Update; The venue is now changed. details are posted here.
Tweetup Feb 28th 7 p.m tentative at La Tasca Rockville - http://tinyurl.com/2olbaf metro accessible red line
I know we have a share of activities in the DC metro area. I am comfortable with having meetups in the same place but another part of me says that we should move atleast one meetup around to experience places. The meetup we had at Jimmy's Tavern in Herndon this month is a good example. About 20- 25 people came and we all had fun.
The first criteria I had for a place is that it should be walkable distance from a Metro Station. I tried the Rockville library for a meeting but I am told that we can only reserve a meeting room if are a non-profit. I am not sure if I have the patience to register a non-profit and manage it yet. Then I approached Ken Skidmore General Manager - La Tasca Rockville to see if they have a private room . They have an area of the restaurant that is semi-private and might be suitable for our meeting. It can accommodate a group of 25 and I have made a reservation there. There are two Free parking garages right in front of the restaurant square.
Twitterati who have shown interest in attending are : @thursdayb, @batterista, @mindofandre,@lafauce, @nahumg ,@jillfoster, @TammyMunson, @susanreynolds , @whymommy @jjgardner3 @jablair @jonnygoldstein, @jeffhibbard
I am excited that Tammy Munson is coming. She is organizing the Podcamp DC and needs all our support. And Susan Reynolds who motivated the Frozen Pea movement for raising funds for Cancer Research.
Please comment if you can attend and I will update the blog. If there are more than 25 - I can ask the restaurant to accomodate or look for a alternative. Hope to see you all there !
