Nerdy Things To Do This Weekend: May 5-May 7th

It’s a busy weekend again… First off, Marvel’s latest blockbuster released in theatres so check out Guardians of the Galaxy 2 when you can. Variant Edition is taking their Introverts Reading Night on the road tonight and YEGPin starts today!

If you didn’t make it to YEGPin last year, it’s an arcade/pinball dream with a hall full of games. I can’t wait to check it out.

Ok, Saturday is Free Comic Book Day and virtually every comic store in town is hosting an event for it. You’re guaranteed to find some kind of comic that you’ll enjoy and depending on where you go, there will be live music, lego, book signings & more.

There’s also Improvised D&D with Mark Meer, a gaming open house in Stony Plain & the Mayday Con miniatures tournament on Saturday.

One last thing I’d like to mention are the two charity events going on. There’s a superhero 5k tomorrow with people encouraged to participate in costume & there’s a charity bottle drive on Sunday where you can meet cosplayers dressed as your favourite superheroes. Please try and check out both if you can!

If I missed anything send me an e-mail at and I’ll add your event too!
