The environmental craze has not only spawned awareness of eco-issues among the masses, but it’s brought out something few thought they’d ever see: Green nerds. April 16, Nerds at Heart, a dating event devoted to bring together all different kinds of smart (nerdy) people, hosts “Dating for Nerds: Earth Day Edition” at Erie Street’s J. Patrick’s Bar and Grill, which celebrates the upcoming Earth Day with green games, prizes and giveaways. What exactly qualifies as a green nerd? “We get the ‘Am I green enough?’ question a lot, but really there is no litmus test. If you think you are, you probably are,” says event co-founder Bathsheba Birman. Birman says these events usually bring in everyone from average-looking “nerds at heart” to your stereotypical “Revenge of the Nerds” type, and it ends up creating an inclusive, no-pressure environment. Partial proceeds from the event will be going to the Community for Alternative Sources of Energy, a student-run organization out of Northside Prep High School. Briman’s best-case scenario: “Hopefully people will lock eyes with the nerd of their dreams and make little nerdy babies.” All the while helping the Earth.
