What we're about

Greetings! Welcome to the Active Lifestyle Nerds Meetup community. This meetup was designed to bring out your inner-nerd and introduce it to other inner-nerds around your area---with a slight twist. Let’s face it, the average person in a bar, club, or other common area where people socialize, often lacks the level of nerdism needed to have a good Firefly conversation or a discussion of “who shot first” (it was definitely Han Solo, folks).

This group is designed for the person that loves technology, Star Wars, comic books, Discovery Channel, the sciences, video games, or just about anything one would consider “geeky”, but not necessarily willing to share it with their friends.

This is especially true for you, ladies--often times the shiest and least willing to admit how into Naruto you really are. We want this to be a community where all “nerds” are accepted and given an opportunity to meet with other like-minded individuals.

Here’s the twist: Let’s break that “Nerd” stereotype and Assemble in non-nerdy locations throughout San Diego and beyond!

Ideally, anyone within the age range of 20-40 would benefit most from this group and overall experience but no one will be turned away!

Come have new adventures and meet new friends at ALN!

Stay active, stay nerdy.

Karaoke Night!

Tap That Draft Beer Services

Come get your sing on!!! Tap That is a hidden gem in North Oceanside and they feature a stellar selection of 20 rotating local craft taps alongside a 100+ bottle selection. They also serve wine and have a soda fridge for those who just wanna sing sans alcohol. They offer $1 off your tab if you sing. They have some light snacks on site and there will be a taco vendor across the street at Legacy Brewing! You're welcome to grab tacos there and bring them back over. It's free to come hang out and sing or just hang out and listen :) Note: it is a requirement that someone sing "Africa" by Toto. You've been warned.

Escape Room at Boss-Play - Prohibiton Ransom

Boss-Play Escape Rooms

The Gig: Ever wanted to act like a mob gangster but not a fan of the whole “crime” thing? Ever imagine what it would be like to be on the hunt for a large cash stash? Have a sweet pinstripe suit or flapper getup you’ve been wanting to get more mileage out of? Join us for the “Prohibition Ransom” Escape room! This is an intermediate room, but no prior escape room knowledge is required. Just a passion for puzzle solving and working as a team. The Costs: Price is $35 per person. I will handle the payment and reservation. The sooner the better, as it will allow us to guarantee our spot. I can take cash in person at another Meetup event, or you can Venmo/PayPal me. Venmo : @LuMarTo PayPal: [masked] The Nitty Gritty: Escape Rooms tend to be enclosed affairs. The room will be locked for the duration of the experience, but there will always be staff on hand to assist when necessary. Cancellations before 72 hours of the scheduled room can get refunded (minus processing fees) anything past that will be non-refundable.
