After work mall walk -- MLK & more

Hey folks -- daylight savings time starts on sunday, so back to after-work walking! Repost of event from December that I had to cancel:

Our walk will take us from Farragut Square to the mall; along the way we'll visit the Einstein and Martin Luther King memorials, among other things.  Some of our walk will be on the mall, and the rest on city streets.

We'll be walking in the dark towards the end, but there will be plenty of street lights; light or reflective clothes are a good idea.

Einstein:  http://www.nasonline.org/about-nas/visiting-nas/nas-building/the-einstein-memorial.html

MLK: http://www.nps.gov/mlkm/index.htm 

WHERE? Outside Firehook Bakery,[masked]th Street, NW.  This location is a block away from the Farragut North and Farragut West metro stops; it is on the west side of 17th street at Farragut Square.

WHEN? Monday, March 10, 6:00 p.m.  (We'll be leaving promptly at 6:00 so please arrive a little earlier.)

HOW LONG? Approximately 3 to 3 1/2 miles, should take around 1 1/2 hours. 

CANCELLATION POLICY: Heavy rain or thunderstorms will cancel; if the forecast looks bad, I will email those who have signed up.  Check the meet up site before leaving for the hike.

I will email my contact information out to those who have signed up by Wednesday evening.

E-mail Phyllis with any Qs.

    alas - my beer distribution license has been temporarily suspended. I hope y'all have a great hike anyway!

    Hey Jim -- you bringing beer?

      Phyllis, I'll be coming by subway so it would be tricky to carry more than a case. I'll see if I can arrange for a beer truck to follow us as we hike.
