Nerdtacular

Billed as “the nerdiest convention you’ll ever attend,” Nerdtacular is a bit hard on itself. It would be far nerdier to attend, say, a conference on the economic trends of post-Civil War America. From where we are sitting, Nerdtacular, a two-day affair celebrating comics, games, toons, pop culture, vintage fashion, arts and crafts, just sounds like a whole lot of fun. There’s even a Christmas song karaoke contest, live music and photo ops with a Grinch Santa and/or a Darth Vader Claus. With over 100 vendors in participation, and spanning two full days, it also seems like a great time to snap up some one-of-a-kind presents for yourself and your favorite nerds. On Sunday, after a day or two at Nerdtacular, cap off your geeky weekend by staying in your Star Wars attire and heading on down to the San Antonio Wookiee Walk, which departs from the Tower of the Americas at 6 p.m. What a time to be alive! Free, 10am-9pm Sat, noon-6pm Sat-Sun, Wonderland of The Americas, 4522 Fredericksburg Road, (210) 785-3500, wonderlandamericas.com.
