I've lived in Kansas City for about three years, and due to my tendency to be an introvert I really haven't found any friends outside of work. I tend to get along best with nerdy intellectual/perpetual student types, but am open to branching out a bit. I've tried Meetup groups with little success. Anybody have ideas I could check out? KC specific or more general wouldn't hurt either. Thanks!

Lastminutegiftsfilter: My boyfriend's birthday is coming up soon, and I have no idea what to get him! We're both geeky but his interests run far more deep than mine do in terms of comic books and gaming and things like that. The problem is: he owns everything already! I plan on consulting with his roommate, who shares many of his interests, but I'd love some input from the hivemind on this. For reference, he's 28, works at a video company and we both live in Los Angeles. [more inside]
