Please Help!

As some of you know already me and a friend are starting up a steampunk restaurant.  We are starting to make up the business plan and need some information on the market, so we made up this survey!

It would help us greatly if you could fill this out!  It's only seven questions and will take no more than 2 minutes.

Thank you so so much! <3

Resolution and Stories

So I finally had a small heart-to-heart with my dad about my future after college.  Thinking about life after college has always been a source of immense stress and anxiety for me so I avoided talking about it (especially with my parents) or thinking about it as much as I could.  But my dad brought it up in the car on the ride home from hiking and asked me what I want to do and how I feel about my current major.  I told him truthfully that I would be too stressed-out in a high-pressure…

Interest in a Clockwork Cafe?

Although I am still just a college student with two more years until graduation I have always had the ambition to open up my own restaurant.  I now have the idea for "The Clockwork Cafe", a small restaurant that will serve baked goods, drinks, and lunch/dinner food for all ages with a Steampunk atmosphere located in the Historical Triangle of Virginia (Williamsburg, Jamestown, and Yorktown).

All I need right now is support and ideas from the Steampunk community (and any tips…

A Ramble About Texting at the Table and Derogatory Language

    Once upon a time, last month, a group of young people went to dinner before attending their high school prom. Of course they all had their smart phones in hand and they were texting each other at the table. One of the young men realized, far too late, that he was a little short of funds. He…

Bit of rebuttal to blogger's 'Most Steampunk Cities in America'

Norman, OK boasts many Steampunk & Victorian treasures.  In our last blog we shared info on our train, our award-winning art collection, our foundry, and more.  History, craftsmanship, and talent are important; however, much of steampunk was founded in literature's science fiction.…

Steampunk Paino (2)

So after much ado, the paint job is finally on. I had a massive headache getting the paint to behave in an appropriate and timely manner. The piano faces directly west, so the sun beats down on it pretty relentlessly during the longest days of our year. The heat was so intense that the paint started to blister with every coat. So every coat I had to sand down and touch up. I finally decided to work on it at night time, starting around 9pm and going home around midnight. The only drawback was…
