The Valley Nerd Watch!
The shortest Nerd Watch on record! For Mystery Reasons, this week is real light on the ground when it comes to events. It’s as though there’s some sort of ur-event, an event that eclipses all others and leaves a wake that can be described as nothing so much as a sickening void.
Whatever this strange power is, you can rest assured we will fight it! We will with our dying breath strike back at whatever prevents people from putting on a ton of interesting events on the 24th, 25th, and 26th of December in the Valley!
But for real have a great time with this weekend. Regardless of whether or not you’re specifically celebrating Christmas, we hope you have the capacity to go see people you dig and have a good time with one of the few days of the year most people get off. You deserve some time off! You’re great, and we can’t wait to spend another year with you, telling you about stuff that is fun.
If you want to do us a favor this holiday weekend, just ask us “Explain in detail your opinions about the new Star Wars movie. Include all possible detail.” and then nod politely for approximately 5 hours.
Want to make someone’s holiday better? Check out the Valley Creators page and purchase something from one of our many local creators!
Might we suggest in particular that you partake of Epimas? We may! We just tested it out, and it worked!
As always, be sure to check out the Weekly Events page! There are a lot of fun things happening this and every week! And don’t forget to check out the updated Book Clubs List!
