Welcome to Geekocracy - the best Meetup group for fun events with your fellow geeks and gamers! The goal of this group is to coordinate fun and inclusive social events - like happy hours, game nights, movie premiers, etc. - to get out from behind our TV screens and make new friends. Geek culture is taking over the world and we're going to be in the middle of it! If anyone has recommendations or would like to help with organizing events, reach out to me or one of our event organizers. Any other issues, reach out to me directly.
Important: If you have been inactive for longer than 2-months (determined by 'last viewed' date), you will be removed in order to keep membership numbers accurate (you're welcome to rejoin - just stay active!)
Joker Poker! Let's play a friendly game of no-limit Texas Holdem at The Lowry Parcade aka Gotham Casino! I'll be the dealer and we can have up to 8 players max. We'll play for fun, so no cash buy-in or anything - but the winner of our tournament will get a prize! Whether you've played poker or not, you're welcome to play - we'll teach you if you need help learning the game.
Let's learn to swing dance! If you've ever been hesitant to learn to dance before (like me!), then let's take this opportunity to learn with our fellow geeks! This is a six-week course aimed toward absolute beginners and it's only $70 total - plus, no partner needed! The classes are every Thursday night starting at 7:00pm and we can walk down the street to Chili's after for drinks and food. Come on out!

Please arrive promptly at 7:00 - or even 15 mins early. The instructors will not wait for late arrivals.
If you'd like to find a dance partner in the group, feel free to post in the comments - but during the class, the instructor will have men and women rotate partners so everyone will have an opportunity to dance with everyone.
Lets go to the Parcade and have an evening of fun at the Parcade. There will arcade games, pinball, beer, DDR and good company as well. So come on out to the geekiest bar in Tampa and hangout with the best bunch of geeks around.
Note try to arrive before 8 pm or carpool/Uber as parking can be a problem after 8 pm.
