Ronald Miller went “from geek to chic” way back in 1987 the Patrick Dempsey cult classic Can’t Buy Me Love – back when being a geek was a source of humiliation and ridicule and the nightmare of every high school kid.

But geek has never been more chic than today (at least in my opinion) and the first-ever Atlanta GeekUp is tomorrow to help you celebrate your geekiness!

Tomorrow – Sunday, March 20, 2011, from 2:00 PM until 6:00 PM – you can join hosts Chad Elkins and Wendy Rutherford to tour and experience the newest exhibit at Atlanta’s own Bremen Jewish Heritage and Holocaust Museum, “Zap! Pow! Bam! The Superhero: The Golden Age of Comic Books 1938-1950”. (After all, what’s more geeky than a good comic book exhibit?) More than just childhood diversions, however, early comics of the 1930s and 1940s had serious political and social commentary and value – explore classic comics with a private group tour of the exhibit, watch the Wonder Woman pilot episode (she battles the Nazis, y’all!), and experience one of Atlanta’s treasures – The William Bremen Jewish Heritage and Holocaust Museum.

The schedule is as follows:

  • 2:00 PM: Reserved Seating Area for viewing of the Wonder Woman pilot episode
  • 3:00 PM: Private guided tour of the comic book exhibit
  • 4:00 PM until you can’t take it anymore: Mix & Mingle at TAP, located at 1180 Peachtree St (at the corner of Peachtree and 14th). (meet in the bar area)

The Bremen has offered GeekUp guests a generous discount of $6.00 per person – so be sure to mention that you’re with the GeekUp when you enter the museum.

PLEASE R.S.V.P. via Facebook here to ensure adequate seating for the Wonder Woman screening – and go get your geek on!
