What we're about

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.

We have a Discord chat room, also - speak to any event organizer when you come out to your first event to join us!

Speakeasy @Ciro's

Ciro's Tampa

We've been waiting to check out Tampa's new Speakeasy trend at Ciro's. For those that don't know what a speakeasy is, its name is referred to drinking places during the prohibition-era in the US which were held in secret. The only way you would get in was to have a password. We now have modern versions of this speakeasy. Unfortunately, the seats that we have reserved is limited. We currently have 3 separate reservations for our group. A total of 13 seats. See you geeks there ! Here is their menu if you want to check it out http://www.cirostampa.com/

Board Game night at Grand Arena

Grand Arena of Mind Expansion

Let's play board games at Grand Arena. They have a wide assortment of board games and video games available. We can even put a movie on in the theater room that seats 10. There is a fee of $16 per visit and a yearly membership fee of $4 for your first visit. So for those doing the math, the first visit is $20. Once inside everything is included. This includes snack food and non-alcoholic drinks like soda and coffee. No alcohol allowed. You can bring your own food and non-alcoholic drink if you'd like. The session time is from 5 pm - 11 pm so you can come and go anytime between then. http://www.grandarena.net

Weekie wachee kayaking! -weather permitting

Weeki Wachee Springs

*UPDATE* All boats are booked. None are available. If you haven’t booked yours already you’re outta luck. Good news is you can still go to the Mermaid side on your own. Arrive at 10:30 bc this place is serious about late comers https://weekiwachee.com/reserve/ Let’s kayak the pristine waters of Weeki Wachee springs, 1hr drive from Tampa. The kayak rentals by the state park have doubles kayaks, single kayaks and standup paddleboards. The double kayaks are $60, the singles and SUP’s are $40 and they are for a 4 hour rental. The paddle down is 5 ½ miles and it usually takes about 2 ½ to 3 hours to finish. Once you reach the end the shuttle service will pick you up and bring you back up to the top. Here’s more info online. https://weekiwachee.com/kayak-rentals/ UPDATE: spoke to a park ranger about doing both the park and kayaking the same day. He said it would be difficult to do both in one day. Sorry to say my husband and I pick the kayaking over the Mermaid park. So for those interested in only the kayaking we’ll meetup at 10:30 at the launch area, behind the Mermaid park. Be sure to RSVP your 11am launch ahead of time because they do sell out. If you cant find the launch area, the employees at can point your there. If you want to see the Mermaid park you are still welcome to go. Either way you’ll have fun! Please post what you’ll be choosing so maybe we can have two groups!
