The Geek Girl Brunch – NYC Chapter had their DC Comics themed brunch this past Saturday and HOLY TONS OF GEEK GIRLS BATMAN! We had such an amazing time with you all! Thank you for coming! This was GGB NYC’s biggest brunch to date with more than 60 attendees! We are so grateful and proud that GGB is helping making IRL connections for so many Geek Girls! Many thanks to everyone who made this DC Comics themed brunch possible. A custom illustration from Cameron Stewart (squeee!) kicked us off; and we had an awesome Sponsor and a great venue for brunch! Absolutely one of the best brunches yet! We can’t wait to see what else awaits us in 2015! Read on after the cut for deets on our brunch Sponsor – Forbidden Planet (!!!!), the Venue – Playwright Irish Pub, the amazing Etsy sellers who gifted the brunchettes with stylish and fun accessories, and some surprise swag from Warner Bros!
We’re back from Brunch 9 From Outer Space!
Wasabassco is a great friend of Geek Girl Brunch and we’re all huge fans of their amazing, hilarious, often geeky and always “brilltarded” burlesque. What better way to celebrate November than with good friends, mimosas and geekery? Brunch 9 From Outer Space was the kick off to the incredible night of Wasabassco burlesque!
With help from the folks at Film Biz Recycling and Prop Shop we decorated with a decidedly SciFi flair! Wasa10th attendees were treated to a solar spread, including fresh baked bagels and pastries from La Bagel Delight and tasty scones, breakfast sandwiches and cider from Kiwiana! Grapefruit mimosas flowed from the bar and we observed many enterprising attendees purchasing shots to add to their ciders!
We set the mood during the cocktail hour by projecting Barbarella on stage, as the always well-dressed Wasabassco crowd nibbled and noshed waiting for the galactic-sized show to begin.
Wasabassco fans are like a big supportive family and many of them sport special pins that mark them as Agents of Wasabassco. Much of the Brunch 9 crowd was full of these lovely agents and it made Brunch 9 feel like a bit of home amongst the stars. In order to mix with the style of the crowd and the theme of the event the GGB co-founders dropped their everyday looks for decidedly more iconic personas!
Attendees enjoyed space-themed swag from SV Charms (amazing laser cut planetary necklaces), Boutique Academia (Space-themed jewelry) Zombie Jester Creations (cleverly repurposed comic art jewelry), mermaid says (Lego Star Wars jewelry) WineMakers Sister (TARDIS keychains for Timelords, obviously), and NextLife Toys (super cute Lego-style accessories)! The swag table was a busy place for delighted guests already excited about the tasty treats!
We were also delighted to see some awesome vendors on site. Our brunchette Melissa set up her shop Cool Geek Madness offering geeky jewelry and bow ties for ladies and gents. We all walked away from brunchette Jessica‘s Bat-Errang Jewelry table with punny bracelets. She was also vending for Booty and the Geek; an awesome geek clothing shop owned and operated by the evening’s first performer, Magdalena Fox!
Once cocktail brunch hour was over we all eagerly gathered to see the opening act, a very Geek Girl Brunch style number by Mags! She wowed us all with her haunting and powerful Amidala! Dancing to Bjork has never made more sense. Mags is clearly a brilliant costumer (her costume lit up!), and for those of us who wanted to take home some of her work we got to run back to the Booty and the Geek table to snag some pieces.
Thank you to everyone who enjoyed our little space cantina amongst the stars! Brunch 9 was a ton of fun! And of course, happy 10th Anniversary to Wasabassco!
S.H.I.E.L.D. called and we assembled… for brunch! Each brunch gets bigger and better. This month we had 29 brunchettes attend! Finding a brunch place that can fit 29 geek girls wasn’t the easiest, but Southern Hospitality in Hell’s Kitchen accepted the challenge. We have to thank Doris from Southern Hospitality for helping us orchestrate such an amazing event (and never once complaining about all of our emails).
It was a little under a year ago that we held a geek girl brunch at Macondo. It was only our second brunch. It was 4 people. Fast forward to this past Sunday when our little group had almost quadrupled in size to 14. (Not bad, eh?) Returning to Macondo with our ever growing troupe of Magical Girls, we filled the venue (half of their green room) with laughter, a lot of pink, and a wealth of new wonderful memories.
When it comes to alcoholic drinks, Geek Girl Brunchers are all over it. So for Star Wars Month we had to share our favorite drink recipes from a galaxy far far away. Bantha Milk aka Blue Milk Made by Jesse of Castles and … Continue reading
