DC/MD/VA Meetup? January 26, 2007 1:03 PM   Subscribe

It is definitely the season for another DC/MD/VA meet-up since I was out of town for the last one. I might even give Terrapin a shout-out. I am thinking Dr. Dremos, Busboys and Poets, or perhaps somewhere in downtown DC. Let me know if anyone's available in February and we'll make something good happen. First round is on me, by the way.

I will again say I'm going to a mefi meetup and again i will probably not actually go...

I'm in like the proverbial "flynn", since I, too, missed the last one. At this time, except for the 3rd and the 8th of Feb, I'm pretty open.

If Godhatesmath is reading this, I'll extend the invitation personally on Tuesday.

Any idea what the weather is going to be like?

I'm unemployed, so I exist outside of time. But not space! I'm in DC, and would like to make this one, at last.

I'm not sure if I can come, but I might be persuaded through the use of extensive citations . . . .

Seriously, it has been a while since we've had a meetup. The venue choices sound good, it will just be a matter of availability.

This time I might be able to make it (because I actually looked at my calendar before posting, heh). I've got classes at Trinity Thursday and (every other) Friday evenings so I'm down. Plus, alcohol always drags me out.
(Although I have no idea where the 3 places mentioned in the OP are and I'm hoping that they're potentially near metro.)

cortex, if the last two weeks are any indication, somewhere between 15 and 70 °F. Pretty helpful huh.

Well, to honor Terrapin, we could meet at Atomic Billiards! I'll be heading there February 2 for a happy hour. Pool, reasonably priced drinks, darts, a great jukebox, near metro, near restaurants. Actually, that's the only Friday I'll be available all month.

Dremo's is great, too, of course (and also has pool, a jukebox, and nearby Metro and restaurants). If you make it a Tuesday, you'll find $1 beers (no telling which--could be PBR, could be Old Dominion) AND the Washington Psychotronic Film Society!

I'm available just about anytime, and this time I'll actually try and go!

Honest!

I'd definitely make an effort to make it.

But Parmanparman, if I'm reading this, you don't need to extend the invitation personally. I'm totally in. I was out of town last time, and missed what looked like a good time.

I'm in so long as it's a Friday or a Saturday. I've most likely got rehearsal on other nights.

Color me there, of a Friday or Saturday.

There's Franklin's in Hyattsville that has its own beers. Friday's they have a Firkin (cask brewed ale).

I guess that depends how well it goes?
posted by empath at 8:08 AM on January 28, 2007


Anyone want to call it?

Tuesday, January 30, I'll be at Dremo's for the Washington Psychotronic Film Society's mini film festival. As mentioned, I'll be at Atomic on Friday, Feb. 2nd. Anyone interested in those times/venues?
posted by MrMoonPie at 7:54 AM on January 29, 2007


I don't feel like I can call it, but I'll try hard to be there.
posted by OmieWise at 12:49 PM on January 29, 2007


Hmmmm. Atomic this Friday could potentially work out really well for me. Anyone else other than MoonPie and myself in?
posted by youcancallmeal at 3:30 PM on January 29, 2007


Can't make it this Friday. (*kicks class*)
posted by sperose at 4:29 PM on January 29, 2007


I'm down for Friday at Atomic. Can't do Saturday, though.

Anyone else able to do Friday at Atomic? That's where I'll be. Hopefully not under the weather.
posted by parmanparman at 8:22 AM on January 30, 2007


I'll be the 6'5" guy with the ponytail, likely with a small group. I expect to be there around 6:30. I'm trying, weakly, to get folks to move to Yenching Palace for a late dinner, since it's closing soon.
posted by MrMoonPie at 11:56 AM on January 30, 2007


Doh. I'd love to do it but this weekend is out for me.
posted by jare2003 at 4:34 AM on January 31, 2007


Atomic, Friday. I'm in. Maybe the significant other, as well.

Dinner-ish?

I'd also like to second Franklin's for some future meetup. Their webpage sucks, but their beer is fantastic.

posted by empath at 8:41 AM on February 1, 2007


I'll be there around 6:30.

I'm about 90% sure that I can make it tomorrow. Yay!
