How to Incorporate Steampunk Style into Your Wardrobe

Resolution and Stories

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).
