This event has no parking lot of its own. Please use common sense when parking on the street and do not block anyone's drive way. Park as far away from the venue as you feel comfortable to accommodate those who are less able to do so. We thank you in advance.

If you choose to stay for the 12:00 PM brown bag steampunk media discussion, you may bring a brown bag lunch. There is no food available in walking distance from the venue.
