Geek Week [SIV33] 

6/22/07, Geek Week: During the week of June 21-28, it is hip to be square at the Langdon St Cafe in VT's state capitol, Montpelier.

The organizers of Geek Week, Dave Porcello and Ben Matchstick would have gotten along swimmingly when they were kids - geeky kids. Although they only met recently, their childhood interests in comics, Dungeons & Dragons, arcade games, computers and solitude unite them in the Geeky Brethren.

During Geek Week you can expect to find 80s trivia, 80s cover bands like Sputnik, antique arcade games, board games, comics, drawing, cereal eating and geeky bonding.

Ben and Dave hope to unite the geeks and pull them away from their solitary computer monitors. And judging by the large crowd Friday night, their plan is working. Nowadays, it is hip to be square, for real.

Location: Langdon St Cafe, Montpelier Vermont
