I thought it would be fun to go to Murphy's Irish Bar in Alexandria, Va. on July 3rd since the next day is a holiday. It is a few blocks from the King Street Metro. There is a free circulator bus that goes from the metro down King Street. I'm also having my group come to. I think the two groups should be able to socialize well together. Only RSVP on one event. No need to RSVP if you are not going. Why not come out for some good drinks, good food, and good conversation.
