This weekend will appear to prove quite busy, as a good number of events will be taking place in the Steamlands of SL. Starting the weekend off, will be VR Style's Steampunk Weapons Tournament, which will take place over the duration of the weekend. Afraid I don't have all the details of it as of this writing, but if one wishes to learn more, do visit their main location, on Pavo Isle.
Next, the Marzipan Tea House will celebrate its 2nd birthday on Saturday, August 22nd, from 4 to 5:30 pm, SLT. As the lovely Miss Elspeth Woolley, the proprietress of the Tea House details...
You are warmly invited to join the festivities for a rather special evening ball! Take your turn at the pinata for delicious candy, and share our delicious birthday cake! Champagne, Macallan and Guinness will flow, along with tea, of course. Noted tarot reader, Madam Kitsuko Pelazzi, will give free readings to guests in a private corner of the ballroom, while Radio Riel sets us to dancing with its usual incomparable music.
Whether you've been our guest before or you choose to come celebrate with us for the first time, you are welcome ... and you will not feel alone because there is always friendly company at a Marzipan Teahouse event. :)

Followed by what has become one of the best known events in the SL Steamlands, the Piermont Landing presents "The Orient Express Formal Ball", on Saturday, the 22nd of August, from 6 to 9 pm, SLT. Recalling the glamour and formality of the classic Orient Express, the themed competition revolves around locomotives, or as the charming Miss Breezy Carver has prizes for the top three trains, to be judged by the Mayor of New Babbage, Mr. Tenk. To learn more about the ball, please turn to the New Babbage Ning, at: http://newbabbage.ning.com/events/the-orient-express-formal-ball, and at her own blog, at: http://seabreezegal.blogspot.com/2009/08/piermont-landing-presents.html
Next, the re-invented Armada will host its "Wanderlust" event in a new location on Sunday, the 23rd of August, from 12 to 2 pm, SLT, or as described by the debonair Miss Roswenthe Aluveaux...
There are a few changes happening to Wanderlust as we transition to our new sim design. First, we will be moving Wanderlust to the carnival, and the SLURL is below. The carnival is in the SE corner of the sim. We have a floating dance platform hanging above the carnival.
Next, I have decided that we should start having costume contests. Prizes will be $500L each week (but others can add to that prize money if they so choose).
In addition, I have set up a booth so that if you are a builder or a designer, and you make something especially for the contest, you can box it up and set it in our kiosk to sell for one week. You set the price, throw whatever landmarks in it, and it's your prim. We will return it to you the next week after the next contest. You are free to put it in your shop or on XStreet, too, as it's your item. We are just offering a prim space to sell it for one week. Anyone who has made something, so long as it's your work, is free to set it down even if you didn't win the contest. The contest winner still receives the prize money, of course.
