Star Trek: TNG Happy Hour - Return of Kahless/Return of Skwirl

Boldly continuing with Star Trek Happy Hour, "Rightful Heir," finds Lt. Worf/DC Mefites suffering a crisis of faith which leads him/them to an encounter with the resurrected/returned "Klingon messiah" Kahless/"mostly inoffensive" Skwirl. Lt. Worf/DC Mefites had many questions for Kahless/Skwirl, such as, "what is Sto-Vo-Kor/Bu-Da-Pest like?" and "how can we prevent the Klingon Empire/US Nation from succumbing to civil war/also civil war?"

March For Science in DC

Who's going to the DC March For Science? I'm planning to get there around noon, and I thought it would be nice to congregate with other MeFites.

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]

DC FOODIES February brunchytimes

As much as I'd like to make another "LET'S JUST GO TO COMET" shitpost now that James bloody O'Keefe of all people is going after them (it's a long story, google it) I think...I think we should do brunch in February! the thought-fox's suggestion of Yayla (Turkish, near East Falls Church metro) sounded really tasty, and we haven't done Middle Eastern yet. Let's go on the 25th at noon! [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]

Delicious Foodstuffs Tour of DC Begins with Fish in the Hood

The winner of our food poll is Fish in the Hood, located in Park View, DC. (Easy walk from Georgia Ave-Petworth Metro.) (Also, potentially, in the 'hood?) I'm going to go ahead and simplify this process and pick out a date myself: Saturday, March 14, 2015 at 7:00 PM. It's near some great bars so a Saturday night should be pretty ideal for anyone who wants a night out on the town. Hope to see you all there! [more inside]

Let's drink beer and buy toys!

In the Weird DC thread, troika mentioned that Churchkey + going to the incredibly bizarre yet oddly charming Monarch Novelties could be a great meetup combination, so I say: why not? We'll meet up at Monarch at noon, and then hang out at Churchkey until whenever. Feel free to drop in at any time in the afternoon.

Washington DC is open again!

I'm going to be in DC on Friday November 1 for a meeting (which just got finally confirmed, even though everyone in the department I contract for has been furloughed recently and so it hasn't had any organizers...) and I'll be staying overnight. Wondering if any mefites want to meet up for dinner and/or drinks? I'm staying in Dupont Circle, but happy to head anywhere. Update: we have added a restaurant venue.

Mefi's own Antonio Lulic @ Renaissance Dupont Circle Hotel

One of our own, armoured-ant aka Antonio Lulic, is doing a North American tour and will be in Washington DC on October 16th. The lovely Coldchef suggested it to me which he sadly cannot attend so I was seeing if any Mefites would like to meet up for dinner and/or drinks beforehand and then attend the show which is free. Antonio's bio page is here and you can check out some of his music here.

I Don't Know Why You Say Goodbye, I Say Hello

So, I'm going to be back in town for a conference after nine months absence or so and miss all my Internet friends. More importantly, beloved MeFite Potomac Avenue is leaving DC for bigger apples. What say we get together for drinks and funtimes?

Small Press Expo

Small Press Expo is the premiere event for graphic novels, the comic arts and cartooning -- at least, that's what we like to tell people, although in my absolutely biased opinion, it's true. SPX is amazing, and if you're anywhere nearby, please check it out. [more inside]

Big Ideas Social Club Returns

Since you helped me start it last November, Big Ideas Social Club has been going strong: we're an entertaining cross between a 17th century salon, a group of bar buddies and the funniest guys and gals you've ever met. Our sixth meeting will be on Groundhog Day and, since it's been a while since I've done it formally, I want to invite MeFites out. [more inside]

Washington, DC - come out come out wherever you are

Hi all. We moved to DC at the beginning of December and although I've already met a few of the area's fine MeFites, I'd like to meet more. My own special snowflakeness: I have a toddler and my significant other comes home late, so weekends are best. Otherwise, what works for others?

DC meetup at 8:00 at Atomic Billiards

I'll be in Washington DC for a little bit and would be game for a meetup on either the 14th, 15th or 16th. Interested? Evenings are better for me, it'd be cool to go for drinks or something. (Preferably in a place where conversation is actually possible, since Mefites have interesting delicious brains.)

Noel Coward play + possible socializing before or after

A pal of mine is in the Silver Spring Stage production of Noel Coward's Private Lives and nearly guarantees a good time to any attendee. Cutting British wit, that sort of thing. It's at 8. Wanna grab beverages/food before &/or after? Update: My pal says, "For pregaming, there's a Mexican place also across the street that is ideal - Fajita Coast." So I hereby propose that we meet there at 7pm. I shall be there with a book in any case. [more inside]
