Geeks on Ice

A stunning new public park on the site of the historic Washington Canal in the heart of DC’s Capitol Riverfront neighborhood.  Canal Park will transform an abandoned and contaminated bus parking lot into a sustainable and green neighborhood gathering place and destination for the entire city.

After Skating - lets warm ourselves and console each others most embarrassing moments at one of the many bars along Navy Yard.

    Are there skate rentals available?

    January 18, 2014

    • Mikey B

      If not, I think the RSVP number would drop by 50 :)

    As one who's made this mistake a few times before, I strongly urge everyone to wear tall socks. Skates, especially rental skates, can really chafe your ankles, and that's just no fun.

    Just a heads up that Farragut North and Dupont Circle stations are closed this weekend and shuttle bus service will be operating between Woodley Park and Metro Center.

    If you're like me and have to go past those stations, add extra time to your trip.

    will come if my knees heal up by then, as I anticipate spending a lot of time falling.

    1 · January 14, 2014

    • Lily

      With 64 RSVPs, you won't be able to fall. It'll be so crowded, you'll just lean onto someone. ;)

    does anyone live near alexandria, and would not mind giving me a ride to this or to metro? as my car will be in the shop, and will not be able to find a ride

      I forgot it was my Dad's birthday and had to cancel. So sad, I know :( But, I'll be hosting a new board games and beer soon enough.

    • Elisheba W.

      Would people still be up for doing something in DC? Like maybe games and drinks at Boardroom or H St. Country Club ? Haven't been to Boardroom, but heard it's fun.

  • Hilario D.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
