DC/Silver Spring Meetup!
posted April 19, 2017 11:53 AM   RSS

I think we should have a meetup because it feels like it's been a while. I propose we meet at Mi Rancho in Silver Spring because it has an outside space, it's nearish the Metro, and restaurants with margaritas are good for drinkers and non-drinkers alike.
I was going to propose the afternoon of Friday, May 5th but fuck if I'm going to a Mexican restaurant on Cinco de Mayo which, looking at the calendar and thinking about the dates our families are coming to town, means we'd need to wait until the weekend of May 13th at the earliest (but not that Friday; there's an ACLU volunteer training so if anyone is coming to that I'll see you there!). I would also prefer a Friday around 6:30, a Saturday afternoon or evening (say between 2:00 and 6:30) or I guess maybe a Sunday afternoon.

I know this will have to be a few weeks away but I wanted to get it on the calendar now. Does anyone have any preferences for dates after May 13th? I hope we get to see you all soon!

I would really like to do this (I was literally talking about Mi Rancho with a friend yesterday in ranking best Mexican joints in MoCo) but I'm not sure if any of the proposed possibilities will work due to my scheduled move from Rockville to my dream farmette out by Harpers Ferry with the heavy lifting going down the 13th. But to the extent that a person who's only made one official DC foodies meetup counts for anything, Friday evening would be the slot with the greatest likelihood of me making it.

I'm interested, but I have no real date preference. Anything could potentially become a bad date between now and then, but for now it all works.

(Also, DC Foodies should hit up Mandalay in Silver Spring some time. It's my favorite.)

I actually have no conflicts (!) with any of the proposed dates currently, although I might be out of town for Memorial Day weekend.

Okay, I'm going to propose Friday, May 19th, at 6:30 pm; how does that work for people? Super happy to do another date or time (although not too much later because of the kraken) but hopefully this will prevent us from all being so flexible that we never decide on anything.

I will probably not be able to arrive until after 7, but yes, that's fine with me!

That's my dad's birthday, but he's going to be in Barcelona, so it works for me!
