Anybody in or near DC up for a dinner meetup in May? dlbpharmd will be at a conference in Rockville and has a night free on Monday, May 11th.

I'll be annoying people on FB, too... Twisted Evil

Absolutely no promises, but I will look into whether I can engineer a reason to visit our IAD data centers right around then...

Please note that I won't discuss such on FB, since I use my RL identity there and it would be impolitic to mention such a brazenly unethical pretext for a expensed junket. Really, I do have productive reasons for going, as well as personal ones.

Since the evening that ali said that dlb had free in the area was Monday, 11 May, can you pencil in the date as a tentative until specifics of place and time become more settled?

If I pull this trip off, I will be based in the Herndon VA area, but pretty well motivated to make it wherever the event will be...both for those I've already met and those I have yet to meet.

I'll be staying in Rockville, MD. Perhaps someone who knows the area could suggest an acceptable venue? Somewhere with good food, a good selection of beer, etc.

Rockville's not my turf -- that would be more on Cail's side of the metropolis. But I can ask around if it comes to that.

Depends on everyone's taste and budget. There are literally hundreds of restaurants in the Rockville area. The 11th is a Monday, so the crowds shouldn't be too bad.

Give me some idea of what y'all have in mind and I'll see if I can find something that works for everyone.

Excellent! Cool

DLB's gonna have a per diem, I expect, so he can pick up the tab. Right? Twisted Evil

But seriously, folks: midrange maybe, price-wise? And not too loud, so we can hear each other...

Sadly, I don't have a per diem on this trip. Wink I'm getting reimbursed for the flight, and the hotel is being comp'd.

Here's my suggestion. It's about 5 miles north of Rockville, but it's right off the highway (270) so it's easy to get in and out of. We haven't eaten there yet (it just opened), but it would appear to check all the boxes.

With it being new, we'd want to do one of their "private parties" maybe, or at least have reservations. Unless it's just Don and I (which is fine).

Take a look and let me know what y'all think.

Looks good to me! Mr. Green

Reserving a room might require a credit card guarantee. I'd suggest seeing how many folks we have before we go that route.

It appears that any group larger than 9 needs to go the "private party" route. We'll see what we need to do once we get a semi-decent headcount.
