N4N was enjoying a midday repast at an Indian joint on Wickenden Street last week when he overheard someone at a big table trying to describe the difference between "a geek" and "a nerd." Bigger minds are needed to clarify this distinction, but you can do a little field work by checking out the latest Providence Geek Dinner, slated to happen tonight at AS220, 115 Empire St., Providence, from 5:30-9 PM.
In other goings on:
-- Josh Miller's Local 121, which has been heralded here and in the ProJo, is set for a grand opening tonight.
-- AS220's similarly situated Dreyfus Hotel project, noted in the Phoenix and in the ProJo, will have a ribbon-cutting celebration tomorrow at 3 PM.
-- The Rhode Island Young Democrats will have a 6 PM happy hour tomorrow at tazza, in Providence.
