Nerdy Things To Do In Edmonton This Weekend (July 7th – 9th)

So what are you going to do this weekend after you’ve seen the new Spider-man movie? How about another movie at Metro Cinema? They’ve got a DEDfemme event tonight, Classic Russian Sci-Fi tomorrow and the 20th anniversary of the Fifth Element on Sunday.

Beyond that, there’s a huge new Magic: The Gathering Pre-Release taking place with midnight launches at multiple local stores so you’ll be able to game very late at your local store tonight & then again all weekend.

There’s also another garage sale at the Wee Book Inn, the re-scheduled Free RPG Day event at All Star (if you missed getting in on it a few weeks back) and a big Injustice 2 Video Game tournament at the Microsoft Store in West Edmonton Mall.

If I’ve missed anything, send me an e-mail at and I’ll update. Have a great weekend!
