Music lovers have their gigs, soccer fans have their football pitches, beer lovers have craft pubs and rugby fans have… well, most of the rest of the country actually. What is there left for the humble nerd who doesn’t want to draw attention to themselves by playing Magic: The Gathering in Mug and Bean? Why, Johannesburg’s first dedicated geeking venue, DeeTwenty, of course. The place where geeks go to relax among others of their kind.
We’ve written about DeeTwenty extensively in the past, but the Randburg clubhouse officially opened its doors this weekend. Here’s some piccies of geeks like you having fun in relaxed environs, and a short interview with founder Owen Swart – that’s Commodore Owen Swart of the USS Dauntless – about why and how DeeTwenty got off the ground.
