DC/Silver Spring Meetup!

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. [more inside]

Radiohead in New Orleans

Anyone else going to the Radiohead show in New Orleans on Monday? I'm a huge fan who's never seen them live, so I'm taking the day off to ride the Crescent train down and spend most of the day waiting in line like a nut for a decent spot. If anybody else has general admission/floor tickets, maybe we can do a mini meet-up and save each other's places in line for food/bathroom breaks/chat/phalanxing our way to center rail?
