Not Food related.... but still fun...
Geekstravaganza is a charity geekfest the Austin Browncoats host
to raise money for a worthy cause while uniting Geeks, Nerds and
Browncoats alike. This year, we're supporting SafePlace, in
their goal to end sexual and domestic violence through safety,
healing, prevention and social change.
Each Geekstravaganza, we invite a new musical act to regale us
in song (as we do our best Carlton dance). This year, we're
honored to have Marian Call, a geek goddess, visiting our
section of the `verse. She'll perform two sets, while spinning
plates in both hands and jumping on one foot. Seriously. She's
that good! (Don't hold us to this, though. Marian might not have
told us, per se, that she can do this, per se, but, maybe?)
"But what else can we look forward to, huh?"
How about an All-Geek Talent Show, All-Nerd Costume Contest and
all Sci-Fi Trivia Bee. Winners get to bring home fabulous prizes
and proudly let their geek banners fly! Last year, our talent
show winner was Austin's own Ernie Cline, writer of geek
favorite, Fanboys. Think you have what it takes to win the big
prizes? Get your geeky talents ready, because we hope 2009 is at
least the 12th root of 2 times better than Geekstravaganza 2007.
"Is that it? Really?"
Nope, that's not it. There is more! We'll even have some
awesomely geeky (verging on a little too cool) demonstrations
and an Air Combat tournament judged by Austin's favorite ninjas,
Cry Havoc. What's Air Combat? Wouldn't you like to know! Real
geeks know Air Combat, but if you're just borderline geek, keep
your eyes on this website for an update on our Air Combat
