Philly Nerd Nite is Looking for a New Home
The recent closure of Mar Bar in University City has left its monthly Nerd Nite gathering scouting for a new home. While Nerd Nite takes its hiatus over the summer, it will be spending its time finding the perfect new location for the fall.
For those not familiar with Nerd Nite, it's a monthly lecture and entertainment series covering topics as unusual as they are interesting. Nerd Nite began holding its monthly events at Field House, but the battle between sports downstairs and interesting convo upstairs became too much to bear. Its second, more fitting home, Mar Bar is now shuttered, leaving the nerds homeless.
Now that they have some time to search, Nerd Nite organizers have a few specifications they would like to have met, in their new fall home.
1. A space for a group of 100 or so.
2. Alcoholic beverages for sale.
3. Proximity to public transportation.
4. A/V equipment (projector and microphones).
If you know of / own / run the perfect new space, send suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Nerd Nite Philly is also looking for a new co-boss. For more info on that, or to suggest speakers or presenters check out the Nerd Nite Philly website.
