Next Meetup

Friday Movie Nights: Gotcha! (1985) + Future Man
We are doing a six degrees of separation thing the next few weeks to determine our movies. Since Anthony Edwards appears in both Top Gun and Gotcha!, our Friday Movie this week will be Gotcha! We are changing things up just a little tiny bit. Fridays are still going to be movie nights, however, we've decided to expand outside the Science Fiction realm and watch some other great movies. If you have a movie that you would like to watch with the group, send me (Samantha) a private message and your organizers will take the suggestion under consideration. Gotcha! Synopsis: Hapless with the ladies, college freshman Jonathan Moore (Anthony Edwards) convinces his parents to pay for a European vacation, hoping he can lose his virginity overseas. In Paris, he meets 24-year-old Sasha Banicek, a sexy Czech woman who invites him to accompany her to West Berlin. Sasha, desperate to get a roll of film to the CIA, gives Jonathan the package without telling him what's inside. Unaware of what he's carrying, Jonathan must elude the Soviet forces trailing him. We will also continue where we left off with Future Man (episode 11). (Please note that Future Man will start at 6:50pm, so arrive early if you don't want to miss it). The evening will start out with people arriving at the caffe and ordering dinner (if they're hungry). At approx 6:50pm we will start Future Man, followed directly by the movie at approx 7:20pm. After the movie, people tend to hang out for a while, chatting, playing games, sometimes there is even karaoke, and for any of the crafty type people, you will fit right in with some members who do all of the above while they knit, crochet or cross-stitch. There is no cost to join the event itself, but we do ask that you show respect to La Fontana Caffe, a place of business, where we get to hold our events for free, if your finances will allow you, please make a purchase of at least $5 to help support the caffe, so that we can continue to use the space free of charge. Also, we ask you not to bring in any outside food or drink.

What we're about

Public Group

Would you classify yourself as a geek or a nerd? Do you like science fiction and fantasy, movies and TV, comic books and board games, cosplay, and any of the other wonderfulness that the "muggles" might classify as weird? Are you looking to make new friends or re-connect with some old ones who share these similar interests?

Do like watching movies and TV with like minded people. How about crafting projects, knitting or crochet or needlepoint? Would you like to have a Family style dinners where the conversation topics includes Zombies, Aliens and Superheroes? Do you ever find yourself spontaneously breaking out in song?

Nerd HQ is supportive of all geekdom out there! Join in and become “one of us” as we venture forth and immerse ourselves in the vast field of nerdery. Many of our members have found some really true and great friends by coming out to events. Nerd HQ knows it can be hard to meet new people so we are pretty low key and friendly. You can engage with people as much or as little as you would like, just sit down with the group and either listen in to conversation or join in. It's up to you how much you would like to participate as you get to know other members and make friends.

Any suggestions for events or activities are welcomed and appreciated. See you at Headquarters!
