Despite their usual awkwardness and wallflower reputation, geeks and nerds are occasionally known to party just as hard as your average frat cat. Check out the after-hours scene at a comic-con for proof of such, or head to this Chandler roadhouse on Friday, August 22, for its "Nerds Rule" bash. DJ Hazardous and the rest of the Party Time Crew will dropping EDM and other high-energy music all night while nerds and nerdettes will partake in such specials as $3 domestics, $4 Fireball shots, $5 Mind Erasers, and $6 Redbull vodkas. Things get going at 10 p.m. No cover.
Speaking of scantily clad geek girls, the ladies of Birthday Suit Burlesque will be dressing in nerdy and dirty costumes before stripping down during their "Back to the Books" showcase on Friday, August 22. Last Exit's almost supper club-like vibe will host the troupe's "sinfully sassy, titillatingly tawdry, and utterly uncivilized cabaret" that promises ecdysiast thrills and more than a little skin being show. Oh, and there also will some "tasty treats" offered (other than the dancers themselves), as well as prizes and a performance by The Haymarket Squares. The show starts at 8 p.m. Admission is $8 online, $10 at the door.
