WARNING: “Google is dispatching Glass Explorers in a series of ‘Glass Night Out’ events across the country Saturday,” Julianne Pepitone reports for NBC News.

“It’s a big PR move for Google, which is hoping its Explorer faithful will “help dispel Glass myths to all,” the company said via Google+,” Pepitone reports. “This is Google’s third major attempt to reduce the polarizing effect of its $1,500 Glass headsets.”

“The idea of a computer and recording device on one’s head has made some non-Glass users uncomfortable, and it has pushed the conversation about etiquette and social norms in a connected world,” Pepitone reports. “Establishments including bars and movie theaters have kicked out Explorers (whom critics call ‘Glassholes’).”

“As of Friday morning, Google’s ‘Explorer Events Calendar’ listed Night Out or meetup events for Saturday in eight cities: Boston; Los Angeles; Madison, Wisconsin; Milwaukee; New York; Orlando, Florida; Palo Alto, California; and Washington, D.C.,” Pepitone reports. “But Glass naysayers in small towns aren’t safe either. Explorers in other cities and towns posted on a Glass community page on Google+ to organize other meetups on Saturday.”
