Let's do it again! August 21 at Capitol City Brewing Co. in Shirlington, starting at 5 pm and likely not ending until well past GP Cross Practice. New folks and cyclocrossers welcome too!

As usual, please let me know if you plan to come so we can have seats for you. (We ran a little short last time despite my adding a few.)

Can't make it this time, because I'm running my own event followed by a Climatini Happy Hour (http://www.steveoffutt.com/2014/08/green-business-roundtable-and-climatini.html) (if you can't get to Shirlington, folks, mine is in DC)

I will be leading a short group bike ride at work around 5, so sometime after 6 I should be there.

Bumping this up. It looks like the chance for rain is trending downward. :-)

Does one think that Rule #9 does not apply to happy hours? I'm in.

I'll have my rain cape.

I'll be coming home to an empty house that day - Mrs KWL will be out of town. I may as well make this my first third Thursday Happy Hour. If weather demands, you may see a second rain cape. Go forth.

Rockford and I are planning to be there. We probably won't have our two young cyclists with us, though they maintain that they could change their minds.

We've got about 17 people so far. Anyone else? Does anyone need any additional information? It should be a great day out on the patio!

I assume The Kid is coming. I will see if The Wife is interested.

Except those who need to save stick figure chairs for them to sit in, lol! Thanks for the update.

I just wanted to let you all know that, while it looks any rain will hold off until after 7 p.m., we'll be under the covered part of the patio tonight.

Also, I'll bring several instant rain vests with me in case anyone needs one for the ride home. (Mine worked great for me last night, even though I waited too long to put it on.)

There is also covered bike parking available nearby if needed.

I'd like to stop by. Still fairly new to the forum and I've never attended any of the events.

Welcome - I added you to the list! Please let me know if you have any questions.

Here is some parking information for both cars and bikes: 6462

Capitol City Brewing Co. is right next to Garage No. 3 in the diagram. In case you're coming by car, parking is free in most of the Shirlington garages after 5 p.m.

Ok, here comes the rain. It's hard to guesstimate how the line of the severe cell that has just passed Dulles will track, hopefully it will stay west of Shirlington.

Thanks so much to everyone who came and made last evening so much fun! Thanks too for all the helpful rsvps, even the last minute ones - that helped us have seats for all 24 of us! It was a great evening to spend outdoors and the weather cooperated for the most part. It was nice to meet KWL, ajhokie and no falls too. Let's do it again next month!

I am old to the list, but new to the area near Shirlington, so please add me to the list.
