I've written here before about the wonder that is Neverwas Haul and The Shipyard Studios, so you can imagine my joy a few weeks ago when I returned there for another evening of marvels. Of all the new inventions on display that night, the most impressive was the robotic bartender brainchild of Benjamin Cowden. Christened "The Corpse Reviver," Benjamin's machine makes a cocktail of the same name. We all know not to mix drinking with operating heavy machinery, but the combination has rarely been this fun.
As always, the people at The Shipyard were creative, brilliant, and friendly. Nearly everyone was dressed in turn-of-the-century costumes, and they appeared to be having the time of their lives sharing their work and ideas. Even though I left my Victorian finery in the closet that night, I still felt right at home among the dazzling inventions and their creators.
