I will be in Washington, DC on Friday, July 16th.  I will be in need of liquid refreshment and some degree of intoxication that evening.  I will be staying near the Convention Center, but can Metro.

What do you say?

Damn you, Andere, stealing my thunder.  I’ll be in the greater DC area the week of the 19th and will be open for a meetup, most likely Tuesday the 20th.

Any suggestions for meeting venues? I work on the other side of downtown but could easily make it over there whenever.

I have no ideas about a meeting venue.  I’m staying near the Convention Center at around 10th and K, but can Metro anywhere.

Thurs the 15th is also in play as a possibility, but I figured Friday was probably better.

OK, how about a time at least? There are some happy hours around to take advantage of if that’s a goal of ours, or we could aim for later if that better suits the attendees….

I’m fine for any time in the evening, preferably around 8 or so.

I just changed my reservation and I’m now staying near Dupont Circle.  Again, any location that’s Metro accessible works for me.

Brickskeller? That’s close to Dupont Circle. Time should be able to be flexible for me.

Later meetup (on Friday) and I may be able to head down after work.  8:00 would probably work for me.

That works for me. Might be tough to get a sufficiently sized table if we start as late as 8 though…anyone feel like starting at 7?

Obviously I wouldn’t be there at 7 (and being there is a 50/50 proposition at best anyway), but knowing you guys, you’d still be going strong at 8.

OK….how many people can we expect, so I know what size table to try to get once I am there tomorrow evening?

We have what looks like three for sure, four 50/50, five possible.

I’ll post something in the Lounge.

7 is a bit early for me, but I think I can be there shortly after that if not on time.  I will BTF mail AG, JH and LM my cell number.

I will try to get away, but like I said, my roommate of 3 years is moving, and we are having a going away dinner/drinks.  Not sure I will be able to get into DC

My apologies.

It’s cool.

Looking forward to seeing everyone who shows up.

Sorry, just saw this.  I won’t be able to make it but will be sorry to miss everyone.

Tonight’s looking like a probable “no” to me.  I have AG’s cell #, so I’ll text him if I am going to show up after all.

In case anyone was still following this about my part of the visit, I’m out tonight.  But I’m free tomorrow night if there are open schedules.
