I play a Geek in The Phoenix

Friend of Greater City Providence Jack Templin and his cohort Brian Jepson are the Providence Geeks. In last week’s Phoenix (still lingering on newsstands until this Thursday), Ian Donnis wrote a nice piece on the Geeks, geek-culture, and the technology industry in Providence. And I jumped into the photo taken last week at Foo Fest (I’m the shiny one).

The Geeks meet monthly at AS220 where you can grab a beer and a taco and join in on the Geek talk and meet others. Not being terribly geek-y myself (not that there’s anything wrong with it), I find the Geek Dinners very interesting and enjoyable (the Dogfish Head beer helps maybe).

The Geeks have one of their famous dinners coming up this Wednesday at 5:30pm at AS220, 115 Empire Street in Providence. I encourage you to check it out!
