Networking and Nakama (Friday, May 24, 2019 :: 7 pm to 10 pm)- Like years past we know that Phoenix Fan Fusion is going to be so packed with Arizona’s geek community that we will hardly get the chance to see one another except for rare moments in passing. To counter that, The Geek Lyfe wants to take that Friday night and call all four corners of our community to just meet up and hang out.
