Socializing, And Stuff Like That

As previously mentioned, a couple of weeks ago, we’re doing a couple of get-togethers in the Northern Virginia area to celebrate the smiting of the Dread Pro Se Litigant Brett Kimberlin and whatever else needs celebrating while drinking the beverages of choice, eating sundry nibblements, and having actual face to face conversations. Crazy, right? Anyway, the first of these will be this Wednesday, the 27th of August, at Alexandria’s RockIt Grill, four blocks from the King Street Metro. There’s allegedly parking behind the bar off S. West Street, and of course parking on the street. Me, I’m taking the Metro unless I get a lift from someone. If you plan on being there, please drop me an e-mail so that I can ask for a large enough space for our party. Start time for the Pre-Smittypalooza Midweek Knees-Up & Happy Hour will be 5 PM though I don’t expect most folks to actually show up until 6, what with rush hour. Happy Hour runs from 3-7; wifi is available for those of you feeling antisocial.

A couple of weeks later, on Friday, September 12, to be specific, we’re going to do it again, this time in Herndon at Jimmy’s Old Town Tavern, far far away from any Metro stations. Free parking is available in the municipal lot across the street, Happy Hour is from 4 to 8, and I see no reason not to start at 4, especially if we want to avoid the DJ. They also advertise a Friday Fish Fry special if you like that sort of thing; it’s certainly the only one I’ve seen featuring pierogies and kielbasa. Should be interesting. Again, RSVP so I know how much space to stake out.

    You mention August 12, do you mean September 12, given it is already almost two weeks past August 12?

    I assume you mean Sept 12 unless you’re driving Doc Brown’s DeLorean, and if that’s the case ill be asking you for a ride

    I assume it will be socializing, not socialism.

  • JadedByPolitics

    I was going to comment on that…heh.

    Ok my dears, Wednesday is a no go for me but Friday SEPTEMBER 12 I will see your faces at Jimmys!

    So I take it you are “tagged” if you have a lap dance?

    This is why Alberta abandoned the Canadian version of Common Core.

    BS in a thong for BK?

  • Wombat_socho

    You are correct, sir! I have a leftover Marvel No-Prize around the burrow someplace…

  • Wombat_socho

    I denounce all of you for exploiting our GLBTWTFMOGBBQ comrades.

  • Wombat_socho

    This is a correct assumption. Everybody’s paying for their own booze & chow, because we have capitalism here, damn it!

  • Wombat_socho

    They have laws against that kind of thing in Alexandria, and old-fashioned Southern cops to enforce them.

  • Quartermaster

    Weren’t they meant for exploitation?

  • Wombat_socho

    That would be the sequel, “Shock Treatment”.

  • Tanuki Man

    Herndon? All right. You’re talking neck of the woods. I’ll see you there.
