As the days grow colder, we’re looking for more reasons to eat, drink, and be merry—with some historical subversiveness thrown in for good fun. Stop in for a dance (or a bite) at the historically-inclined vampire balls on All Hallow’s Day. Attend steampunk conventions in San Antonio, TX, Wichita, Kansas, or Lafayette, Louisiana. Gab with authors at Clockwork Couture’s book signing or party on the Prime Meridian at the Greenwich’s National Maritime Museum. These events and more are the gems that Kevin Steil, the Airship Ambassador, and I had pulled out from the brassy bits of the internetz to add to your social calendar.
