Sat July 11 at 6:30 PM, Medaterra
2614 Connecticut Avenue Northwest, Washington, DC, USA (Map & Directions)
We'll be going to Medaterra on Connecticut at 6:45 on Saturday for dinner. Join us and celebrate an out-of-town MeFite!
I've made a reservation and I'm happy to change it as necessary but I'd like to give them a firm and accurate number as soon as possible so if you could please RSVP early that would be fantastic. Hopefully we'll have a big group and see you all soon!

I'm also in town right now & it'd be cool to say howdy to yinz. Not sure that I can make it, but I'll update when I have some certainty.

I was thinking about going to the comic swap at Fantom at 3, but if I'm not wiped after that I'd love to join you guys!

Sorry I'll have to decline but I was raised to believe bringing your awful head cold to share with visitors was discouraged. Enjoy your visit, deja.

For those who are traveling via metro, heads up that there are several station closures planned for the red line this weekend.

Yay! Look forward to seeing everyone who can be there, and long distance hugs to those who can't. (And tissues and tea to phearlez.)

Excited for my first MeFi gathering!

Yay! We are very excited you will be coming! I mean, I assume other people are included in "we" but I at least am very excited.

Will there be a reservation / party from the internet kind of thing we can bring in so we don't stare goggle-eyed around the room when we show up?

I'm guessing from their website that they have someone who seats people, as opposed to it being a wander around kinda place, so I think as long as we whisper the secret cabal passphrase: "We're from the internet!", we shall be ushered deferentially to the secret lair, or table, as the case may be. (There is no cabal).

Yeah, my plan was to try to show up a bit early so anyone who shows up at like 6:20 can just ask the awkward-looking group of weirdos outside "are you from the internet?".

Barring that, usually someone posts where we are sitting in the thread and if you're really not sure MeFi mail me and I'll probably get it.

Okay they just called to confirm; we'll be sitting outside and I told the that if anyone looks confused and asks for "the internet" or "Metafilter" to send them over to us. Worst case scenario we end up with a bunch of confused strangers which is basically what we're all planning to do anyway so I think it will be fine.

I can make it! I think I'm going to get there a bit early and wander the zoo for a while, if anyone wants to join me for that.
posted by nonasuch at 1:20 PM on July 11, 2015

We're here! We're on the back patio so if you say "the big group on the back patio" you will find us.

That was so awesome! Thanks to everyone who came out, and I'm pretty sure I owe someone for my tab at Gin Joint. I had so much fun, thanks gang.

Yes, seconding that! Thanks so much to everyone for coming -- it was great!
