“Fixers in the Smog & Shadows.”

Less than two months remain until the time and space portals to the Chicago Steampunk Exposition open once more, tea tickets are selling rapidly, we’ve added more panel details, and we take another step deeper in our Steam & Sorcery mystery game . . .

These clues cards can be used in our immersive live action role-playing game (LARP) Steam & Sorcery; see below for details of the game. Click HERE for the previous clue cards.

Afternoon Tea

Both Saturday and Sunday afternoon of the Exposition, we offer you the opportunity to relax with cups of tea, delicious finger foods, and delightful conversation with some of our guests of honor.

Each tea party table is offered a choice of teas: English Breakfast Tea, Earl Grey, Assam, or Darjeeling. Food served  to accompany the tea consists of: British scone with jam and clotted cream, 2 cucumber sandwiches, 2 egg salad sandwiches, 2 mini eclairs, 2 lemon tartlets, cup of fruit, and 2 Chessmen cookies (for Tea Dueling).

Tickets are limited and tend to sell out quickly, especially for the tables sharing tea with one of our Guests of Honor, so don’t delay.
