Hello everyone. The fateful day dawns.
Plans are: meet up in the 6 o'clock hour at the Pinch. Some people know 6 might be early for them, and some people (your gracious author) are worried they might hit traffic as they have a 3 pm meeting in Richmond and can't leave the city til 3:30 as a result.
There is public-ish parking around the Pinch and there are garages, if you feel like it, nearby-ish as well. Google Maps can assist you.
I suspect the Pinch will be our mainstay for the evening. I know steve was looking at public transpo. blackbootz also has graciously offered to let me crash (admittedly, I kind of made an assumption on the phone call but he went along with it). I honestly think, depending on how hairy the evening gets, I may just drive home - if I'm good to drive the hour to bootz' place, I'm good to drive the next hour home, is my line of thought. steve either way if I am driving, Bethesda looks hella nearish to the Pinch so I can drop you back there.
Roll call for the remaining non-mentioned so we can get the level of HYPE some ELEVATION in this here THREAD:
