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/
