I am going to be near Washington DC for ... other reasons June 21-26. I am interested in a meetup.

Oh man, that would be completely rad but I am going to be thick into my whole moving to Canada thing. Y'all have fun.

I'll be around, but booked on Sunday, the 24th. I'm usually up for a meetup.

I might be playing a show in/near DC on Saturday 6/23, but it's yet to be confirmed.

I will be there for ALA. Would attend meet-up.

I knew if I procrastinated long enough, someone else would suggest this.

I'm going (first time!), and I'd love a meetup.

A convention of librarians? Wow. How tempting does that sound?
posted by Dave Faris at 11:58 AM on May 29, 2007

I too will be in/near Washington, DC June 21-26 for other reasons (I live here) and would be interested in said meet-up.
posted by Pollomacho at 12:00 PM on May 29, 2007

I'll be around for most of the week and I'm staying near the convention center.

Um, I know I posted this but ... would someone more familiar with Washington than I am suggest venues &etc.? I've only been there once or twice.
posted by initapplette at 12:13 PM on May 29, 2007

I'll be there conferencing from the 22nd to the 24th. Would totally attend a meetup.
posted by Carol O at 12:20 PM on May 29, 2007

I'll be around, and I'll be willing to roll mob deep with the DCites if we decide to actually fight the out of town librarians (but only if JCW fights for our side). If we can't get a rumble going, I guess I'd be interested in a meetup.
posted by OmieWise at 12:38 PM on May 29, 2007

We could use the out of town librarians' help around here, please no fighting!!

Oh man, some pacifist always has to ruin it for the rest of us.
posted by OmieWise at 1:07 PM on May 29, 2007

Meetup or rumble, I'm game.

One of the Metro-accessible places from that AskMe, perhaps?
posted by zennie at 1:09 PM on May 29, 2007

Oh, I think I could join in your reindeer librarian games. If the meetup falls mid-week it would be harder for onlyconnect to attend, but I could probably swing it. I might even be able to wear my new Metafilter shirt as a very bright rallying point. Hell, I might even wash it before wearing it again. Just for you folks, of course.
posted by NortonDC at 1:53 PM on May 29, 2007

I wish! My friends are getting married in Brooklyn the exact same day and time I was going to be on a panel (blah blah blah blogs, not really something I'm totally dying about missing) but now I'm not sure if I'm going to ALA at all. I'll keep an eye on this thread and let you know if my plans change.
posted by jessamyn (staff) at 2:05 PM on May 29, 2007

I was going to suggest exactly this, until Jessamyn told me she wasn't going to be doing the panel after all. Yes, I would love to do a meetup. I would prefer if it didn't conflict with the premiere of "Hollywood Librarian", but other than that, I'm up for whatever.
posted by Horace Rumpole at 3:11 PM on May 29, 2007


I'll be in DC from the 17th to the 25th, I'll totally be all upons this meetup. Hopefully my sister can come too, she is clamoring to go to one.

The Hollywood Librarian premiere is Friday night (June 22) at 8 pm.

Someday I'll actually make it to a DC meetup....
posted by empath at 9:31 PM on May 29, 2007

I'd be in for this one. There's no greyhound adoption reunion picnic slated for that weekend, so it's clear for me. As for venues, I'd be interested to know how the picnic worked out - it'd be interesting to try a BBQ or something similar. Otherwise, there's plenty of non-smoky semi-loud bars. They've all been suggested before.

Do we agree on Saturday, June 23? Time and venue suggestions?
posted by MrMoonPie at 5:14 AM on May 30, 2007

If this thread is a reliable indication, we're looking at maybe 15-20 people. The first place that occurs to me is Timberlake's in Dupont Circle.
posted by zennie at 9:50 AM on May 30, 2007

My friends are going to be wondering where I am, but I will be at the next MeFi gathering! Timberlakes is a good choice, very near the metro and near other places if a crawl is in order.

One question: Who, but who, is bringing the kool-aid pickles?
posted by parmanparman at 10:12 AM on May 30, 2007

No pickles from me--I off-loaded mine Sunday.
posted by MrMoonPie at 10:37 AM on May 30, 2007

I think I can make it on Saturday.

Unfortunately due to TSA rules I can't bring pickles.
posted by exceptinsects at 6:03 PM on May 30, 2007

Unfortunately due to TSA rules I can't bring pickles.

So long as they are dry or in three ounce (or smaller) containers placed within a clear quart-sized (or smaller) zip-top plastic baggies, you'll be fine.
posted by Pollomacho at 6:37 AM on May 31, 2007

Not sure we can make it, but I had to come in here and attest that MrMoonPie's pickles have left the building.

oh the strange things I write on Metafilter.
posted by onlyconnect at 11:44 AM on May 31, 2007

I didn't know those things were pickled in Elvis! I woulda eaten more, maybe with some peanut butter.
posted by and hosted from Uranus at 11:54 AM on May 31, 2007

Any other suggestions for a venue? No? Timberlake's then?

Still dreaming of kool-aid pickles? Custard gherkins? Relish jellies? :)

First meet-up for me! And with The Librarians!
posted by dsaelf at 2:56 PM on June 3, 2007

Have we officially decided on a place/time? I am really excited for my first meetup and want to make sure I can fit it in admidst conference activities.
posted by leesh at 5:38 AM on June 4, 2007

I gather that we have as far as the date, and I've added it to the meetup calendar to make it official. I don't think we've settled on a time yet, but I'll get the ball rolling by suggesting 8:00 (but I'm flexible). I'll be there in my new blue t-shirt (which I very much like, despite all the grousing on other threads).
posted by Horace Rumpole at 6:55 AM on June 4, 2007

8pm sounds good to me.

I checked, and Timberlake's would be able to accommodate us that day, if we like. Still open to other suggestions.

If the pickles are out, maybe we can set up to have some MeFi music.
posted by zennie at 7:54 AM on June 4, 2007

But the 23rd is the Thievery Corp/18th St. Lounge label music festival at Merriweather! Do not underestimate the ire you're causing in the international groove contingent!
posted by cowbellemoo at 12:46 PM on June 4, 2007

The 18th Street Lounge is IN dc, you know :) You can go there any time.
posted by empath at 8:37 PM on June 4, 2007

I thought the whole schtick with the international groove contingent is that they're totally chill. No?
posted by OmieWise at 5:26 AM on June 5, 2007

The 18th St Lounge has a very strict chichi dress code, and doesn't like to let in men who aren't accompanying women.
posted by zennie at 7:37 AM on June 5, 2007

8:00 at Timberlake's on the 23rd is OK, though I'd prefer to get rolling a bit earlier, say, at 6:00, before the crowds get big and the music gets loud. I've not been to Timberlake's, but that's usually the drill at area bars.
posted by MrMoonPie at 7:49 AM on June 5, 2007

MMP, I'd show earlier, but, then, you know, I'm usually a bit later than I say I'll show. I could commit to 7pm so you ain't drinkin' alone. (Although mMP will probably be coming, so you're covered anyway.)
posted by OmieWise at 8:53 AM on June 5, 2007

I'll be there, if'n y'all want me. I'm only attending a few ALA things, but we're hosting some sort of official ALA event on Friday at the Museum, and you are all welcome to stop by any time for a tour of our library facilities.
posted by arco at 2:23 PM on June 5, 2007

ya know, the national BBQ competition is held on the 23rd and 24th, turning Pennsylvania ave into a big outdoor picnic. i don't know how that will mesh with the ALA schedule (and there is a ticket price for the BBQ festival), but that could offer a pretty large stomping ground.
posted by garfy3 at 2:39 PM on June 5, 2007

Oh, that national BBQ thing was crap when I went to it a few years back. Don't waste your time. But thanks for the heads up about the Thievery Corp show! If any librarians want to head out to that, I'm game. (I also may have an extra ticket to the Wilco show on the 21st...)
posted by arco at 2:49 PM on June 5, 2007

The national BBQ thing is held in the mornin' and is over by 8 so you all are safe.
posted by doctorschlock at 10:56 AM on June 6, 2007

The 18th Street Lounge is IN dc, you know :) You can go there any time.

It's not really a live-act venue, just DJs, I am to understand.

I thought the whole schtick with the international groove contingent is that they're totally chill. No?

Yes! Half-shut eyelids and bobbing heads of rage!

Have fun without me ;-(
posted by cowbellemoo at 1:15 PM on June 6, 2007

I will be at ALA for part of the time. As always, I'll do my darndest to make it to the meetup.
posted by Alt F4 at 12:17 PM on June 7, 2007

This tenderfoot would certainly be interested.
posted by ntartifex at 6:08 AM on June 9, 2007

If I can count, 22 people piped up and said they're interested. Cool. :)

If anyone wants to recommend one of the "not to be missed" places for this, please do. I would if I could, but my experience with them is limiting.
posted by zennie at 10:52 AM on June 9, 2007

Lauriol Plaza is one of the better places for big groups to meet. In the downtown/Convention Center area, there are several excellent restaurants (including Zaytinya, which is right across from the DC Public library; I can regale you with stories of my 18 months there, what I call "my dark period"), but I'm not sure how many are well-suited to a big group. I'll look into it, but I'm sure someone else would have better suggestions that I would.
posted by arco at 2:10 PM on June 10, 2007

The National Bbq Festival is going on down Pennsylvania Avenue that weekend. Just sayin'.
posted by Pollomacho at 5:21 AM on June 11, 2007

That would be this festival? [warning: music]

I have to agree with arco, unfortunately. 'Sides, we need a fixed spot because we seem to have people showing up at slightly different times in the evening.
posted by zennie at 6:24 AM on June 11, 2007

I'm telling you, the BBQ thing is AWFUL! Why don't you people believe me??!? ;-)

Yeah, a fixed place to meet would be best. If we don't go with a restaurant, how about the Brickskeller? (Or would that be too far from the Conv. Center for most people to find?) Or RFD (near the convention center, but probably more crowded)? RFD actually has decent food, too, if we wanted to set up a dinnertime meeting and leave it open-ended for people who would come later.
posted by arco at 6:54 AM on June 11, 2007

Hey, has anyone heard anything about the the National Bbq Festival?

It looks like Timberlake's, RFD, or Brickskellar would be good bets, since it'll be a somewhat amorphous group without a firm meeting time. The restaurants listed in the other thread probably wouldn't work very well, I guess.

On the other hand, this could be done in stages. A sub-group could meet at a restaurant around 6, then wander over to where everyone else is meeting afterwards. Any interest in that? Any good combinations to suggest?
posted by MrMoonPie at 9:03 AM on June 11, 2007

Brickskellar was suggested in the other thread; I just have no experience with it. It's near Dupont Circle, so it wouldn't be more than 10-15 minutes on the train from the Convention Center.

There are lots of options if we maybe go in a "dinner" stage of smaller groups and a "drinks" stage to gather up somewheres...?
posted by zennie at 9:38 AM on June 11, 2007

(People could still do dinner at the "drinks" place, of course.)
posted by zennie at 9:52 AM on June 11, 2007

The Brickskeller is great, especially if you're a beer lover. If we decide to meet there, let's be sure to specify upstairs or downstairs (which has a nice and quieter backroom for meetups like this). Let's not recreate the Great FP Pileup Fiasco of '05, where two separate but equal get togethers occurred simultaneously on different floors, each without knowledge of the other.
posted by arco at 1:47 PM on June 11, 2007

Not to sound like a wuss, but if we do meet somewhere that requires taking the Metro, would one of the other ALAers be willing to meet me at the convention center and ride over with me? I almost always end up going the wrong direction/otherwise getting lost on Metros and don't want to miss the meetup!
posted by leesh at 4:45 AM on June 12, 2007

leesh - I'm not sure what time I'll be wrapping up (I'll be exhibiting at the W.W. Norton booth), but I'll ride over with you (and whoever) if the timing works out.
posted by Alt F4 at 7:52 AM on June 12, 2007

Thanks! I really appreciate it.
posted by leesh at 12:42 PM on June 12, 2007

leesh, I'm also in for riding over with you if timing works out.

The downstairs of the Brickskeller sounds good (the backroom). Do they serve dinner also, or would we need to move on for that?
posted by initapplette at 3:36 PM on June 12, 2007

Or Timberlake's.
posted by initapplette at 3:39 PM on June 12, 2007

arco, is the Brickskeller "backroom" you speak of just a room that happens to be quiet, or is it the kind we'd need to rent?

Timberlake's is a generic bar with diner-style food that's decent but not special. I don't know about Brickskeller's quality, but you can see their menu here. Brickskeller's selling point is the beer.
posted by zennie at 4:19 PM on June 12, 2007

Brickskeller has relatively decent food, yes--last time I was there I had a fine, fine Montecristo. The backroom is just the room in the back, really; I suppose it could be rented, but I've been there with groups of folks and got space there with no problem. The beer list is amazing (though one should consider backups--they don't have everything in stock) and the jukebox is rockin'.

Personally, I think it's a grand plan to meet there at 8:00. Anyone who wants to do dinner beforehand can do something in the Dupont Circle area then walk down, anyone who arrives late can get food there.

Malaysia Kopitiam at 6:00? Outdoor Greek? Really-good-but-expensive Sushi? Really-close-to-Brickskeller sushi? Amazingly-fantastic-dirt-cheap-but-no-dining-room empanadas? I will commit to any of these (and just about any other option).
posted by MrMoonPie at 7:50 PM on June 12, 2007

Brickskeller's selling point is the beer.

I strongly endorse the concept of beer.
posted by Horace Rumpole at 8:14 AM on June 13, 2007

Another vote for the Brickskeller. Even were I a foodie, I'd think the fantastic beer would make up for the mediocre pub-food. Thankfully, I'm not a foodie, and I love mediocre pub food. Also, I would definitely be down for some of Julia's Empanadas.
posted by god hates math at 8:31 AM on June 13, 2007

I like the sound of Empanadas, and I'm staying in Dupont circle so it would be convenient as well.
posted by exceptinsects at 9:43 AM on June 13, 2007

OK, looks like one party for Julia's. How do you get to Julia's from the Metro?

I might like to try that really-close-to-Brickskeller sushi place, if anyone else is interested.
posted by zennie at 10:53 AM on June 13, 2007

Aiight... let's whittle out an itinerary so as to avoid having Mefites wandering alone in the streets of DC.

Metafilter-ALA-DC Meetup: The Brickskeller ~ 8pm. We'll probably be downstairs, in the back room.
The Brickskeller
1523 22nd St NW, Washington, DC 20037

Metro Directions
Exit the Dupont Circle Red Line metro stop at Q St., veer left off the escalator and walk two blocks down Q St. Cross Mass Ave and veer left onto 22nd St. We are a half block down the road on the left, directly across the street from the church between P and Q St.

Dinner options:
a) 6-8 pm - Anyone who wants to eat at The Brickskeller, head there.

b) 6-6:30 pm - Empanadas! Meet at Julia's Empanadas, travel together to Brickskeller? (Hash out any futher modifications/details below.)

c) 6-7:30 pm - If anyone wants to do sushi, email me and we'll make arrangements (address in my profile).
Sound OK?
posted by zennie at 12:29 PM on June 13, 2007

Actually, since Julia's doesn't seem to be much of a linger-y place, how about we meet there at seven?
That would give conference-goers time to drop off their huge piles of free books and freshen up at the hotel.
posted by exceptinsects at 8:34 PM on June 13, 2007

time to drop off their huge piles of free books

exceptinsects, you and I may just be twins who were separated at birth.

definitely maybe coming
posted by anotherpanacea at 6:59 AM on June 14, 2007

7:00 at Julia's would leave plenty of time to eat, wander around a bit, then head down to Brickskeller, no problem. Let's do it!

I'll meet folks at Julia's, and try to get us all to the bar at 8:00. Shoot me an email, and I'll give you my cell number for coordination purposes. I'm pretty easy to pick out in a crowd--6'5", pony-tailed white guy.

Oh, and I used Google's My Maps to create a map of the various sites. First time I've used it, so lemme know if the placemarks don't work right.
posted by MrMoonPie at 9:27 AM on June 14, 2007 [1 favorite]

So, these placemarks, they vibrate?

I don't see them on your map.
posted by arco at 9:36 AM on June 14, 2007

Well, crap. How about now?
posted by MrMoonPie at 10:28 AM on June 14, 2007

Oh look! Placemarks!

Looks fine now, thanks for putting it together.
posted by arco at 11:12 AM on June 14, 2007

It's been brought to my attention that some of you librarians might be interested in a tour of my workplace. Since it'd be an unofficial tour, and during working hours, it'll need to be a small, non-raucous group, but lemme know if you'll like to see some of the behind-the-scenes stuff. Email is in my profile.
posted by MrMoonPie at 12:21 PM on June 14, 2007

I would love a tour, MrMoonPie, but seeing as I work one mile down the road I'll defer to the out-of-towners and maybe we can set something up later.

I'm also up for giving quick tours of the Holocaust Museum library in case anyone is interested. Also, if you need tickets for the Museum, drop me a message.
posted by arco at 12:48 PM on June 14, 2007

Oh man, I'd love a tour of LOC, too. But as arco said...

Thanks for putting together that map, MrMoonPie. I'd had an entirely wrong idea of where Julia's was!
posted by zennie at 2:25 PM on June 14, 2007

Well, there are several Julia's, so you might have been correct.

I can definitely do tours for local folks, too, but I like to spread them out--the reading room folks don't really like to have throngs of tourists walking through, so I try to give them a lot of time to recover between my visits.
posted by MrMoonPie at 2:33 PM on June 14, 2007

Awesome. Is there any way to add the placemarks from your map to one of my maps? I can't find anything about that in the vast mire of Google Help.

It's possible, blasdelf, since it's a restauranty kind of place. Might be worth calling them, though.

posted by blasdelf at 12:45 PM on June 20, 2007

Do we, in fact, have folks confirmed for Julia's at 7:00? I'll be there, if so. The emapanadas totally rock, but I don't want to be feelin' lonely. Like before. (damn, I'm consistent, at least.)
posted by MrMoonPie at 8:44 PM on June 21, 2007

I'm in for Brickskeller around 7:30. Do I have to wear pants to get in?
posted by and hosted from Uranus at 6:50 AM on June 22, 2007

I'll definitely be at the Brickskeller, but I'm not sure what time I'll get there. Someone should post a "Mathowie has a posse" sign so we'll know where to look. (I'll recognize MrMoonPie, but I don't know anyone else.)

I may be at Julia's, too, depending on where I am at 7:00.
posted by arco at 8:05 AM on June 22, 2007

I'm planning on hitting Julia's, MMP, so unless my wife changes my plans for me, it'll be at least two of us.

As for pants, you might have to wear them to get in, but I'm doubting there's any signs that say you can't take them off under the table...

I'd also like to make a point of encouraging any DC-area members who have probably read this thread but have yet to comment (I'm looking at you, Exogenous and Stratastar) to come out and join us. Beer is good. Community is good. It'll be fun times.
posted by god hates math at 9:45 AM on June 22, 2007

There are a few of us planning on meeting at 6 at the Metro stop in the convention center--I don't know what we're doing till 7, but any other ALAers are welcome to join us! Just send me an email if you want more details.

I'm aiming to be at the Brickskeller around 8 or a little after. Or, if I happen to be at the Conv. Center at 6, I might try to meet up with the Alt F4 crowd. Will someone in that group have a sign or something to help us find each other?
posted by arco at 3:58 AM on June 23, 2007

I'll meet the ALA crowd at the Conv. Center at 6 — are you planning on meeting at the top of the escalator that's underneath a corner of the building? I can print out a sign and stand there…
posted by blasdelf at 7:50 AM on June 23, 2007

I just talked with Alt F4 and the plan is to meet at 6 at the top of the Metro escalators in the Convention Center. blasdelf, if you'd print out a sign, that would be great!
posted by initapplette at 8:39 AM on June 23, 2007

frecklefaerie, Brickskeller at 8, Julia's at 7. blasdelf and I know each other irl, so we'll be able to link up the two groups easily.

Suparnova and I weren't allowed into The Brickskeller, so we walked around with Alt-F4 for a bit — and ran into a rival breakdancing group on the other side of Dupont Circle! (the group ran into a group of hustler b-boys in the center of the circle on our way there).

This other group was more just popping-and-locking, and looked to be the cast of a Ghostwriter-style PBS show ten years later — one-of-each multiculturalism, including a guy with a prosthetic leg, two asian boys, and a ballet-trained white girl. It was ridiculous, I think one of their moms was videotaping them.

Photos are now up. Please annotate away, as I am so awful with names I'm not even going to attempt to label any of them.

And I'm really, really sorry the coldchef shoutout didn't turn out better. Oh, well. I think the point comes across.

Regardless, thanks all! It was a blast. And we need to plan the Silver Spring meetup at the Piratz Tavern.

Great pictures, arco!

Egad, arco, I think that's the worst picture I've ever had taken of me. I look better in my driver's license photo! FYI everybody not at the meetup: I don't usually look like I've just received a severe beating.

Thanks for posting the pictures anyway, and it was great to meet you and everyone else there.

Also, I'd like to take this opportunity to apologize to Leesh if you're the person I met on Monday at the Folger and was vague to because I couldn't figure out until afterwards where I knew you from. My brain is a constant source of disappointment to me when called upon to remember people I've met fewer than about 5 times. I'd like to further apologize to whoever I actually snubbed if I'm even more confused than I think and that wasn't actually Leesh. More apologies to follow as events warrant.

Dude--that was me.

That was indeed me. No worries, I was busy being excited that West Side Story was originally supposed to be East Side Story, anyway. What a fun exhibit!
