Happy Geek Pride Day, NYC! It’s time to unleash our inner nerd, so to help you out we’ve found some geeky(ish) activities that will keep even the non-geek entertained.
What better way to celebrate Geek Pride than with some Indiana Jones themed fun. The Discovery of King Tut exhibition introduces over 1,000 displays including thrones, gold figurines, coffins, and bows dating back to the time of the enigmatic child king. Grab your whip and fedora and party like it’s 1323 BC.
Whether it be from Ghostbusters, Wayne’s World, or a million other movies inspired by this flagship show, the Saturday Night Live Exhibition is an unmissable event for you or your geeky partner. The exhibition takes you to the set and behind the scenes of 40 years of Saturday Night Live. Did you ever wonder what a day in the life was like for the cast and crew? Writing? Rehearsals? Live from New York…
Are you a comic-book fan? Then why not tap into that artistic genius behind the panels and improve your drawing skills… with a drink of course. At Muse Paint Bar an experienced artist will guide you through a workshop covering the basics of painting and drawing. Students of all levels are welcome and every session is unique. Bottle of wine, paintbrush
Look up to the night sky and what do you see? Perhaps a galaxy far far away? The Amateur Astronomers Association regularly host stargazing events on the High Line. You can gaze at the stars, planets, and moon through the high-powered telescopes then and chat with the experts about the sights you see. If you’re a budding Sci-Fi Fan that can’t make it into space then this plan may be the next best thing.
We get it, so you don’t feel particularly creative, or you’re not in the mood to try something new. Why not settle on a tried and true geek activity that never fails to satisfy, the movies… summer movie season is coming up with everything from comic book to video game movies on the lineup. Spend your Geek Pride Day at the movies… x-men anyone?
