I am not doing anything geeky this weekend. I’m going to do my best for a new personal record in the Rock the Night 5K then spend Saturday and Sunday recovering from my efforts. Still the Geek Weekend Guide offers up two fun events for those not laid waste by physical activity.

Arcade, Video, and Game Room ExpoThe 1st Annual Arcade, Video, and Game Room Expo

The Crown Plaza in Rosemont is hosting this first of its kind event. The expo promises hundreds of arcade games set to free play, vintage game tournaments, and a number of guest appearances.

Pokémon Go Cosplay Meetup: Valor vs. Instinct vs. Mystic

Stephanie Plus Verb and The Fantasy Realm of Chicago are hosting a Pokemon Go meet up at  Konak Pizza & Grill, Friday night at 8:00 pm. Cosplay is not required, but there will be a costume contest for those who dress up. If you’ve reached level 5, wear your team colors!
