It’s Oscars weekend and there are viewing parties all over town. Metro Cinema has one and so does The Rec Room but guaranteed there’s a bunch more I haven’t mentioned. Check your favourite local hangout for more details.
The weekend’s biggest local event is TEDx UAlberta’s REBOOTED event. An amazing lineup of speakers from a variety of backgrounds and it’s this Saturday only! Check it out (if there are still tickets available).
Beyond that, there’s the latest podcast meetup at Variant Edition,the Alberta Youth Chess Championship, 17 hours of Board Gaming at The Gamer’s Lodge for KefCon, the latest Books2Buy sale at the Library, Bowling with the Browncoats and GTFO re-opens!
It’s a busy weekend already but if there’s anything I missed, send me an e-mail at info@EdmontonNerdList.com and I’l get the word out about it too!
