Greetings! Welcome to the Active Lifestyle Nerds community, the friendliest Meetup group in San Diego. This meetup was designed to bring out your inner-nerd and introduce it to other inner-nerds around your area---with a slight twist. Let’s face it, the average person in a bar, club, or other common area where people socialize, often lacks the level of nerdism needed to have a good Fire Fly conversation or a discussion of “who shot first” (it was definitely Han Solo, folks).

This group is designed for the person that loves technology, Star Wars, comic books, Discovery Channel, the sciences, video games, or just about anything one would consider “geeky”, but not necessarily willing to share it with their friends.

This is especially true for you, ladies--often times the shiest and least willing to admit how into Naruto you really are. We want this to be a community where all “nerds” are accepted and given an opportunity to meet with other like-minded individuals.

Here’s the twist: Let’s break that “Nerd” stereotype and Assemble in non-nerdy locations throughout San Diego and beyond!

Ideally, anyone within the age range of 20-40 would benefit most from this group and overall experience but no one will be turned away!

Come have new adventures and meet new friends at ALN!

Stay active, stay nerdy.
