Just a thought- It would be nice to end at the House of Sweden in Georgetown and meet for drinks, food, and socializing after at Sequoia's on the waterfront next door.


Thoughts on this are welcome.

    Good Morning!

    The forecast says that there maybe storms starting around 2pm.

    Let's go for it!

    Make sure you have your ID, a snack, water, metro card, money, smile, and bring a fun attitude! ;) WHERE TO MEET:

    Meet outside by the escalators at MASSACHUSETTS AVE. & 20TH ST. NW.

    I think some of the volunteers will have balloons.

    I will be wearing a bright green rain jacket and I will have a black umbrella that says London 2012 and has the Olympic symbol on it. I will also have a folder and one side says DCSS MEETUP in red. We will also have some neon colored stickers to help identify the group. From past experience it was difficult enough to keep 4 people together let alone 20 or more. Hopefully this will help.


    No need to text or call...we will try to keep the meetup updated as to where we are.

    I look forward to seeing you!

    one of my friend worked for this event last year, he said the UK embassy alone had almost 10,000 visitors!!! be prepare for the super long line!!!!!!and these European embassies are not really altogether, so it will be quite a hike! i am actually considering to be there earlier so i can visit as many as I can....

    One of the organizer has a family emergency and can't attend.
    We need volunteers to help with the large group. If we can get about 5 volunteers to split the group up into smaller groups, it will be a much better experience for everyone.

    Just a thought- if it works out, it might be nice to end at the House of Sweden and meet for drinks after at Sequioas on the waterfront next door.
    Thoughts on this are welcome.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
