Mr. Adams, if you're still in the Pasadena Area, there is an Old Spaghetti Factory in Monrovia near the Car Max off the 210. you can see it from the freeway, North Side.

So then shall we include the old spaghetti factory as a location for potentially having a Los Angeles meet up?

Possibly...you should go first and let me know what you think...one problem is that it tends to be full of families and the like, so the atmosphere is sometimes sullied by screaming children :/

Indeed.  alright so the factory of italian pasta is out of the question due to Petulant Children..


So far we have:

*One of those Tearooms? (location is friendly for under 21 folks interested in meeting up and discussing steampunkery.)
*The Edison (I have not been there yet but it certainly looks pormising)
*Union Station (lots of trains, though the motif tends to be 1930's-1940's I think.)

I leave Maladiction Society off the list only because sundays are rather difficult for me personally as I must be awake at 6am on monday unless there is a three day weekend holiday.

any other suggestions before I break off an LA meetup as it's own separate thread with a poll?

Here in the north of France, the "venue" is obvious -- Jules Verne's home in Amiens.

I used to live in Amiens and had the great privilege of visiting Jules Verne's house and see his sepulture.
Quite an exciting experience !

Correction the atmosphere is ALWAYS sullied by screaming children.....however, if your crafty, there are a few places left, holes in the wall so to speak that are not the sort of place anyone takes their kids anymore...like penny arcades etc. I am sure they are still around.

I really think Pike Place market in Seattle could be added....wish I knew Portland better.

Here is the sculpture decorating his tomb :

It shows Jules Vernes coming out of his tomb, his hand stretching to the stars.

You can find some photos here http://www.linternaute.com/sortir/sorties/evenements/jules-verne/maison-jules-verne/diaporama/1.shtml, but I didn't take photos myself, what a pity.

there's the victorian in santa monica. they're open for events, but i have a feeling that it costs a more than just a couple shillings. same goes for the Huntington's Tea Room.

Huntington's tea room is 15 dollars per person per day.  There are some days they have free admission however (one of those being either today or tomorrow I believe) 

Also 100 dollars gets you a year's worth of passage.  Just a few trips would make up for that.

At any rate, sometime tonight I'll break off the LA meetup thread. just at work and don't have much time here.

Portland steampunks--is anyone going to be attending the Victorian-themed Convergence 13? I'm 90% sure I'll be traveling for that and it would be marvelous to have a steampunk contingent amongst all the Vickie aristocracy.

this is in PDX?

Yes, Convergence 13 is in Portland.  And if I come up with some other PDX locations and events, I'll certainly post them up here.  I'm pretty sure that I'll be taking part in at least some of the C13 events too.

I didn't know about it until Exo mentioned it, but it sounds fun to me.
ALSO, the Oregon Museum of Science and industry is showing body worlds 3...which could be VERY cool and they have steam engines and Tesla coils from what I understand. We could definitely have our own convergence on that, then hit the industrial cafe, or The Horse Brass in NE which is an authentic English pub, were one can smoke a cigar in peace!

I'd be game for sneaking out to play with Tesla when I visit Portland in May.

Anyone remotely close to Bloomington, Indiana? *sigh*

In a similar vein, the Manchester Museum of Science and Industry is rather excellent for all sorts of Industrial Revolution tech like this:



It's an interesting visit, free entry and very much like the one in Oregon has authentic English pubs nearby!  Wink
