April meetup in DC
posted April 2, 2013 12:21 PM   RSS | iCal | +googleCal

Sun April 21 at 1:00 PM, Board Room
1737 Connecticut Avenue Northwest, Washington, DC, USA (Map & Directions)
Now that maybe, possibly, hopefully all that miserable cold weather is behind us, who feels like venturing out for a meetup? I was thinking a weekend afternoon meetup at the Board Room would be fun, but other ideas are welcome!

update: confirmed for the Board Room on Sunday, April 21 at 1:00.
Note: I just caught that the Board Room is 21 and over, with some possible flexibility if we ask nicely in advance. So if anyone under 21 wants to join, please let me know by the middle of next week.

Ooooh, that sounds awesome! I am very very interested in this possibility.

Never done one of these before but depending on which weekend I am potentially interested - would like to meet some of you excellent MeFi folks! :)

I'm interested. How about the 13th or 14th of April around 1 PM?

I am out of town that weekend (but if it works for everyone else, no worries). Better dates for me would be the 21st or the weekend of the 27th-28th.

the 21st or 28th would be awesome for me.

Likewise interested. Great idea.

I'm certainly interested!

How about the 21st, starting at 1:00?
posted by EvaDestruction at 5:27 PM on April 6, 2013

1pm on the 21st works great for cynicalidealist and me.

28th works for me.

28th would be better for me then the 21st.

28th is a book club meeting in Dupont at or around 1730 hours; so anything before (early afternoon) or after (evening) might be tenable.

21st is thus far quite doable anytime in the day.

As for Sunday the 14th, I'm booting up a socially conscious movie night at my place near 16th and Columbia NW. WMATA: S2, S4, S9, 42 or 1 mile from Columbia Heights or Woodley Park metros. 7 PM, starting with "A Place at the Table." Bring snackluck food or drinks. MeFiMail me with your real life email address for details.

Okay, folks. It looks like 1:00 works as a start time, but we don't have a clear date preference. I'd like to move this to a planned meetup by this evening, so if you have strong feelings about the 21st vs the 28th that you have not yet registered, please let me know!
posted by EvaDestruction at 9:20 AM on April 10, 2013

I'm about 50/50 for the 21st, but cannot do the 28th at all.
posted by Nomyte at 1:24 PM on April 10, 2013

i'm interested as well and i have no preference for dates.

this is relevant to my interests
posted by anotherpanacea at 6:23 PM on April 10, 2013

Okay, folks. It looks like the 21st has a slight edge, so I'm going to make this official.

Ooh! Count me in!

I believe the Pterodactyl household will be in attendance!
posted by Mrs. Pterodactyl at 3:05 PM on April 11, 2013

I'll be showing up around 2 PM, so wait up!
posted by evoque at 4:59 AM on April 12, 2013

I'll be there. I might bring our set of Cards Against Humanity too.

We have a thing at 1pm up by Columbia Heights, but may come by later. :)

I just stopped by the Board Room to check in, and the bartender said they'll probably put us downstairs, just past the bar, near the jukebox.

I'm newish to MeFi and haven't posted a ton, but if you don't mind entertaining lurkers, I'd love to try to stop by!
posted by eponym at 5:00 PM on April 20, 2013

eponym....The more the merrier!
we are usually pretty nice and interesting people.

Also was thinking of either bringing Munchkin or Smashup
posted by ShawnString at 6:01 PM on April 20, 2013

I think I'm probably going? But I have a terrible commitment problem that's keeping me from clicking the YES button. That button, I dunno.
posted by kittens for breakfast at 9:02 PM on April 20, 2013

We're easy to find, come on down!
posted by peeedro at 10:40 AM on April 21, 2013

It was good to see everyone (twice!)
posted by baconaut at 3:08 PM on April 21, 2013

That was awesome fun. Thanks all

And EvaDestruction will always be the evil wizard!
posted by ShawnString at 3:34 PM on April 21, 2013 [1 favorite]

I'd be up to commit to doing this as a somewhat regular thing.
posted by peeedro at 3:38 PM on April 21, 2013

I suppose there should be a mapping of names to handles now so I know who's who.
posted by baconaut at 3:41 PM on April 21, 2013

That was really fun! I don't know who everyone is in terms of screen names v. real names, either (my name is in my profile), but I do...mostly?
posted by kittens for breakfast at 7:52 PM on April 21, 2013

Yes, I will always be the evil wizard. After all, the good ones don't get ruby slippers.

I would definitely do this as a semi-regular thing if folks are interested. "Semi-regular" would mean "every couple of months or so" if I'm organizing, but I would not feel like my organizing toes were being stepped on if someone wanted to set this up on a more consistent basis.

Oh, and unfortunately I didn't notice until we were leaving, but they have Cards Against Humanity behind the bar, so we should definitely play that next time!
