Tonight's dinner at the Jolly Boy Restaurant was well attended by Steampunks local and distant. Though a group of 10 - 12 was expected, the actual headcount was 18 persons, a record for Southern California. Drinks were had, dinner was eaten, world domination plans laid, a good time had by all. In attendance were*; Hope Barton, Captain Stockings, Penny Dreadful, Gabriel, Professor Fossilbottom, Gadg3t, The Brothers Greyshade, Fraulein Flieger, Mr. J. S. Greyshade, Lady Jane, Cindy P. and Jerry, S. Sprocket, Mr. & Mrs. Klockwork Kobbler, Jimmy Diggs, with Anachronist presiding. Due to the fact that Captain Stockings will be leaving shortly for university, it has been decided that our next event should take place on Saturday, August 16th. It will be a trip to visit The Berkeley, an 1898 steam-powered ferryboat, with an accompanying picnic on the nearby lawn.
