West Michigan Steampunk Meetup

In costume is encouraged. With the Motor City Steampunk Symposium coming up and several members probably intending to go I thought it would be a good time to have a meet up. This is open to all members not just those going to the symposium. If we get a large enough group present we could discuss the possibility of making a regular meet and greet event at random places in Grand Rapids. Right now the bar doesn’t know we are coming, but since it is on a Sunday how crowded could they be?
