Nerd Nite NYC makes its triumphant return to the isle of Manhattan to kick-off its 2018-2019 season on Friday September 28th, as it relocates to Caveat NYC, the sciencey, stunning speakeasy that showcases playful, intelligent nightlife. This Nite features three funny-yet-smart presentations about how we can prevent getting hit by a killer asteroid, what opioid and meth deaths look like (yes, with pictures) by one of our favorite presenters of all-time, and how Creationists use misleading language and data to try to win supporters.  Wowzers!  Tickets here:
