SPACE NERDS was born of the concept that nerds are nerds are nerds are nerds. For one whole week we can all drop the “cool-kid act” and revel in our common nerdiness, as bars all around the country (and world!) offer up their own out-of-this-world cocktails. We’ll roll out galactic–themed events, stunning garnish programs, and pun-laden cocktail lists; bring on the Obi Wan Negroni’s and Mai TIE-Fighters! Check back here and/or use the social media:
