Every summer, San Diego is beset by a plague of cape-wearing, Dr. Who-loving, George Lucas-embittered nerds. Cirque du Soleil decided it needed to get in on some of that sweet, sweet geek action.

They have no idea what they’re in for.
Wayne Gretzky was at Tao on July 9 to celebrate son Ty’s 21st birthday. The younger Gretzky, along with his sister Paulina hung out in the club until 3 a.m. In a perfect world, Gretzky would’ve sent Marty McSorley to be Ty’s personal bouncer at their table. If you didn’t get that, ask a Canadian to explain it.
