DC Meetup.
I'm Selfish. I'm going to be in DC tomorrow thru fri. Any interest in a meetup on Wednesday night? I'll be in the downtown region (near Farragut West.) We could make it a happyhourish thing. I've never been to a meetup. And I know all you DCites want to meet a real philadelphian.

Hi filmgeek! I'm sort of game though Wednesday night might be tough for me. Our recent Screen on the Green meetup attempt was at least partly foiled due to poor weather. Happy hour at a bar is probably best, but the short notice might be a problem for attendance.

Normally, I'd be there. But MrsMoonPie and I are closing on a house Tuesday, then starting to move in afterwards, so I'm out of commission for a while. Sorry!

mrmoon, c'mon you need a break!
Only, I could make this thurs instead.

C'mon. Contact those who are near you!

I'm good for anywhere near a Metro station after work.

The weather's supposed to be pretty good on Wednesday.What about the back deck at 18th St Lounge?

Oooh, deck is good! I know one or two people who can make Thursday but not Wednesday, fwiw.

Either day is OK for me. There should be plenty of room inside if the weather is foul -- but if there's another suggestion for place I'm also open to it.

There's talk of making this thurs - (normally, I would just say thurs

In fact, let's make it Thursday, Thursday, THURSDAY

I'm in downtown (near faragut west) and understand how the metro works.

OnlyC- pick a place (we'll call the official "unofficial" start time at 5:30pm until...well the last of you leave.); either you or I should call that place and *warn* them - if you're coming, sound off here with an AYE.

I think it's shaping up for Thursday at the 18th Street Lounge, with potential attendees being filmgeek, brownpau, coelecanth, NortonDC (maybe), me (maybe) plus 2 other MeFites, maybe more. Also, I've invited the monkeys, and so far SideDish and BearGuy are thinking it over.

I think we should do the 18th Street Lounge. I couldn't get there before 7:30, though, and some of the monkeys are also talking about showing up late, e.g., 9:30. Move start time back to 6:30 or 7, or will others come early?

(Hey, ladies, the m/f ratio here so far is 2 to 1. Lets start representing!)

Unfortunately, I had previous plans for both nights already, so I will be unable to attend.

Hey everyone, this page is going to roll, so check out details on the wiki. Also I just realized the 18th Street Lounge may have a $10 cover charge. Are people okay with that or do you want to try somewhere else?

Place has been changed to the Big Hunt in DuPont. See the wiki linked just above for more information!
