After the successful test run at Pachamama's Star Bar last month (check the Larryville Chronicles to see what went down), Nerd Nite is officially a go in Lawrence. Tonight, the event — "an informal gathering at which nerds get together for nerdery of all sorts ... to meet, drink and learn something new" — has its official debut. Think of November's presentations as a cocktail party, while this is the debutante ball. In any event, you'll have the chance to see three speakers on such interesting topics as "Superheroes as Symbols of Justice." There are also drink specials and a chance to hobnob with really interesting people. Doors open at 7:30 p.m., and the free event kicks off at 8. For more information, see the website
