Sun July 17 at 10:30 AM, Gourmet Inspirations
2646 University Blvd W, Silver Spring, MD, USA (Map & Directions)
Hello FOODIES and welcome to the planning thread for our July meetup! (Sorry, I know that title pun is terrible.) Everyone seemed pretty interested in dim sum when we met up earlier this month, and my research suggests that Gourmet Inspirations in Silver Spring, MD (near the Wheaton Red Line stop) is the area's sleeper hit, both better-reviewed and apparently less-crowded than its competitors. For anyone who doesn't know what dim sum is, it's Hong Kong-style brunch tapas and it is delicious! Usually lots of dumplings and pastries are involved. Update: Date/time confirmed, hope to see you there!
Gourmet Inspirations is a short walk from the Wheaton metro. Metro access to Wheaton will not be directly affected by SafeTrack in July. Please be aware that we will need to wait in line, so comfortable walking shoes and arriving right when the restaurant opens at 10:30 are probably good ideas.

I'll probably be out the weekend of the 9th, but everything else should be cool.

I can do July 10, 16/17, and 31.

I could maybe do this (I have a hard time getting time away). I'm nowhere near sure enough to offer a date, though.

Aww, I will miss this. Bookmarking location for later though.

Hey everyone! We'll be coming straight off the MARC train, and on Sundays the earliest train arrives at Union Station at 10:15. The earliest that we can arrive at Gourmet Inspirations, therefore, is 10:45. I was wondering if it was cool if we arrived late, or if the restaurant only seats people if everyone in the party has already arrived?

Excited to see y'all tomorrow!

Knowing we'll probably have to wait a little while, I'm sure arriving at 10:45 should be fine, so no worries!

I'll try to arrive a little before 10:30, and (for those who haven't met me before) I'll be in my MeFi "flag it and move on" T-shirt.

Excited for this! I think we'll be driving from the Columbia Heights/Petworth area--if anyone (we can transport 3 more) wants to carpool, memail me!

Copronymus and I arrived early and are inside the restaurant

We are at a table in the back. Only seats 10 people and we are full up, but there are still other tables open (various sizes), so we can start another.

Thanks everyone for coming today for All The Dumplings! I am currently lying on the couch in a food coma and I regret nothing.
