Nerd Out: February 2022

It’s a new year, and we are starting to see a dip with the new variant. If you are still hesitant to go out, we get it, but if you need some out-of-the-house experiences we’ve taken that into consideration with our article showing off some safer options.

Before we go into the details of the events, we want to remind people that we are still within the thralls of a pandemic, and recommend people check out our article on ”If You Should Go Out” Here. In keeping with our promise within that article though, each event we are talking about will have an Is It Safe section discussing steps taken by the organization to keep the attendees safe. Please consider that though before making your ticket purchases.

Some of the cool things going on this month are:

  • Stranger Things Store
  • Klimt: The Immersive Experience
  • Dinos Alive Exhibit
  • Go Karting On Ice
  • Stranger Things Store Available at the Glendale Americana through February 15th, 2022.

    This store has Scoops Ahoy-themed clothes, items, throws, sweatshirts, make-up, and period-appropriate candy! On top of the products though, the space is full of interactive rooms that make amazing photo-ops. Included is Joyce’s House with interactive light display, Hawkins Middle’s Snowball Dance with peeks into the gang’s lockers, Palace Arcade with free play period appropriate games, Starcourt Mall where you pay for all your goods, and the Russian Lab where you can activate a portal to the Upside Down!

    Is It Safe?
    It’s a public event, but everyone is required to wear masks. They’ve metered entrance and used reservations to slow the number of people in the place at one time, but there is always a risk. We highly recommend that you only attend if you have been vaccinated. If you still want to pick up some awesome stuff though even if it’s too big a risk, you can still find some of the products Here at their online store.

    Tickets are free and can be reserved Here. You can even check out our prior article covering the location Here, or see our video of the location Here!
