Nerd Out: January 2022

It’s a new year, and a new variant. I know a lot of people are hesitant to go out and about right now, so we’ve taken that into consideration with our article. Some people though need to get out, and it’s important to be safe with that in mind.

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:
