Nerdery Holiday Party

Attended the Nerdery Chicago holiday party tonight, at Headquarters in River North. It was a pretty dark space, so I didn’t get a ton of photos. But we had the whole lower level all to ourselves, which made it a nice oasis from what sounded like quite a busy night upstairs.

Awards ceremony for the first ever Chicago Nerdie Awards. A lot of silliness, and a lot of laughter from everyone all around. The awards themselves were really quite awesome – repurposed Nintendo cartridges. There was a bit of a “retro” theme for the evening.

While there were some games around, it wasn’t a super great selection. A few standards (I appreciated seeing Dig-Dug, as it made me think of Stranger Things, Season 2).

Super excited though, to see that a Robotron game was available. I was a bit rusty at first, but got a little better.

The event didn’t start until 9PM, and while I thought we might duck out early… Liz and I ended up staying until after midnight. Which was quite the feat for us, as we don’t tend to stay out late much.
