Nerd-O-Ween 2017 presented by Chicago Nerd Social Club

October 21 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm

| $15

CNSC is proud to announce Nerd-O-Ween 2017! Saturday, October 21st from 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.

Click here to buy your CNSC membership and get your invite to Nerd-O-Ween 2017.

The last two years of DIY-style Nerd-O-Ween have worked so well, and we want to continue that trend. We heard your feedback loud and clear from last year, so we’re planning on having more activities and even more fun. 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.

**You can only buy two (2) memberships each, and due to capacity limits at our venue only the first 125 memberships will get access to Nerd-O-Ween. This is first-come, first-served, so when they’re gone they’re gone!

Once you have purchased your membership, you’ll be able to download an invitation to Nerd-O-Ween, complete with the location and directions on how to get there.

Please note: if you purchased a membership in Sept/Oct 2016, it will expire before Nerd-O-Ween 2017 and you will not be included in the guest list unless you purchase membership through this page.

****The Details of Nerd-O-Ween 2017****

  • Food & Drinks: Nerd-O-Ween is 21+ and BYOB. Some snacks and refreshments will be provided, but we encourage you to bring some, too. If you bring enough to share, you get an extra entry into our drawing for prizes!
  • Costumes: not required, but encouraged! We will have a contest for Most Original, Best Mashup, and Audience Favorite.
  • Drawing: You are automatically entered into the drawing by attending, but you can get an additional entry if you bring food or drink to share! Activities: Want to play some geeky trivia or Johann Sebastian Joust? We’ll have those, too–and more!
  • Time & Place: Saturday, October 21st from 7-11 pm. Location and secret password will be shared only with attendees after they buy their CNSC membership.

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.

CNSC memberships are non-refundable and non-transferrable. You can transfer your Nerd-O-Ween invitation to someone else, but refunds will not be offered under any circumstances. If you need to transfer your Nerd-O-Ween invitation, please contact us at info[at]chicagonerds[dot]com.
