Steampunk Spectacular In Madrid

Reminder: CosplayABQ’s very first play date is this Saturday! ***A couple changes on meeting locations…

We will be meeting outside The Engine House Theater (next to and behind The Mine Shaft) at 3pm (in full steampunk attire) for the Scavenger Hunt, which will take us intrepid explorers all about the town of Madrid! The Scavenger Hunt will begin promptly at 3pm (everyone gets the list at the same time). Get there a little sooner to sign in at the reg table, which will be in our space in front of The Engine House Theater. (That’s also where the merchants will be set up!)

Following the hunt, at 4pm, we gather (again, outside The Engine House Theater) for group photos (those in steampunk garb only). There will be both amateur and professional photographers on hand. Everyone is encouraged to bring their cameras and take as many photos as they’d like throughout the event.

After the photo shoot, we break for dinner. Let’s all head back to The Mine Shaft (we’re going to make the owner really happy this weekend!) and have a group dinner there! (In our steampunk threads–how cool is that?!) Here’s The Mine Shaft’s Menu: http://www.themineshafttavern.com/menu.html

[Just called The Mine Shaft to be sure they will have the full dinner menu Saturday night (they will) and that they can accommodate a large group of us for dinner (they can!). When we gather for the photo shoot, I'll find out how many want to do dinner and will give them the number then.]
