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.
