GGB Austin – Geek Swap

GGB Austin – Geek Swap

The Austin GGB chapter wanted to start the new year off with a bang! So we decided to host our first Geek Swap! What is a geek swap you might ask? Well it is where we asked all our members to bring with them one item to share with the brunch, whether it’s a good book they just read, a podcast they love, or a con that they always like to attend. We can safely say that our first annual geek swap was a great success!

We meet at Baker St. Pub where the food was delicious and the mimosa’s were just a dollar! The staff was also very accommodating for our large group. Everyone especially seemed to enjoy the fish and chips. We may come back to host our Dr.Who/Sherlock brunch.


We had a great turnout! Lots of new faces joined us this month. Everyone seemed to have something cool and interesting to share! Lots of topics were discussed such as, Revel Con, The Adventure Zone, Sword and Laser, and Forever Young Adult just to name a few. This brunch definitely showed how diverse our group is and all the different type of fandoms there are. We are also proud to have of memeber Mandy represent the Austin chapter as the Geek Girl of the Month! Way to go Mandy!

Some of our generous members even gave out some lovely swag! Yes, your eyes don’t deceive you, that is a tribble! Big thanks to Splattycake Crafts and Turner’s Tokens for the gifts. Also thank you to our members who joined us at the brunch and shared so much cool information.

The GGB Austin chapter will host our next brunch on March 26th. Please join us for our “Crazy Cat Lady” brunch at Austin’s only cat cafe Blue Cat Cafe.
