Every month, we gather some smart speakers and a curious crowd, add a bar, and create something unique.
This month, we’re going to have a filmmaker and a cutting-edge brain scientist speak in depth, with plenty of time for Q&A, socializing, and catching your train home!
Drinks (both alcoholic and non) and light snacks will be available. Eat, drink and be square-y! Kids are also welcome at Nerd Nite.
You can also find our event information on Facebook and Meetup; check the sidebar for all of our social media and mailing lists.

COVID-19 safety policy
To help protect the health of all attendees and the general public, we ask you to please wear a mask that fully covers your nose and mouth at all times, unless you are drinking or eating.
In particular, please make sure that you use your mask any time that you are speaking, unless you are currently on stage.
We recommend the use of surgical masks made from ‘non-woven’ material, as well as masks that meet the N95, KN95, or DS2 standards. If you do not have a mask, we can provide one to you at the door.
We also strongly encourage you to have received at least three doses of a government-approved COVID-19 vaccine, but we will not require proof of vaccination.
If you refuse to wear a mask, or refuse to wear a mask in an effective manner, you will be asked to leave the event. If you have a legitimate medical condition which prevents you from wearing a mask, please let us know.
