I've been watching the goings-on from my Northeast Blogger friends on Facebook as they organize a Spring blog dinner, and it dawned on me that it has been over a year since we've had a NoVA/SoMD blog dinner.
Well, it's time to rectify that, post-haste!
As much as I really enjoyed The Cajun Experience, I think it's more than obvious that they are ill-equipped to handle a large group, and we need a restaurant so equipped. I'd like to keep the venue to somewhere in the Northern Virginia area, as we have a number of attendees coming from Maryland. I don't think we'd want to go any further than Woodbridge or so.
Obviously, the District is right out...
So, let's get the ball rolling. Who's in for a spring blog dinner? Once we have a general idea who wants to attend we can start hammering out details. I'm thinking mid-April, as the end of March is the kids' spring break and we've got plans, followed by Easter weekend, then NRA Annual meeting. Trying to squeeze a dinner in by March 21st is just too close.
I'm thinking a Saturday night would get the most folks able to attend, so let's start there. Pick a Saturday: April 4th, 18th, 25th. Which works best for everyone? If we have to, we can push into May, but I'm thinking that if we're going that late we should look into a blog shoot, too... ;)
Who's in for the Second Annual NoVA/SoMD Spring Blogdinner?
That is all.
