    After seeing many of the other posters here, I’m surprised a DC meetup isn’t in the works.

    Or, is it?

  4. mbressman says:

    Check out nycgarages.com to see about finding possibly cheap parking garages close to the meet-up – hope this helps anyone who is driving in!

  5. Benny Gesserit says:

    So there’s no way I can convince you to move it to the following Saturday? What if I sang? Threatened to Sing? Promised to NOT sing?

    Why, I’d even show my receipt!

    Sigh – maybe next year.

  6. Nick1693 says:

    I can’t go, but I’ve been to NYC before.

    If you aren’t from NYC/around there:
    Houston = house-ton.

    (For like a week after I left NYC, I got pissed when people said it like the Texas city.)

  7. HRGirl wants a cookie says:

    I’ll be there! I was excited because this bar is close to my office then I stupidly took tomorrow off, so now I’m making a special trip just to meet you all.

  8. trinidon2k says:

    i’ll be there!

  9. HesNoKennedy says:

    Chicago anyone? I’ve been developing a rating system of Chicago bars based on seating availability, bathroom layout, and coat storage since the years slightly before I should have been in said bars.

    You all watched me smash my Tivo on here three years ago, will I be welcome? I work a couple of blocks away.

    I’ll be there early to take advantage of street parking, thanks for the map
