The Thursday night game in Merrifield Virginia is at Five Guys Burgers & Fries in Merrifield. It is on Gallows Road in the Yorktowne Center in the space that was Grevey's Sports Bar for many many years. This is easy to reach from I495 if you exit the beltway at the Arlington Blvd. and Merrifield going west and immediately exit onto Gallows Road north. Then the first right into Yorktowne Center which also has an Aldi supermarket. Not busy on weeknights. Well lit with classic rock playing overhead. Plenty of parking and open till 10 pm, which is why we left Panera Bread as they cut their hours back to 9 pm closing.
Hopefully this will better accommodate our Virginia players and other players who wish to come by car. This location is roughly a farther from the Dunn Loring Metro station on the Orange Line. If anyone travels to the meetup by metro, one of us will drop you back at the station after the games.
Some people have expressed interest in playing in Fairfax. Lets set up another game that repeats every 3 weeks at Fairfax Town Center. Look for the group with cards somewhere in the center tables. We play alomost exclusively double deck pinochle. All levels of play are welcome from beginner to expert. We will teach and coach new players.
Because people want to start playing earlier, we will start the first game about 6 pm. We play 300 point games so the second game will likely start just after 7 pm. Spring is almost here. Let's play some cards.
Join us for Pinochle on Wednesday night's in Bethesda. The food is good and so are the desserts. Card players of all level are welcome. We play primarily 4-handed double deck Pinochle but other variants are have been tried on occasion. Games go from 6 pm until 10 pm.
Please don't wait until the last minute to RSVP.
