Washington Area Planners

Ok folks lets try this again now that the holidays are over.

Any Washington DC area planners (Baltimore, Richmond etc are welcome) want to get together for a cup of java in mid to late Feb?

Lemme know

(Dan) Added "DC" to Subject: line, so planners from Seattle won't get confused.

I'm up, but I want to go some place with good drink specials.

Java is okay, but when I go out I'm going to imbibe.

Well right now if its just us Im thinking Whitlows on Wilson (in Clarendon) on a Monday night-half price burgers, good beer, metro is a block away and free parking. If others show intrest Ill look at a more central location.

I am not very familiar with Clarendon or the location you mentioned since I live on the MD side and do not get to VA much but... I could make it work. I might also go for a downtown place but I am pretty flexible. I would like to make the get-together. Second part of February sounds fine. Lets pick a date! Happy New Year All.

Would it help you to have Metro an option or would you rather drive? I have no problems doing it some where in the City, maybe Afterwords Cafe in Dupont? or Cosi?

I'll be out there the week before Labor Day for training in Emmitsburg.

?Had you been there before?

What do you think - A new thread asking if they had been there , what class did they take?

You're right. Arlington-Alexandria. At least they both start with A's.

Never been there before. I'm going because the Feds are paying and I was told to go. Besides, its close to Gettysburg and I plan on spening some time there.

I'm up for anything. I can do a Metro accessible location if it's a relatively early Happy Hour (in DC anything before 7PM is early). Otherwise someplace I can drive is better, because I HATE taking Metro after 8PM.

PG and I were discussing our plans today at lunch for our get together and we were wondering if you would prefer a weekday night or weekend?

Trail Natzi and PG,

No strong preference here, either would be fine with me. Looking forward to getting together with you all. PS. When do you head to Philly TN?

Good to hear that you are going to come to the get together.

We are going to head north at the end of April or early May. Not looking forward to colder weather.
