Geek out with GeekGirlCon

Do you live in or around Seattle? Are you interested in getting to know other geeks in the area?

Then you should join GeekGirlCon’s first informal meetup of the year!

In addition to hosting special events such as movie nights, art auctions, and burlesque shows, we want more opportunities to get to know all of you better and build a community of GeekGirlCon fans.

What do you love? What sort of geeky things get you excited each day?

Come discuss them at one of our meetups, which we plan to host every other week. We’ll explore areas outside of Seattle, chatting with geeks in Tacoma, Everett, and perhaps as far as Spokane. We might focus on certain topics each time, and we’ll mix up times and locations — a bar one night, a coffee shop another, and an outdoor picnic on a pretty day.

We’ll host our first meetup on Wednesday, May 30, from 6 to 8 p.m.

But we need your help to get there. Tell us where our first meeting should be. We’ll stick to the Greater Seattle area for the first one, but what neighborhood or city?

Leave a comment below telling GeekGirlCon why we should come to your neck of the woods. The area with the most comments gets the first GeekGirlCon meetup hosted in their neighborhood. And feel free to suggest great pubs, coffee shops, or other meetup locations.

 ** UPDATE: Capitol Hill is the winner. We’ll be meeting at Ada’s Technical Books. Check out our Facebook event page for all the details. **

I’m counting down the days, and can’t wait to get to know more about all of you!

    I vote for downtown Bellevue because it has TONS of parking (and other biases). Cupcake Royale is a good location (they took over an IHop), and Cafe Cesura is pretty cool.

    I’m including a vote for Capitol Hill, which someone sent to me on Twitter.

    Georgetown! If you meet up in our building (the big, cool Bottling Plant building across from Calamity Jane’s) parking is ample and free. We may even be able to get growlers from Georgetown Brewery – nobody can resist!

    We (Krab Jab, Green Ronin, & Georgetown Atelier) would be happy to host you. Plus Fantagraphics is right down the street, Larry Reid is a fan of y’all.

  4. Wayward Coffeehouse in Roosevelt! Already home to many geeky events. Friendly staff, great coffee, food and drinks named after Firefly characters ….

    Naked City Brewery in Greenwood has a large “back room” and often hosts geeky events (see the Think and Drink events). Good food, good beer, good people.

    We Glasgow girls are big geeks. If there is ever a Scottish meet up, it should be in Glasgow! And it should be at Solid Rock Cafe in Hope Street!

  7. Toni says:

    I am voting for somewhere in Captial Hill or the downtown area since I am a car-less geek girl.

  8. Sophia says:

    Hmm… Maybe somewhere in the Univeristy District? We could meet anywhere there and it would be a great way to reach out to the geeks of the university 🙂

    That’s great, I never thought about Nostradamus in the OR
