What’s better than nerd love? Geek out with us for Valentine’s Day! (Single? The Wookiee is happy to be your valentine this year!)
Hang with the bellydancing Wookiee, firespinning superheroes, and sword-wielding villains for a brand-new production of fire, nerdery, and wonder every other month – we’ll pay tribute to everything from the X-Men to Star Wars, Doctor Who to Silent Hill, Super Mario Bros to Sandman. It’s a veritable cornucopia of nerdy delights. (But not the kind you have to fight to the death for.)
So grab a Romulan Ale, help raise money for local non-profit orgs, and geek out – don’t miss one of the most unique experiences in the Alpha Quadrant!
February: We’re coordinating with the Global Hafla for Humanity to donate 10% of proceeds from the show to the International Rescue Mission. E-mail Raks Geek for more information.

February 8, 2020
Location: Latifa’s School of Middle Eastern Dance (This is a private event in Latifa’s home)
This event will be a Dance Salon (by definition, an event intended to please and educate) Since we’re dancers, a dance-oriented salon could include attendees showing off their works in progress, either just to get some practice performing in front of a small audience, or to seek feedback from those attending. We could share things we’ve learned, work on costumes (especially if you need help fitting), listen to new songs, etc. There will be a donation bucket for Hafla for Humanity.
This is a private, in-home event for Latifa’s students and colleagues. If you know Latifa and would like to be invited, send her an e-mail.
Date, venue and details are still to be announced for this event. Contact Mary Embree for details.
