A showcase of this week's finest geek and geek related activities for the week. Mark your calendars.
|The Geeky Kink Event is this week|
(via Clarence Risher)
- Convention - Geeky Kink Event - Piscataway Township, NJ - November 4 - 6
- Looking for a way to meet up with geeks of a similar kinky persuasion? With everything from how-to demos to fandom meet-ups, the event looks like a great opportunity for people who are tired of hiding their nerdiness from their kink friends and vice versa.
- General - Margin Call at E Street Cinema - Washington, DC
- Star Trek and Heroes' Zachary Quinto is joined by an all-star cast in Margin Call. I would characterize Margin Call as a horror movie, but more accurately, it's a suspense drama about the start of the financial crisis in 2008. Rotten Tomatoes has the film listed at 86%.
- Comedy - Jim Breuer at DC Improv - 8:00 PM and 10:30 PM, Friday through Sunday
- One of Comedy Central's "100 Greatest Stand-ups of All Time," Jim Breuer will be at DC Improv doing two shows a night all weekend long. The link above has a clip of his stand-up if you want a preview before snagging tickets.
- Holiday - Halloween!
- Last time I'm going to mention the fun, scary events: Bennett's Curse, Nightmare Screamplex, Pirate Adventure, Markoff's Haunted Forest (which I have on good authority is so scary that it can induce vomiting), and Fright at the Museum.
- General - Urbanized special preview and post-film discussion at E Street Cinema - Washington, DC - 9:00 PM
- The 6:30 showing has already sold out. For those of you who won't be partying or handing out candy on Monday, director Gary Hustwit's movie about city design and urban planning looks awesome. Urbanized is the final part of Hustwit's design documentary trilogy, which includes Helvetica and Objectified.
- Music - Childish Gambino - Silver Spring, MD - 7:00 PM
- Can't get enough of Troy on Community? Check out Donald Glover's music when Childish Gambino performs at the Fillmore this week.
- Rescheduled! - Adam Corolla - Silver Spring, MD - 7:00 PM
- Heads up: This event has been rescheduled from Friday November 4 2011 to Saturday January 21 2012. Original tickets will be honored for the new date. Refunds are available. Check out the link above if you bought tickets to this.

- Holiday - Guy Fawkes Night
- Remember, remember the fifth of November.
- Comedy - Jeff Dunham - Fairfax, VA - 8:00 PM
- I love Jeff Dunham. Just thinking about him is going to get Peanut's "Jef-fah-fah Dun-HAM dot com!" stuck in my head for about a week. Hulu Plus has the Jeff Dunham show, and his stand up is even better. Unless you're afraid of puppets, I'd highly recommend the show.
- General - Nerdist Podcast: Live! - Washington, DC - 6:00PM
An exciting week! Get to it! Other weekly reoccurring events are listed on our website (such as Rocky, CCG tournaments, crazy themed happy hours). For more information, check out the calendars at DC Geeks.
