What we're about

Sometimes being a geek girl is a lonely experience. It's hard connect with other women when they're staring at you funny because you're trying to explain your theory that the nature of a child's mutation stems partially from genetics as seen in Polaris and Magneto, but mostly from some sort of trauma before puberty - the time in which most mutants first exhibit abilities. Ex: Nightcrawler wanted to disappear because of his demonic appearance, and he did. You flashed 'em a little bit of your geek, and people just sidle away cautiously.

Not at this meetup. We LOVE your inner geek. We want you to pull it out of it's hiding place, doll it up and make it sing for our amusement. This is a place where you can meet girls who share your interest/s, socialize, have adventures and not feel ostracized.

Our main focus is to provide a safe social setting for geek girls of similar interests to meet and interact and hopefully create bonds of friendship that will last a long time. Our secondary focus is to have a blast! Geek girls of all ages, shapes, ethnicities and interests are welcome!

Please don't join if you are of the male persuasion – this is not a geek on geek dating service.

Also, Please have a clear photo of your face when you apply. Your application will be declined if you don't.

If you ever have an idea for a meetup, please feel free to post it in the Ideas section. If you have a location, time and date I'll post it right away. If there are still a few details that need to be smoothed out, I'll leave the meetup up in the air until it's worked out :)

I'm very open to people wanting to be assistant organizers or event coordinators. The difference is assistants help with many different meetups while coordinators will focus of their own. The more the merrier imo!

Virtual Cheese Tasting

Online event

Venissimo has a monthly first Friday cheese tasting plate, so we're making this a thing! It's only $15, and you'll have to order by Thursday morning and pick up your plate on Friday. And then not eat it until Saturday, which may just be the hardest part! We'll get together for a bit, eat cheese and chat, what could be nicer on a Saturday afternoon??!?!

From Venissimo: Willy Wonka may have the greatest chocolate factory, but this month's flight has both chocolate AND cheese, paired perfectly together, a match made in heaven. You may think only a creamy brie goes with chocolate, but what until you see what else does. We're mixing various chocolate intensities with various cheese styles for a delightful flight to kick off the weekend in the sweetest way.

Order here: https://www.venissimo.com/product/first-friday-of-the-month-cheese-flight-plate/3928?cp=true&sa=false&sbp=false&q=false&category_id=2 and we look forward to seeing you soon!

Geek-y Hour Chat Session

I had so much fun doing this last year! I hope you all can join me for an hour of hanging out, catching up, and nerding out! Make yourself a drink, if you're so inclined, or just log on to say hi. Looking forward to catching up!

This event repeats every other week, and RSVPs close at 4p on the day of the event. If no one has signed up by then, the event will be canceled.
