Nerd Nite: Cyborgs, Cancer and Saved by the Bell
Smoke Ring BBQ, 309 Nelson St. SW (Castleberry Hill)
Time to dust off your pocket protector: it's time for another Nerd Night. This go-round, the crew will be addressing three topics that may or may not have been plaguing your subconscious: who would win in an arm wrestling competition – Robocop or the T1000? And what exactly are the addictive qualities of caffeine pills? (We're looking at you, Jessie Spano.)
