Nerd-O-Ween 2016 presented by Chicago Nerd Social Club

October 22, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm

| $15

CNSC is proud to announce Nerd-O-Ween 2016! Saturday, October 22nd, 2016, 7 – 11pm. Thanks to your feedback about what you’ve loved and what you haven’t, we’re continuing to evolve Nerd-O-Ween as an excellent and inexpensive event that brings the local nerd community together.

The CNSC community has overwhelmingly supported Nerd-O-Ween’s move to a private venue and switch to a more DIY-style event. This year, we’re keeping what worked and improving on what didn’t. To comply with our host’s requirements and our own, access to Nerd-O-Ween will be open only to paying members of CNSC–but don’t fear; the price of a year-long CNSC membership, including access to Nerd-O-Ween, is only $15.

What this means is that by purchasing a $15 annual membership to CNSC, you (1 person) will automatically be added to the guest list for Nerd-O-Ween. In addition, you’ll get the benefits of membership, including early access and discounts to events year-round. And as CNSC is a volunteer-run organization, you’ll be helping us keep the lights on.

Nerd-O-Ween is 21+ and admission includes one entry for our fabulous prize drawing. As always, Nerd-O-Ween will feature a costume contest, with prizes for Most Original, Best Mashup, and a new category: Crowd Favorite. CNSC will provide some snacks and nonalcoholic beverages, but in the spirit of nerd community (and for an extra entry into our drawing), feel free to BYO favorite treats or adult beverages to share! Want to play some geeky trivia or Johann Sebastian Joust? We’ll have those, too.

Costumes aren’t required—just your awesome nerdy selves—but we do love it when people attend in costume, and the majority of attendees do so. Get creative, get nerdy, and get ready for new friends to get your references!

Sign up for CNSC membership now! Location and other details will be shared with attendees once they purchase their CNSC membership. The venue has gender-neutral, single-stall restrooms, and the entrance is accessible.

Interested in volunteering to help with Nerd-O-Ween? Email info[at]chicagonerds[dot]com and let us know!

This event, like all CNSC events, is governed by our Anti-Harassment and Event Policy, available at http://www.chicagonerds.com/about/cnsc-anti-harassment-policy/. This party is open only to guests age 21+. By purchasing membership and access to N-O-W, you agree that if you choose to drink alcohol, you’ll do so responsibly, and that any inappropriate behavior will get you booted from a really sweet party.
