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!
