I think if we found a coffee or tea house in the city on a weekend and then just go for a leisurely wander.  I'm busy this weekend with plans for Easter, but I'd love to have another meet up with folks.  I'd suggest somewhere near BART/Muni  downtown.

Comment by EngineRmRaphi on April 4, 2012 at 5:53pm

I'll turn over my brass gears in favor of SF.  Lovely venue and relatively easy for us across the Bay to get to.  I am no stranger to BART and the MUNI.  Or at least "no stranger" because of them... ;-p

I agree about it being time for another gathering - Can we have it somewhere we San Franciscans can get to??

Comment by EngineRmRaphi on April 4, 2012 at 2:44pm

Splendid suggestion.   So far no conflicts with horrid aspects of consensus reality such as employment.  However, I do have a Thur. bi-monthy commitment as a volunteer in the engine room of the SS Jeremiah O'Brien, last of the WWII Liberty ships, located at Pier 45.  For you actual old tech steam fanciers, a not-to-miss: a triple expansion steam engine!

Hi Cassandra.  I think it's high time we do have another outing.  Over on the Facebook group there was a suggestion for a weekend coffee shop meet up.  I think it's a simple and great idea.

Comment by Brian Gardner - Swing Goth on April 4, 2012 at 1:26pm

@Cassandra - One way to meet a couple of the local Steampunks is to stop by Alt Dance on Thursdays. It's a pretty big month for us over there. We'll be hosting a Clockwork Alchemy artist preview on the 12th and Swing Goth's 5th Anniversary party on the 19th! I hope some of you all can make one of those days. :-)

Here's the link to the website (http://www.swinggoth.com/sf/alt_dance/) and to the Facebook events:

I haven't met anyone in the Bay Area yet ( from here) would any one be interested in having some kind of introductory group meeting/outing?

Comment by Shadarko on February 14, 2012 at 2:22pm

I think the Castro Theater is probably the best place to see the mgm Oz.  

Comment by EngineRmRaphi on February 14, 2012 at 1:33pm

No, I haven't.  'Tis a pity.  However, I do have one Oz related "not to miss" experience.  In 2006, I saw the 1939 film at the Castro theatre.  Along with the call and response fabulous and famous audience participation. 

I spent close to four years (late 2003-2007) at the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley.  Not too shabby for a callous handed, oil stained, blue language using engine room denizen. 

Comment by Shadarko on February 13, 2012 at 4:21pm

Raphi, have you ever been to any of the International Wizard of Oz conventions, or possibly the Oogaboo Oz meetings that happen in Seattle?
