It's Third Thursday this week. It there is a certain non-essential portion of our community that could probably use a drink. Shall we convene? Cap City Brewer in Shirlington? We can start drinking at 5.30 p and stop when the govt actually opens?

I'm in. ;)

Great idea, though I hope we'll be back at work by then!

If we are back at work, I might not get there or might be quite late.

If we are back at work, I might not get there until late, but I'm in. :D

Do you have a POC there? I am glad to call and reserve our usual table.

If Y'are thinking about coming, give a head count.

I'd be glad to do that too. Will send you a PM.

How time flies when you're nonessential. I do believe I will partake of a cold one or four. (Could be a rainy ride home though.)

I expect I won't be able to make it this time.

10-16-2013, 09:19 AM
I'm in for Thursday probably around 5:30.

This may be up in the air if the shutdown ends and we get called back into work tomorrow. Please check back later tonight and/or tomorrow morning to see if the event is still on.

What does the shutdown have to do with it?
We don't get to work--we drink!
We have to go back to work--we drink!:rolleyes:

Due to popular demand, Third Thursday is on for tomorrow, rain or shine!

So far I know of only four people planning to come - klizotte, bobco85, dismalscientist and rootchopper. I made a 5:30 pm reservation for six under the covered part of the patio. The reservation is in the name Kathy/BikeArlington.

I might not make it or may get there late, but I'm sure they'll be flexible if anyone gets there early or if more tables need to be added.

Of course with government going back into business, that means we must all return to acting like inside the beltway a$$clowns. You know, setting up appointments you never intend to keep, so that you can cancel them to make yourself look all so important.

Well, um, having suggested the Third Thursday libations, I am likely to fink. The puppy run to purceville (yes, that is where the vet is) which was suppose to be today - is tomorrow.

We have five pugles who will be up for adoption, maybe starting this week, through Lost Dog Rescue

I plan to be there.

I hope there will be puppies.

I'll be there! Probably not till around 6:30 though, so drink slow. :)

Unfortunately I can't make it...wife is out of town and I've got this guy waiting on me (since we're sharing dog photos):


10-17-2013, 02:55 PM
Okay, then, here's my pup photo:


This isn't my dog. I don't have one. It's just some random photo I found on the web.

ARLnow has a Pet of the Week feature. This week's pet -- Hendrix the beagle.

You guys are killing me :-(

Sorry I missed out, the reason is brutally ironic.
