Miami Nerd Nite Will Blow Your Mind
Nerd Nite: A Place Where No Miamian Has Gone Before
When it comes to a good night, all you really need is good company; that’s how good conversations naturally spur in between the laughs and beers that are shared. One of my favorite nights here in Miami was a humid and hot winter night. I remember my friends and I staying up exchanging opinions, rants, and parodies over cigarettes and brews—we spoke about everything from Roddenberry to Dostoyevsky to love and sex. It was a fluid stream of collective consciousness amongst us. It was divine.
We love the nights we can write and dream about, or the nights that are incredibly invigorating in all senses of the word. And how about the nights when our eyeshadows glisten with the lights and the stars? Don’t we secretly love the nights that we feel at ease, taking off our heels and loosening our hair, but still having make up that’s infinitely on fleek? And most of all, the nights in which we seek good conversations? And frankly, my dear, we do give a damn! We crave them like we crave our soft-pink lip liner and light, floral dress (à la Lana Del Rey) on a summer evening.
This is all because conversations are a form of art—they are so peculiar and unique to each speaker. Along the years, I’ve managed to scout out some pretty kick-ass places where we can participate in such TED-like talks.
Lucky for us, every second Thursday of the month is “Nerd Nite” in Miami–located at Gramps bar in Wynwood. Yes, it is exactly what you wish it was: a place where us, bad-ass babes get our “geek on” and talk Sagan or Solomon. Essentially, “Nerd Nite” is an event in which different, accredited, and cool men and women propose informative conversations for a duration of 18-20 minutes each—while we holler back and cheer to our agreements or disagreements.
Let’s face it, we all need to take a break from our beloved selfies sometimes…orrrr rarely take a break. However, we definitely should be experiencing those “Before Sunrise” moments too, where time seems to fly as the conversations spill!
“Nerd Nite” is an event in over 80 cities nation-wide. All in which obtain that “Drunk History” feel, where learning about the history of “Strip-Tease” and kicking back a couple of drinks after a long week is still a bare necessity. So get a little drunk, put on your bell-bottoms and wedges! Grab a baby-T and hit Nerd Nite!
