Whats up Nerds? It's thursday, I've already finished reading my pulls from yesterday, there's no convention until Saturday...lets hang out tonight. But where?

The world is quickly being overrun by nerd culture... and it's awesome! There are pop culture items in nearly every store (did you know that LIDS has it's own Funko Pops? LIDS. The hat store. Hats.) and somewhere there's a comic convention almost every week of the year now, hell there's one happening at the end of this blog entry (Lou Ferrigno and Deep Roy will be there) . But what if we just want a casual daily hang. I dont want to wait for a Nerd night event at Dave and Busters (which...are awesome!), I just want to go to my local bar or restaurant, have a bite and drink and not have 50 screens of sports on the wall.

Where are the Nerdsteraunts? How hard is it to turn on cartoons and a Tim Burton movie? Put a picture of Thor and Spongebob on the wall? Arc reactor tea lights on the tables? Simple, common nerd decor. How about a bar where you shoot green arrows at a dart board? A make your own pizza place where the trays are all Caps shield.

And it doesn't have to stop at food.

How about a nerd gym? I know plenty of yolked nerds and can whoop yer ass in Call of Duty AND on the streets. Why do we have to listen to shitty top 40 rap/hip hop and watch basketball on the treadmill. You know that Weird Al's White and Nerdy is 143bpm? I can run to that. Put images of fit cosplayers on the walls for inspiration, because I can tell you for a fact...I'm never doing Yoga or Rock Climbing.

Here's what I'm saying...start a go fund me or a petition on change.org....I'm just kidding, those never do anything...but start spreading the word. We want Nerd hang outs.

also I'm trademarking the idea for arc reactor tea lights.
