Sat June 14 at 12:00 PM, Monarch Novelties
1331 14th Street Northwest, Washington, DC, USA (Map & Directions)
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.

I think Saturday the 14th would be awesome. Thank you so much for proposing this!

We can probably do the 14th also. The 21st would be ok as well.

I'm down for any of these probably, but Monarch has unusual hours. I think on Saturdays they're only open from, like, 11am-1pm or something.

Ah yes, looks like we might have to get creative with the timing here. Churchkey has lunch hours on Saturday so we could make it an afternoon thing.

At this point, all of those dates look fine for me.

I vote for 14th!

I haven't been to a Meetup in forever. And only once in DC. That sounds appealing. I think I'm open to any dates, and as someone coming up from Hampton Roads, that Saturday afternoon thing sounds particularly nice.

Anything but the 13th-14th, plz

So far the 14th does look like the best date overall - sorry, C'est la D.C., maybe next time? :/ So let's say meet over by Monarch at noon, check that out, and then head over to the magical beerland that is Churchkey.

Just a heads up that I have class until four that day so I'll miss Monarch but I think Bulgaroktonos will probably go and I can meet up with you all at Churchkey at five thirty or six. Buy me tons of awesome crap!

I'd like to go, but I can't join till about 2:00, so I'll just head straight to Churchkey!

Please stay at least until I get there!

I just hopped on the bus heading down there. If I'm a few minutes late it's because I was waylaid by some pancakes. Mmm pancakes.

Anyway for those who haven't met me before or are as faceblind as me I'm wearing a purple T-shirt and a denim skirt. See you all there!

and we'll definitely be there a while. We've got 555 beers to drink after all.
posted by capricorn at 8:35 AM on June 14, 2014

We have moved on to Churchkey! We're near the back at a table.

Just kidding we're in the front!

Turns out I am a big ole liar - my early afternoon thing went late and then I was really tired. Next time!

I have just signed in to MeFi and missed the June meetup. Will there be more?
