    Yes, it is in Mt Vernon, Va, at the southern end of the GW Memorial Pkwy. Here is a Google link: http://tinyurl.com/6t3hk4t. You can see the parking lots on the satellite view. It is about 40 miles (1 hr) from Gaithersburg, and about 7 miles south of the Beltway.

    If you would like a ride, contact me directly ([masked]). I can do a pick-up from Grosvenor Metro Kiss & Ride at 7:45 am.

    I assume then that the time listed is wrong, and not at 7 p.m. but then at 9 a.m., correct?
