What we're about

This group is for ladies in their 30s (plus or minus a few years is ok, ~27-43) looking for authentic friendships with some really cool yet nerdy women. Some of us may be new to town, or maybe we're just realizing we need some more awesome, genuine friendships in our lives. You might be more inclined to enjoy some wine and a good book rather than go out. You might enjoy deep conversation over tea more than a night at a dance club. If this sounds like you, you might have hit the jackpot!

We try new restaurants, play games, watch movies, check out the arts and entertainment, explore the Denver area, and much more. Our events seldom have more than 12 people present, because small groups make for better conversations and connections. If you have ideas or would like to host an event, please email an organizer! Let's make this fun and keep it interesting.

Events take place throughout the Denver metro area, including the surrounding towns of Wheat Ridge, Lakewood, Englewood, Greenwood Village, Littleton, Centennial, Highlands Ranch, Lone Tree, Cherry Creek and all parts of central Denver.

Your Hobbies/Interests may include: NPR, knitting, crocheting, quilting, tea and coffee, thoughtful, engaging conversations, learning, cooking, gardening, books, post-graduate studies, exploring nature...

You may describe yourself as: introverted, funny, cerebral, unique, intelligent, fun-loving, genuine...

You might like: movies, food, teahouses, art, book clubs, crafting, game or trivia nights, other cool/nerdy ladies...

Nerdy 30s Ladies of Denver is part of a large network of sister cities around the world! You can learn all about Nerdy 30s Ladies, see what other chapters are out there, buy merchandise, and see what trips are upcoming and more, all at www.nerdy30sladies.com (http://www.nerdy30sladies.com/).

The only real "rule" is that you be accountable. Show up to events you RSVP for, or give your host a (timely) heads-up that your plans have changed. "No-shows" (i.e. not showing up at an event you've RSVP'd "YES" to) create extra work for our hosts, limit others from potentially participating in events, and are a disappointment to those who have spent their time and energy planning these events. To summarize: no-shows are a bummer and will not be tolerated (i.e. more than 2 "no-shows" could result in removal from the group). So, please be courteous, keep your RSVP's updated, and everyone is happy!

Book vs. Movie Club

Enchanted Grounds

Becci and I are starting a book versus movie book club. We are going to be meeting up to discuss the redeeming value in both and discussing positive and negative thoughts about each media platform. We will be reading and watching Dark Places by Gillian Flynn. If people can’t watch the movie that’s ok but we want them to try. We will also discuss the future books and meetups at the first meeting.

Untitled Final Friday at the DAM

Denver Art Museum

Untitled Final Fridays is the DAM’s monthly late-night program featuring unconventional experiences developed in collaboration with local creatives and community members. In February join Black Actors Guild to explore dynamic narratives from Denver’s Five Points neighborhood through music, poetry, and performance. I can get the first 6 people to arrive in for free, for the latecomers admission is $10 (for Colorado residents, unless you have a membership). Meet in the Hamilton building lobby (near the bottom of the staircase) - check the comments for updates on what turf we were able to stake out!

Nerdier Book Club Meeting - Assassin's Apprentice

Farm House at Breckenridge Brewery

This month we are going more high fantasy with Assassin's Apprentice by Robin Hobb. Here is a summary from GoodReads: n a faraway land where members of the royal family are named for the virtues they embody, one young boy will become a walking enigma. Born on the wrong side of the sheets, Fitz, son of Chivalry Farseer, is a royal bastard, cast out into the world, friendless and lonely. Only his magical link with animals - the old art known as the Wit - gives him solace and companionship. But the Wit, if used too often, is a perilous magic, and one abhorred by the nobility. So when Fitz is finally adopted into the royal household, he must give up his old ways and embrace a new life of weaponry, scribing, courtly manners; and how to kill a man secretly, as he trains to become a royal assassin. A location will be chosen closer to the date.
