This month the Geek Girl Brunch celebrated our love for all things musical! From Hamilton to A Very Potter Musical and everything in between! The brunch was held at Yorktown Lanes, who generously lent us their party room. In addition to enjoying delicious food, we tried something new this brunch and sang Karaoke! This was so much fun, even Toothless joined in. Everyone joined in for a group rendition of The Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen.
**Next month brunch will be held on Saturday, April 13th. We will be celebrating our love of PBS!**
Geek Girls Love Wizard World!
Geek Girl Brunch Cleveland was represented at @WizardWorld Cleveland this month! We were generously given a fan booth and a panel to spread awareness about our group and gain new members. We added 45 new members to Geek Girl Brunch Cleveland from our efforts at Wizard World!
Game Night, Book Club and Meetups in March
Game Night was held the last weekend of March, and the game theme was party games! We played Mystery Date Catfished edition, Fake News Card Game and a trivia game using Amazon Echo! The next game night will be held on April 27th.
Book Club met the last weekend of March at The Saffron Patch in Beachwood. Everyone enjoyed the delicious lunch buffet, especially the Naan! We read Atomic City Girls this month, and got to enjoy the perspective of our nuclear engineer in the group, Debbie Goodenow, about how the book compares to the reality. The next book club will be held April 28th, and the theme is Manga.

DIY Geeky Girl Corner
This month we revel in our love of Musicals. Who doesn’t love a good musical from Disney movies to stage performances? But what do you do with all the playbills? Why not make a collage in a big frame! Then you can enjoy them all the time and they aren’t just in a box somewhere hidden.

What is your GGB Origin Story?: So this is going to be long an convoluted so brace yourselves. Back in May 2016 I made an off the cuff post on Facebook about my adoration for a group called Baby Metal. A friend of mine from high school told me one of her friends was seeing Baby Metal at that very second and we needed to be friends. So we became friends on Facebook and discussed meeting up. She mentioned that she hoped to be in town soon for some meetup called Geek Girl Brunch and I signed up IMMEDIATELY. I missed that May brunch but went to the June brunch which was Harry Potter themed. I went in full costume and was thrilled to see that I wasn’t the only wierdo in cosplay. That girl that told me about Geek Girl Brunch later went on to create Geek Girl Brunch Youngstown (Love you Dana!) and I have attended every single brunch since! That means I have been to 31 brunches!
