Throwing a party is one way of celebrating an important event in your life, seeing your relatives and close friends once again, or just unwinding. As a certified proud nerd or geek, the opportunity rarely comes by for you to organise your own party. It is absolutely natural that you go all the way in your preparations. That being said, here are some party ideas that you can definitely use for your next geeky or nerdy get-together.
With the sudden popularity boom of theatre productions everywhere and the mainstream media’s attention focusing on them, stage plays and musicals have been thriving everywhere. You can choose to buy tickets for your whole troupe or set up your own musical-themed party celebration. First, you need to find the appropriate venue. Your best bet is high-end restaurants that are both spacious and equipped with the necessary light and sound systems. However, you can always rent them, along with the technician to set them up for you. You will need to coordinate with your chosen venue’s management first.
Video Game or Tabletop Nights
For geeks and nerds, there’s almost no other better way of relieving stress than to just settle down with a video game and delve once more in the realm of fantasy. Hook up those video game consoles or bring those game boards and sheets and go full nerd as you and your friends go on another gaming night but with a twist. This time, though, hire a DJ to keep the music full blast. Better yet, hire a caterer to keep the food and drinks flowing. Make it a point to reserve the venue ahead of time and be sure to pick a place that is willing to put up with your noise and possible rowdiness. There is also the possibility of people not showing up for the event or cancelling due to circumstances beyond their control. Hence, do timely updates just in case other individuals would want to fill in.
Incorporate your interests into your celebration by decorating your venue, following your beloved hobbies or interests. Order cake with a personalised design online, following your theme. Ask your participants to come in costume for your own personal cosplay event, which you can turn into a mini-convention. For a more civil celebration, you can meet up with your friends to discuss similar interests such as literature, vehicles, and sports—but still in costume. Intimate function rooms will work well for this kind of setup as long as you decorate it according to your chosen theme. If you go for a gaming night, you will also need to book a place in advance since there are a lot of people out there looking to use party areas.
Sticking to the norms can get pretty dull quickly, especially if you’re catering to nerds and geeks. Let both your creative juices and passion flow to create a party that you and your friends will never forget. Don’t hesitate to think outside the box because YOLO—you only live once.
