    Hi all! How did Delmarva work out? I'm crossing my fingers that it was a pleasant evening for all :)

    So, I just looked on Delmarva's website, and it says that trivia night is on Thursdays. However, I've been to trivia night before there, and it was always on a Friday. Someone able to call and confirm?

    Also, I highly recommend the chicken fingers and German pretzels (served with beer cheese sauce, YUM)!

      So I just called and was told that there is a cafe side where we can have a table that does have to participate in Trivia. He also said that reservations were not necessary.

    Probably be a little late.

    To be honest. I have a problem with the Lakeside Bungalow. Inside it is hellishly loud for intelligent conversation. Outside the cigar smoke sends me home with asthma. It was Rick who thought this was a great meeting place and we have history wit A) LOUD and B) uncomfortable otherwise. PLEASE someone suggest a better venue. I am out of potions.

      Couple more suggestions that I will throw out, though I don't know which town is central for everyone: M&S Grill in Reston, Vapiano in Reston, Dogfishhead in Fairfax, The Green Turtle in Sterling

      Vapiano was very sadly eliminated because it became so loud no one could enjoy a conversation, thanks a bunch for the other suggestions. This has been a long hard journey, and we' ll find out tonight if we have to keep moving. I've always wanted to try out the Dogfishhead....
      See you all tonight.

    Tiller thing canceled. Sheesh. Keep the Lakeside going. Kristen was saying she redirected to this. I will as well. From too many options to this one:)

    Hey guys - I canceled the Travinia meetup on this date - I think some folks are going to the Dr. Tiller thing at the UU church in Sterling that night, if that interests you! Hope to see y'all soon! :)

      Aly - Katrina noted that the dates for Travinia and Lakeside overlap moving forward. Can you and Gloria correct that?

      Never mind - looks like you corrected it:) Come out on Thursday.

    I have other plans, unfortunately. I would have loved to see everyone!

    Gloria, I think Lakeside is great in good weather, it's just tough if we have to sit inside because it gets loud. That's my opinion, at least. I'll be there!

  • Gloria C.

    So let's cancel this again since the Travinia meeting has moved to the 3rd week of the month and no one really likes this venue anyhow. Comments are welcome

    Gloria, did you see that there is a "Hang out at Travinia" scheduled for the same date? Perhaps you and Alysen can coordinate?
