    One day I'll go to one of these...

    Why is it all the cool people live in the DC area/NoVA?

    The city.

    It sounds like March 3 or 4 might be the best bet then...

    You know you want the excuse to Acela...though God knows those standard commuters with the EMD 109s are a whole lot cheaper...

    Cool dude, let me know and maybe we can grab an adult beverage.

    What am I the resident of? Inappropriate stories?

    Cool, maybe we can have another one then!

    :dance:

    You're the resident guy who brings us yummy Potbelly food.

    I would love to do this, but I don't have my license yet and the likelihood of my parents driving me to DC to meet a bunch of people from the Internet is highly unlikely.

    Are you close to Metro? In the past the meeting spot has been at a restaurant near Union Station, which is easily accessible by Metro.

    My schedule for March isn't out yet, but I have jury duty on the March 5, so I suppose I could make it that evening for some shindig.

    Alright, I have my schedule for the next period, and I suspect many others do as well. How does March 4 work?

    I'm naturally going to vouch for Capitol City Brewing Company by the train station, but I'm open to other ideas.

    I'm pretty sure I've been there before. It's a nice place.

    March 4 sounds great. I'll likely be in town the 3rd-6th or so.

    I'll be moving then, so maybe I'll invite y'all to the Mid-west CFC meetup some time?

    Dinner would probably work better than lunch for me.
