    Default BTWD Tour de Pit Stops

    So last year on my way into work I stopped at Vienna (tshirt pick up), Falls Church, East Falls Church Metro, Ballston, Rosslyn, Crystal City (gotta get my jersey), Gravelly Point, then USDA. I also learned that not all pit stops are created equal and some may not be worth going out of the way for them (sparse attendance, no swag, etc. I want to hit a few more this year and am planning to hit the DC Wharf, and maybe Le'Enfant and the SW BID but I don't know if they will be worth it. Also, is Georgetown Waterfront worth it? Never been over there before. My work schedule can be pretty flexible so I'm not too worried about the time getting in, just am trying to route plan.

    EDIT: Also last year I hit New District in the afternoon, but was thinking about hitting Heavy Seas in Rosslyn this year. Any thoughts on that? Where do most people go? I think the rain last year impacted attendance.

    Did New District give out pint glasses last year like they did two years ago? That's why I'm thinking of stopping there today instead of Heavy Seas.

    Nice!!
    Recovering from a nasty cold/flu bug most likely given to me while visiting my darling niece and nephew (both under 4) - so this is my 2nd consecutively-missed BTWD -- and there have only been 2 since I got my bike
    I'm either not off to a great start -- or I'm on an unbroken anti-streak!

    My wife usually works at New District with a table but found out this year they aren't having tables, so it might be dead there.
