Madam's Organ -Best $5 Blues in DC

2/28 Update:

Shashi is going to host on Saturday, I'm still attending, but am covering my bases in case I'm running late as I'm coming straight from another engagement. I hope to make it by 8:00-8:15 pm for dinner. He will show up by 7:30 pm to greet the folks who rsvp's for dinner. We should be on the first floor large front table on the left after you pass the bar and go up the half flight of stairs. See you soon! -Toby

******************************

A bunch of you have been asking me when the next trip to Madam's will be. Here it is, I haven't seen this blues band before (Biscuit Miller and The Mix), but this venue only books good bands from my experience, and cover charge is always $5. They have a new website, where you can read a blurry newspaper clipping describing how the owner, Billy Duggan, had to fight to come to open the joint, including having a hit man hired from El Salvador to kill him by the previous owner!

They take dinner reservations for groups of 6 or more, so if enough folks commit to going a bit earlier, we could probably score that front table or two to be able to watch the band from up above the small dance floor. Post a message if this would interest you so I know if we might have enough interest.

    Thanks everyone for coming, we had a great turnout even with Meet Up being down. And 17 out of 23 from us and another 10 from an int'l group sat with us so we took up half the first floor tables. Hope everyone had a good time!

    Last call for dinner, I believe these folks are coming, Karen +1, Nutan +1, Rezaur, Shashi, Johanna from another group, and me makes 8. Shashi will host, in case I get delayed and my cell is[masked]-3344. We should have the first table on the left of the stairs past the bar on the first floor. Look forward to seeing and meeting folks in a few hours!

    I've made a dinner reservation for 8 people for 8:00 pm, have asked for the front two tables. Please update by Thursday if you'd like to join for dinner, or if you previously said you would join dinner and will no longer so we can plan accordingly. Looking forward to a great night with you all. For dinner I'm counting: Karen +1, Nutan, Thao, Shashi, Tammy, Danielle, and me.

    Anybody who ISN'T going for dinner interested in carpooling? I'm thinking of heading in around 7-7:30ish? I'm happy to drive, just hate driving in all by myself....

    I'm bummed, but I caught a cold so I'm going to skip tonite. It frees up a spot for dinner, Rezaur! Have fun without me, everyone!

    A friend from Vienna is now available to join us for dinner. I'm hoping we can add 1 for dinner. Thanks!

    February 28, 2014

    • Toby

      Nutan, should be fine. I'm sure we can squeeze one more in, and with this many, I think at least one no show or late cancellation is likely. See you tomorrow!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
