happy Hour?

There was a big round of PMs about having a post meet happy hour. So what happened? Why would we all let such a fun topic wither and die?

Ok genius meet organizers - do it again!

I heard rumors of this as well--but I had to return my Ford-Explorer-driving-college-buddy to Arlington. What happened?

I started the last round of PMs for HH. Registering your preferences, HH is harder to plan for than the meets There's parking considerations, traffic to worry about, location, time, place, HH specials etc.

Shooting for 2 weeks time...

Please keep this thread active. There was much interest expressed for HH during and after the meet. It was a pleasure meeting all of you...

I'd be up for a happy hour as well

What exactly is the issue? Some folks live in VA, some in MD? We can't just meet in the middle ... say in DC or Georgetown?

Sam, you're forgetting...the issue with DC or Georgetown is parking Unless we can park on the outskirts and arrange a shuttle...then I don't think DC will work. There's always the metro though...

Hmmm actually re reading my last post...that might be the ticket. That opens up possibilities....metro does open up doors

Who's in for a DC meet?

Note: I can arrange for free parking on a private lot by Dupont Circle....max 6 cars for thise street-parking phobic individuals

Are you guys leaning towards a sports bar, college bar or chill lounge environment/setting? Casual or elegant? Noisy or quiet? I think we are incorporating dinner with into this HH, right?

Old Town Fish Market on the South end of King St.
http://www.fishmarketoldtown.com/Abo...rtainment.html
-Pakring is no issue.
-Great Pooh Pooh Platers, 32oz gigantic Beer for $5. Clam Chowder over the counter to get you started, Spicy Buffalo Wings or Calimari, Good Pasta Seafood. Relatively inexpensive for the most part.
http://www.fishmarketoldtown.com/Menu/menu.html
-You can walk the Harbour for some street musicians or artist galour.
-Great Shop after and a sport bar nearby
http://www.fishmarketoldtown.com/Abo...rtainment.html
-Ben and Jerry is the customary next stop after a nice light meal while walking the Pier.
-If it turns out to be a warm night, expect a nice Harley Davidson Crowd to rubble by and hang out the street end.
http://www.fishmarketoldtown.com/movie.htm
Just an idea to pass on to these Cool Washingtonian DC Metro Folks!

Ase...yeah I've been there Huge Beers !! Food's pretty decent, as well.

I don't get how parking in Old Town is easy though? Also, the bar area is none too big for congregating.

What about that Pizza place on the same block, that's owned by a former NHL player...I can't recall the name right now.

Ahh... good ol Fish Market. Schooners FTW! As far as a happy hour goes there, yeah the bar isn't all that big.

The pizza place was the old Armand's ... I'm not sure if it is still called that, but it's still there. Small bar upstairs if I remember correctly.

If we're talking Old Town, I think Union Street has a bigger bar and food too. And there is plenty of public parking via the garages around there.

If folks wanna take metro, there are plenty of places in D.C.

Public Parking Garages



Like I mentioned, with Metro we lose one of our main constraints. I also have prime private parking a block away from Dupont Circle (about 6-7 cars max). We have a diplomatic office there.

Let's keep the ball rolling....

LOL, what's wrong with public parking?

Seriously, if you got a hook up for private parking in Dupont, I'm in. Rather drive in and park then take metro.

We can all hit 18th Street lounge... or Donny since you're from Miami we can go to Cafe Citron for a little Latin feel
