Based on this year's prediction the cherry blossoms should be blooming between the first and second week of April so let's get together and go for a walk around the Tidal Basin on April 12th and experience the beauty of this festival.
We can meet at Shady Grove metro at 10am by 'the help desk' before the escalators, connect to Blue or Orange line at Metro Center then get off at Smithsonian station. It is a short walk to the Tidal Basin.
Another meeting spot is Smithsonian Station at 11a by the exit (street).
We will have lunch around 12 at a nearby café, about 5 minutes walk from the Smithsonian station (Potbelly Sandwich shop); then go for the walk thereafter.
If running late please meet the group at the sandwich shop between 12 and 12:30p. We will leave for the walk at 12:30p.
With your RSVP please say if meeting at Shady grove, Smithsonian station or the sandwich shop.
See you there.
