FAQ

What is Geek Girl Brunch?

We are meetup group of ladies who geek out together, usually when mimosas are involved.

Who can join Geek Girl Brunch?

Identifying women (which includes transgender women), gender fluid and non-binary people as long as they are comfortable with the “geek girl” label. All gender events do occur, but they are scheduled at the discretion of each chapter.

What’s up with the themes on your blog and at brunches? 

We came up with themes because… they’re fun! Themes keep people interested and excited. It allows each and every geek girl brunch to be extra special, and you’ll always be looking forward to the next one.

If we’re covering a theme close to your heart, you have more incentive to go. If not, you get to pass and have a diehard fan girl take that spot.  Since we cater to a wide variety of geek girls, we like to take the opportunity to shine a spotlight on any given fandom. If you’re an expert on that fandom, we get to shine the spotlight on you!

What should I wear?

As stated previously, themes give you another reason to look forward to brunch. Every brunch is a special event to be celebrated. And half the fun of a celebration is in the planning of the outfit! Themes let you save yourself some of the headache of last-minute “What am I gonna wear?!,” by giving you an idea to work around.  We get to very literally wear our geek pride on our sleeves. If you’re idea of theme appropriate is a printed t-shirt and jeans, or full body armor (maybe a little difficult to eat in but…), both are fine unless otherwise noted, and you’ll always know up front if the theme calls for a special dress code (i.e. Lolita brunch).

We ask only that you not wear anything vulgar or offensive.  If you do, it may be your last GGB. When in doubt, send us a pic.

Also, it’s been a tradition to follow-up brunch with a bit of a shopping trip and/or continued imbibing at another location, so do make sure those shoes are comfy!

How often does Geek Girl Brunch meet IRL?

GGB hosts brunches once a month. In the future, we may have special outings in lieu of or in addition to a traditional brunch. (i.e. Lolita brunch at Sakura Matsuri in the Brooklyn Botanic Garden)

How do I know if I’m geeky enough? 

You can be a geek about ANYTHING. No one is a geek about EVERYTHING.

What if I’m under 21? 

Brunch is brunch. If you can’t legally get liquored up, you can still partake of the pancakes. Besides, mocktails are a thing. Just know that if we venture into a bar afterward, we’ll have to part ways. That being said, 18+ please!

Can you help me make a Geek Girl Brunch, but for men? 

Geek Girl Brunch was created out of necessity because geek culture can be hostile towards marginalized people. So although you may have no ill intentions, helping you create a male-only club would go against our mission.
