Nerd Nite is an informal gathering at which nerds get together for nerdery of all sorts (well, mostly presentations and drinking). Nerds and non-nerds alike gather to meet, drink and learn something new.
I haven't checked out Nerd Nite yet, but I love most events at the Galapagos Art Space in DUMBO.
Here are the awesome topics to be covered.
What your Spiritual Guru Never Told you about Quantum Mechanics
Where the Heck are the Aliens? : The Scientific Investigation of Alien Life
Doing it Buggy Style: The Fascinating and Brutal Sex Lives of Insects
You can read the full description on their website (http://nyc.nerdnite.com/).
Either buy your ticket ahead of time online here (http://www.smarttix.com/show.aspx?EID=&showCode=NER57), or just get it at the door.
