Best Geek Bars In US, According to Wired

This month's Wired Magazine features a list of the top six geek bars in the US that can't be missed if you're a bar-going geek. While the concept of a geek bar excites me to no end, I do worry the crowd at such places is slightly more likely to use pick up lines like "you make me want to upgrade my Tivo" and "by looking at you I can tell you're 36-25-36, which by the way are all perfect squares." Just a guess. I must admit, their pick for Edinburgh Castle in my hometown of San Francisco is spot on. The A-listers include:

Miracle of Science
The giant menu on the wall is in the form of the periodic table of the elements, and it’s just a short unicycle ride from MIT.

The large selection of beers on tap is outdone by 25 mint-condition, 1980s arcade games lining the walls.

Quark’s Bar
Only at the Las Vegas Hilton can you drink Romulan ale and be amused by roaming Klingons.

For the rest of the Best Geek Bars visit Wired.

lmao, "perfect squares". I'm afraid I would have gone home with that guy back when I was single.

Seriously, you will love it. They have a good drink selection and many televisions if you want to catch a game. And the best part...during Sunday trivia you can get dinner for $4!

I'm a fan of the "geek scene" and I'd like to add that another fun way to get your geek-on is at Trivia Night. I was living in Boston for a few years and there was an EXCELLENT trivia night at a bar called The White Horse. I would go every Sunday night and compete on a team with some of my college friends. Topics included pop culture, history, science and so forth. Perfect for your inner nerd. If anyone knows of something like this in NY please share...
