Weekend Recommendations – November 6th, 2014

The BIG event this weekend is the fifth annual Teslacon in Madison, Wisconsin, with its immersive steampunk theme this year being “Journey to the Center of the Earth.” Many members of the Pandora Society will be there in full force to celebrate the best “immersive” convention that Steampunk has to offer. Since its inception, the International Steampunk Symposium has had a very close relationship with Teslacon.
