Are you a nerd — or looking for one? Come to Union Hall on Dec. 29

Bookish: Jin Moon is organizing a “Nerd Speed Dating Night” at Union Hall in Park Slope on Dec. 29.

Union Hall will host an unprecedented speed dating night for nerds, because nerds need love, too!

An appropriate soundtrack of 1980s hits will play as participants meet and greet — and rotate after every third song.

After the initial meetings, each “nerd” will write down the name of a suitable co-nerd, and the pair will get a second chance at love. Those who don’t find their other half will get their own second chance at a group mixer.

Organizer Jin Moon (pictured) says that all are welcome, no pocket protector required. About 30-40 people have already signed up — though Moon says there’s been more interest from the distaff side of the nerd community. So geeky guys, here’s your chance to find your perfect bespectacled babe — in time for a New Year’s.

“The definition of a nerd is very broad these days, we’re not talking your ‘Revenge of the Nerds’-type poindexter,” she said.

“I Heart Nerds Speed Dating Night” at Union Hall [702 Union St. at Fifth Avenue in Park Slope, (718) 638-4400], Dec. 29 at 7:30 pm. RSVP to heartspeeddating@gmail.com.
