  1. Thank you for the plug! It promises to be a wonderful event. We are also having a Saturday evening social at the Brooklyn steampunk bar The Way Station. Mark Donnelly will present on Bartitsu and we’ll have a raffle, costume contest, and Sherlockian-themed cocktails. Visit our Web site for more information.
