So, gents, would any of you fine people in the Memphis area like to have a casual sort of steampunk meetup? Of course, Midtown around the University of Memphis would likely be the ideal sort of place for a meet, and there are quite a few public places we could meet at.

So yes, let's organize a Memphis Steam meet.

Hmmmm, sounds interesting. What about the Pink Palace? I am only 60 miles north of Memphis on the Mississippi (wanna make sure not to get it confused with that other Memphis over in Egypt) Might also be a good excuse to go walking in the botanical gardens. Or we could round up all the midsouth steampunks for a steampunk invasion of some public area.


edit: Of course, isn't MidSouthCon coming up?

I'm just over the mountains to the East (North Carolina), and might could use some vacation time!  I'd LOVE to meet up with fellow steampunkers!

Don't let these shakes go on, it's time we had a break from it. Send me to the rear! Where the Tides of Madness swell, and men sliding into Hell...

Oh please don't let these shakes go on...

Seems like here in the southern farm belt it is hard to organize meet-ups. I wish we had some sort of event we could use as an excuse to dress up and get together. There seem to be some in Missouri who are having a similar problem with finding one another then there are a few of us here in Arkansas who are having a hard time finding one another, a few in Memphis, and apparently someone over in South Carolina who would be interested in coming all the way over to Memphis for a vacation. There needs to be something to do though to make it worth all our whiles to get together. Anyone have any ideas?

There's quite a few things to do in and around NC/SC/TN/VA, but I'm not sure about other areas...  NC has Old Salem (16-1700s Moravian Settlement), several public/state/national parks, museums...  VA has the Virginia Transportation Museum, TN has Nashville, and SC has...  Good BBQ!  (Ok, so sue me, I dont know much about the other states...  I live in NC!)

I DO know there's a nice Zoo in NC, and GA has at least a DECENT steampunk community in/around the Atlanta area...
