What we're about

If you just want to meet other people with nerdish tendencies that won't mind having the occasional discussion about the representation of people of color in speculative worlds created in movies, TV, novels, comics, video games, music, etc then you've found home.

We pride ourselves in being welcoming, open, respectful, diverse, and inclusive, so bring your viewpoints and let's nerd it out!

Monthly Fun Happy Nerd Time Wow!

Location visible to members

Greetings Nerdizens! Well, the Watch has come to an end and although Game of Thrones is done, our Happy Hours are still here. Come out and raise a glass to Arya Stark, because she’s still a BOSS! Poor libations for Missandei of Naath, the Mother of Dragons and the host of other characters that have captured our hearts over 8 seasons. Game of Thrones not your thing? No problem. There were a ton of things that happened last weekend that you can chat about with your fellow Nerdizens. Reggae Wine Fest and Escape Velocity being a couple of them. Hope to see you all soon. Let's do our beloved Host Emeritus Brenda proud and raise a glass for the Nerdizens.

Murder at Toadwarts: An Interactive Murder Mystery Event

Hyatt Regency Crystal City

Welcome to Toadwarts School of Magic! A historical school within the magical community where magical folk gather safely away from the snurbs to learn about and hone magical skills. Students and Professors alike, live in the school during the school year. Just last night, someone painted a red X on the Headmaster's door! This morning Professor Bennet, the Headmaster, woke up unable to remember anything. Not even his own name! An announcement was made that no-one may leave the school grounds before the end of the school day. Anyone caught doing so will be presumed guilty and detained for questioning. This is all well and good because today is the last day of finals and the tests are still happening! Each professor will give an exam and grade the students' performance, and a full scholarship will be awarded to the student with the highest grades! Get ready for a night of magic, mayhem and mystery on your last day of the school year at Toadwart's School of Magic! ABOUT What is an “Interactive Murder Mystery Party”? Basically, these parties are little more than evenings of “let’s pretend” games for adults. The game is designed to be mingle and conversation based. Upon arriving, you can select which house you will represent and can create your own character to play for the evening! You will also receive a game packet: a guest (suspect) list, and in game money and spells to use during game play! The ultimate goals are to enjoy an evening pretending to be someone else and to HAVE FUN! The centerpiece of our collective experience is dressing the part. So, YES, please do dress up! Theme: “HP house colors” in 1920s inspired garb. We want to see you rep your colors in your most dapper suits and dresses! Tickets: https://m3etoadwarts.eventbrite.com/ Ticket price includes: ~Entry to the Interactive Murder Mystery Party experience ~Burlesque performances ~ Prizes for the Winner, Best Costume, Best Character/Team Name... to name a few! ~ Raffle Tickets available for additional prizes and gifts (additional purchase necessary) Town Tavern Food & Drink Specials: $3 Domestic Beer $5 Rail Drinks $6 Burger Baskets Event Only Drink - TBD Tickets: m3etoadwarts.eventbrite.com
