So the weekend of April 6th there are a few cool events happening.

The Washington DC Auto Show is happening from the 5th to the 14th
https://www.washingtonautoshow.com/
Tickets are $12 and the metro will run us about $7 round trip.

Karin has a Roller Derby Bout the 6th tickets are $15

We may attend the after party at Urban BBQ nearby to eat bbq and have beers, mingling with skaters optional.

Anyone who comes down is welcome to hang out at my place if they didn't like derby last time, or don't care about pretty/fast cars.

If this weekend has any major conflicts we can punt to the weekend of April 13th but we'll need to pick one soon so get your conflicts posted in here soon if you can.

You guys would be welcome down Thursday evening for a longish weekend of board games and fun events.

I think the April 6th weekend is better for me, but I need to check with some other people first.

We'd love to come down! You tempt me with a long weekend of board games, but it hurts taking off a Friday since that's our half day but they count it as full for time off Rolling Eyes . I'll ask her, but the weekend of the 13th may be better for us, just because we've got filming for a short on Monday after school, and possibly some preliminary stuff Sunday night.

Either weekend should be fine. The weekend of the 6th sounds like the better option with more activities, but if it doesn't work for everyone I should be good for the next weekend too. I think I will only have one vacation day to take, so I would be down Friday at the earliest.

It sounds like the 6th would be better on average so let's shoot for that and we'll plan the big stuff for Saturday so the later folks don't miss the big stuff.

So we're gonna skip roller derby in favor of the car show, Karin's team won't be skating in this one, just the b team.

So here's the current plan, I'm open to edits if anyone has suggestions/recommendations.

Thursday Night: first people arrive, maybe a trip to the beer store, dinner, a board game or two

Friday: I'm taking the day off, probably go out for lunch, beer store if we haven't stopped already, play some smash brothers or some other switch games, I'm making sous vide steaks for dinner, board games!

Saturday: breakfast at my place, hanging out in the morning, visit the new Guinness brewery tap room near me, visit Jail Break Brewery (oneo f my local favorites) and get lunch in their new restaurant, then we can choose from there what else goes on there are a few distilleries/breweries close by (Lost Ark is close, Sagamore Spirits is a 35 minute drive, Hysteria Brewery is 15 minutes), there's a pirate rum bar.

Sunday I figured we'd get out to the car show as it opened at 10am and be there for a few hours, get lunch in DC (some amazing stuff down there like great ramen shops, pretty much anything you can imagine, then see what time it is, we can maybe hit the car show again or maybe check out other DC stuff, probably plan to head back by 3-4 at the latest so people aren't getting home super late.

Sounds good to me. I verified with the person I work with and she will not be leaving until like the 11th so I should be good. When is everyone going down?
