Geek Girls Game Day Pot Luck - Fairfax

Let's enjoy the outdoors for a change! As of Saturday 5/17/2014 at 3 PM, The weather report is predicting Sunday's weather to be about 68 degrees, mostly sunny with a light breeze (10 MPH), and 0% chance of rain.  It's perfect!  My apartment community has a GORGEOUS outdoor patio area that I rarely see anyone using. It has tables, comfortable chairs, and sofas in both the sun and covered shade. It's a pretty upscale spot and has a water fountain, fire pit, and stainless steel barbecue.  It looks ideal for chatting and gaming alike.

Photos of the Patio can be seen here:

We'll bring a few of the social games out with us like Taboo, Cards against Humanity, dixit, and word whimsy. But mostly we'll just enjoy the potluck!

 

PARKING: Park anywhere you want.  There should be plenty of parking right next to the patio area.  The development has all private streets and there is usually plenty of parallel parking.  There's also a few spots before the entrance to the garage labeled "visitor parking".  Do not park in the garage (you need a remote to enter, but don't follow anyone in).  Do not park in the circle at the front of the building, which is labeled "leasing office" or "new residents" or something like that.

 

In the unlikely event of bad weather like rain or unbearable hotness, we will default to Shanin's apartment. (Many thanks to Shanin for being the backup).

 

 

****************************
Ladies, let's get together for some games and snacks!  Going forward, Geek Girls Game Day/Night will be a reoccurring monthly event and held in a central location in Northern VA.


Also, as part of the "Geek Girls" series, we will be scheduling  some non-gaming events like movies at a theater, Happy Hour, dinner and drinks, local fairs and festivals, and anything fun we can think of.  Don't be shy about suggesting events!

 For gaming events, please bring a food or snack item with you, to share with the group, or a couple of dollars to add to the meetup collection jar.  If you are going to bring food to share, please post the item in the comments section so we can avoid overlapping.


ATTENDANCE:  Geek Club's attendance policy applies to this event.  Basically, change your RSVP 24 hours in advance if you will not be attending.  The policy can be seen at http://www.meetup.com/Geek-Club-Alexandria/pages/Attendance_Policy/

See you there!

    I'll probably bring some Chex Mix or something for us to munch on. And I might be a bit late, I'm not sure

    Ladies, it's time to let us know what food/drink item you think you will be bringing. You can always change your mind later, but this will help prevent duplicate items. I will bring a couple of 2 liter bottles of soda like coke or Pepsi. I will also bring a gallon or two of filtered water since we will be outside.

    Okay if I come an hour or so late? I've got other plans that afternoon already, but this sounds like a lot of fun.

    May 12, 2014

    • Stacy

      Absolutely! See you there :)

      Okay, I'll be a bit more than an hour late, but I expect to bring something that involves both chocolate and sugar.

    Ladies, I just added some photos of the patio area. Sorry for the delay, I was having trouble getting them to upload earlier in the week. You can see the photos here http://www.meetup.com/Geek-Club-Alexandria/photos/21941482/

    I can't go anymore! My sister and niece are in town and want to go to the Ren fair that day!

    May 17, 2014

  • Jessica

    Shoot!!! Completely forgot I have an appointment in MD. I won't be able to make it until about 3:30 - 3:45. If that's too late I can change my RSVP so another geek girl can have my spot.

    May 14, 2014

    • Stacy

      Jessica, that's fine. See you Sunday!

      May 16, 2014

  • Crystal

    I'm saying yes for now because my Sunday is open, but my sister is in town---so I *might* have to change my RSVP to no later if my family decides we're doing something.

  • Beth V.

    Is there anything special we should bring? Booze? Can I bring my puppy? It'll be fun to meet people

    May 14, 2014

    • Stacy

      Hi Beth! This is a potluck, so you are welcome to bring an alcoholic drink, food item, or a couple of dollars for the meetup jar. But, it would probably be best to leave your puppy at home. Thanks!

    Sorry but I'm graduating on that day.
