the food court (basement level) of the ballston mall
-- it's metro accessible (ballston metro stop in arlington)
-- you can walk to it from the ballston metro without ever going outside by walking through alta vista towers and the NSF foundation walkways. 
-- it's free. 
-- if you want to eat and drink, you can and there's tons of options since it's a food court, but there's absolutely no obligation to buy food/drink if you don't want to. 
-- there's always plenty of room for meetings like this. 
-- no permission is required from ballston mall management.

We knew this day might come, but now it is official. Renovations at the Clarendon Barnes & Noble will take away all currently unused space at the store. Which means there will be no meeting space for us (or anyone else).

Our store contact tried to wrangle us some space in another area of the store, but there just won'd be any way to make it work, at least not in the short term.

So...we're looking for a new home - for the summer at least.

If you have any ideas, please post them here and we'll look into them. We're trying to find space that is Metro accessible and free.

We could end up returning to a coffee shop environment where attendees are silently expected to buy a drink or snack, and that would be fine, but to go to a full service restaurant may be impractical.

July 7th will be our 183rd and final meeting at B&N - let's hear those creative ideas about a new home!
