Update: at the recommendation of some of you, and the further endorsement of Spencer’s DC friends, we’re going to meet at Lost & Found (1240 9TH ST NW).
They won’t do group bookings on Fridays, but we are reserving a few tables, and will adjust from there. Happy hour is offered from 4-7, and we’ll be there by 5.
This is a super casual beer and whiskey bar (they don’t serve food, but you’re welcome to bring your own, or get pizza next door), and everyone must be 21+. You can pay for your drinks at the bar as you go, or run your own tab, but we’ll be keeping everything separate just for simplicity/sanity.
The nearest Metro station (I believe, please correct me if I’m wrong, I haven’t lived in DC for like 8+ years now) is Mt Vernon Sq/7th St-Convention Center Station, which serves the Green and Yellow lines.
Hope to see many of you there!
As we had such a nice time at our London Happy Hour a few months ago, we thought it would be nice to once again extend the invitation to y’all.
This is very last-minute, and is going to be very casual, so if you are interested in meeting up in DC on Friday evening between 5:30ish and 7:30ish, please comment below (using a valid email address).
Along those lines, if you’re familiar with a place that could comfortably accommodate a decent-sized group without requiring deposits, minimums, a single tab, or other formal arrangements, please share! We do have a cocktail bar in mind, but the viability of that space depends on how many people might be joining.
This is not where we’re going, this is in Melbourne, and probably wouldn’t be ideal for this situation, but I think you get the idea
We mainly want to keep this as informal as possible, especially since we’re doing this on short notice and I’ll have just flown in, but also because that makes for better conversations. Once we know how many people to expect we can choose a spot, and I’ll update the post and send out an email.
Also, if you’ll be in DC or surrounds next weekend and would like to attend FTU, tickets are still available for $219 using code LASTMINUTEDC. I’ll be doing three sessions on award travel, ranging from beginner to advanced (Matthew is joining for the hard stuff), and joining a general panel. Spencer will host a session on award sweet spots, and there are other great sessions as well.
And if neither works out, hopefully we’ll catch you next time!
