Nerdy Edmonton Look Ahead Jan. 19-28

Taste of Animethon is this weekend and if you haven’t looked at the schedule for that; just checking it out & planning your visit will take an hour or so. That said, there’s plenty more happening this weekend. There’s a big 3 Day LAN gaming event (JanLAN), two Hearthstone events tonight, Mark Meer is guesting on Rapid Fire Theatre’s Red Shirt Diaries Show, a free showing of Wonder Woman at Metro Cinema and a Regency Costume Fair on Sunday. That’s all just this weekend!

In the next ten days, we’ve got out next RPG matchmaking night (come on out if you’re looking to get a gaming group started!), Anita Sarkeesian is coming to the Edmonton Public Library’s Forward Thinking Speaker Series, you can learn to start your own Podcast, a $10,000 Halo tournament qualifier, and the Telus World of Science has their big “Game On” Dark Matters night!

As usual, e-mail me at if I’ve missed anything and I’ll do my best to get the word out!
