Nerd Nite Ann Arbor: Heads, Houses, and the History of Hip Hop

  • LIVE 102 South 1st Street Ann Arbor, MI, 48104 United States (map)

For the last 4 years, crowds have gathered each month in the early evening in bars and venues around Ann Arbor. Around 7 pm, it begins: three boisterous speakers geek out up front. What is this? Some secret club? Nope! It's Nerd Nite Ann Arbor! And it's open to anyone and everyone who loves to learn or share what they love.

For the uninitiated, Nerd Nite (NN) has been described as “...like the Discovery Channel™…with beer!” Sounds fun, right? It is! NN is held monthly in 70+ cities, giving several folks the opportunity to give 18-21 minute fun-yet-informative presentations across all disciplines. Imagine learning about everything from the science of the Simpsons to the genealogy of Godzilla. Fun stuff!

Nerd Nite A2 #55 Topics:

Brain Injuries & Recovery - Chrissy Zimmerman, physical therapist
Thinking about Architecture - Jessica Letaw, architecture geek
History of Rap - Austin McCoy, Historian, U-M

Doors open at 6:30, and speakers start at 7pm. So show up, have a drink, meet other nerds, and learn a bunch of awesome new junk! Mark your calendars and spread the word! Any and all nerds (and non-nerds!) who love learning and having a great time are welcome to join us!
