Blog Dinner Update...

Had lunch with Old NFO yesterday, and he lit a fire under me reminded me that we needed to move on the blog dinner. We discussed possible dates, and one that worked for both of us was Saturday, June 6th. That's a little over three weeks, so it should be enough advance warning.

So, that leaves us with location. I'm thinking somewhere in the general NoVA area, as we have folks that would like to participate coming from MD (and further north, even). It doesn't necessarily mean we have to stick to the greater DC area (although I refuse to go into the District, period). I'd prefer to avoid MD if at all possible, sorry folks in that area.

Now, Murphy's Law has scouted out The Cajun Experience and testifies that they now have a large outdoor eating area. That matches what NFO, MBtGE, Stretch, and Wandering Neurons and I found last year. If we'd like to try that again, only in a larger venue where we can mingle, I'd be up for that. Otherwise, let's come up with a restaurant, or a general location, and finish these plans up quick.

It's been too long - let's eat!

That is all.

I don't want to be in Maryland, either, but I'm stuck here for the time being. The Cajun Experience is OK by me if the outside area will accommodate everyone. Is it covered in case of rain? The food was great, the company even better, so I'm definitely up for it.

D-Day? Excellent!

Wandering Neurons said...

I'm game, though something less far west is better for me. Something in Arlington or Tysons Corner area?
(Now blogging!)

Murphy's Law said...

In for the win! (And advocating on behalf of those who live even farther west...)

Well, a flight to Baltimore may not be the best choice now. Anybody there have any thoughts?

Maybe a liesurely drive would do it.
Put me down as a probable for now.

SIGH! THE Wife is heading down to Myrtle Beach on the 5th for her Annual Get-Together with her Siblings, so guess who gets to stay home and take of the Dogs, Mow the Lawn, Guard the House against Cleveland Rioters because of some Cops Shooting "Innocent Politically Correct People?"

Have a Cold One for me!

Brendan and I are in tentatively. I have to work the day before and so does he, so I still need to find out if he'd be willing to go down there that night or early the next morning. Any chance of a get together at a range earlier that day or on Sunday the 7th?

Glenn B said...

What town is that restaurant in?

Old NFO said...

I'm in! :-)

Murphy's Law said...

Glen,

If you come, I'll get you on the range.
