Sun September 14 at 2:00 PM, The Board Room
1737 Connecticut Avenue Northwest, Washington, DC, USA (Map & Directions)
I'm not saying you should wear your straw boater after Labor Day, but I am saying that summer doesn't actually end until autumn starts, so we've still got a few weeks to squeeze in a summer gaming meetup.
Confirmed for September 14 at The Board Room.

I'm free all the proposed weeks. Huzzah!

Not to hijack, but my local weekly boardgaming group, DC Game Night (dcgamenight.org, which redirects to our FB group) is celebrating our seventh birthday with a four-day orgy of boardgaming from the 28th to the 31st. Feel free to glom onto that. It's not Mefi-specific, but we're very welcoming to new people, lots of gamers, lots of games. Three of those days/nights are at my apartment, one is at SoHo.

Seriously, if this is considered spam, I apologize and delete as appropriate. But if you're looking for a location that isn't the Board Room (which is kind of loud and dark for actual gaming), I recommend SoHo Tea and Coffee in Dupont (22nd and P). Nice space, near to the Metro, large tables, a management friendly to gamers. I've been going there for seven years to play boardgames.

Four of us have a D&D session on the 13th so we wouldn't be able to go then because the DM is a harsh, cruel woman and will glare at them a bunch if they blow it off (it is I! I am the DM!).

The 7th sounds the best to me out of those dates I think if it's good for other people.

Yay! I'm free every day but the 13th.

I can't do the 7th or the 13th. If it's held then please yell at whatever's on TV in my stead.

Unsure of my schedule at this point, but I know that only the 13th or 14th are possibilities.

14th would probably be okay to make sure troika can come; no one can ever replace her in my heart for for TV yelling.

Okay, looks like the 14th works for the most folks, so I'm setting it for then. X-Himy, thanks for the info about your group!

And the Bills play the Dolphins that day so there will be a lot of yelling.

We should be at our usual tables right behind the first floor bar. Looking forward to seeing you all!

Actually, we're upstairs, at the front section of the balcony. They have a bunch of new games, including Dominion, so check out the cabinet on your way in. I have laid claim to Pirate Fluxx for us.
