You wanna go to the Zoo 2: Electric Scootaloo!

Well the first zoo meetup was a blast, and the mini meetup after the brushable meet was just as cool, so how about we do this again. We'll meet near the zoo for lunch, frolic among the animals till dinner, then we could even see a movie.

Best part is: It's next to a metro stop... AND THE ZOO IS FREE

    Fun, but not as fun as Hollowpoint's party meetup. Then again, I definitely wasn't feeling it so, maybe my view's a bit biased.

    So much fun! From future ice cream, to carousels, and lions speaking ebonese, it was non-stop awesome.

    Are you guys meeting at the zoo first and then eating? I slept in, but I'm like three stops away on the Metro. I just don't want to go and not find anyone! D: (Since I've never seen any of you ever)

    January 26, 2013

    • Steph (.

      I guess I'll just run to the zoo and bump into you all? I'll just improvise it..

    I might be running late. Delays everywhere and a group of idiots blocking the escalator made me miss the train.

    January 26, 2013

      Yeah. It's apparently 20 minutes till the next train. Fml

      Ok so where are you guys leveing your cars

      January 24, 2013

    • Steve

      Confirmed- Cleveland park is the best place to get off the metro: it's the same distance from the zoo as Adams Morgan, except with CP, you're just walking downhill. And when you leave, it's a downhill walk to the AdMo metro.

      January 26, 2013

    Ok so where still on right because I would hate to drive to. Shady Grove Metro

    OK, Weather update on the Zoo
    It seems there is a lot of panic over the snow. As it stands the Zoo is open till 6, though if it is too cold I'm not going to drag everyone around in winter. Everyone should start coming up with contingency plans to do should the zoo prove to be a bust. At 38 people we can afford to split off into groups.

    January 25, 2013

    • The n.

      Well it is DC There's tons of stuff to do

    OK, so my Train arrives in Union Station at 10:18 am on Saturday. Where am I going to meet those who are meeting me there?

    January 24, 2013

    • Andrew

      Cool. I will be sporting my winter grey/white coat and awesome green scarf with pockets...also, there is a picture of me right next to my post

      Hopefully you won't have to endure the same issues I had to today. Amtrak was hell with over three hour delays. That alternative route to get to this area, Jesus that was crazy @_@

      January 25, 2013

    I'm going to the zoo, as long as it's open.

      I would HAT it too if we didn't get together tomorrow. I too am willing to do whatever it TUQUES to go, even if that means if have to FEZ a lot of snow in getting there......... http://images4.wikia....­

    I have some friends staying the night tonight now, so have to play host in the morning. If I can make it I will, but for now I wouldn't plan on me being there. Catch y'all as the next meet up!

    So would anyone be able to get me a ride out of hagerstown without too much trouble?

    January 25, 2013

  • Steph (.

    So, I have political stuff to do this weekend, namely the 26. So what hours is this thing running? From the earliest imaginable hour to the latest imaginable hour. I want to be with you all, and I can, but I need to tailor my hours in advance. So what hours is this thing going on?

    January 23, 2013

  • The n.

    So does anyone know if the parking is free there?

    January 24, 2013

    • Mode

      No, not unless your a FONZ member... though they are bad at actually charging people

      1 · January 24, 2013

  • Mode

    OK guys.. IMPORTANT NOTE!
    All the local restaurants do not split checks very well, if at all. So be sure to bring cash to pay for your food!!!
    Also, the Zoo normally charges for parking, but they are kinda forgetful and many times leave the gate open after closing ours. They will often not charge you.

    January 24, 2013

  • The n.

    Ok just to post it Parking at the Zoo is $16 for the first three hours, and $22 for more than three hours (maximum $22 per day). Parking is free for FONZ members. See map and get driving directions.

    January 24, 2013

  • Johnathan I. T.

    So as some of you know (or you will now lol), there is a legitimate chance of a winter storm this Friday. Whether it is all snow or a mix is not fully known. Snow totals can also vary between now and the time of the storm. Do we have a backup plan just in case things get shut down Saturday cleaning up from the storm?

    Not attending. I find most zoo's boring. I prefer aquariums

    May I snag a ride?

    January 21, 2013

  • ~Alma~ D.

    I might come. I get off work at 3 so I probably wouldnt get there until about 4:30 but with how things have been going lately, I'll either get out late, be stressed to the point where any human interaction will lead me to become more irritated/annoyed/other words that relate to a day getting far far worse, or both.
