Nerd Night East Bay, Club 21

D. Ross Cameron

A self-professed "infovore" and early presenter at Nerd Nite San Francisco's popular lectures-in-a-bar series, Rick Karnesky endeavored to bring a satellite event to Oakland in Nerd Night East Bay, hosted at Club 21. "My favorite part of the night is hearing someone say, 'I never thought I'd be interested in outer space property law, but that was great,'" said Karnesky, the night's co-boss. The East Bay has no shortage of experts in diverse topics. Nerd Nites feature local scientists, history buffs, and creators of all kinds. Past talks have covered everything from stink-bomb science (presented by local author Mary Roach) to drone-assisted volcano photography. Club 21's beer, cocktails, and fare from the GrilledCheezGuy keep the mood lighthearted and the presentations far from dry. Upcoming months take on ant science (June), and women in the Black Panthers (July). Be there and be square (if you're 21 or older) on the final Monday of the month where $8 in advance or $10 at the door gets you in at 8 p.m.

Club 21, 2111 Franklin St.
