Clockwork Alchemy/FanimeCon

So, who wants to go to a steampunk con? I do!

I've never been to a con, so I thought I'd check this one out. Clockwork Alchemy will be in San Jose on May 24-27. If anyone wants to carpool, I'd be happy to drive.

There will be an art gallery, live music, RPGs, LARPing, panels, dance lessons and a "ball of epic proportions", among other things. Cosplay is encouraged but not required.

If you're interested, you can register here: registration.fanime.com

For more info on the con, check out the main site: www.clockworkalchemy.com

I'm planning on going Friday to catch the Wind Up Cabaret show, but registration gets you in all weekend, so I'm just as happy going on Sunday to see the Aural Alchemy Concert, whatever works best for everyone.

The time of this event is tentative, as I don't know what time the con opens.

    Cool, forgot all about this with all my schoolwork. Is this still a thing? I don't have a preference on days, but Sarah did, right?

      Yep, it's still a thing. I'm going to be down there on Sat, Sun, and Mon. Just let me know when you'll be there and we'll meet up!

    Also, SJ cops have a tendency to put up DUI checkpoints in San Jose during convention weekends. The highway on-ramps also suck for downtown and are easy to get lost around. Just a friendly heads up since this was my hometown.

    It's been three years since Tera and I last went to Fanime, but I believe this is the parking garage we used. It has a relatively cheap (compared to other SJ garages) all day rate and is a short walk to the Con. http://goo.gl/maps/fcDsc

    I'll be at Fanime anyway, and since my friends from that side of the con aren't interested in steampunk, it will be nice to have some people to hang out with! :) And if anyone's organizing a carpool, I'm totally in. I'm small, so I don't take up much space, and I'd be happy to chip in for gas.

    This sounds pretty fun; and it's exactly when my school ends! I'll have to figure out which day would be best once the site is more filled out tho. Still a huge yes (if possible!).

      She says it sounds like fun but I think she'l be at work on Fri. We don't want you to miss something on Fri tho, so if you have a plan in place before we can get one together, it's NP.

      I don't have a concrete plan. The con is all weekend, so whatever works for you guys. I know I want to catch one of the live music shows, either Fri. or Sun. Maybe both :) Everything else is gravy.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
