Nerd Out: November 2021

Christmas is butting it’s head into our November Nerd Out article, but in all fairness, there aren’t a lot of Thanksgiving-themed events to experience. So if you want to celebrate early, then that’s your choice, and no one here is judging.

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 Pop-Up Store
