Union Hall will host an unprecedented speed dating night for nerds, because nerds need love, too!
An appropriate soundtrack of 1980s hits will play as participants meet and greet — and rotate after every third song.
After the initial meetings, each “nerd” will write down the name of a suitable co-nerd, and the pair will get a second chance at love. Those who don’t find their other half will get their own second chance at a group mixer.
Organizer Jin Moon (pictured) says that all are welcome, no pocket protector required. About 30-40 people have already signed up — though Moon says there’s been more interest from the distaff side of the nerd community. So geeky guys, here’s your chance to find your perfect bespectacled babe — in time for a New Year’s.
“The definition of a nerd is very broad these days, we’re not talking your ‘Revenge of the Nerds’-type poindexter,” she said.
“I Heart Nerds Speed Dating Night” at Union Hall [702 Union St. at Fifth Avenue in Park Slope, (718) 638-4400], Dec. 29 at 7:30 pm. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
