I was just thinking that this would be nice. I'd be in.

Me, too, on both counts that yccma mentions.

If it's DC, I'd probably make it.

Oh please!

I'll be in town in two weeks or so! Maybe the meetup could happen in the doldrums between Christmas and New Years?

Count me in for DC, although I won't be in town for a week or so starting the 27th. (Don't let my schedule hamper any plans, though! I won't cry if it doesn't work out, I promise.)

I'd be totally down with a Baltimore meet-up, and could do a DC meet-up during the day in January.

I guess I should add that I leave for Mexico on Jan. 7, so between Christmas and New Year's is best for me.

I prefer DC, but either way between Christmas and New Years works for me.

I would be down with a DC meetup, and the week between Christmas and New Years tentatively works for me (pretty much works except for Monday and Friday).

Damn, I was just gonna suggest Friday too. Saturday, then, the 30th?

Seems like DC has a slight edge in the 'ayes' department. Perhaps another Silver Spring jaunt to make it a little easier for the Charm City folks? There's been one at Galaxy Billiards before. (I won't be so swedish as to suggest Columbia.)

I likely won't be able to make it the 30th, but I suppose I don't have to be at every meetup. Galaxy Billiards worked pretty well before, if I remember correctly.

I'm in.

I'm up for Silver Spring, too.

Make it the 26th, and I can come.

Silver Spring on the 30th works for me.

If the husband is available to babysit our new addition I might be able to come. It would be nice to meet everyone.

Aww, he's cute. You definately deserve a night off.

I'm in for Galaxy on either date, and probably January, too.
posted by mojohand at 3:14 PM on December 7, 2006


Hmm.
The 28th or 29th?
Diggity I like Baltimore. 28th? Or Silver Spring as a compromise. Or roll it till January, just after New Years, maybe in Bethesda? Suggestions welcome, use my email. Location and other preferences welcome!

I'm up for anything and i swear to god i'll actually go to this one.

as an aside, I will likely be DJing at Club Avenue in DC on NYE for those of you that like 'rave-y' music and want to come out -- particularly for those of you that are looking for something to do late-- it goes till 4am or possibly later.
posted by empath at 5:09 PM on December 7, 2006


OK, so NYE is a lock. How about the other dates as I'm all about planning?
posted by nj_subgenius at 6:34 PM on December 7, 2006


I'm down. (First meetup ever, if I can make it.)

If it's in DC, can it be within walking distance to a Metro stop? Pretty please?
posted by sperose at 7:56 PM on December 7, 2006


I vote for 28th, 29th or anydate earlier than the 30th.
posted by necessitas at 8:03 PM on December 7, 2006


I'll drop my name in the hat for a Baltimore meetup; preferably before 12/16 (probably a little unrealistic).
posted by scalespace at 8:20 PM on December 7, 2006


I could do the 29th in Silver Spring. Actually that would work better for me than the 30th.
posted by Nathanial Hörnblowér at 8:57 PM on December 7, 2006


I will try to make the DC/Silver Spring meetup despite my fear of going places where I don't know anyone all by myself.
posted by echo0720 at 9:38 PM on December 7, 2006


If we do Silver Spring, I can provide rides from Charm City for folks if they want. The late December dates seem good to me.
posted by OmieWise at 5:09 AM on December 8, 2006


May I suggest the 29th in Silver Spring at Galaxy Billiards?
It's about a quarter mile from the Silver Spring metro.
This being my first meetup and all, is 7 PM too early or is 8 PM better?
posted by nj_subgenius at 7:18 AM on December 8, 2006


I'll try and make it. It would be nice to collect that beer OmieWise owes me before the statute of limitations expires.
posted by exogenous at 7:52 AM on December 8, 2006


But echo0720, you already know all of us!

7:00 is best, but that's just me...
posted by Nathanial Hörnblowér at 8:39 AM on December 8, 2006


Sadly, on the 29th I'll be on a plane to the UK with my wonderful girlfriend, but you all go ahead, and lets try to do this more often!
posted by Inkoate at 8:48 AM on December 8, 2006


Ooh, count me in. It would need to be before the 28th, though.
