The Nerd Machine is taking over the Gaslamp District and transforming Jolt’N Joe’s restaurant into the center of the Nerdiverse.
In partnership with Break.com, Xbox, and Gunnar Optiks, the Nerd HQ is the destination for a unique and more intimate, personal experience.
The Nerd HQ is rallying the nerd army so they can share in all the gaming, technology, and entertainment we all love. And oh yea, there is no admission cost, everybody is welcome to enjoy. The Nerd HQ is an all ages event where you all nerds are welcome. However, at 8pm, local laws require us to raise the age limit to 21 and over. If you are interested in volunteering please click below!
Break Media, the online video sponsor, will be covering the event and posting reports from Nerd HQ and the SDCC. We are also creating 3 original videos in promotion of the event that will begin airing around July 4. Xbox, the official console of the HQ, will be providing interactive gaming areas for all HQ visitors to enjoy. Gears of War 3, Rayman and Gunstringer will all play prominently at the HQ. We will set the record for the most dancers in one game of the Kinect’s new “Dance Central 2”. Gunnar Optiks, the official eyewear of the HQ, will be providing demo glasses for gamers and techies alike.
The Second Annual NERD Party will be bigger and better than ever at the HQ. Great sounds from DJ NERD, Kinect dancing, drink specials, and more.
The Nerd HQ will be launching our first series of “Conversations for a Cause” featuring your favorite stars from the world of entertainment and technology. These discussions of less than 250 will provide a much more personal connection with the speakers. “Conversations” with will include stars from “Firefly”, “Battlestar Galactica”, “Stoopid Monkey”, and friends of Zac Levi. The “Conversations” will be followed by an autograph signing in the exhibition room. Check back soon for the schedule.
One hundred percent of your $20 dollar (or more) donation goes to providing life-changing surgeries for children through Operation Smile.
The Inaugural “Nerd Machine Shorties” will be available throughout the event and the Top Videos will be placed on Break.com so they can be rated. A viewing and awards ceremony will take place at Sunday’s Nerd Brunch. Toshiba tablets will be available to rate the videos on Break.com. Prizes include Xbox packages, GUNNAR Optiks, and more.
