  • From 6 to 8 tonight, Frankford Hall presents “Urban Nerd Night,” where one can “hang out with urban planners, journalists, industrial designers, coders for democracy, people who work for SEPTA, educators, a hacker or two, a favela painter, cdc heads, and a science teacher who’s high school students make and test rocket fuel under the Reading Viaduct.”

  1. Why was urban nerd night not announced earlier ? I couldn’t make it this time , it sounds like SOMTHING I’d love to go to. Will they be having more ? I HOPE SO !

    • This from organizer Alex Gilliam:
      Last night, based on popular feedback, Aaron and I decided to institutionalize it– 2nd Thursday, 6-8.30, Frankford Hall. Can you guys list it again next time?

      We may have a special mini-event on December 1st, with a visit to North Philly for a special tour by our friends with the Philly Painting Project, our market canopy, and a trip to a local bar.
