'Nerd Nite' debuts in Detroit tonight

Mar 28, 2013

"Be there and be square!"

That's the battle cry for Detroit's first-ever 'Nerd Nite.'

It's happening tonight at Great Lakes Coffee on Woodward in the Medical Center area of Detroit.

Ann Arbor started its monthly Nerd Nites earlier this year. The event helps bring fun and entertainment with an added value of learning, but people may be wondering, what exactly  is a 'Nerd Nite'.

Organizers Liz LaMoste and Amber Conville join us today to tell us what happens during a Nerd Nite where the slogan is "Nerd Nite is like The Discovery Channel with beer."

As a reminder, Detroit's inaugural Nerd Nite is tonight at Great Lakes Coffee on Woodward in the Medical Center area just a bit north of Orchestra Hall. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.and everything kicks off at 7 p.m.
