Event Details

CANCELED: Nerd Nite East Bay: Geeky Lectures in a Bar | Oakland

This event is on indefinite hiatus

Nerd Nite East Bay is a monthly lecture-in-a-bar series. They get smart and interesting people, give them lots of free drinks, and put them on stage in front of a couple hundred tipsy nerds.

Sometimes it’s funny, sometimes it’s salacious, and it’s always nerdy.

Nerd Nite East Bay
Every last Monday | Doors at 7 pm; Talks begin at 7:30 pm
The Uptown Nightclub, 1928 Telegraph in Oakland
$8 in advance; $10 at the door | 21+

Please note that Nerd Nite East Bay moved to their new location at The Uptown Nightclub. 

Last Update: 2/11/20 – Event Link

April’s Nerd Nite East Bay includes one of our funkier line-ups to date. First, Stuart Gripman will teach you about the fake fish concocted by the notable naturalist John James Audubon. Then, Kara Platoni will speak about some of the ways people are hacking their perception abilities. Finally, the Exploratorium’s Lori Lambertson will give a light-hearted look at some of the grim repercussions of global warming.
As usual, doors/bar/food are at 7. Grilled Cheese Guy will be slinging delicious sammies. Ann-Marie Benz and Will Johnson wil run the Nerd Nite Detention pre-show: Lego Love – show your nerdiness by creating fake fish, cyborgs, or anything else you can think of at our Legos table. All the toys, none of the children. We’ll also have Books Inc., who will have copies of Kara’s book for sale.

Oh. And fan (and boss) favorite Matthew “Herbie” Harman returns as a guest MC.

Herbie, Rick, DJ Ion the Prize, and the Oakland Public Library will (still) be the April Fools.

Be there and be square.

This event is 21+.
