Nerd Nite SF

From SPUR:

SPUR is proud to present at Nerd Nite San Francisco! Nerd Nite is a monthly event where three speakers take to the stage at the Rickshaw Stop to expound on a wide range of nerdy topics, while the audience drinks, laughs, mingles and hopefully learns something new. This month, SPUR’s own Public Realm and Urban Design Program Manager Ben Grant will discuss the history of density in cities and related fascinating wonkery. Be there and be square! The SPUR Young Urbanists are generously supported by the Koret Foundation.

Doors open at 7:30 pm. Event begins at 8:00 pm.
