MeFites March on Washington

Look, I know a lot of us are coming to the March, and I bet a lot of us don't yet have plans on anyone to march with. And I know that some of us would like Pussy Hats to wear and some of us can make 'em; it seems like a good idea to coordinate in advance on that. [more inside]

Since our last location apparently wants to make America great again (eyeroll), let's focus on what makes DC great right now. Comet Ping Pong is a DC institution and currently under fire from conservative internet nutjobs for stupid reasons. Let's give them dollars for their pizza.

Hello FOODIES! I think it's safe to say our regular meetups will resume next month, but my October got a little busy. So this time around, I'm just going to call it for a Sunday lunch on the 23rd and an easy-to-reach location--one that comes recommended by several MeFites. Hope you can join me for delicious fried chicken and other Korean goodies at Bonchon!

DC FOODIES are in the jungle, baby!

Hello food fans of DC! We had an excellent Uzbek lunch last weekend (with duffell and CatastropheWaitress' tiny adorable baby!!) and I think it's about time we got back into a routine. I promised metro accessibility, I promised vegetarian options, and I think a great way to fulfill the promise would be at Thip Khao, an excellent Laotian restaurant in Columbia Heights which wants to welcome you to the jungle. Who's in? [more inside]

DC Meetup for Expectant/Recent Parents and Anyone Who Doesn't Mind Talking About Strollers

I know there are a bunch of expectant MeFi parents in the DC area (and maybe some recent parents?) so I thought it would be nice if we could have a meetup to keep ourselves sane(ish) and get a chance to check in with other intelligent, thoughtful adults going through the same thing. Everyone who wants to come is welcome, just know that the conversation might center around, like, babies and whatnot. I expect this to be this Saturday afternoon, April 16th. [more inside]
