You may have seen my semi-serious rant a few days ago about suffering through Valentine’s Day as a self proclaimed geek. You may have also noticed I mentioned that there was hope out there for us (yeah, I’m looking at you) in regards to dating. But what I didn’t mention is that the Reckon Crew will be spending Valentine’s Day in the geekiest fashion possible… hanging out in a comic book store.
You may want to take a moment to absorb that, I’ll allow it. Yes, the Reckon Crew will be hanging out in Dallas, TX at one of the largest comic book shops in Texas, Lone Star Comics. Once you wrap your mind around the sheer dork-itude of that statement, I’ll point out we won’t be the only ones.
No, Lone Star Comics, sweetongeeks.com, and Bawls will be hosting the Geek Prom on Saturday, February 14th from 9:00 pm till midnight. For a mere five dollars per person, guests can be surrounded by comics while engaging in potential romance, enjoy free food and drink and listen to live music from The Dirty Birds and Pixie.
And not only do you have a shot at romance with someone at least as geeky as yourself but all of the proceeds from the event will be donated to the Hero Initiative, a not-for-profit organization that provides a financial safety net for comic creators. So you not only get to flirt with some geeks while browsing comics, eating, drinking, enjoying music, you’re also contributing to a worthy charity. Sounds like a win-win situation in my book.
You’re already tempted, I can tell. If all of that isn’t enough, you get to see the Reckon Crew there in all our glory. Okay, so we’ll also be handing out some swag but we’re all devilishly good looking. Tell us how hot we are and we might just buy you a free beer. That’s how much we <3 you.
