Around the World Embassy Tour Meetup Part Dos

I hosted this last year and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves, so why not do it again ^_^

Basically, we go around DC and check out the 40+ embassies that are participating and learn more about the countries and their culture along with meeting some of your fellow DC redditors(You can find more information about the event here: http://www.culturaltourismdc.org/things-do-see/calendar/event/around-world-embassy-tour-0). There'll be free food, drinks(some of the alcoholic kind - remember to bring your IDs), free stuff, dancing, and overall a great time will be had.

Afterwards, we can go somewhere to chill, eat and/or drink from all the festivities and as always, if you have any ideas of what you want to do, feel free to put any ideas on the comments section.

Until then, see you guys there!

    Thanks to everyone that come out today, old vets and newbies, and hope you all had as much fun as I did. If you feel inclined to more embassy touring, I'm also hosting the EU Embassy meetup next Saturday.

    Hope to see you all at future events ^_^

    Metro not working as normal has thrown off the timeline for my plans for the day. I wouldn't be able to make it to my event later today on time. I was so looking forward to it and meeting everyone. Hope to meet you all at the next event. Enjoy!

    May 4, 2013

    • Chip V.

      Aww, that's unfortunate. Hopefully, we'll see you at future events!

    Hey all,

    I hope everyone's excited for the event just as much as I am. Even though the event itself doesn't start until 10 AM, we probably should meet up at Dupont Circle around 9 AM - 9:15 AM either at the Panera Bread or the Starbucks closeby. To reach me, my phone number is[masked]

    See you all on Saturday :)

      What does this mean? Is it a joke?

      May 3, 2013

    • Mariah

      Yes joke: David misspelled casual as causal, and the 'opposite' of causal is correlational.

    I don't know why I didn't ask this earlier, but does all this cost?

    May 3, 2013

    • Chip V.

      Good guy Mike strikes again :)

      May 2, 2013

  • Alexander B.

    So how does this work? I've never done this before. Both the embassy tour and one of these meet up things.

    May 1, 2013

    • Chip V.

      You come, you meet new, cool, like-minded people, you check out embassies and you have fun. Nothing fancy :)

    Open Embassy weeks are awesome. I went last year- ate, drank, saw the beautiful embassies, and learned a lot. The international week is less crowded than the European one when the lines are incredibly long. Here is the European link for the week after:

    Did u get to meet Borat at the Kazhakstani embassy?

    April 4, 2013

  • Bladen

    My experience last year was the International open house was infinitely better than the Euro one. The smaller countries work harder to please you. Kazhakstan was absolutely overjoyed to see me and bribed me with chocolate, lonely planet guides, and as much free swag as I could carry.

    The ambassador for Botswana practically kept us hostage in the embassy conference room as she went on and on about how amazing the country was.
