This week: live music recorded live and drunk nerds with (fake) swords, lightsabers, shuriken and sonic screwdrivers


Here’s a sampling of what you have to look forward to this week on the PDD Calendar.

One Week Live at Beaner’s, a celebration of live music being recorded, runs today through Saturday.

Mayor Don Ness invites you to meet with him one on one during Mayor’s Night at City Hall on Tuesday.

There are two events for the chattering classes this week. Nerd Nite returns to the Underground on Wednesday with presentations about martial arts, Santa Claus, and computer games. Chester Chats, modeled on TED Talks, opens at Glensheen Mansion on Thursday with presentations on public service.

Moliere’s hilarious farce, The Miser, gets the Wise Fool treatment and opens in the Harbor City Theater on Friday and runs two weekends.

The annual Pirate Ninja Jedi Trekkie Browncoat Whovian Reddwarvian Pub Crawl (otherwise known as “Pub Crawl for Indecisive Nerds”) starts at R. T. Quinlan’s on Saturday. The organizers urge you, as always, please, do not bring a real sword.

Ottertoberfest is Sunday at the Great Lakes Aquarium with accordion music and root beer! Because apparently that’s how you celebrate Ottertoberfest.

So what are you doing this week? Can we tag along? Any upcoming events that you want to promote? Let us know.
