Fri October 15 at 8:00 PM, Atomic Billiards
3427 Connecticut Ave NW, Washington D.C., DC, USA (Map & Directions)
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.)

I'm on board for the 15th or 16th.

A bunch of MeFites will be at Atomic Billiards in Cleveland Park on the 15th. Right next to Metro, and a relaxed poolhall vibe. I don't think I'll be able to make it, but you should go.

Apparently Atomic is one of my hosts' favorite bars. She says it has a "superior jukebox". So yeah, we will be there!

I'd like to come and meet some fellow MeFites, but I think I already have plans on the 15th. However I would be down for some sort of meetup on the 16th if anyone's interested...

16th instead? Who's doing the one on the 15th anyway?

16th I have a thing. Probably able to do 15th. Been meaning to hit up the billiards place. Win-Win.

I could probably make it out on the 15th, and probably not on the 16th.

I am the one who called the atomic meet up. It wasn't envisaged as a mefi meet up but the more the merrier. Pissed mrmonpie won't be there, but hoping he can send revered eviltiff!

Check my profile if you want to identify me there.

The wife and I met at atomic Billiards in 2002 and are lifetime members. What this means is while the juke box is excellent, we have one rule.... No Journey!

Sounds like the 15th is best. We'll be there around 8:00. I'll probably be wearing a cape.

Soot. Looking forward to meeting you

Wait. This is listed as the 14th. So confused

Ahh! I have the Dumb. It's updated.
posted by NoraReed at 8:56 PM on October 14, 2010

I plan to be there!

FYI, we plan to be there as early as 6pm to meet friends and shoot pool before it gets crowded. Feel free to show up whenever you can. I will be wearing a brown Threadless tee with chickens crossing Abbey Road over an orange long sleeve to make it easier to identify me.

Looking forward to meeting some new folks!

Also loves the tags! Superior Jukebox is a great band name.

Awesome. Planning on coming out, at least for a little bit. I'm rockin' a blue striped button down shirt and a navy vest. I look kinda like the cartoon in my profile - mostly giant curly hair.

Can't. Damn.

Damn you Reverend MrMoonPie! :(

Okay cool! It seems there is some overlap between my buddys' happy hour hangout thing and this meetup, so there may be some inter-mingling of groups?

In any case, I'm skipping the cape because it's not as cold as I thought it would be and it's sort of impractical to have capes in bars anyway. I'm wearing a sky blue shirt with white text on it and a BoingBoing/Gama-Go hoodie.

Server move saga is over for now, can totally make this.

I will be wearing a dashing set of khaki cargo pants paired with a bold yet not presumptuous blue polo.
posted by anti social order at 3:49 PM on October 15, 2010

Or not. Sorry all see you at the next one.
posted by anti social order at 5:45 PM on October 15, 2010

Shoot! I am just seeing this now. Hallo out to terrapin and turtlegirl (and the absent mrmoonpie)! Hope everyone had fun!

Back at our hotel, drunk and happy. Great to see so many old friends and to meet some wonderful new people!

That was great, thanks for turning up folks!
Also, if memory serves, I should wear a sign to future meetups that says: caution, dispenses dating advice when drunk.
