      Agreed. Had such a good time, I'm getting ready to go to the play date.

    September 7, 2013

    • Nikki

      Well, it's not pudding yet, it's still sugar, milk and cornstarch. But, give it a few minutes. Lol

      September 7, 2013

    • Danielle

      I'm here

      September 7, 2013

  • cynthia

    Ok. I will see you.

    September 7, 2013

  • Danielle

    I am on my way now. I have on a black tank and grey shorts. See you there.

    September 7, 2013

  • rahiem f.

    Anybody there yet gonna sneak out of work for a lil bit and join you all.

    September 7, 2013

  • Nikki

    I live nearby & would like to attend. Do I need to bring anything? I can bake a quick (relatively) banana pudding or something.

    September 7, 2013

    • mic

      They have a dessert contest and where I'm from banana pudding is always welcome at any party.

      September 7, 2013

  • Rinna

    Looks like fun. I think I may go!!

    • Me

      I didn't run into u last night ;)

      September 7, 2013

    • Rinna

      I left early...went to another place

      September 7, 2013

  • mic

    Assuming people bring folding chairs. I'm sure it wouldn't hurt to have more games and cards.

    September 7, 2013

  • O.C.

    The guys haven't said this but men typically far outnumber women at this event. I attend the tail end every year and it would be great if half the women on this list actually show up. LOL.

    September 7, 2013

    • Me

      When the after party for the women who can't attend lol

      September 7, 2013

  • rahiem f.

    The park is easy to find...its either right next to a water park or across the street from the water park.

    September 7, 2013

  • Lynn R.

    This is my first meetup. Looking forward to this Sat.!

    September 2, 2013

    • Lynn R.

      Oh man, now I have a conflict and can't make it. I'll keep my eyes open for other events.

      September 7, 2013

  • Monica S.

    Hello and Thanks Danielle! Not sure how crowded it will be, posting a location/landmark for meetup members to find the group would be great.

    September 7, 2013

  • Nick T

    I go every year and helped planned a couple of them.

    September 6, 2013

  • Me

    I gotta work in DC until late! Where the after party at ?

    September 6, 2013

  • Lewis

    is there a specific area we are meeting

    September 5, 2013

  • mic

    I have gone to several NSBE events and they are all pretty friendly. It's not one of those DC parties where people stand on the wall and stare at you, they actually dance and have fun. So get your tickets online or pay at the door.

    September 5, 2013

  • Lisa

    Hello all. This will be my first event. How will I be able to identify others from this group?

    September 4, 2013

    • Danielle

      Hi, I'm not familiar with the location and I'm not part of NSBE, so I will most likely have to post a location or what I'm wearing, once I get there and check out the area.

      1 · September 5, 2013

  • Arlan B.

    Sounds like fun! Won't be able to make it until 1pm, though. Will there be a way to identify or find the meet up members? Hope to see everyone there.

    September 4, 2013

    • Danielle

      Hi, I'm not familiar with the location and I'm not part of NSBE, so I will most likely have to post a location or what I'm wearing, once I get there and check out the area.

      September 5, 2013

  • Danielle

    Hello all, be sure to list "Danielle-Meetup" under how you found out about the event. This lets them know we are joining from the meetup, not looking to pay for membership. :-)

    • Valerie J.

      where should we meet the group once we arrive...?

      September 4, 2013

    • Danielle

      Hi Valerie, I'm not familiar with the location and I'm not part of NSBE, so I will most likely have to post a location or what I'm wearing, once I get there and check out the area.

  • Jay

    We need to break out the Meetup name tags!!! Who has them? Lol

    September 4, 2013

    • Danielle

      Yikes, I didn't know there were name tags. The NSBE president said he only confirmed 5 people actually registered from this group.

      September 5, 2013

  • Sharonda B.

    Or Do we have the option of contributing food/drinks instead of cash?

    September 3, 2013

    • Danielle

      You do have to register to attend. The registration fee, I assume, is paying for all the food & drinks NSBE is purchasing for the event.

      September 5, 2013

  • sabrina s.

    Should I bring anything?

    August 30, 2013

    • Danielle

      Anybody who is registered can enter the Dessert Competition as long as they indicate they would like to participate on the registration form. Feel free to even bring cards or games.

      September 5, 2013

    Is there anything you need me to bring?

    Is it $10 dollars to get in the competition or to attend the cookout.

  • O.C.

    You can bring a dessert for the competition or a pack of cards (just in case). Once youin register, you dont have to bring anything but yourself.
