    As Chris said, but it is officially called CCCC.
    And it's BYOC, because there are no coffee shops there.

    The Coffee Club formerly called WTFCC (Whole Thursday Foods Coffee Club) will be meeting outside this Thursday, February 25, because we wanna. Also because it's supposed to be pretty warm.
    Everyone is welcome. If this is your first coffee club venture, early birds generally arrive about 7am and lingerers leave between 8-8:30. I plan to be there shortly after 7.

    IMPORTANT!! - CHANGED LOCATION.

    Not at Whole Foods.
    We will be meeting by the Pentagon Row ice skating rink. There's outdoor seating there and--better than a coffee shop--a Coffee Lab!

    Just noticed this, secstate.
    Note that HDCC on Wednesdays has been meeting regularly in Shirlington in the walkway next to Guapo's

    Friday coffee club has been meeting at Peregrine near Eastern Market. They have outdoor seating. Early birds usually arrive just after 8am.

    Hello bike and coffee lovers,

    After last Thursday's success, we are now officially moving Thursday coffee club to Pentagon Row, next to the ice rink.
    Last week we had some surprise guests: Rod Smith and LSG
    Everyone is welcome at any and all coffee clubs. Check the calendar on the Freezing Saddles home page.

    It needs a new name: PROTH CC, perhaps? Pentagon Row Official Thursday Coffee Club
    Suggestions welcomed.

    To bring you up to date, Pentagon Row is no more, henceforth, it shall be known as Westport. So, you might want to consider WCC (Westport Coffee Club), WNLCC (Westport at National Landing Coffee Club) or my favorite TCC (Thursday Coffee Club). The later will allow flexibility if the neighborhood gets renamed or the coffee club is forced to move again. ��

    Sorry I didn't see this earlier. The Freezing Saddles calendar shows the 8am Friday coffee club at Peregrine Coffee near Eastern Market.
    I believe the Maryland people are still meeting at Board and Brew on Friday mornings. If so, maybe one of them can add that back into the calendar.

    I am posting just the opening paragraphs, not the whole article because I respect the NYT's copyright - but the opinion expressed should be understandable to those of us who attend coffee clubs (the author is a little friendlier to electric blowers than I'd like):

    https://www.nytimes.com/2021/10/25/o...emissions.html

    The First Thing We Do, Let’s Kill All the Leaf Blowers
    By Margaret Renkl

    "NASHVILLE — Into these perfect October afternoons, when light gleams on the red dogwood berries and the blue arrowwood berries and the purple beautyberries; on the last of the many-colored zinnias and the last of the yellow marigolds and the last of the white snakeroot flowers; on the shining hair of babies in strollers and the shining ponytails of young mothers and the tender, shining heads of old men walking dogs — into the midst of all this beauty, the kind of beauty that makes despair seem like only a figment of the midnight imagination, the monsters arrive.

    They come in a deafening, surging swarm, blasting from lawn to lawn and filling the air with the stench of gasoline and death. I would call them mechanical locusts, descending upon every patch of gold in the neighborhood the way the grasshoppers of old would arrive, in numbers so great they darkened the sky, to lay bare a cornfield in minutes. But that comparison is unfair to locusts. Grasshoppers belong here. Gasoline-powered leaf blowers are invaders, the most maddening of all the maddening, environment-destroying tools of the American lawn-care industry."
