    Since my work day doesn't start till 9:30 I will be able to stick around till 8:45. I'm suspicious of all you early morning folks. It ain't healthy to get up before 8:00.

    Oh, and there is a Cosi a block south as well for Starbucks haters. Still a chain, but they have good breakfast sandwiches +coffee. They appeared to give free stuff to Crystal City BTWW, so I'm willing to support them for that .
    Good point About Cosi, Emm. They did support the pit stop last week. Also their square bagels are tasty.

    I wish I could take credit for all of the idea, but I think Ian gets most of the credit. There's so many people that pass right by in the morning that it makes sense.

    Hope you recover quickly and that we see you out there soon.

But as we all know open containers in public spaces is illegal, and hiding behind bushes clutching a consecrator doppelbock is antisocial so please nobody do this.
    That gives me a great idea for the Crystal City Drinking From A Brown Paper Bag Club. It doesn't quite have the alliterative power of Crystal City Coffee Club but I can look past that.

    Hope to see you there!
    Here's to hoping I can eventually get a job over that way and become a regular. Great idea guys!


    It kinda starts on the late side though...

    Frequently Asked Questions:

    Q: I'm too good for these chain coffee stores, what should I do?
    A: Pour that French pressed Sumatran blend into a vacuum thermos and throw it in a bottle holder.
    If you're going that direction, Misha's is about 3 miles away. (It's still about 3 miles away if you're not going that direction.)

    If I lived out that way, you'd see me riding up with an Americano from Misha's. But I'll have to stick with Northside, Chinatown, or Peregrine. /snob

    As a natural night owl, I agree.

    One side effect of BTWD was discovering that even with my low average MPH I can get to Crystal City in the morning faster than I'd previously thought. I'll try swinging by on Tuesdays. Might even pick up something at Cosi, though I'll probably just get it to go as I don't want to chance the frenetic part of my commute (climb up Louisiana, followed by descent down N. Capitol in traffic) with any food in my stomach.

    If it starts too late for anyone, let me know.

    I threw out 7 as a time that I knew worked for the core group of folks that schemed the idea last week. I'll probably show up at more like 6:30.

    It works on the Freezing Saddles philosophy. If you think something should be different, like starting earlier, then just throw out that you're coming earlier and everyone should join you.

    Hope to see lots of you tomorrow morning. Looks like we will probably have great weather!

    Okay, if this actually happens more than once and looks regular (year round?), let me know and I'll add it to the Coffee Club sticky.

    I might be there tomorrow, perhaps no though. I might not be riding. My knee is all ganked, and I have to haul a bunch of crap to work (my xbox I'm selling to some co-workers). It'll be a game time decision! Don't forget to tell Andrea about it too!

    But thanks for posting the thread Judd.
