Geek Dinner, April 6th, Max's Place

Max's Place has a new location right on the square, with more tables and a new stage. You'll be able to try them both out at the next Geek Dinner, because a special Geek Musical Attraction will be there. Five Year Mission ( is an Indianapolis band trying to create an original song for every episode of the TV series Star Trek. Last November at Starbase Indy, the group released their first CD ("Year One") and plan to continue releasing one CD a year at that event ... leaving us hanging for another eight months. 5YM will be performing some of the songs for the Bloomington Geeks at our gathering at Max's Place. They will also bring their CD to sell for $10, so bring some extra cash to grab a copy. If you have kids who are into sci-fi, bring them along to enjoy the show!

SociaLens (, a local social media consultancy helping organizations thrive in the digital age, played a big part in getting the band to Bloomington. They'll also be providing some free pizza and will introduce the band, whose performance will then segue into the regular Open Mike Night event at Max's.All this on top of the regular enticements of food, drink, and talking tech with local technologists, science fiction buffs, entrepreneurs, and makers. Don't miss it! See you at Max's Place, Wednesday, April 6th, at 6PM.

To help deal with the logistics involved, we need to have a good idea of who is attending. We have space at Max's for 60-80 people. Please visit to RSVP.
