It's decided! We will have a west coast meets east coast meetup at Northside Social, Arlington!

Come for a relaxing end of the week and meet fellow mefites. Stay for the Swedish drinking songs... (I will bring translations if necessary.)

Looking forward to seeing you all!

Unfortunately I'll be out of town on vacation, but DC Mefites usually are always game for a meetup when somebody is in town, so I'm sure there will be plenty of interest. Enjoy your stay in our city!

I will be out of town on vacation as well, otherwise this sounds like fun! I need to get out to a DC Mefi meetup sometime.

I am also going to be in DC Oct 31 - Nov 4 (visiting from Australia) and would love to connect if this happens. If Thursday late afternoon/early evening works for others, I'll be there. Interested in Swedish drinking songs!

Hello there! I'm a local who's up for getting together. Preference for the 4th but can probably do the 3rd as well. Would need to do late afternoon/early evening, in terms of timing.

Speaking of Swedish drinking songs, too bad y'all are going to just miss a whole bunch of cool events at the Embassy of Sweden in Georgetown.

Rabarberofficer and latnahc, are you all familiar with the area? I can throw out some ideas for restaurants, activities, etc if you'd like.

Hi all! Sounds as we will have a Meetup! Great!

Let's keep the day open a little longer, and see which one gets most votes. latnahc - looking forward to meeting you!

The thought-fox: Could you suggest a venue? Also: I will be at the Swedish Embassy during the days. What events are you thinking about?

I'm sorry to miss this because I love meetups, especially with out of town guests, but we will be attending a wedding in Rhode Island that weekend so we won't be able to come (also we have a baby so probably not so much with the Swedish drinking songs).

Have a fantastic time and hopefully you can come back soon for another meetup!

Sorry to miss you Mrs. Pterodactyl. The baby is no issue, in Sweden we use drinking songs as lullabys. [fake]. Another time!

Oh man, I'm just going to miss this! I'm around the weekend 29-30, and fly out early 31 (I'm usually in Denmark). I'm gonna see where you all go though, and maybe drag Mr. Nat with me a few days early.. because Mefites choose fun places!

Just noticed this. I probably won't be able to stay in the city after work that week :-(. Enjoy the sights!

Guys! Looking forward to seeing you all in Washington soon!

Have been in DC a couple of days now, and is very much looking forward to venturing into Arlington Friday night to meet Mefites! See you there!

Oh, by the way. First person on the scene - please reserve a table in the name of Metafilter (so that we can find each other.)
