use it for your supplies? Or is this a fee I can put towards something else? Sorry but gotta ask the questions.. as I do not know the answers.. thanks..

      May 24, 2013

    • Dina

      Unfortunately there are no refunds since we've already bought all the food and supplies expecting to host over 100 people.

  • Ron

    I can man the grill for a while. What are we thinking? Burgers? Hot dogs? Steak on a stake?

    May 7, 2013

    • Ron

      @Michael: did you mean hot dogs in a blanket or did you really mean sausages in a blanket?
