This GEEKend: Chi Nerd Comedy Fest, Sailor Moon Day, I Fight Dragons, and more!

The hottest C2E2 2015 after parties to attend this GEEKend

If it wasn’t already obvious, I will be at C2E2 all weekend. I wasn’t excited about the Chicago Comics and Entertainment Expo until this afternoon. It’s… actually an incredible (and short) story.

This Week in Geek: Geek Bar, Steamstock, and Nerd's Night Out

Geek Girl Chicago, Geek Bar Chicago, Nerds at Heart, Chicago Nerd Social Club… things aimed at this subculture often put “Geek” or “Nerd” right in the title, don’t they?  Guilty as charged.  I still haven’t decided if this tendency is inclusive or exclusive, though.  On one hand, there isn’t a “Trendy Jock Sports Bar.”  On...
