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!

March Comic Book Club

Online event

For March, we're reading Goddess Mode by Zoe Quinn: https://www.amazon.com/Goddess-Mode-Zoe-Quinn/dp/1401294111/ Here's the description: In a future not too far removed from our own, an all-powerful artificial intelligence called Azoth provides for all of humanity's needs. Using implanted nanotechnology, Azoth's omnipresent parent company Hermeticorp taps directly into the minds of the population, reading their every thought and satisfying their every desire--but not for free. No one knows Azoth's true cost better than Cassandra Price, whose low-level tech support job at the company her father founded provides a gutter-level view of the deepening inequality and social atomization that Hermeticorp has wrought. But even with her unique familial connection to the software that runs the world, there's nothing Cassandra can do to change it--until the day that she gets sucked into the real Azoth and discovers the Oracles, a band of magical women fighting for much higher stakes than high scores or premium content. In this virtual realm of mayhem and metadata, the Oracles' war against an unstoppable horde of digital daemons has real-life (and death) consequences. Can Cassandra survive long enough to reveal the true nature of Azoth? Or will she and her fellow Oracles get deplatformed--permanently? Hugo Award nominee Zoë Quinn and Spider-Gwen co-creator Robbi Rodriguez join forces to deliver the greatest cyberpunk saga of our age with Goddess Mode, collecting all six issues of the acclaimed DC Vertigo miniseries. CBC is co-ed and all ages, so feel free to bring anyone who may be interested in the subject matter. Our new way of recommending books is to add them to this goodreads shelf: https://www.goodreads.com/list/show/142714.Comic_Book_Club_Recommendations, or vote for any of the ones already listed. I won't factor "score" into the rankings, just number of votes. So, if there's something you want to read for the 2021 CBC, add it there. To see books we've read, look at this Amazon list: https://www.amazon.com/ideas/amzn1.account.AH7BMWV5TF7LIYTIVOISDXXK3Z4A/XD4DYUA0MI0F?type=explore&ref=idea_cp_vl_ov_d (I'll make another Goodreads page here soon).

March Book Club

The Wine Pub

For the month of March we will be reading "Once and Future" written by Cori McCarthy and Amy Rose Capetta. Description: King Arthur as you've never seen her! This bold, sizzling YA novel reimagines the Once and Future King as a teenage girl determined to save the universe from an evil curse. My name is Ari Helix. I have a magic sword, a cranky wizard, and a revolution to start. I've been chased my whole life. As a fugitive refugee in the territory controlled by the tyrannical Mercer corporation, I've always had to hide who I am. Until I found Excalibur. Now I'm done hiding. When Ari crash-lands on Old Earth and pulls a magic sword from its ancient resting place, she is revealed to be the newest reincarnation of King Arthur. Then she meets Merlin, who has aged backward over the centuries into a teenager, and together they must break the curse that keeps Arthur coming back. Their quest? Defeat the cruel, oppressive government and bring peace and equality to all humankind. No pressure.
