Ladies and gentlemen, it has come to my attention that another meeting of Steampunks is taking place in less than two weeks. On March 12, 13, and 14, Steampunks will gather in Emeryville, CA for the Nova Albion Steampunk Exhibition.
If you find yourself on the west coast (or willing to travel) with little scheduled on the aforementioned weekend and looking for an escape, I highly recommend you consider going to this Exhibition. I’m genuinely surprised that I did not hear about this event sooner, because there seems to be some very exciting events taking place, including a Steampunk ball on Friday, the concept of which always excites me. On Saturday, there is going to be a Bartitsu & Single Stick demonstration with canes which, as a martial artist who has worked with cane self-defense tactics, I sincerely wish I could see.
You can book tickets to the event on their main page. Hotel rooms are still discounted until the 25th of February, but they are on a first come, first serve basis, so do book your quarters will all available haste if you wish to attend.
