The 2007 DC Area Happy Hour Thread

Welcome all to the new 2007 DC Metro Area Happy Hour Thread! Our Happy Hours are not necessarily restricted to just Happy Hours - include lunches, dinners, driving in circles in parking lots and anything else you can dream up and get together a bunch of people for!


Our current scheduled get togethers are as follows

---------------------------------------------------------------

One handy tip: Do go to an ATM and carry cash with you - its always easier to settle a bill if everyone has cash - rather than having 10 credit cards on the table. And we can let the host/hostess (organizer) use a credit card if they prefer

MileageAddict for the currently active suggestions - someone's gotta go ahead and organize it - and then it becomes official

I was just hoping to put out the suggestions from folks into one place so that no one misses out on a good idea.

I will hate to miss having dinner with friends, but since the time cannot be moved back, I think that I will be better off just having a pickup from a hotel in Crystal City at 8PM and room servicing.

I will just be coming off CDG-PHL-SDF-DCA within 36 hours including a full day's work in Louisville and another staring me in the face in Fairfax County, then back to LGA. Hustling to a DCA rental car and then only having a short time with the dinner party will so detract from the visit that it will be better not to try.

So all have a great time at the Fourth Estate and if anything develops for Jan 28th or 29th, that's our next time around for DC.

Question How about 1/31?

Mrs Skydiver and I, along with 2 (non FT) friends will be in DC from 1/30 to 2/2. We are free for a get-together of any kind at any time on Wed, Jan 31 if anyone is interested (call it the early Feb gathering). We had a great time with some of you in September and would like to try again. Anything works for us in terms of location/format/foods.

Any interest?
