Your Nerdy Week Ahead in Edmonton Dec. 29 to Jan. 7th

Looking for something to do this weekend and throughout next week? Well… New Year’s Eve is taking priority over most nerdy regular events (though Pawn & Pint and Connexxions Café are having nerdy New Year’s parties).

We’ve also got some Xmas carryover tonight & tomorrow in the form of Ugly Sweater party at The Gamers’ Lodge tonight and the Edmonton Twitch Community’s Holiday Live-stream party on Saturday at High Score.

Oh! Did I mention you can kick off the New Year by watching the Evil Dead trilogy at Metro Cinema on New Year’s Day? Sigh… it’s Groovy (you knew I was going to say that).

The rest of the week has a Scott Pilgrim vs. the World Screening at The Rec Room (with live music), Drawn To Write events at Happy Harbor Comics and Rapid Fire Theatre’s Red Shirt Diaries (featuring an actual cast member from TV’s Star Trek Discovery!).

If I’ve missed anything, send me an e-mail at and I’ll get the word out about your event too!
