News From The Pandora Society

Charlie here with the update this week.  Ginny Tonic is off this evening planning a very interesting cocktail mix for this weekend’s party fun (and making a wonderful chili) so I’ve stepped in to share all the news from around the growing world that is the Pandora Society. If you are looking for...

What’s New from the Pandora Society?

  We thought we would take a moment on Fridays to share what’s been going on the Pandora Family this week. As you may know, The Charlie Tonic Hour is a Pandora Production. We are just one part of the events production company that is putting on the Steampunk Symposium, Pandoracon and Queen City...

Bockfest Cincinnati: Goats, Beer and More Beer

  What do goats, lent, spring and beer have to do with Cincinnati? A lot apparently. Cincinnati has a long and glorious tradition of brewing and drinking beer. In the late nineteenth century Cincinnatians drank more beer per capita than any other city in the country, by a measure of more than 2:1....

How to Host a Happy Hour and Save Your Sanity

As you will hear in Episode Nine of The Charlie Tonic Hour, this year I’ve been spending my Thursdays with a remarkable group of friends for “Happy Hour.” Like traditional happy hours, our gathering is centered around having a few drinks and complaining about work. We save money by meeting at one of the...

Mardi Gras Magic Comes to Cincinnati

The Voodoo Carnival 2012 Where can I start when describing this event? The wonderful performers? The amazing costumes? The beautiful facility? The incredible crowd? The near constant flirtation? I think that all of these things were intrinsic to making it a night to remember so I will have to go through all...

Weekend Wrap Up: Blogging, Beer and a Go-Go Emergency

I’ve been out in public in a corset and bustle. I’ve danced in public with my underwear showing. I have publicly declared myself a romance aficionado and re-named myself after a cocktail that I don’t even drink. But this weekend marked a new step for me. This weekend I publicly declared myself a blogger....

Time for the Steampunk Salon

Ahh, it’s that time of the year again. That time when steampunks gather in Cincinnati with thoughts of love, lust, and interesting steam-powered devices on their mind. Actually we are really just doing our typical salon but since it’s February the Hallmark police require that we eroticize...

Gay Bingo with The Cabaret in Cincinnati

On Episode Five I told Charlie about the fun and fabulous night I had at Gay Bingo with The Cabaret here in Cincinnati. My Thursday night happy hour group decided to meet there for two reasons. One: the show that night was raising money for Walnut Hills Instrumentalists Parents (W.H.I.P.) and  Two: because...

Pandoracon: Leave Your Real World Far Behind!

On Episode Four this week Charlie talked about a website he was building for Pandora Promotions latest big venture, a weekend long science fiction convention in Cincinnati Ohio, Pandoracon. The website is great and I encourage you to check it out but I wanted to talk a little bit about why Pandoracon is...

Always, Patsy Cline

It is unnecessarily dramatic for me to point out that I was the first person in my family to go to college. It would be exaggeration to say that by moving to the city and getting involved in bizarre things like steampunk, liberal activism and imported beer I’ve created a gap between my family and...

How Many Steampunks Can You Fit into a Bathtub? The Weekend in Review

The January salon of the League of Cincinnati Steampunks was one for the record books. Forty people filled three rooms at Arnold’s in Cincinnati Ohio on the evening of January 7th, the largest number we’d ever had. Everyone had recovered enough from New Year’s and was once again ready to get into corsets...

The December Salon of The League of Cincinnati Steampunks

I’ve always loved the idea of a salon in the historical sense of a regular social gathering of eminent people at the house of a woman prominent in high society. Although I can’t claim to be the host, or even the organizer, of our local Steampunk salons I like to think that I can count myself among the...
