Take the metro and bring in the New Year with games at the Crystal City Shops in the open area called "The Landing." We'll start at 4 pm, but feel free to wander in whenever you'd like. The only requirement is you have to like to laugh, and you can't care if you win or lose. :)
Market Basket (right across from The Landing) sells cold beer and wine and will be open until 8pm. I'll bring a cooler. There are many eateries in the mall from which to get food until 8pm and you can get take-out from Hamburger Hamlet and King Street Blues after that.
I'll bring a collection of party and board games, including Telestrations, Say Anything, Time's Up, Culture Pop, Cards Against Humanity, Shadow Hunters, Saboteur, Love Letter, Discworld.... Please feel free to bring anything you might like to play. This is a fun group of non-competitive people who play everything from silly party to hard-core strategy games. First time gamers are very welcome! It's a wonderful opportunity to learn some fun games with very nice people.
The Landing is a five minute indoor walk from the Crystal City metro. Parking after 4:00 pm is free in the garage. Enter the garage for 1750 Crystal Drive on 18th Street and take a ticket. (You'll need this to exit, but there's no charge). Drive straight until you have to turn left. Park near the elevators and take them up to Level S. "The Landing" will be the large open seating area in front of you when you exit the elevator.
If that parking garage is full, exit the garage and turn left on 18th and left again on Crystal Drive. A second parking garage is located on Crystal Drive between 18th Street and 15th Street.
