    The 7:10 start time was established back when HDCC started in 2013. There also used to be a Rebel Coffee Club that met at the same time on Wednesdays at Java Shack, but they've gone underground or something.

    Yes, in an ideal world...!
    In this world alas, while a coffee stop doesn't have to be on my shortest route to work, it realistically can't be part of a total detour greater than probably 5 miles.

    I spend all day thinking about bikes and talking to people on the internet about them.

    The Shirlington Best Buns Wednesdays would be the ideal C.C. to participate in (right off the path to work) -- but the 7:10 start time means I'd arrive, skip any coffee, get 60 seconds to say hi to whoever was on hand exactly right then and then have to leave.
    The worst bit is no coffee / socializing in that scenario! Are there any regulars who currently hit the Shirlington gathering, but routinely arrive between 6:30 and 7:00?

    Also - are there any folks on routes favorable to Potomac Yard, to consider a coffee club gathering at the Potomac Yard Starbucks?

    (BTW -- where exactly is the Crystal City Coffee Club meeting point on Tuesdays? The Calendar entry only says: "Bring your coffee or buy it from nearby. Winter location is at Cosi nearby." Nearby to what??)
    Iím with you - itís a rare day I get to attend coffee club bc of my early start time (Iím at work by 7am!). So even the Georgetown early birds are still a little late for me (gotta get to work by 6:30am to change & get ready). I donít think anyone is interested in a 5:30 CC.

    Woohoo ... have tomorrow off...!
    So, as I keep forgetting to adjust on Wednesday and visit the Shirlington club on the way into work, I'm gonna try and drop in on the Arlington Coffee Club at Northside Social... anyone gonna be there?

    (Then gonna try and drop in on the Crystal City Fridays Waterpark, if I finish all my chores in time...)

    Look for rcannon; he's usually there. Tall guy with a big beard. Josh sometimes shows up, too. The others who are usually there are not as active on the forum as they used to be and people you likely have not met. Subby (Chris Shue) is wonderfully friendly and will make you feel welcome I'm sure. Likewise with GB (Greg Bain) if he is there. Just introduce yourself.

    I will likely be at FCC Swing's.

    Appreciate the assimilation but the small group of us who have coffee on Fridays is not a "Coffee Club." The Friday Coffee Club is, or was, at Java Shack. Have coffee where ever you like.... but please consider the etiquette of crashing some else's social experience.

    That sounds like a hard, "nobody else is welcome, thankyouverymuch".
    I was only suggesting it since it appears on the BAF Calendar as an open event.
