Nerdy Flirty

 

continued

self-proclaimed nerds looking to meet other nerds will fill these tables.

This is the third installment of Nerdy Flirty Speed Dating, the brainchild of Nerd Life Productions. Nerd Life comprises four friends: Josh Schramm, Daniel Loines, Will Blattman, and Marcus Schwimmer. Schramm says their only goal is to make enough money to continue doing events--they use the seven-dollar registration fee from the daters to rent the Vault's basement and pay for materials and refreshments.

"We just want to create ways for the nerd community to do things ... I don't want to stereotype anyone and say we are trying to get anyone out of their parents' basements," says Schramm with a laugh. "Nerd culture has become so normalized." Schramm, twenty-eight, says they started the event because they would have loved something like it when they were younger. They also host a podcast--"Two Nerds and a Wookie"--and put on the Lord of the Rings-themed "Trivia Night in the Shire," also at the Vault.

Liz Sullivan, the store's general manager, says the speed dating caters to the crowd that frequents the shop, giving them one more reason to visit the store.
