Vict,  Thank you so much for the link.  Malady and I just happened to drive by there this last Saturday and there were a number of artisans setup on the sidewalk outside the cafe showing their wares.  We, of course, had to stop and shop.  How fortuitous.  It was nice to see a gathering.  I wish there were some social events here in the valley though.  Perhaps some of us locals can invade the cafe in full regalia some evening.

I believe I saw a post about a steampunk themed diner/tearoom/pub (don't remember exactly) on Burbank Blvd in N Hollywood or Van Nuys.  Does anyone remember this and what is the name of the place?
