Nerdy Thursdays is a signature event that originated in New York City’s historic Seaport District in spring 2017 as a book club and after-work mixer. This series has evolved into a celebrated space for creative entrepreneurial nerds with established elements including a reading room, revolving DJs, curated panels, vibrant hosts, signature cocktails, and soulful bites. These events offer a variety of themes, such as Small Business Night, Cinema Night, Black Chef Night, and Hip Hop x Fashion Night. Join us for our next Nerdy Thursdays.

Nerdy Thursdays returns and kicks off the Black Gotham Experience Summer Season 2019. This week we look at how Black hair has been a form of cultural identity, creative expression, and a contested political space. It’s our first ever Black Hair Night. Join the conversation.
