Nadia Daniel wakes up at 3:30 a.m. to get ready to head to work every day. Brendan Weitzman moonlights after work as a trivia host and is often running on fumes at the end of a week. These two sound like they could use a reboot.
Daniel and Weitzman are the winners this year of the third Geek Style Reboot, a special package presented in partnership with Nordstrom in which two hard-working geeks get a day of pampering at the retailer’s flagship store in downtown Seattle. Daniel and Weitzman were selected from a pool of entrants and will enjoy their relaxing day on Thursday before attending the GeekWire Gala.
Our winners will grab lunch, hit the spa, meet with personal stylists and beauty consultants. They will select new head-to-toe outfits, provided by Nordstrom, and get prepped to attend the big Gala party later that evening at the nearby Showbox at the Market.
For the rest of you happy holiday geeks who we plan on seeing at the Gala, be sure to take advantage of the Nordstrom Beauty Booth at the Showbox where consultants will be on hand to help you freshen up. Nordstrom will also join us on stage to give away $500 gift cards to lucky attendees.
