It's official. I'm on the event board for The Glen Foerd House in Philadelphia, which means I now have access to a Gatsby mansion. Mission accomplished!
My first event at the mansion will be on August 1st, and it'll be a ragtime Roaring Twenties blowout called "Jazz Age on the Delaware." We're welcoming everyone with an interest in the 1920s to attend, with a special nod to the dieselpunks and steampunks in the crowd. There will be live music, cars & bikes from the 1920s - 1930s, professional dancers, food & cocktails, lawn games, vendors, photo stations, and pie... yes pie! Proceeds from the event are going towards restoring the Glen Foerd House so it can remain open to the public.
Even more exciting; this is in conjunction with my new company, Jazz Age Style, so you can use the promo code JAZZAGESTYLE15 for discount tickets. Jazz Age Style is the new marketing arm of Dieselpunks. In other words, it's a way for me to raise money for our community without pushing Dieselpunks into commercial territory.
Event if you can't make it, please spread the word. The more live events we can have, the stronger our group can be.
