Foggy Bottom Lunch (and possible outdoor walking: DEPENDS on weather!)...

Hi guys,

IMPORTANT:

I changed our eating place for Saturday to the Bertucci's Italian restaurant as we HAD to change)...NOW we have a great place and you don't need to worry about wearing layers as much anymore (the Fridays room was unusually hot even when it's cold outside, now we don't have to be there). :) I still will wear layers, in case we still are able to go on our walk and the weather is nice. But, up to you!

BERTUCCI'S is located at 2000 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington DC NW, 20006. Their #:[masked] (they have driving directions on their voicemail if you press option 2). They are BETWEEN 20th and 21st Streets, at a place there with other shops next to it (it almost looks like a townhouse and it is a cute area with many shops inside).

*****We meet AT THE RESTAURANT at 1:30******, BUT if you need help walking from the metro then you NEED TO MEET ME at the Foggy Bottom metro (INSIDE, where you exit with your farecard), BETWEEN 1 and 1:20. I WILL LEAVE FROM THE METRO TO WALK THERE NO LATER THAN 1:20, and I will be waiting there from ONE TO ONE TWENTY.

IF you are meeting me at the metro, then please email me back to let me know this. THANKS! :) It is probably EASIER TO MEET ME AT THE METRO, so that you can MAKE SURE that you are walking the right way. :) 

SEE YOU SOON!!

Noonie

    I posted the pictures!!! :) I love the pix of us walking to the waterfront, and hanging together outside. :) I was glad it didn't rain and only rained when we separated, as a group. :) There are also silly pictures of MH and I wearing silly hats at the Kennedy Center, and many other fun pix! I like all the pix, also some fun restaurant ones. ..I would check the pix out from the first picture, so that you don't miss anything. :) Hugs, Noonie

    Thanks for organizing this meetup. I enjoyed meeting everyone and I hope to see all of you in the near future! Peace...

    Thank you Kan, many people said the weather actually turned out very nice! :) We were able to walk and enjoy the waterfront, and we expected rain, yet we had hours of no rain.... :) You are right that there wasn't much sunshine, but it was still really nice as the weather wasn't cold or hot, it was just right. :)

    October 12, 2013

    • Noonie

      Thank, Quan (Qwan)! Oh, I always knew you were Quan (Qwan) and was NEVER confused by your name...So, you must be talking about someone else??? When I called you "Q" it was only since it's your profile name!! I was being considerate, thinking you wanted to be called by your profile name! Otherwise, I always called you Quan (Qwan)...I'm very careful with names! :) Cheers

      October 14, 2013

    • Noonie

      Oh, and there's another member named "Kan," so I was responding to her! Not you, Quan! :) Maybe that's why you thought I said your name wrong? Maybe you missed that there's another member here named "Kan"! :)

    Thank you guys for all the nice comments about the event!! I had a great time, and was SO GLAD we got to walk outside and be at the waterfront!! It didn't rain until HOURS later, when it was time to go home, anyway! :) Some of us made it to the Kennedy Center free performance. And it was great that the group all stayed together for so many hours and enjoyed the waterfront after our food. You guys are awesome!!! :0) I'll post up pix soon. :)

  • Noonie

    Q, you can go! My # is:[masked]-5875. I tried to RSVP you, but the site won't recognize you when I tried! I'll just put you as my "+1" instead! I am about to leave now guys, so I won't be online anymore for today...We will have FUN, it won't matter if there is a little rain outside or not! :) We'll be indoors and relaxing at Bertucci's! :) There's an ICE CREAM place, AND a BAR, RIGHT NEXT TO IT, as well, if we decide!! :) THEN, IF we see the weather has cleared up, we CAN go to the Waterfront as well! :) If we are out late enough, we might go to the FREE Kennedy Center concert (the FREE Kennedy Center shuttle might still be working, even tho there's a Gov't shutdown, so we can use it for if it rains. :)) SEE YOU ALL SOON! :)

    So far, I know that Kan, Cassandra will be meeting me at the metro between 1 and 1:20 (as well as two others), to walk from Foggy Bottom to the place. If anyone else is meeting us, just remember to email me to let me know so that I can know how many I am expecting. We will leave by 1:20, no matter what. I will wait from 1 to 1:20. My email again is: [masked]

      Sounds good Abeer and Cindy! See you there! :)

      October 11, 2013

  • Noonie

    If it's rainy, we'll enjoy being indoors at the restaurant, with a relaxing glass of wine and our Italian pizza or pasta, or whatever we get. :) We can relax in there. :) I'm sorry guys, that it might rain, but that's why I changed the meetup to possibly just this awesome lunch, instead of the waterfront. :) Anyway, we can enjoy our conversations while eating. We'll have other meetups later, as well...We'll try to still go to the waterfront, and it depends on how people feel, etc.

    Sherif, just as I told you last time, no I won't be able to post an update tomorrow at all while the meetup is taking place as I don't have access to the computer while I am away...So...You will need to call me to ask me if we are going to the Kennedy Center...Can yo please do that? ..I won't be online...Can you please call me or text me tomorrow to find out if we go?

    The FREE Kennedy Center concert goes from 6-7, but doors open there at 5 PM. I am not sure how long I will be able to last past the lunch, but we will see...I have been pretty run down lately...I like the free classical music concerts though. And the Kennedy Center is great. So, as I said the DEFINITE thing about the meetup tomorrow as that we will have LUNCH. THEN, the other stuff is optional and how we feel afterwards...ALSO, ONLY those who were able to RSVP can go...If you want to go and haven't RSVP'd, ONLY if a spot opens up (RE: if someone cancels and you thus see a spot open up)...Thank you and see you all tomorrow. I will only be online tonight and can't be by a computer tomorrow as I'll go very early in the morning to DC for this meetup, to be prepared for if we do things, I want to check it out. thanks!

      Noonie, I won't be able to join for lunch, but I am still interested in the Kennedy center concert, if you end up going please post an update and I can catch up with you there, I will keep the RSVP so I can follow up your updates, but you can put someone else on my spot for lunch.

      October 11, 2013

  • Noonie

    Actually, Yoon Do! I will RSVP you and your friend as two people told me that they might not go!!! So, you CAN go!! BUT, from now ON, this meeetup is CLOSED to new RSVP's unless a spot or two opens..the website would have to allow you to RSVP which it doesn't let now..(so if people are signed up then please don't add on guests that aren't listed as going, etc. etc.). Thanks so much guys! It's a full meetup!!!

    October 11, 2013

  • Noonie

    Yoon Do, thanks for joining. IF someone cancels then you can go..But, for now it is way too full. :( WE wil have other meetups though! Also, I think that someone will cancel...

    October 11, 2013

  • Yoon Do C.

    Hi, happy to be here!
    My name is Yoon Do
    Can I join tomorrow with my friend?

    October 11, 2013

  • Noonie

    Hi guys! If you know you can no longer go tomorrow, then please make sure to change the RSVP...WE HAVE ANOTHER MEETUP coming up and you can just go to that one, or other ones if you can't make this one! :) WE DON'T EVEN KNOW YET if we'll make it the waterfront after our lunch tomorrow, anyway! We will likely if the weather is nice, but it's also up to how people feel!! ALSO, it's better not to have such a large crowd there, anyway. :)
    SO, PLEASE CHANGE RSVP if you know you can't make it, as we also need the restaurant to know the exact number. THANKS SO MUCH! SEE YOU SOON! Noonie

    October 11, 2013

  • Noonie

    Here's my phone number for Saturday, but I will email it out:[masked]-5875....I don't know what happened to some of my posts here, but I wrote that we will meet at Bertucci's at 1:30 and that is the final place! Thank you for being so understanding that I had to make changes at the last minute! I was thinking of all of you with these decisions. :) Sherif, you can just call me to see where we are after lunch and I can't guarantee that we will still be going to the waterfront. It depends on the weather and what people want. I hope we can go though!!! :) Also, the Kennedy Center concert is still there for us for if we want to go. It's FREE. :)

    Hi Nonnie :) I signed up in this nice group a couple of months ago. But until now, I will have the chance to attent my first meet up and finally meet all of you. So, see you then. Cheers :)

    1 · October 8, 2013

    • Noonie

      That's great, Sandra! We look forward to meeting you. :)

      October 10, 2013

  • Noonie

    GUYS!!! Good news!!! You know how I visited Fridays and it isn't like other Fridays as it looked really dirty and had bad ratings (along with the room that didn't have enough air in it)? WELL, I JUST called Bertucci's and they said that with their schedule opening up they CAN FIT ALL OF US THERE!!! SO, we NO LONGER have to worry about Friday's! :) This way, you can also dress the way you like and not worry about the "layers" email, due to that oddly hot room at Fridays. :) SO, it's FINAL that we are eating at Bertucci's now!!!! YAY!!! GREAT!!! It is at a REALLY COOL area near the Foggy Bottom metro..:) That area also has other shops and an ice cream place..It's cool...I'll list everything on the site now (the address and changes.). :) We meet at the restaurant at 1:30, HOWEVER, for the people who WANT TO WALK WITH ME from Foggy Bottom, they can walk with me from the metro and we would meet earlier. I'll email you guys all the info. :) Thanks! Noonie

      Hi

  • Noonie

    Also, there is now a 50% chance of rain...So our hiking and outdoors part is weather-dependent...When we get closer to the date, if the rain is more definite then we will STILL have the meetup, it will just be more about eating in and being indoors...We'll still enjoy each other's company and could still possibly go to the Kennedy Center performance if it rains, as it's indoors, too...If it rains heavily right off the bat though, then I have another place for us to meet that is indoors and we could stay there for hours and enjoy...I'll keep you updated and will keep checking the weather, too! :) See you Saturday!

    October 7, 2013

  • Noonie

    Sorry guys! With the Government shutdown, we CAN'T eat at 3 at the Kennedy Center Cafe restaurant as the doors wouldn't open till 5..This is ONLY due to the Government shutdown!!! I JUST found this out (the Kennedy Center guy I got didn't know that! But I got another person now when I called and he told me this!)...I will TRY To find ANOTHER place that can seat our large group! We can't eat at Tony and Joe's or Sequoia as it is WAAAAY too pricey for me! VERY expensive!! I will see if Farmers Fishers can take our large group...I will be emailing them, and it will take 24-48 hours for them to reply, but I have other restaurants in mind as well...I will get back to you..:)

    October 7, 2013

  • Noonie

    I will let you know where the venue will be...We might be changing from Georgetown, as the group got larger...Thanks for signing up and see you soon...

      Abeer, the date is set. I am back, but I have to catch up on a lot of things. So, I will get back to you guys. I wanted to find another host to host an earlier meetup, but people didn't want to host and especially since I wouldn't have been able to go, so now I have this meetup I am hostingin October. What's good as that people can wait to find out what it will be. I have been very busy with family things and now you know there is a meetup and so thank you for waiting to find out what it will be. I am only one person in charge and now I have many important things to take care of in September. I will be in touch soon. I look forward to meeting you all at this next meetup. Thank you, Noonie
