We put on a FREE show every month on the second Wednesday of the month (except for March!).

Doors for the main seating area open at 7:30 PM. The show starts at 8:00 PM.

Our regular monthly show happens at The North Door. Pueblo Viejo makes us tacos there.

It’s a pretty cool set-up. Be there and be square.

Nerd Nite 121 –Wednesday, December 11, 2019


As the year winds down, there’s a tendency to look back and think about what one did, why one did it, and which stories you’ll tell about it later. Come listen to three speakers talk about this from different points of view.

Join us at the North Door on Wednesday, December 11th for December’s Nerd Nite!

On months when available, ASL interpreters and our awesome librarian friends from the Austin Public Library will bring books! ♥


Paul E. Hendricks, “Everyone’s A Philanthropist (and other lies that are true)”– This talk will explore the nature of philanthropy. Is philanthropy really only for the wealthy? Or is philanthropy everyone’s responsibility? This topic will be explored through the lens of running a non-profit organization.

Paul E. Hendricks is a best-selling author, storyteller, and Co-Founder/Chief Pooper Scooper of Bully Ranch pit bull rescue and animal sanctuary.

Patrick Harris, “Riding with the Pack: Finding Your Tribe in Unlikely Places”– Exploring motorcycle club culture as a means for understanding the importance of finding your “tribe.” Brief history of MC culture and the experiences of being affiliated with a club in a world where wearing a cut puts a target on your back. Is it self-fulfilling prophecy, or self-preservation of counter culture?

Patrick is a psychotherapist, PhD student, college professor, and proud member of a local motorcycle club in the Austin community. He comes with ten years of experience in the field of psychology, and survivor of the 2015 Waco biker shootout.

Stas Bilder, “21 Days of Christmas”– In this talk about Christmas traditions and folklore in the Former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, big questions will be answered, like “How can a centuries-old rural tradition be adapted to urban life?”, “What’s the Old New Year?” or “How do we drink so much?” Plus (for those looking to marry a guy!) there will be a demonstration of how the Ancient Lore of Christmas Fortune Telling can predict your future husband’s personality!

Stas Bilder is a stranger from Ukraine, now living in Austin. He likes sailing, baking bread, sending postcards, and telling stories.
