What we're about

WHO LIKES STUFF? You? Cool. WHO LIKES GEEKY/NERDY/POP CULTURE STUFF? Still you? Cool. WHO LIKES MEETING OTHER PEOPLE WHO LIKE THAT STUFF? Now we're getting somewhere! Geeky Gatherings, Nerdy Networking is a Meetup created by Happy Fish Parties with the goal to create a world where you and your friends (old and new) are free to be unabashedly enthusiastic about what you enjoy. Happy Fish Parties will put on a different theme at a different location each month so you can meet new people and explore new places in Chicago at the same time! Whether you are a casual fan of superheroes, know all the words to every Disney song ever, or saw that one Game of Thrones episode that one time, you are welcome here. Geeky Gatherings, Nerdy Networking is a safe space that encourages geeking out, networking, creating friendships, and inspiring one another. Excelsior and Allons-y!

Game of Thrones Pop Up at Replay!


“Jiorna! Zentys iksā!” If you’ve been catching up on your High Valerian with Duolingo, you know that means, “Welcome! You are a guest!” Be just that at the Game of Thrones pop-up bar at Replay in Lincoln Park. Come drink and know things, take photos on the throne with your clan, play games that are not limited to killing off one another for the kingdom, and celebrate the series before it ends (in probably your favorite character’s death). Costumes are never necessary, but always encouraged.
