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?

"Baron Christoph Von Claus will be visiting Mistletoe Mall this Friday Dec 7"

I wish I could tolerate Facebook.  I am far more comfortable in a forum such as this.

By the by, I had mentioned something about a gathering at Travel Town a few weeks ago, and since there has been practically no response ( and my wife has since committed us to attend our goddaughter's birthday party ), we will not be there.  I suppose this is a poor season to try to gather as everyone is busy with the varied holidays quickly approaching.  Perhaps in the spring.

Hello, We were looking for an active group in the Los Angeles/ Ventura County area. I see that the last post here was in 2011. Is this still an active group?

Mr. Gloam... I would love to, having been wanting to go there since I've heard of it as a teenager...

you might also want to extend the invite to the G.E.A.R.S. group on the Empire... they're based out of Riverside

There seems to have been little activity here lately.

Would there be any interest in gathering at Travel Town on the second Sunday of December 2012 (12/8/2012) for a walkabout and photo op?  There are numerous vintage steam locomotives and railroad cars just waiting to have their pictures taken.

Weather permitting of course.
