w00tstock v2.2

w00tstock v2.2 is coming to Chicago on Sunday, June 6th!!! It will be at the Park West in Chicago, IL. The time of the show is 7:30pm, but the doors open at 6:30pm. I suggest we meet at a nearby bar at 5:00pm, get a drink and/or some food and then walk over together at about 6pm. Ticket prices are $25 plus fees. Go to Ticketmaster.com and search for w00tstock at the Park West, Chicago, IL location.

*** Tickets go on sale on March 19th. Get your tickets quick! You are responsible for your own ticket. ***

The bar to meet at is:
Gamekeepers Tavern and Grill
1971 North Lincoln Avenue, Chicago, IL 60614-5403

Again, let's meet at 5pm at the bar above to socialize, eat, drink and be merry before heading over to the Park West at 6pm.

For decades, geeks were ostracized, picked on, laughed at and punished by the sun’s harmful UV rays. But there is only so long that a people can be kept down before they rise up against their oppressors; and, indeed, the dawn of the 21st century has seen the ascendancy of geeks and geek culture.

We now celebrate that rise to power–and let’s face it, nerds pretty much run everything now–with w00tstock, a special event for geeks of every stripe. Television host/special-effects artist Adam Savage (“MythBusters”), actor/author/blogger Wil Wheaton (“Star Trek: The Next Generation”, “Stand By Me”) and music-comedy duo Paul and Storm (hey; that’s us!) present a night of songs, readings, comedy, demonstrations, short films, special guests, and other clever widgets born from and dedicated to the enthusiasms, obsessions, trials and joys of geek pride.

This is the dawning of the Age of Geekdom–and its voices will ring true at w00tstock.

    W00tstock went beyond my expectations. It had something for all. I don't think there was a time I wasn't laughing.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
