    I'm all for Crystal City! Jaleo can be a bit expensive and maybe too fancy as well. But maybe some place like the Tortoise and Hare, or Frankies (gay bar = fun) on 23rd street would be better options?

    As much as I like goofing off, I don't know if I'd attend much more than once/fortnight, and more likely it'd be once/month. A good option for me in the summer months would be something that actually combines riding and going to a few different places (CaBi pubcrawl?), although I guess then in theory you can't drink very much at all.

    Oo, going for the big guns eh? (renting that from Amazon RIGHT NOW)

    Freddie's on 23rd? They're fun and have decent food as I remember

    Thanks for doing this. Personally, I think the second question, "How often would you like to goof off?" should haev been "How often would you like to get together with forum members to goof off?" Otherwise, I'd answer it "all the time"!

    I love Standard but it's hard enough stalking a table for 4 let along a big party.

    The new Tortilla Coast is right off the 15th St cycletrack and the if the food is as good as the Cap Hill location I'd recommend it.

    Standard freaks me out because it always looks so crowded. I've never been in. Great place to check out parked bikes though.

    What about one HH generally South (Shirlington/CC), one generally West (Rosslyn/Clarendon/Ballston/FC), one central/SW (Foggy Bottom, Gtown, Rosslyn) and the final central/NE (Columbia Heights, Capital Hill, all those places that are too cool for me to know about)?

    Again, I probably can't go much, so take my suggestions with a grain of ... something.
    I had also thought of perhaps eliminating the Falls Church location in favor of something else, due to its proximity/redundancy to Shirlington/Cap City. However you just cannot beat the location for Chasin' Tails...literally feet from the W&OD; I saw that as a key factor. I'm not against switching from Chasin' Tails, though; there could be a splinter group Just have the Thursday commuter club I think maybe that is a topic for another thread though.

    But I'm really glad people like this idea; cool to see it taking on a life of its own!

    I really had a great time at cap city brewery, and the food/beer was really good too! Unfortunately, my commute has changed and that's way out of my way. I know the majority of the active people here are the Arlington-ish area, but it would be nice if at least once a month there was something in DC area. Georgetown, CapHill, etc, would be close enough for me to go to. Columbia Heights would be nice for those of us who are in Maryland or northern DC-ish areas, but not sure if we have enough. There's honestly no way that each location is going to be convenient for everyone, so "area focused" locations might work best. It seems like it breaks down in to the Arlington-ish area, the Georgetown area, then a bit more north area folks. Maybe a google map showing our "convenience zones" would help?
