       The SCA only goes to 1599, [Klaatu].

       <channels Yakov> In soviet Russia... Party celebrates you.   

       //The SCA only goes to 1599// So, the only difference with this idea is that it covers an era 100 years later and, it's based in Russia? Then what? Party like it's 1776 in Lithuania?   

       I fail to see a new idea other than the time frame and location. [-]

       sca.org describes time periods. castlerestaurant.com gives parties for a particular time and place. Neither are a party planning service that lets you pick any time and place.

EDIT: castle restaurant does not seem to match the period in any way but the general theme of the place. Clothing, transportation, food is all current era.

       //Stalingrad, January 1943//   

       Costs would be very low. You could serve the customers to each other.
