The YELP Geeks Out Event

Published On August 30, 2013 | By Sweet1Lani | Community

ml The city has been buzzing since the launch of the PGH TechShop in March. This unique “playground for creativity” offers access to professional equipment and software to make pretty much anything you can think of. What does that mean exactly, you may ask? Well here’s what they have onsite for members to utilize: laser cutters, plastics and electronics labs, a machine shop, a wood shop, a metal working shop, a textiles department, welding stations and a waterjet cutter. Members also have open access to design software, featuring the entire Autodesk Design Suite, huge project areas with large work tables, and free coffee and fresh popcorn are always available. If you haven’t had a chance to check out this unique “geek” community, now is your chance! YELP is hosting a “Geeks Out” event on Thursday, September 5 from 8-10PM at the TechShop located in Bakery Square.

Plan for a night of geek-dom glory featuring free food and drinks, tunes from DJD PGH, and photo booths to capture your geeked-out garments. The event is free, technically, but they are requesting a $5 donation, which will go to Big Brothers and Big Sisters.
