I'll be housesitting in DC from Christmas until January 6th and would love to meetup with some MeFites. Anyone up for grabbing a drink in the mid (or post)-holiday lull?

(And yes, this meetup thread has been brought to you by the fabulous (but not in DC) amberglow.)

I really thought no one was going to post anything on MeTa today. I almost made a 'bugs' post about it....

I'm there all next week! It would be great to have it someplace besides a bar this time.

word. i can be there after the 5th (job won't let me go until everyone's totally over the holiday).

I'd consider driving up from Virginia Beach to meet a few mefites.

I'd love to impose my newbie-ness on you established MeFites. I never thought I'd say this, but I miss NW D.C.

I'm gonna be in DC on the 26th with little to do.


amber, i thought you were from NY?

Now that's what to do when someone's dumb enough to let you look after their house, throw a party for 20,000 people.

Oh yeah, I hope you don't mind but I just posted it up on slashdot as well. The more the merrier, right?

It's high time those DC area MeFites (me included) showed their strength.

Sometime after the 28th, mkay?

dhoyt, i am--i just suggested it to amanda, being such a meetup whore--even if i can't be there.

We should import amber, by force if necessary.

I'm gonna be being Eurotrash--in Italy! : >

Amber- you....you....meetup tease! Just wait, though. We'll get you. [maniaical laughter]

At any rate, dhoyt- if we had it after the 28th, would you not be able to attend? I'm completely flexible on scheduling, seeing as my plans so far include museums, reading and finding the best tea in DC.

I would love to meet some mefites. I can't do it after the 29th, but then I might not be able to make it anyway. Regardless, I'd like to know about it.

As for tea, there's an awesome place called Teaism near Dupont.

You know, why does this meetup have to be a one day event, considering the everyone's variable vacation time?

I smell a use for THE WIKI!

Teaism in Dupont is nice. Do we want to use the old DC Meetup wiki, too? I'll be around except just before and after Christmas. Also I have a stuffed monkey.

I've been using the wiki that blasdelf posted...since it seems that there might be more than one meetup involved here, I figured that the newer and cleaner wiki might be nicer.

Just moved it over.

On Preview:
Oh well...

Heh. I just went and was like "or not." Anyway...

DC Mefites! For a good time, go to the wiki!
posted by amandaudoff at 12:18 AM on December 19, 2004

Sorry, I'm daft and can't figure out how to use that wiki. I don't see this meetup listed on the Meetup iCal either. Is the 29th at Trysts finalized yet?
