Sat February 25 at 12:00 PM, Yayla
2201 N Westmoreland St, Arlington, VA, USA (Map & Directions)
As much as I'd like to make another "LET'S JUST GO TO COMET" shitpost now that James bloody O'Keefe of all people is going after them (it's a long story, google it) I think...I think we should do brunch in February! the thought-fox's suggestion of Yayla (Turkish, near East Falls Church metro) sounded really tasty, and we haven't done Middle Eastern yet. Let's go on the 25th at noon!
The thread's been pretty quiet, so I'm just deciding on a date and time (Saturday the 25th at noon) and hopefully folks can make it! To make this simpler I may switch to a "last weekend of the month" plan for future meetups.

I have a reservation for 4 people but it's totally not too late to sign up; if you want to attend just RSVP yes and I will add to the total!

oh and for once they actually have opentable so I will make a reservation once stuff is concerned and capitalize on those sweet sweet gamification points.

25-26 would be best for me though 12 could potentially work.

Also tentatively, our next meetup will not be the last weekend of the month: the plan is Rocklands BBQ in early March, which is when they typically hold their "Grills Gone Wild" event featuring unusual meat offerings. We've been talking about going for a long time!

So it's the 23d, not the 25th? What time?

Yeah, which is it? I am assuming the 25th is right given the use of "brunch" but maybe not?

Sorry, was probably a little confusing there! It's Saturday the 25th at noon. Thursday is my informal cutoff for a reservation. Hope you can join us!

Can't make it, then. Have fun!

Aw, next time then!

Just saw this. Hope I'm still under the cutoff to put in a last minute RSVP.

definitely! Just reserved for 4 people but I should be able to edit if we get more "yes" RSVPs

Hi guys -- I'm on my way, but the trip is longer than I was thinking for some reason. I'll be there, but I'll be late! (Sorry about that. I'm figuring you'll go ahead and do your thing and I'll join you at whatever point in the meal you happen to be at when I get there? :) ).

Hey, what did you guys reserve under?
posted by rue72 at 9:41 AM on February 25, 2017

I'm here but the waiter says that there were no reservations for noon? Let me know which is your table and I'll join you :) If you see me, I'm in a black leather jacket with a black purse.

Well? Did rue72 find everyone else? Don't leave us hanging!
posted by Johnny Wallflower at 10:20 PM on February 25, 2017

Hahaha nope, I didn't.

While I was waiting around, I pumped my car's tires and took the old hubcaps off. So at least I got a chore done :) But eventually, I gave up on brunch and came home to have lox on toast with margarine -- which was surprisingly good.

I'll have to try again and hope for better luck next time!

Dang. Meetup protocol should specify a color for the smoke grenade that the organizer must set off to mark their location. Or maybe a Mylar balloon.

rue72, I'm so sorry we missed you! We'll definitely make it happen next time.
