So those who have been listening for a while know that I am involved locally with a group of nerdly-enthusiasts and that our organization is called the Portland Geek Council for Commerce and Culture. It’s a great group of people and organizations and we have a lot to look forward to in the amazing geek-friendly city called Portland. We’re throwing a party this Friday (aka tomorrow) and, if you can make it, you should totally be there! If you are on facebook, you can see the FB Event here. Here’s the press release:

Geeky Wonderland Holiday Party
Get your holiday geek on!

Portland – The newly-formed Portland Geek Council of Commerce and Culture (PGC3) is throwing a holiday party on December 10th. This free event is open to the public, with special performances, activities, and door prizes brought by many of the PGC3 Organizations.

This holiday party will be a perfect place for the public to meet the people involved, find out more about upcoming events, and generally feel at peace with their inner geek.

Several of of the member organizations will be putting together short performances onstage (including burlesque performer Geeky Von Tease and the indomitable PDXYAR!), with plenty of time between them for you to enjoy some classic video gaming (thanks to member organization Ground Kontrol), enjoy a digital gallery of local comic and geeky art (curated by Sequential Art Gallery), or just chat with any number of pirates, trekkies, browncoats, or ninjas. Door prizes will also be awarded, donated by the likes of Things From Another World, Billy Galaxy, Backspace, Atomic Arts, Excalibur Comics, and Ground Kontrol. There will also be a special surprise headline act.

PGC3’s Geeky Wonderland Holiday Party starts at 9pm and goes until 2am. Geeky Wonderland will be held at the Someday Lounge (21+) in beautiful Old Town Portland. There is no cover charge.

The Portland Geek Council of Commerce and Culture (PGC3) was formed earlier this year by a group of geek-friendly businesses and organizations with the goal of making Portland an even more geek-friendly city.
