Nerd Nite #16
Tickets to Nerd Nite are usually long gone by the time it makes it to our weekend guide. It's basically three interesting talks by experts (from watch collectors and body builders to NASA medical researchers and renowned physicists) plus beer. As they say, learning is more fun while drinking.

Tickets: $15 available here.
