A Little Bit of Fun and a Small Announcement...
It has been a good week at the Nautilus. We attended the Steampunk Symposium this last weekend and had a lot of fun. We saw some great costumes and had fun in our own. Mike looked like he belonged on an 1860s street! Since we had never taken the underground tour of old Sacramento, we took the opportunity to this weekend and it was very fun. It was relief from the day's heat, but Tonja discovered that a corset may not be the best outfit to wear during a walking tour.
While at the Symposium, we attended a presentation by Madam Askew and her cohorts on How To Start Your Own Tea Dueling Society. It seems that a lot of fun can be had from such simple weapons as cookies, tea and a sharp wit. So we decided that we will begin to have dueling events on Friday evenings from 7 pm to 9 pm. If you should like to test your wit and merit, just let "The Judge" or "Madame yet-to-be-named" know that you wish to duel with us or one of your party, and we will explain the rules. We hope to have enough people to eventually do entire brackets and start an official society. We had a couple of practice duels earlier this week and below, you can see a little bit of one of them. For the record, there were two rounds, and neither participant had a "clean nom", so further duels may need to be fought to soothe the honor of one of our brave contestants.
After experimenting with the Blue Butterfly tea, we decided it would be a nice addition to what we currently offer. We offer it both by itself and blended with lemon grass. As with all of our fine teas, we can serve it any way you like. And of course, you can take it home by the ounce. We look forward to seeing all of you become instant chemists by adding the little bit of lemon to watch the amazing color change..
Decorations are slowly being set up for the upcoming decorative holiday seasons. We are starting from scratch and moving slowly, but we are trying to create a fun and festive look, so bear with us!
An announcement: We have had some time to evaluate our hours and their effectiveness, and decided that we will be shifting our Saturday hours to offer more morning time and close a bit earlier unless we have an event that evening. The rest of the week will stay the same. So, beginning November 1, here are the new hours:
|Tuesday- Thursday:||10 am- 6 pm|
|Friday:||11am- 9 pm|
|Saturday:||9am- 7 pm|
