DC, NOVA, MD Slap & Tickle - Weekend of Sept 15th

Hey everybody, I will be flying into DC to hangout with some friends the weekend of Sept 15th. I will be flying in Thursday 13th and leaving Sunday 16th.

It would be awesome to get together at some point, even if its just for food/drinks (I'll even buy a round or two ) There are no set plans for activities that weekend so the schedule should be fairly open; at least Fri and Sat since Sunday will be travel.

This would also be a great way for my friends who have moved out there, to meet some people in the area.

As always the GWJ community here is alive and well. I am sure we can arrange a gathering. I think i have a class that weekend. Count the Bear Clan in. Where are your friends located? oh Bother..this is Kiri. Dr forgot to log out again.

Reston but, willing to travel any distance.

I might be in depending on the time. I'll be back from Miami by then and the wife will be back that weekend.

Hmmm, Reston. Don't know anywhere there to meet up.

I'm currently in Annapolis and afaik at this point I'm available that weekend.

Crystal City might be a good happy medium; there's quite a few decent places around there.

Crystal City Restaurant?

No, Crystal City as in the place. It's not horribly far from Reston, and fairly accessible from most of MD as well.

Easy travel via Metro.

Crystal City isn't bad. I'm game.

If we're interested in suggestions, can I put Ray's Hell Burger in? It is fantastic. There's no room to sit, though.

I should be able to make it and I'm up for anything.

I'm so glad to finally say this, I'll be there for this GWJ Slap & Tickle!

Ballston and Clarendon are, too.

Ooohhhh! I love burgers!

Do we just want to grab some food and hang out or add other activity(s) also?

There are some large restaurants with lots of seating in the Tysons Corner Mall, which is right off the belt and easy to find. There's a lot of things in Silver Spring, too. But I don't know it as well. Taco and Paleo know those spots.

My friend asked if we were just getting together for food/drinks or, if we were going to do some gaming too. I told him unless someone offers to host a gaming night if would just be food/drinks. It would be fun to hang out and play some games but, I don't want to impose on amyone.

I'll be in Hawaii on business (thank you taxpayers), but hopefully one day I'll get in on a NOVA/DC S&T. That sounds dirtier than I wanted.

Party at SpyNavy's house!

Just drop your keys in the basket by the door, Spy...

In Silver Spring here is an awesome bar with great microbrews on tap and a couple hundred beers on the menu (and an entire whiskey/bourbon/scotch menu), along with really decent pub grub in Silver Spring. It's called the Quarry House. But Crystal City or any other place on the metro isn't too far for me to go.

That sounds like a place I could live at.

We need to settle on where and when, we are going to meet up. I booked my flights today; I get in early Friday morning and leave Sun evening.

Had a great time at the S&T at GenCon so I highly recommend going to this one. Wish I was going to be in town.

OK, Quarry House it is. What time works best for everyone? I'll be in Friday morning, leaving Sunday afternoon.

The bar opens at 5 on Saturday, so I would vote for then, but I can do Friday night as well.

Hey all, I'd love to share a beer or two with some fellow GWJers. A Saturday 5pm meeting time would be best for me, but Friday evening would work as well.

Looking forward to it!

I have bad news... I just found out today I'm going to have to be in Philly this weekend.

Please drink a beer in my honor though.

Philly will still be there next week but, I won't.

Bear Clan will try and make it. Kiri has a class and her 30th HS reunion.
