June 15th, 2023, 6:30 pm at Propeller Brewery (2015 Gottingen St) – be there and be square!
Allegedly it’s now spring, but it still feels pretty wintry, I’d say. At least we have Easter to look forward to! Which for some reason has something to do with the fact that it’s 2023, and I’m dying to know why. I might also be dying just sitting here, if sitting truly is the new smoking. And I don’t know how to segue into underwater pictures, but my desktop wallpaper is a photo of a whale, so I’m keen to learn how that happened, too. Join us on Monday, April 3rd at Propeller Brewery, Gottingen St. Halifax, to find out the answers to these questions and more!
Nerd Nite in Halifax is resurrected after the major covid period!
