Pricing Policy

Nerd Nite East Bay events are priced very competitively with other bay area lectures. Your ticket fee helps pay for venue, advertising, DJs, comped drinks and food and seats for speaker, video hosting, equipment, and other costs that Drinkified Learning, LLC incurs to make the events possible.

Our regular monthly events have been $8/per ticket for over two years for regular access. Because our rates are low and tend to sell out, we will only rarely offer a discount for any reason.

Tickets are required for admission into the venue, but do not guarantee anything else. Some events have, e.g. age or (safety) clothing requirements in addition to the requirement of a ticket. Seats are generally first-come/first-serve; you may love some talks and hate others; we are a live event and who knows what can happen.

We may occasionally offer premium/reserved seating sections and we may occasionally offer overflow seating to a streaming show. In either case, we will be transparent about what you are paying for and how much it will cost.

We sometimes host special events and the ticket price for these can vary considerably, but will be explicit in our promotional literature and ticketing sites.

Some ticketing providers and/or credit card processors that we work with have a surcharge. When they do, we will reveal the true cost of these surcharges & pass them on to you at the time of your purchase. We work to keep these surcharges low.

Refund Policy

All ticket sales are final, but we strive to give our audience the best possible experience. Please contact us using the form above if you were not happy with some aspect of our programming.

Privacy Policy

Nerd Nite events may have audio and/or video recording and/or photography.

When you purchase a ticket, we will use your personal information only for the purpose of fulfilling your order. By using the links on the right, you may optionally connect to us on social media or sign up for our email list, which sends out a maximum of two emails per month about our events. We will not sell your information or share it with third parties and will not retain your credit card information after your order has been processed.
