    It was almost comical watching a guy with a leaf blower on Connecticut Ave, NW yesterday trying to blow leave and grass cuttings. The 25 mph winds made it the work of Sisyphus.

    Evidently, if you fail to attend HDCC, you may not know where to go on Thursday.
    For Thursday, Nov. 11, we are back at Pentagon Row by the ice rink.

    So it was mentioned this morning that Whole Foods Thursday CC will usually be indoors for the winter (outside this AM, because nice weather). I am wondering which CC's are planning to remain outdoors, which indoors, and for those that vary with the weather, if anyone could (I know this is a difficult ask) somehow specify the weather conditions that will lead to indoors (or to outdoors)?

    For the benefit of those of us willing go to CC again, but not quite ready to eat indoors, even with vaxxed friends (or waiting to get boosted).

    TIA

    Tuesdays are at Mah Ze Dahr on Crystal Drive and inside when itís cold. The decision on inside or outside is based on negotiation among attendees on whether itís nice enough outside or not.

    It's probably safe to assume that CC will be indoors for the next few months, unless it's at least 50 degrees outside and there's sun at the outdoors location.

    Indoors locations are (I think) as follows: Mondays at Swing's on E. Monroe, Tuesdays at Mah Ze Dahr on Crystal Drive, Wednesdays at Best Buns in Shirlington, Thursdays at Whole Foods in Pentagon City, and Friday at Misha's on Prince Street. I generally keep my mask on when we're indoors.

    I mean if I could take my caffeine intravenously ......

    To be clear - I had my two shots months ago, and have been doing more things since then. But at least one member of my household is very COVID cautious, and I respect that - mostly I have been waiting to get my booster, and to see local case #s go down a bit further before unmasked indoor dining - ALX is down to 10 cases per 100,000 people per day, but national case #s are up (yeah, I know vax vs unvax, cases vs hospitalizations, etc - in my household we would like a lot more infor on long COVID) Plus I have this OCD thing where I insist on dining in one of those "igloos" before full indoor dining - we missed that last winter when we didn't go out to eat at all - I haven't managed that yet. Hopefully I will get my booster in the next few days, and we can manage an igloo meal soon, and then I can discuss it with my HH.

    OTOH 40 and cloudy seems like its fine for outdoor coffee, to me.

    Come early and be an influencer. I am sure some could be talked in to drinking outside. Last winter, several of us gathered most days in temperatures well below 40 and enjoyed good company and hot beverages.
