… and the Geek shall inherit the earth?

Technology Bytes is a weekly call-in radio show at KPFT every Wednesday evening (available via podcast in case you forget), and they typically hold a monthly Geek Gathering at hangouts around town here there is feasting, fun, and WiFi merriment.

They used to regularly hang out at Kaveh Kanes for Geek Gatherings, but Kaven Kanes is no more. So for April, they have selected Tropioca as the site of the Geek Gathering:

We’ll be trying out Tropioca on Milam, just South of Downtown. Tropioca specializes in bubble tea, coffee and smoothies. They also serve up desserts and free WiFi. For those not in the know, a Geek Gathering is exactly what is sounds like. The geeks from this show as well as a bunch of our listeners all descend upon a single location and geek out over gadgets, technology and the latest geek humor.

If you have not experienced in person the greatness of the throbbing vein in “Fighting” Jay Lee’s forehead as he repeats the mantra of “Spyware!” you have not yet lived. Trust me, for I have seen it with mine own eyes, and I am a changed man.

Sure, the Astros are up against the Artists Formerly Known As The Expos, pitting Preston Wilson against his old battery-mates in addition to countless fans groaning fro mthe Crawfords at Preston’s lackluster fielding skills. But there’s always Gamechannel on MLB.com to track Bad Back Backe’s first start of the season, so get your geek on and head to Tropioca Friday evening.

See you there, and bring your pants!

    I’ve tried the Tapioca place on Milam already. Nice environment. Good for studying for college students and great smoothies, tapioca, etc. :)

    Jay Lee is awesome. You must meet him. And drink whatever beer he recommends.
