Global Reddit Meetup Day
has been announced
June 15, 2013.
We'll be having a potluck picnic at Quincy Park @ 1:00 PM!
Please sign up HERE if you can bring food, supplies, or anything else to the event.
This event will be a huge BBQ/Field Day at Quincy Park. It is metro accessible.
There are *NO* alcoholic or illegal substances allowed at this event. Offenders will be beerboarded.
For those 21+, we'll be heading to a bar after the Meetup; Details below.
The event is potluck/donation based. You do not have to do either but it would be greatly appreciated to offset the high cost of this event. This is the fourth annual global meetup day. Last year we had around 350 people(as well being featured on NPR) and it was a great success due to great people.
The organizers will be bringing basic supplies upfront and collecting donations on the day of the event.
Also this year, we're doing a canned food drive with Food For All DC, which is a non-profit organization that provides food to low income home-bound residents in real need. We ask that you bring a can of non-perishable food which we will deliver to them after the event
Please bring food for at least 3 or 4 people. There are a lot of people attending, and we want everyone to be able to eat. If you can't bring food due to other commitments, please consider contributing $$$ so the organizers can purchase supplies as needed.
We do not have the park reserved, so we will have to share some of the facilities with other patrons.
Please be courteous to the other guests at the park.
In addition, please bring pre-cooked foods, we want to reduce grill time, and increase MINGLING time!
Don't be this guy:
If you have any folding chairs, or tables, please bring them! If you wish to help setup, we'll be at Quincy around 11:00 AM.
We're taking a massive group photo at 4 pm. If you take other pictures/video, please upload them here later!

Drinking/Bar Crawl: There is NO drinking at Quincy Park. However, we will be going to O' Sullivan's Irish Pub after the meetup for all sorts of tasty alcoholic concoctions. It's located just a located a few blocks away from Quincy park around Clarendon. We've secured some pretty good drink specials for redditors including discounts on Irish Car Bombs.
Quincy Park (1201 N Quincy St, Arlington, VA) is a short walk from the Virginia Square/GMU Metro, and also has a parking lot and street parking nearby.
Again, sign up HERE!!! to bring food!
