Boomer, that's a very nice offer, but I'm teleworking tomorrow so won't be coming from DC. You might get some other takers, though. See you there!

There are a bunch of ways to get there. If you go south on MVT to 4MR to Shirlington, you can take a right on Shirlington Road past the Exxon up to the light at Kenmore. Left on Kenmore to right on Walter Reed to Columbia Pike. Drafthouse is on the NW corner. If you'd like a more challenging hill, ride the W&OD to Walter Reed and ride up the monster.

Thank you for the route suggestion. I had enough of monsters on Sunday's Kill Bill ride, so I'll go with option 1:-)

I'm also going to Cinema & Drafthouse from Capitol Hill but 5:30 is probably too early for me. But if I see you, I'll be happy to direct you.

What time would work for you? I posted an early departure because I was unsure of the route. But if you know it, we leave at a later time, FYI.

How about 5:45? I should be able to be there by then.
