    Yes, as I said, this happens at the Phillips a lot....but some kind of identifying tag would have gone a long way to minimize this issue. Thanks for your reply

    I know this happens at the Philips a lot, but I never found the group. 5:15 is a really early start time for people who have regular-hour jobs, and because there were no meetup name tags I never caught up to the group. They don't have to be the goofy red meetup tags, but maybe a specific color paper dot (with an adhesive back, like a sticker) to make it easier to identify the group. In my case, between entry fee, a glass of wine, and metro fare I spent over $20 and only made one new friend (randomly, not in meetup).

      Thanks for the Feedback, Jenna. This is one of the most difficult venues to put a plan in place that works for all, as people arrive at different times and there are events occurring at different times so the group is constantly moving. In some areas the signal coverage is bad as well .. However your points are well takes as we constantly try to learn and improve from previous events.

    Plan is to meet in the cafe 5:15, head to the music room for a little "cheer" (beer, wine) + music by 5:30, then over to the auditorium to watch dance starting at 6:30. Museum is open until 8:30PM.
    And if you have been thinking about becoming a member of the Phillips, now is the time. Van Gogh "Repetitions" starts next week and membership = members' only previews next Thursday and Friday to beat the crowds.

      Finally purchased my long postponed membership to Phillips ! Can't wait for the upcoming events. Since during the last event members came in at different times, making it difficult to join with the group, Please use the time schedules/event locations that Meredith has listed to catch up with the group. Phone reception is dicey here, so at times messaging or posting comments cannot be relied upon.

    I will be heading back from a late afternoon appointment in Baltimore and I'm not 100% sure I'll make it on time. I'd better change to no. Sorry

    I will likely not get to The Phillips until 6:00 p.m., will head straight to the Carpathia Folk Dance performance!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
