It's sometimes hard to find your place on the barhopping circuit when you are a geek, a freak, or a nerd. But that doesn't mean we don't enjoy a beer over a lengthy discussion on the use of bezoars in literature or why you ship Buffy/Spike over Buffy/Angel. Thankfully Clubhouse Jäger plans to turn Tuesday nights into a nerd summit for the socially awkward, overly enthusiastic, and sexy-but-bookish out there. Hosted by l'etoile magazine's Kate Iverson and Beth Hammarlund, Sci-Fi Tuesdays will feature screenings of sci-fi movies plus two-for-ones throughout the night. This week's screening is MirrorMask, a coming-of-age tale about a girl sucked into a visually stunning, bizarre alternate universe. Yeah, it's a Dave McKean/Neil Gaiman collaboration. Following weeks will feature the director's cut of Bladerunner, and a double-header screening of Forbidden Planet and Angry Red Planet. Twelve-sided dice and strong opinions on gaming strategies optional. 21+.
