We all know that learning is more fun when you’re drinking with friends and colleagues. Thus, Nerd Nite is a monthly event held in more than 100 cities across the globe during which several folks give 18-21-minute fun-yet-informative presentations across all disciplines – while the audience drinks along. And there are often bands, acrobats, trivia, and other shenanigans as well. Imagine learning about everything from math feuds or the science of the Simpsons, to the genealogy of Godzilla or zombie insects, while having a few or a few too many. Fun, right?
Kinky animal sex. The pirates and assholes who saved America. How to be creative. Welcome to Nerd Nite NYC March 2018 edition! And trivia is back too, so bring some pals, form a team, and win tickets to BookCon 2018.

Tales of Death and Darkness
