January 2014 - Monthly Get-Together (brunch)

  • Jan 5, 2014 · 10:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Ring in the first weekend of 2014 with your fellow Gen X'ers with a casual, yummy brunch outing! Join the zip line adventure taking place the day before on Saturday and then come out Sunday for some good conversation and a relaxing, delicious brunch... with perhaps a mimosa or bloody mary... or two. A great opportunity to meet/continue to get to know cool, new friends... and fun people to travel with. What better way to spend the first Sunday of the new year - getting to know new friends is a splendid, fitting priority to start off 2014. :)

As for brunch, we'll be brunching at a popular, highly-rated farm to table restaurant that opened just a couple years ago. They prepare from scratch, the freshest, highest quality local sourced ingredients from Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania farms. They also offer $12 for unlimited mimosas during brunch.

Optionally, after brunch we can walk a few blocks to Eastern Market to browse around this neighborhood institution (for more than 136 years) with its local farm-fresh produce and handmade arts & crafts, which includes the infamous Flea Market only open on Sundays 10am-5pm. The flea market is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year... and was voted one of the best flea markets in the world in a Huffington Post Poll.

After the hustle-bustle and frenzy of the holiday season, the first weekend in January may be a good time to take a break and enjoy a relaxing, leisurely Sunday morning social outing (as well as a fun, zip line adventure the day before).

The restaurant is metro, bus and parking accessible - one block from Eastern Market metro stop, Circulator/Metro bus stop out front, and pretty good street parking availability.

Since this meet-up is for brunch and we have 10:30am reservations, only RSVP if you can arrive by 10:30am... please be on time.

Also, please only RSVP if you can actually make it (have a change in plans, just un-RSVP). Closing date/time for RSVPs is Jan 2nd, Thursday COB... I'll need to give enough notice to the restaurant to ensure they have enough space for our group.

Hope to see you there!
