    I'm not sure where the precision of 7:10 came from for HDCC at Best Buns, but I tend to get there a bit before 7:00, especially in the Summer when I don't have to find as much clothing to wear.

    Thanks -- I opted to edit the Google Calendar entry for CCCC, to populate the Location field with the Water Park.

    One of the reasons Iíve never considered making one of these is because Iím also an early bird.

    My commute to Crystal City takes me through Potomac Yards. Which Starbucks did you mean? The one across from the Toyota dealer?

    Thanks but that one's too far afield from my work route.

    Yes, I was specifically thinking the Starbucks across Rt 1 from Jack Taylor Toyota, since it has some outdoor seating (for nice weather) as well as a large common table inside.
    (EDIT: Though it has no bike racks - I always end up locking up to one of the handicapped parking-space sign posts.)

    My guess is they are on the Google Calendar with such specific start times, to create a "stepped" presentation visually -- so that they more visually stand out from one another when they overlap... vs. any agreed-upon formal starting time...

    Nector Coffee & Wine Bistro at Hume & Mt. Vernon & Commonwealth (it's a fun intersection) is probably closer to your work than that Starbucks. Less corporate too. And they have bike racks, though there would be no reason to lock up.

    I could swing that without overshooting the office much at all. I currently pass directly by the Starbucks on my bike route, which is why it sprang to mind.
    (Red route = normal path. Orange route if trying Nector)

    IMO, in an ideal world, coffee isn't obtained from somewhere along your shortest commute. It's a lot better if you go out to Leesburg or somewhere similar.
