Martel speaks on Calvin and Hobbes tonight

Lifted from the Post's Going Out Guide blog:

Nerd Nite

When was the last time you went to a bar to actually learn something? Other than all the bits of obscure trivia you've picked up at quiz night over the years, we're guessing it hasn't happened too often. That's where DC9's Nerd Nite comes in: Wet your whistle while stimulating your cranium with informative discussions on insects and storm chasing, and a special presentation about elusive "Calvin and Hobbes" creator Bill Watterson by Nevin Martell, author of "Looking for Calvin and Hobbes: The Unconventional Story of Bill Watterson and His Revolutionary Comic Strip." Local punk rockers Authorization will perform between lectures. Don't be late: A limited number of door tickets are available, but given the size of the venue, they'll go quickly.

Saturday at 6 p.m. DC9, 1940 Ninth St. NW. 202-483-5000. $10.
