Awesome start to the group and it was great to meet some amazing people.
I'm sorry but I cannot make it. Sorry for the late response.

Dear Globetrotters!First of all, I would like to say that I am positively surprised to have received so much positive feedback regarding the group. Many thanks!It seems that more people than I would have dreamed of have rsvp'd for this upcoming Saturday's meetup.Caribou Coffee has enough seats however I am not able to reserve one of their larger tables. I am afraid that on Saturday morning it will be quite busy (not counting our group). Would any of you have suggestions on alternative locations which can hold bigger capacities?
Many thanks for your help!!! I am still quite new in the States and any feedback is appreciated to make this meetup happen!!!
Kind regards and see you all soon!

Hi Celine, my experience has been that in reality only a fraction of the folks who signed up will actually show up. That Caribou Coffee is a very good location and thankfully not a Starbucks. :-) Most coffee shops will be petit in size. Caffe Amouri in Vienna is a really great coffee shop, but it is also quite small.

Hi Celine, there is a larger coffee shop in Annandale on Little River Turnpike - Le Matin de Paris. The coffee is not as good as Caribou but it is spacious and could easily accommodate the number of people in the group. There's also Shilla's bakery down the street which has better baked goods. Don't know if you were still looking but thought I'd offer a tip, if needed. There's always Corner Bakery, too. Lots of those around.
Dear Sarah! Thank you for your advice. I think it is a little late now to change the venue though. However, for the next meetups i'll definitely keep your suggestions in mind.
I agree with Sam's comment below. The Caribou Coffee is a good location; let's just see how this first meetup goes in terms of numbers attending. In other meetups, sometimes the leader gets there a little ahead of time and is able to secure a table for the group.
I agree. Let us see how this goes re: attendance. See you saturday!

Sorry can't make tomorrow. I volunteer as a Smithsonian docent every other Saturday, so will be giving tourists a tour instead!Any other meet ups planned?
It also sounds like if it's going to take place over a 2-hour timeframe that people will come and go. I don't think we'll all be sitting there for 2 hours.
I won't be able to attend the meeting this Saturday as my model railroad club has an open house, but usually it is a conveninet time for me on weekends.
It's a long way for me, but I'll try to be there. Are you always meeting in Virginia?

Marketta, I live in Silver Spring too! Maybe we can carpool to events?
Bonjour Celine! I would love to join your coffee group but I have no nanny in the AM - I read below that you plan to organize other sessions - and please, keep me posted! Would love to meet you all!
This Saturday is unfortunately not good for me.
Would like to be there but weekends are generally not good for me. Will there also be meetups scheduled during the week?

This upcoming saturday is our first meeting. Planning will be different for other meetings and hopefully you will be able to join!
I cannot attend anything on Saturday mornings...a workday for me...Sat. afternoon or Sunday afternoons are good.
This saturday is our first meeting and hopefully we'll schedule the next one on a more opportune time for you!
I just found your meet up group, and am happy to join in. Unfortunately I am out of town this weekend. Will try for the next one! Have fun!

Hello:I cannot do this Saturday. Please let me know the next one.
I'd love to join but have already signed up for a hike Sat. morning. Please keep me informed for your next get together. Bob
I would normally love to join...that's a great time and place for me to meet; I am almost always available. But that weekend I will be out of town..

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
