I just recently started organizing Geek Dinners in the Bay Area.  We had a good turn out for our first “official” Geek Dinner.  About 20 people showed up to eat with us.  It was great!  I must admit though, I had an “evil plan” when organizing the Geek Dinner.  Mmuuuhahahaa!  Ok, it wasn’t actually an “evil plan”.  I just think it’s fun to say that.  So, here’s the plan…

At each Geek Dinner, I’m going to try to do a Giving 2.0 thing along with it.  So, I created the next Geek Dinner for next week.  Since I spoke with Kevin, the Community Service Liaison at the UCSF Children’s Hospital, I thought it would be a good idea to ask for trinkets for the kids at the Geek Dinner.  So, if you’re planning on joining us for dinner, bring some trinkets for the kids.  The trinkets can be pencils, stickers, erasers, or any fun little kid thing.

I hope you can join us for Geek Dinner  Sign up on Upcoming.  There’s a limited guestlist.


I called the UCSF Children’s Hospital a while ago to see if we could bring Halloween candy to the children at the hospital.  I  spoke with Kevin, the Community Service Liaison at the Children’s Hospital.   He said that it would be a better idea to get trinkets for the kids, since sugar isn’t healthy for sick kids.  He also mentioned that they do Bingo nights and various other activities for the children at the hospital which they also need trinkets for.  I thought it might be a good idea if we give trinkets after Halloween, for their other activities.  We can get a little more organized and have more time to put something together that way.  What do you think of going to buy trinkets for the kids and having dinner afterward?
