This Saturday (April 16) is Obscura Day 2016. Billed as a day to "celebrate the world's most obscure and awe inspiring places," there will be events taking place all around the world (although, mostly in the US, with some in Europe).

Events include Brigit's Celtic Garden in Roscahill, Ireland, Saturday Morning Pinball and Cartoons in Brooklyn, USA, the Olympic Village Scavenger Hunt in Beijing, China, and many, many more.

I wish there was something happening in my town, but the only thing I could think of would be the Nottingham Castle Cave Tour, but even that isn't that exciting, honestly. And it's not anything you can't do any other day.

The headline for the post really should be "...But you probably haven't heard of it."

Feeling slightly foolish for never investigating the back of the Sunshine Laundromat and seeing the other machines plus the bar.

I'm excited for the Elsewhere Philatelic Society's Mail Carrier Training adventure. A friend of mine is leading a ghost sign tour.

Good to see Glasgow's Necropolis there. Whenever we have overseas visitors, we take them there and they are always amazed.

It's awesome that something like this exists. Gadsby's Tavern Museum in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia is awesome; not so much for the museum but because Old Town Alexandria is a great place to visit.

I just might have to check out the Tom of Finland House after walking past it for so many years.
