What we're about

Help Support ALN's Mission - Contribute Now! (http://paypal.com/activelifestylenerds)

Greetings! Welcome to the Active Lifestyle Nerds community, the friendliest Meetup Group in San Diego. 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.

https://www.eventbrite.com/e/active-lifestyle-nerds-halloween-extravaganza-tickets-71155647457?aff=meetup Welcome to the 6th annual ALN Halloween Extravaganza! This is always our biggest event of the year (we had ~350 people attend last time), and we're going all out yet again! In previous years, ALN's Halloween Party has supported local charities while also gathering nerds in fellowship and fun. Since gaining nonprofit status in 2018, we’d now like to direct our support to the nerds who haven’t yet found their tribe. This year we will be fundraising for the ALN nonprofit organization, which is dedicated to ending adult loneliness through building a welcoming nerdy community. This year's theme is Luigi's Haunted Mansion! As always, the event is a costume party, so everyone should come dressed up, either in the Luigi's Haunted Mansion theme or any other costume that suits you. There will be a costume contest with many categories to win from with the top prize being a Nintendo Switch for Best Costume. Location: Encore Event Center Grand Ballroom Activities: - A live DJ the entire night - A station to play various Nintendo games -Board games! - A costume contest with many prizes - A raffle to win many nerdy prizes, including a new NES classic and a new Starcraft 2 Collector's Edition box set (more TBD). - photo booth area Food and drinks: - Full bar including beer, wine, and cocktails. - Food Stand TBD Tickets: Entry ticket-$15 Early bird, $20 Regular/At the door: Includes entry to the event.

Game and Puzzle Night—Wavelength Brewing

Location visible to members

Come hang out during our “monthly” game/puzzle nights @ Wavelength Brewing Company. We hold one official ALN event there, but every Monday at 6 there’s usually SOMEone ready to play if scheduling becomes an issue. Wavelength has a selection of games on site along with organizer's games, but, of course, bring any games you have that you want to play or introduce to others :) You can go as simple as “Go Fish” or as advanced as Dungeons and Dragons. We'll have multiple games or puzzles going so feel free to come and go as you can! Wavelength does not have food, but you're welcome to bring in or order in. When Pigs Fly BBQ is next door, Urbn Pizza down the street delivers to the brewery, and there are a number of other eateries within a few blocks, including The Yellow Deli, Vista Village Pub, and Belching Beaver. There is a parking lot across the street and free street parking all around.
