Our club began as a Facebook Group created by, Aaron McGahee. What was meant to be a small safe-space for nerds to share memes and argue about which comic book character would beat another quickly grew into a community of people who wanted more. The creator saw this need and developed a team. This band of Nerds then started hosting events for others to join. The events were incredible; they were filled with laughter and Nerds from all walks of life drinking, eating, laughing, and playing together. The creator of the group and his team using this inspiration to forge partnerships with many more local business that Nerds would enjoy. Thus, the A Nerd Like Me (ANLM) Club was founded with the unique purpose of uniting Nerds and providing them with awesome events, great rewards, and a club to call home.
We also have a podcast lead by, Cory Howell. There, we give voice to the ANLM community by talking about the “latest n’ greatest” in Nerd Culture. If you’re into anime, cosplay, comics, sci-fi, card games, video games, or fantasy you’re already “A Nerd Like Me!” We have made smart partnerships with businesses that provide an incredible experience for all types of nerds. We typically host an event every weekend (Saturday). This is great chance to unwind from a long week, make new friends, and enjoy your free time. We also hangout every Monday to play Magic: The Gathering. The most impressive thing about the ANLM Club is its free membership. That’s right! It cost Nerds nothing to come out and enjoy themselves an most of our events. We do offer T-shirts and Club Membership Card to increase the experience but, it’s just for fun, and to help the club become bigger and better!
So, put on your nerd gear and come hangout with us sometime!
