DAMN DIRTY GEEKS SPECIAL EVENTS
The Damn Dirty Geeks are creating special fan events and meet ups we know will interest our fellow geeks!
ANNOUNCING A NEW DATE AND VENUE FOR PLANET OF THE APES DAY 2016!
The Damn Dirty Geeks’ second annual gathering to celebrate the classic 1968 film PLANET OF THE APES and all its sequels, remakes and re-imaginings is now happening on Saturday, April 2, 2016.
We are hosting this fan meet up event at the Idle Hour Cafe in North Hollywood, CA (map below) beginning at 5:00pm on April 2nd, and we invite all POTA fans locally and around our planet to attend, either in person or via social media platforms online!
If you’re in the Los Angeles area and plan to attend our POTA Day event, please RSVP on our Facebook event page and note that you plan to be here in person so we can get a headcount, as our event space is limited.
For those who can’t attend in person, we encourage fans in other cities to join us via Skype and Facebook, of course. You’re welcome to RSVP to our Facebook event page, but please note that you’ll be joining in online only — where there’s unlimited room for you APES fans to join us!
More details will follow soon on the event content and activities, perhaps including some special guests joining the Damn Dirty Geeks and unique POTA Day items.
Please RSVP now before the event fills up, mark April 2nd in your calendars, and prepare to GO APE with the Damn Dirty Geeks on PLANET OF THE APES DAY 2016! We welcome you to share our event and flyer with your fellow APES fans and friends. We’ll see you there, humans!
