Thursday’s Nerd on the Scene

Post by Mels Lien

The first day of Nerd HQ is always the greatest. Everyone’s still exhausted and jet lagged, but they still manage to muster up the energy to attend panels and stand in a forever-long merch line.

This year’s opening day was particularly exciting: with a multitude of panels, including ‘Into the Storm’, ‘The Giver’, and ‘The Last Ship’, hosted by Zachary Levi himself, raising over $6,000 per session and photo ops bringing in an additional $14k, Nerd HQ has started off with a proverbial bang.

Of course, everyone’s favorite Nerd Party on Thursday evening remained a Fan favorite. With crowds of geeks and geek culture connoisseurs cramming into an already full dance floor and photo booth lines on constant rotation, the party lasted well into the morning hours and attracted high profile guests such as Zachary Quinto and Krysta Rodriguez. Friday will see additional appearances by Levi, Adam Baldwin, Yvonne Strahovski and Evangeline Lilly.
