The Oriental Theater

Rotating dates every month


At Nerd Nites around the world, nerds and nerd-enablers gather each month to listen to 20 minute presentations from well-versed experts, both formal and non. These nerds love to learn, they love to drink and they’ve been doing both in the Mile High City since May 2014. Topics so far have tackled everything from the ethics of killing zombies, to the science of sexual attraction, to the evolution of video game controllers. No topic is too esoteric or nerdy. Nerd Nite is all the learning you love with none of the decorum traditional education.
