January Sunday Steampunk Diversion 2017!

Come join us on January 15, 2017 from 3 to 7pm at Arbor Brewing Company Microbrewery . Enjoy good food and drink with great people!

So, roughly about 6 years ago (yes, it’s been that long!), a group of likeminded steampunk individuals started quasi monthly gatherings in Ypsilanti. Over time, the organizers and locations have changed, but one thing that hasn’t is the great feeling of meeting up with good friends and enjoying an afternoon together.

And for those of you who may be wanting to dip your toes in the local steampunk community, this is a perfect first outing. No pressure, no hype, come and join us!

Please also remember that the service style at the brewery is pub style, so please remember to bus your table 🙂
