Nerd Nite is expanding in 2018.


 Nerd Nite Orlando is an evening of entertaining yet thought-provoking presentations, all while the audience drinks along in a casual atmosphere. Speakers present for 15-20 minutes each on a fascinating subject, often in an uncanny and unconventional way. Following each presentation is a brief Q&A with the audience. The premise is simple, drink and think. 

Nerd Nite operates in over a hundred cities around the world, including Tokyo, Seattle, London, Los Angeles, Des Moines, Austin, and many more. Nerd Nite launched in Orlando on Thursday, March 14, 2013 with founding organizers Valerie Cepero, Josh Manning, and Ricardo Williams.
Since its inception, Nerd Nite Orlando has taken place on every second Thursday of the month and is now organized and hosted by Ida Eskamani and Ricardo Williams.

The announcement of Ida's addition to the Nerd team was made on Thursday, September 14th at “Nerd Nite Orlando LV: Neural Networks, Autonomous Vehicles, and The Procrastination Paradox” where Eskamani took the stage at the end of the evening to emphasize big plans for 2018 including a Nerd Nite Prom and how they’re going to “triple everything in size and Nerd Nite this whole damn town!”

Ricardo Williams said, “I am incredibly excited for our plans for 2018, including the continuation of our monthly events, the second season of our show, our new documentary film, the 5-year anniversary, the cosplay prom, and so much more!”

Presentations at Nerd Nite XXXI included, "The Amazing Fabric of Gordon Space Time" by Scott Gordon, "Vulnerability: You ARE crazy and its GREAT" by Rodrigo Groppa, and “The Science of Jurassic World” by Trevor Valle

On January 11th from 7 PM - 9:30 PM, Nerd Nite will be held at The Geek Easy (114 S Semoran Blvd, Ste 6, Winter Park, Florida 32792.) The evenings them will be "Space." The suggested Donation is $5.00.  Doors open at 6pm. Program starts at 7pm.  Like the universe after the big bang, Nerd Nite is expanding in 2018.

Due to my impending divorce, I am no longer ALLOWED to sell my artwork. I therefore have no means of income. I apologize to any interested buyers. I will post when I am again allowed to earn a living.
