HOLLYWOOD, Calif.- This month, website start-up Nerdular will be hosting a dinner event celebrating the launch of their Hollywood office. The dinner will take place on May 23, 2014 from 6:00 p.m.-10:00 p.m. at Nerdular’s new office in Hollywood at their new WeWork office space. Prior to dinner, staff, investors and press will be able to tour the offices and get a glimpse of the future of Nerdular.

The dinner itself will take place at 7:00 p.m. in the main event room, and will be catered by Los Angeles restaurant El Compadre. The launch event for the new office will coincide with the launch of the website itself. Emceeing the event itself will be Ken Levine, co-founder and creative director of Irrational Games. 

"I am so excited to see where this goes," said Levine. "They've got something promising here that I have not seen before." 

Levine is known for creating and writing the hit Bioshock video game series. The series concluded its critically-acclaimed final installment, Bioshock Infinite in March of 2013. In addition to the success of the Bioshock games, Levine made headlines in the geeky world recently with the announcement of the closing of Irrational Games.

Although the production studio may no longer exist, the employees of Irrational Games will be coming with Levine to his new venture. An invitation to Nerdular's dinner event has been extended to the employees of Irrational Games. Nerdular co-founder, Gina "Girlie" Salguiero, described the event as a "new start for everyone, even some of our guests."

Nerdular is a website start-up originally created in Jacksonville, Florida in late 2012. Founded by a mother and son duo, the bootstrapped company found investors through Jacksonville's OneSpark event, a crowdfunding festival that occurred this April. Built on a mission of combining an online geeky marketplace with a social networking platform, Nerdular has spent the past year partnering with comic book shops and nerdy businesses.

When Nerdular.com launches, the marketplace will host independent vendors selling comics, movies, video games, collectibles and geeky memorabilia. The social networking aspect will allow users to collaborate on projects, trade items and discuss topics in the geek world.
