The Homecoming: venue update

So it seems things are moving along and I am on track to roll into DC in a week. (A week! After fourteen and a half months on the road!) For those looking to ride the final few miles into the District, we're still planning on meeting up in Old Town Alexandria at 3pm next Saturday -- did I mention it's only a week from today?? -- and cycling the last 8 miles of the Mt. Vernon Trail together, then snapping a few photos just over the Key Bridge at mile marker zero of the C&O Canal Towpath before making our way to Columbia Heights for some nibblies and a few drinks.

For those hoping to meet up afterwards for the beer-and-food portion of the homecoming activities, please join Ollie and me after 5pm at a new local hotspot, Social. (It's sprung up in the time since I've been gone and I've heard lots of good things. Thanks, Nicole, for helping with the logistics on this!) With a regularly changing menu and kicking happy hour specials, Social may well become one of our favorite hangouts. It's located at 1400 Meridian Place, NW in the hip and happenin' Columbia Heights neighborhood, just 3 or 4 blocks from the Columbia Heights metro stop on the green/yellow line.

It's a relatively safe neighborhood and there is some outdoor seating, but for those of you biking I'd advise bringing a bike lock. And for those of you daring enough to come dancing later, perhaps also a change of clothes. Unless you like to salsa in spandex.

  1. I can't believe the time has flown by and you're almost back in DC! What's next???

  2. What next? Good question. As usual, I am open to suggestions....

  3. Bummed that I'll miss this! Have a great time and...see you soon, I hope! :) DC bound!

  4. Hey Ibti, thanks much for the postcard. My family says hi and wishes you well. We had tons of tomatoes though they weren't as tasty as usual..probably time to add some compost. Glad to see you made it home safely. We'll keep in touch!
