Steampunk event at the Carousel Museum in Bristol, CT this Saturday!
Classes and workshops from 10am - 6pm, Cabaret from 7pm to midnight. More details on classes, etc. at the link above. I'm hoping to get in on one of the hands-on workshops. Books are great, but sometimes it's nice to work on something and have someone right there to point out problems and solutions.
For those interested, showing your ticket at the Mark Twain House and Museum on Sunday gets you $6 off your admission. It's well worth going -- gorgeous house, folks there who know not just about the family but about the times they were living in, etc. This is in Hartford, CT: https://www.marktwainhouse.org/
We're only going for the academy on Saturday, as that's a long enough day for us. It'll be a nice additional "celebration" of our anniversary, without being overly tiring.
The carousel museum is worth seeing on its own merits, including being able to see some of the carousel animals being restored.
And we won't have to leave for lunch, as bytchearse
will be there, running Oak, Ash, and Thorn Tavern. He's planned the various menu items so that they're not only tasty but easy enough to make GF. It's a relief not only to have one less thing to worry about while we're on the road, but to actually have food I can look forward to eating!http://www.brassringct.com/oak-ash-and-thorn-tavern-menu/
