Nerd Nite 25

It would seem that nerds no longer need to seek revenge, as they've established a long-running event all their own, a decidedly squaresville soiree. For Nerd Nite 25, the self-proclaimed geek squad will venture to Phoenix Art Museum, 1625 North Central Avenue, to drink and discuss the original Renaissance Man and proto-dork, Leonardo da Vinci. The 21-plus event gets down and nerdy with a series of 18- to 21-minute presentations from 7 to 10 p.m. It's free to attend, though seating is limited. To RSVP, visit

Wed., April 1, 7-10 p.m., 2015
