Cool MD/VA/DC BB Party

It's time for those local (or willing to drive) to the Washington DC metropolitan area to get together and share some food, drinks & laughs.

Please select which date works best for you if you intend to come.

We'll pick a location at a later time (somewhere as central as possible to those who are going).

Hope to see you all there!!

Thanks for starting this thread Amy! So far it looks like we've got some work to do to find a date that works for more than one of us though - anyone that would like to suggest alternate dates please feel free to provide your input. I chose the 31st, but we could probably do either...

To anyone interested in joining that lives in the area, but are having schedule difficulties - this is not as major a gig as the BB party in Atlantic City last year, which involved hotels and plane tix etc. This is an informal eve of dinner/drinks for those of us in the DC metro area, meaning you don't need to set aside an entire wknd (or even an entire day) for it. Of course, any 'out-of-towners' are also welcome!

Depending on who signs up and where you're coming from, we can meet somewhere in MD or VA or DC. Let's hear from you!

This sounds like a blast....sign us up! We'll keep an eye on what date "wins" (We voted for 3/31 FYI).

Alright DC area locals, it looks like we're a go for April 1 - please, no pranks!

The next big decision is the location. I think the two easiest spots - located near 495 - are Bethesda's White Flint (Bertucci's, PF Changs) and Tyson's Corner (Maggianos, Brio Tuscan Grill, Gordon Biersch). I'm fairly certain all of those places take reservations (or phone ahead). I'm also open to any suggestions - I just think we need to choose a place that will take a reservation (or phone ahead) being that we're a party of 8 and it's a Saturday night.

Looking forward to it!!

We would love for the party to be in Tysons area - in fact if that's where we end up, we're perfectly fine with either Friday or Saturday eve. There are bazillions of restaurants in the area, all within a mile of the beltway (if we choose Tysons I'll take care of reservations etc)...I know of at least one member couple (not listed in the above vote) that would like to attend but is only available on Friday eve.

Any preference from the rest of you on:
Tysons vs Bethesda?
Friday vs Saturday?

i haven't been in that area in years but mapquest will get me there. just tell me which day, what time, a name, and an address and i can be there.

from whatever list, if you can find out which ones definitely take reservations that might be key. i don't even know the names of any places there any more.

For selfish reasons, we would pick Tysons.
Saturday still works best. If it's Friday, we'll have to limit our time there. We have a very busy EARLY morning on Saturday, with the whole family heading in several directions.

Tysons is only about 1:45 from me.... we might even be able to make it. Saturday night works better for us... I have a brother that lives up there so we may be able to crash at his house..

Well, it seems like everyone is ok with it being in the Tyson's area. Now we're back to which night is better Friday or Saturday. Either is fine with us. If you haven't weighed in yet, please do.

I'm a big fan of Clyde's too, in fact that's where Loren and I had our rehearsal dinner

Hoo - you're close enough to make it, and if you can't stay at your bro's you can stay with us in Reston! See you in the NIT...

Sherry - I can get you (everyone) good directions if needed.

Elisa - stop bragging!

All - include spouse info in reply so we know how many to make a reservation for.

Yes, I spoke to Jimbo and he thought this was a BB party in Aruba. He realized his mistake after he voted.

Clyde's is fine with us, we've been there several times. The only reason we didn't suggest it was the limited menu. I didn't know if there would be something for everyone.

But we're good with either night and pretty much any restaurant.

Thanks C&B.. Hokies pulling for Hoos.. The Earth may come off it's axis.. Just kidding.. thanks... I'd still trade in our 3 B-ball victories over you guys (or maybe 2) for the win in football!

Unfortunately we may wind up in Charlotte the weekend of the party. I'd love to meet everyone.

Elaine.. get your butt down to see us!

Looks like it'll be up to my Terps to win the NIT after last nite's Cardinification of the Hoos...

I would agree with Amy, Clyde's is a good spot but it's menu may be a bit limited for an eclectic group. Any comments from the rest of you re their menu? If everyone's OK we can roll with it. If not, here's another option: http://www.cafedeluxe.com/ I also like the looks of that Gordon Biersch Brewpub place...

Tyson's has MANY restaurants, so it's just a matter of picking one. Loren and I have a bad history with Maggiano's, so we'd like to exercise a veto there

It looks like 8 confirmed for Friday the 31st, does that sound right?
(Cathy/Brett, Amy/Chris, Sherry/Murray, Kevin/Loren)
Hoo, give a firm yea or nay asap so we know if we should plan for 9 or 10...

Hey.. A team with a Drunk Tree as a mascot pounded us.. Arghhhh! Hoos looked pathetic last night.. I'm still in shock. Oh well.. there's always Lacrosse...

Anyway.. I still cannot commit to the gathering yet. I won't know until this weekend so It's still tentative..

Fri. has our vote because it would be a bon voyage party for us. We leave Dulles Sat. morning for St.Maartens for a week with my sister & husband.We will be staying with our daughter in Manasses,so anywhere would be acceptable. Hope to see everyone soon.

Let's make it Friday nite, and we can add Tom and Donna to the crew! Hoo, we'll wait to hear from you on MOnday before we reserve anything. Whatcha thing gang, Tysons at like 6:30? Does anyone need it to be later to allow for traffic or anything? Cafe Deluxe look OK (or other suggestions)?

Once we firm everything up I'll reserve and assist with directions

Tysons sounds great, and I think everyone will be able to find something they like on the Cafe Deluxe menu. We should have no problems getting there by 6:30. See y'all soon! C&B

Default Re: MD/VA/DC BB Party

The Tysons area is notorious for it's traffic, and on a Friday afternoon it may be worse than normal, so keep that in mind when considering the 6:30 start. We will have no probs making it, but I'll wait to hear from Sherry and Amy and Tom/Donna (and Hoo) before anything gets set in stone. Glad to hear that C&B are on board for this one!

Looking forward to it, I can feel it falling into place!

Don't feel bad ladies - we'll be sure to talk about both of you! This wouldn't be One Happy BB w/o you two, so neither is a BB party - you'll be with us in spirit, and you'll be a part of the conversation!

As Elaine insinuated, it all depends on how much we lie Of course it's all good, we'll miss you guys!

Well.. Unfortunately Deb and I won't be able to make it.. Saturday was "iffy" and Friday is definitely a no go.. I'll be flying back from Atlanta that evening and won't get back into town until approx 7:00. Thanks for the attempt... You guys have a great time and we'll see you at the next one.

OK, so Hoo is out for the spring fling, so I believe we have a firm group of 10. It sounds like we've agreed on Tysons Corner on Friday 3/31, with the following group:
Sherry and Murray
Amy and Chris
Loren and Kevin
Donna and Tom
Cathy and Brett
If the time is OK at 6:30 and everyone is OK with Cafe Deluxe I'll reserve us a table for 10. One last confirmation from each of you please, either here or in a PM, and I'll set it up. Let me know that the place and time is OK, or suggest a different one...
http://www.cafedeluxe.com/

Anyone else wanna join us?? If so just get in touch (asap)!

Thanks D&T - Sherry and Murray are also 100% in, so we're 6 down and 4 to go! I just want to be sure that the place is OK with everyone, and that the time won't be a problem (later is OK if necessary)...

We're in! Place and time are fine. If we get there early, we'll hang out at the bar. Can't wait to meet our new Aruba friends in person.
