Re: [django-district] Telecommuters?

From: Joshua "jag" G.

Based on the various responses, we're kinda all everywhere. And Metro
accessible seems to be a priority. So I'll throw two places out there
and if anybody feels strongly one way or another, that should narrow
it down.

1) Bourbon Coffee -- 21st and L in Northwest - a couple blocks from
Foggy Bottom/GMU - http://www.yelp.c...­
2) Northside Social - Fairfax Drive and Wilson Blvd - one block from
Clarendon - http://www.yelp.c...­

Both have excellent coffee (NoSo actually has Counter Culture). Both
have WiFi, but if this becomes a more popular, regular thing I have no
issues getting a Clear 4G account to bring our own connection. Please
respond with date/time preferences and location thoughts.
