There is another fabulous Capital Geek Girls Ladies’ Night happening this week at the Comic Book Shoppe on Bank Street in Ottawa! Those of you who have attended past ladies’ nights know how awesome this event is. The Shoppe opens it doors exclusively to female-identified geeky girls, making a very inviting and super fun night full of welcoming vibes and little treats. Grrls are invited to attend dressed as-is, to the nines, or in costume. There’s no fee to get in, but there are goodies once you come…
-The Comic Book Shoppe offers a 10% discount on everything in the Shoppe (other than stuff already on sale), and provides loot bags to the first 45 people who make a purchase; they are also offering 50% off back-issues , Manga, Yaoi, and Numbered posters…there are more deals, so check out the Facebook event posting for details.
-The loot bags promise goodies from the Geek Girls, the Shoppe, Venus Envy, Sweetpea Treats, Fat Girl Food Squad, and many many more.
-Treats from Auntie Loo’s vegan and gluten-free treats.
-Geek manicures by Thetis for $13.
-Prizes for best costume.
-Gaming in the basement, including Magic the Gathering, Heroclix, and other board games.
-A mini-craft fair with local artisans.
-Massages from my favourite massage studio, Body Poets Massage.
-Reps from Hollaback! Ottawa.
-And other random fun.
The staff on site will be all female, and you can ask any questions that’ll help you get your geek on, or find new geek favourites.
I hope you’ll join the Capital Geek Girls for this super fun evening! It’s a free evening of geeky girly happy times, and it’s always jam-packed, so be ready for a crowd! Check out the Facebook event page for all the details.
