MongoDB is on such a growth spurt that I honestly think there is enough interest out there for a DC-centered MongoDB meetup to run concurrently as well. Nothing against CustomInk/Nathen and the FANTASTIC job they do and should/will continue to. I just think the "market" can support both. DC is tough for NoVAers and vice versa. The really dedicated will attend both.
Let's just at least please make sure that they are not on the same night. :-)

Getting out to meetups in Tyson's from DC is definitely a haul for those of us without cars... usually a combo metro+zipcar endeavor (making it a bit spendy as well for the car rental). This isn't unique to Mongo. That said, I totally get that for folks outside of DC proper, coming into the heart of the city during rush hour can be similarly daunting.

I would go much less frequently to a DC venue. Obviously, I'm just one person, but Tysons is much more convenient for me--and Custom Ink is a nice space. If it were significantly bigger than Custom Ink, that would be another thing, because there have been a few waiting lists--but I think the limit has been around 100 there as well. Just my point of view.

@Nathen and other MongoDC members are you guys interested in changing the meetup venue to be in DC and not VA? We, Logik, host the monthly DCRug meetup (http://www.meetup.com/dcruby/) at our office in DC. We also happen to be BIG mongoDB users.
We're @ 1400 I Street, right above McPherson Metro stop. The space can hold about 100 or so comfortably.
Let me know if any of you are interested: [masked]
