Surf’s up! Really – my World Maker Faire poster is up on Surf Avenue! When you visit Coney Island, you’ll find the Coney Island USA Sideshow, Museum & Bar just a couple of blocks walk from Deno’s Wonder Wheel.
Last year, the manager here was inviting and welcoming to me and let me put up a flier and some cards. He was the first person I ever ran into during Street Team who already knew what a Maker is. In just one word, this place is “Cool.” This year there is another manager, but he was really cool too and let me put up a flier in the window this time, and more cards up on their retro jukebox.
You have to see this place, there are murals, paintings, neon signs, retro-game consoles, mannequins… an actual side show operates here so you’ll see the acts just wander through. In the bar area they’re just more people chilling out.
