An encyclopedic event that merges presentations, trivia and a little bit (or a lot) of alcohol, Nerd Nite is the kind of education we’ve been waiting for. Originally a science-based speaking event, the global phenomenon has run its course in Tokyo for three years now, serving up drinks, laughs and — of course — knowledge to curious crowds. Drone videos, dinosaur hunters and high-resolution goop are on this month’s menu, along with drinks and food from Tiny Peace Kitchen. Children are also welcome.
