Nerd Nite Philly is a monthly lecture series that generally takes place on the first Wednesday of each month. Topics can span really anything, as long as the information shared has an academic purpose.
February's lecture will take place at Frankford Hall and focus on the history of the Delaware River. Author Hal Taylor will host the discussion and use illustrations from his book, "The Illustrated Delaware River," through the presentation.
During the Nerd Nite, attendees will learn the history of civilization along the River, who founded and named it, which explorers were the most infamous, what oily fish have to do with the River and many other tidbits.
Attendance to the show costs $5 per person and guarantees happy hour specials through the lecture.
