as it stands it seems that there are a few of us willing to meet up on the 17th.

 

we would probably want to figure out who is interested and work up at least a basic plan (IE meeting area and time). this week or early next week and get the details down sometime in the middle or end of next week.

I work nights... and I work the 16th... so long as we don't decide something that's super intense I think I am good... I have to look at the budget and make sure I can afford to drive up ;) but it SHOULD work

Sorry, I was off at the beach yesterday, so I'm just now catching up on threads. It looks like brunch and picnic were the top choices. Generally brunch with nerds is a lot of fun, but can be the more expensive choice. But bottomless mimosas are great, as we've mentioned before.If we want to try and pull off the picnic idea, we need to establish a location and how we're handling food. It might be tough for people traveling into DC to bring something, so open to suggestions if we want to go that route. :)

Idea for 17th as discussed tonight: let's do an awesome brunch downtown (with bottomless mimosas as an option of course) and then go throw a disc (frisbee if you will) around on the mall!!! WizardTrip and I can both provide discs. It would be excellent. Thoughts?

Ok so where is this brunch/mimosas thingamajig goin down?! 

 

I will opt out of disc throwing as I'm a little bit uncoordinated with....things. But I'll be happy as a clam hanging out WHILE people play :D For those worried about food I know there are a couple places like Roti and Chop't that can be stopped by that do low carb/paleo friendly meals that can be picked up if they opt out of brunch but want to grab some noms while hanging out on the mall.

Also, just checked the weather and PM thunderstorms are predicted :( Do we have a plan B in case we get rained out? 

 

Silly Slates, frisbee is a rain or shine kinda deal!!!!  :victorious:

 

But if there are storms and we don't want to get soaked or struck by lightning, all of the awesome museums are around. We will figure something out! Any suggestions on where to brunch at? I know some of us just went to City Tap House yesterday, but they have a pretty solid brunch. Founding Farmers also isn't too far, but if we want to go there, we should make a reservation today. Old Ebbit Grill is also around there, or Woodward Table!

Parking can be pretty bad, but it depends on the time. There is usually free parking around the Mall on Sundays and there are plenty of garages, but they're expensive. If we're meeting up for brunch though and start it more on the breakfast side of time, it shouldn't be terrible.

good to go thanks.

 

I also HATE driving in the cities, the roads get a little hard to navigate at times- I usually park at a metro stop on the weekends (free parking!) and metro in. The round trip metro from Rockville is about 10 dollars so it's also cheaper than parking in downtown DC although it may take you a little longer to get there.

if it ran on the weekends i would just take the VRE, but since it doesnt run on the weekends ill just drive. Is there any decision on a place yet or shall we just kind of meet up some where and decide where to go which is in walking distance?

I'm down for another round of Cafe Saint Ex!! We had a fantastic time last time.

 

Any suggestions on time? The noon-1 slot seemed to work pretty well for us last time. We only waited... 45 minutes for a table?  :onthego:

I'm happy to show up early again to get our names on the list. And miss Jenn, do you want to join us for hanging out/frisbee on the mall?

 

And let me see if I have an accurate count (as I proved at the Founding Farmers meetup - I'm not so great at the counting thing)

Any other significant others attending and/or buddies? Also, Ryoko I think was a no? Feel free to correct me. :)
