New Idea

Posted 03 December 2007 - 09:09 AM

So I had this new idea, and wanted some feedback to see how people would react if given the opportunity. I have found that there are many kinds of specialty bars around, but never a geek bar. If there was a bar like this in your area, would you go, and if so, what kinds of things would you like to see there?

Some of the things I had in mind were:
Creating approximations of drinks from various Sci-fi novels, ie the pan-galactic gargle blaster.

Old-school arcade machines

live nerd-core performances

and of course beer


any thoughts would be helpful

If anyone hasn't heard of nerdcore, check out http://www.nerdcorehiphop.org. Its an interesting music movement combining hiphop and well nerds. Songs talk about coding, unix, roleplaying, comic stores, gaming, and other nerdy things.


And I am totally serious, if I ever open a nerd bar, I will have nerdcore artists come perform there.

I'm nerdy/geeky or whatever you might call me but I'd have a more enjoyable experience with being stabbed in the hand with a fireplace poker than to listen to 'nerdcore'.

Damn hate-full sons-a-bitches!

I actually like M.C. Chris, never really listened to anything else in the genre.

Hate is not a good word, pain is more of a suitable feeling.

So is anyone going to get past their dislike of my musical choice and give me some feedback on the idea overall? And no matter what music I had mentioned, someone here would have had the same to say, but thats really irrelevant, I want opinions on the idea of a geek bar, not on what kind of music you don't like.

We're already pushing it with the kudo points, the current bars, and the post rankings. Let's not turn into those forums with so many points and bar titles for everything. I'm still wondering the difference between an Author and a Contributor title.

Uhm... I think he means like an Alcoholic beverage serving Bar.

Like the star-wars Cantina.

Also similar to that place where you show up in ass-less chaps on Friday nights, down by the docs.

Oh, I see.







Still not a good idea. Go to a real bar. I'm sure the super sloth can give you all the pointers.

Thats exactly what I had in mind. There are sports bars, gay bars, bars for rich people, bars for poor people, irish bars, but no geek bars. Unless someone already opened one somewhere that is nowhere near where I live

That's because geeks, as a group, are not social. So a non-social social-gathering place, such as a geek bar, has yet to exist.



I mean, think about it. I know if I had a lot of friends when I was in school, I would not have read as much, nor learned as much about computers, became a programmer, played nearly as many video games, ect ect ect.
