Geekenders: The Final Frontier
6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
1006 Granville Street
These are the voyages of the nerd group Geekenders. Their 809.3 year mission: to explore strange new venues, to seek out new friends and new fandoms, to boldly go where no geek has gone before. Join us on a space odyssey as we set out to examine the Earth cultures of ‘nerdlesque’, ‘ukulele humour’, ‘getting crunk’ and ‘dropping it like it’s hot’.
There will be elite members of Starfleet on hand to facilitate your transition to this strange new land. Whether you’re a Kaylee or a Starbuck, whether you’re from Kashyyk or the Planet of the Apes (spoiler: actually Earth all along), we invite you to join us for a space-themed party that will be sung of across the universe for parsecs to come.
Geekenders trivia, hosted by the League of Manchildren, is going to be all space (spaaaaace!); start studying now!
As always, we’ll be hosting two costume contests – one for best space-based cosplay, and one for ZOMBIES!!! Need ideas? You could come as Captain Malcolm Reynolds. The Space Core! Pigs in Space! Anything spacey.
