16 weeks left to go the Chicago Steampunk Exposition . . . and this week we brought you details and the menus for the Burnham Banquet and the British Banquet. Also, we gave some clues toward the Mystery Detective Game that will lead up to the opening of the Exposition, and be running throughout the weekend of the convention.
