Nerd Nite Leavenworth is an informal, quarterly gathering at which nerds and non-nerds get together to meet, drink and learn something new. During each gathering, two to four featured presenters will speak about their topic of expertise for 15 minutes plus q & a, while the audience enjoys drinks and food.
